Rites of Eleusis

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.

Here are our copies of Crowley's Rites of Eleusis, with notes about this year's presentation. At the end of this page, we also have a collection of Rites scripts written by various members of our local community.

The 2012 Rites of Eleusis were presented by Sirius Encampment, OTO, between 5 May and 9 June 2012. Except for Venus, these Rites were not staged. Instead, they were group readings of the scripts. Everyone who attended was invited to read a part. We decided who reads which part just before starting.

The Rites were 5 days apart, beginning on a Saturday and ending on a Monday nearest the full moon. The 2012 cycle was:
