E.C. Weekend

From October 15th through the 17th of 2010 the Dove and Serpent Oasis hosted the quarterly meeting of the Electoral College of the United States, O.T.O.

Friday the 15th at 8pm we had a casual reception to welcome our electors at the Dove+Serpent Oasis Temple. Food, drinks and stimulating conversation was had by all.

On Saturday the Oasis catered the food for the Electoral College's meeting. The electoral college consists of Eleven individuals and "has full control of the affairs of the Men of Earth... the appointment is for Eleven Years. Volunteers must renounce for that period all further progress in the Order." (The Equinox, Vol. 3, Number 10, p. 175).

Saturday, Dove and Serpent Oasis members, the Electoral College and their guests all met for dinner at the No Mas! Cantina in Atlanta's art district, Castleberry Hill.

After a wonderful dinner we all convened at Avatar Events group for a dance performance by friends of the Oasis: The Syzgany Sisters. Our own Sister Alyssa also participated in the magickal dance performance. We thank Brother Bobby Creech for adding the musical accompaniment.

The weekends festivities culminated with our celebration of The Gnostic Mass on Sunday the 17th. The Priest was Brother Dan Delage & our Priestess Sister Shannon Delage. They both provided us with, as always, a wonderful performance of the mass.

We wish to give Brother Dan Delage our warmest thanks as this weekend marked his valedictory meeting. We of the Dove and Serpent Oasis sincerely thank Dan for 11 years of service!
