Caerae Fratres et Sorores,

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

As you know, Vortex Oasis is hosting the April 2012 meeting of the Electoral College. This is the O.T.O. body which governs the affairs of the Man of Earth. The College meets four times a year, once virtually, and the rest of the time traveling to different locations in the country. This time it’s our turn! We were chosen by the EC and by Brother Douglas Blake, who will be leaving his position on the college. Here’s the link for more info on the college: http://ec.oto-usa.org/.

Electoral College Meeting – tyled to V’
The meeting will be held Saturday, April 14 and Sunday, April 15, at the South Tacoma Masonic Association in the lodge hall. The meeting itself is open only to V’ and above.

Vortex Spring Teach-In
The Vortex community plans two days of workshops, rituals, and meditations in the dining hall. These activities are open to everyone! If you haven’t checked into Vortex lately, this is a great time to stop in – if you are a Mass regular you will not want to miss this. Especially recommended for those of you who have been waiting for a Saturday event!

If you are a member of the Vortex community and have a class you would like to give or a ritual to debut, please contact me offline and we’ll be happy to put you on the schedule. FYI – the class, ritual and meditation schedule will remain flexible throughout the event.

We have also extended an invitation to members of the Horizon community to join us in the dining hall for our activities and for lunch.

Reception: Hotel Murano lobby bar, 8 p.m. – whenever.

Hospitality
Food: the Vortex community will provide lunch for attendees on Saturday and Sunday. The organizing committe will provide salads and sandwiches. Please bring a potluck dish if you can!

Lodging: we have three homes for electors travelling from out of town who request hospitality. All of these have pets. If you have room in your home to take a guest, especially a room without a cat, please contact me offline.

Because of the small size of our body, we have asked the Anahata Rose Croix Chapter in Seattle to provide hospitality to members from the Psyche Eros Rose Croix Chapter who will be travelling from Portland to attend the EC meeting. However, if you have room and would like to host an out of town guest, please let me know and I will pass that information on to the respective chapters.

Hotels:
http://www.hotelmuranotacoma.com/ – about $150 a night
http://bestwesternwashington.com/hotels/best-western-lakewood-motor-inn – about $85-105 per night, most rooms have microwave and fridge.

See you there!

Love is the Law, love under will.

Vortex Summer Retreat

We had a wonderful Summer Retreat at the home of our Deputy Master on the fabulous Andersen Island this past Saturday. And making a very fun and informative Qabalah 101 class was Emeritus/Past Master Brandy and Master Ted. Greatly informative and presented in several different ways to give us lots of different ways to think about and use the Qabalah.

We also  were treated to a lovely walk through a nature trail and an old farm on the Island followed by a lovely ritual presentation of Gretchen Faulk’s Vespers of Nuit.
