Membership in O.T.O. is open to all men and women who are free, at least 18 years old, and of good report (see below). We are a dues collecting organization, with all members paying annual dues, plus fees levied for their initiations.
Good Report: In order to establish “good report”, your application must be signed by two sponsors who are already I° initiates of O.T.O. Prospective sponsors will generally want to get to know you before signing your application, which may involve your attendance with them at several local body events, or time spent with them privately.
Therefore, the path to becoming an initiate member of O.T.O. involves contacting us to obtain an application for initiation and submitting it along with the appropriate sponsorship, dues and fees.
All members are entitled to the introductory degrees of O.T.O., after which further advancement in the Order is by invitation only. We encourage all of our members to actively participate in our events – as you progress, there are opportunities to participate in local and international Order administration, governance, as well as our ecclesiastical and initiation roles. Members with an interest in the Gnostic Catholic Mass (Liber XV) and related services can begin training as Officers (Priests, Priestesses & Deacons) from relatively early on in O.T.O. membership.
More information about our System is available in our authorized publications and can be provided upon request.
