About Us

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

The aim of the Sanctuary is to lead each aspirant toward their own individual Will through self initiation in our Thelemic Rite and the set up of localised study groups.

"We shall bring you to Absolute Truth, Absolute Light, Absolute Bliss." - LIBER PORTA LUCIS

Please note: Although our method of study and practice is based upon the A∴A∴, the Sanctuary of Sanctum is not a branch of the A∴A∴ or claim any such lineage. We simply follow the guides set out by the UR-OTO - a return to the simple, to the pure and heartfelt current, to the Origins and that we may pass on into the realms of the Secret Doctrines of Hermetic Science...

"This Knowledge is not for all men; few indeed are called, but of these few many are chosen." - LIBER PORTA LUCIS

No man or woman over the age of 21 is refused as a Student of the Sanctuary of Sanctum although only those that show the dedication may become an initiate. If one feels the Calling of Thelema to begin this journey, we invite you to contact us.

We teach and test students by way of studying a specific set of texts, laid out in the Student Reading List, for a period of at least three months.

After such time, the Student may then request the examination in orer to become an initiate of then Sanctuary of Sanctum . Once initiated into the Sanctuary, the Probationer 0° shall continue with further study and practice.

The work of each of the grades within the Sanctuary is based upon the following brief outline of the system.

The intention is for them to develop an understanding of their own Practice and needs.

"We therefore who are without the chains of ignorance, look closely into the heart of the seeker and lead him by the path which is best suited to his nature unto the ultimate end of all things, the supreme realization, the Life which abideth in Light, yea, the Life which abideth in Light." - LIBER PORTA LUCIS"
