Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Welcome to the Lodge of Leaping Laughter, located in the Valley of Minneapolis, MN! We are an organization of women and men dedicated to celebrating the mysteries of our fraternal order, both publicly and privately.
Celebrations and Events!
Join us for public celebrations of the Gnostic Mass (Liber XV)! The Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO or O.T.O.) hosts and presents the celebration of the Gnostic Mass on a regular basis. This celebration is described by Aleister Crowley as “the central ritual of the O.T.O., public and private,” and in its performance attendees can participate in the power of a group magical rite, regardless of their levels of experience, attainment, or understanding. Whether you’re attending your first formal magical rite, or just interested in tapping into the 93 current to advance your own personal Great Work, all are welcome to the Mass.
In addition, Leaping Laughter hosts regular Equinox and Solstice celebrations! Attune yourself to the seasonal flow and transition of the year, and celebrate the changing of the seasons with friends and fellow magicians. Seasonal rituals are usually Thelemic in nature and presentation, and are open to the public.
Attend our regularly held Ritual Night, perhaps the longest-running, most-regularly attended occult training workshop in the Twin Cities. The first rule of Ritual Night is … everyone must perform a ritual! (You can talk about it if you want to.) No one comes who doesn’t participate in some role, but don’t worry, this is like a Magickal Dojo, with people of various levels of attainment present and participating, and at least one “Master Magician” ready to step in if necessary. we have scripts, props, tools, and a full set of ceremonial magick weapons. Rumor has it there’s a Magical Circle of Solomon in the closet, and some Enochian tablets upstairs that look like they’d make some kind of floor.
Whether you’re interested in casual converstation over wine ( the first Wednesday of the month finds us at various venues around Minneapolis that are conducive to good speaks), or more interested in in-depth discussions or formal lectures on Hermetics, Astrology, Renaissance Solomonic Conjurations, Magick in Theory and Practice, and the Thelemic application of Kundalini Yoga, there’s something going on at Leaping Laughter that will meet you where you’re at.
