The Ordo Aeternus Vovin (OAV) is a not-for-profit, religious, spiritual order dedicated to helping gay and bisexual men discover themselves and their place in the universe. We do this by teaching the Law of Thelema and the techniques of meditation and ceremonial magick. Our system is a synthetic system composed of several traditions of western ceremonial magick, Sumerian mythology, tantric practices, an "invented" queer mythos and theology, Thelema and meditation.
We are organized in a roughly lodge style structure in which local bodies may apply for and receive a charter to practice and teach. The national organization provides support, direction and the general teachings of the order but most initiates work within a local camp, lodge or temple.
The OAV was founded in 2007 by Frater Ea after he spent several years teaching the concepts of Thelema and ceremonial magick to gay and bisexual men at events such as Pagan Spirit Gathering and Between the Worlds. The OAV follows a sex positive spirituality in which psycho-sexual energies are recognized as part of the creative impulses of the universe.
