Lion & Serpent is the official periodic journal of Sekhet-Maat Lodge. The journal accomplishes its mission to promote the Thelemic current by providing a platform to draw out new creations unique to our membership and our valley of Portland, Oregon in addition to publishing important historical works foundational to Thelema and Ordo Templi Orientis. The discipline of creative expression taking myriad forms, Lion & Serpent publishes material ranging from research, ritual, and critical opinion to poetry and visual art in effort to project Sekhet-Maat's initiated essence into the world and to record our labors for posterity and reflection.

You can Read Online, Sponsor, or Submit your creations to Lion & Serpent. WE NO LONGER OFFER PAPER SUBSCRIPTIONS.
