    2021-10-02  11:00 - 12:00

    Daughter of Sunset Lodge, Vancouver BC
    Open to the public

    “In all systems of religion is to be found a system of Initiation, which may be defined as a process by which a man comes to learn that unknown Crown. … Now the Great Work is one, and the Initiation is one, and the Reward is one, however diverse are the symbols wherein the Unutterable is clothed” (“Liber LXI vel Cause: The Preliminary Lection”).

    Join us in this 4-part discussion series where we talk about representative schools of initiation from antiquity till today. Readings will be suggested, to help us be on the same page and to refresh our memories. Discussion threads that may weave through this series include the questions: Is there a connection and continuity between these ancient and late antique mystery religions and contemporary initiatic orders? And, are there elements from these historical initiatic orders which we could further incorporate within OTO? These conversations are meant as thought experiments, and questions are welcome.

    The subject of our third discussion are Freemasonry, the Theosophical Society, and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

    Suggested readings are:

    "Freemasonry: A Very Short Introduction" by Andreas Onnerfors

    "Brief History of the Theosophical Society" https://www.theosophical.org/ts-network/79-about-us-sp-709/society/1040-history-of-the-theosophical-society
