meeting at Ballard Oddfellows Hall, Seattle.
The work of the Lodge of the Lions' Gate is to
offer ritual training to SOL Students and to further the aims
of the SOL. Much of the practical work is concerned with protecting
and healing the environment.
Companion: Students who have completed the SOL
First Degree Correspondence Course, and Students in good standing
in the School with the permission of their Supervisor, who will
participate in Temple Ritual Meetings on a regular basis.
Distance Companion: Qualified SOL Students who
are unable to regularly attend Lodge of the Lions' Gate meetings
because of travel constraints, but will link-up astrally with
Lodge Ritual Meetings on a regular basis. Distance Companions
will be paired with an Office in the physical Temple.
Spouse, partner, or close friend of a Companion,
who while not actively pursuing the SOL Course, is in sympathy
with the aims of the School and the Lodge, will abide with Lodge
decisions, practices and procedures, and will participate in Lodge
Ritual Meetings on a regular basis.
Students of other Schools with aims and practices
compatible with those of the Servants of the Light, and who wish
participate in ritual training and work. Such students may be
admitted on the same terms as SOL Students with the written consent
of an officer, supervisor or tutor of their mother organization.
N.B. In Temple work no distinction is made between
the various categories; all participants are addressed as "Companion
-- " or by their Office.
