Lodge of the Lions' Gate

A short history of the formation of Lodge of the Lions' Gate As of 2003, Lodge of the Lions' Gate is in its tenth year as an entity: the following significant dates are excerpted from the Lodge.

Chronology:

November 28th 1992: S.O.L. Students' Group Meeting held at home of Peter Cawley, Lantzville, B.C.

May 5th 1993: S.O.L. Students' Group Meeting held at Friends' Meeting House, Vancouver, B.C. In attendance: Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki, who granted permission to form a Working Group with a view to becoming an SOL Lodge.

September 18th 1993: Inaugural Meeting, with official Lodge Ritual, for the S.O.L. Lodge of the Lion's Gate Working Group at Friends' Meeting House, Vancouver, B.C.

July 29-30th 1994: Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki formally raised the Lodge of Lions' Gate as an SOL Lodge, at a 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.

Membership Categories:

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.

Associate Companion:

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.
