About SOL Lodges

Wherever there are enough students, we encourage the formation of study or working groups, provided the conditions are right and there is a desire to work with others on esoteric and spiritual matters. Many students do indeed want to work with others, while others prefer to work alone.

If the work of such a group is satisfactory, and the necessary interest, expertise and dedication is there, a Lodge may be founded on initiative of the Director of Studies. The general focus varies from lodge to lodge, depending on the circumstances, and they may even vary as to their particular Tradition - we have Egyptian lodges, Hermetic Lodges, Celtic Lodges and so forth in the SOL - but all lodges operate within the group mind of the Servants of the Light School of Occult Science.

Some of these lodges hold occasional open meetings or public rituals. Other may invite non-members from time to time. Still others may work in a totally withdrawn fashion, never revealing to outsiders when and where they work.

It should be emphasised that membership of an SOL Lodge does not form a required part of the SOL curriculum. Not every student of the esoteric wants to work with others, or has enough time and energy to devote to group or Lodge work. The correspondence course always forms the core of the SOL training; the Lodges are an additional opportunity for those who want to go deeper into practical, intense group work.

To become a member of an SOL Lodge, you must have attended the three Ritual Magic Workshops, and you must have completed at least Lesson 12 of the SOL First Degree Correspondence Course. If you are not an SOL member, but have attended the Ritual Magic Workshops, you can still apply for membership, provided someone in the Lodge you are applying to can vouch for you. A certain percentage of the total membership of a Lodge may consist of so-called Affiliate Members.

We must also point out that membership of a Mystery Lodge is not a right to be demanded, it is a privilege to be granted at the discretion of the leaders of the Lodge. Entry may be refused for a variety of reasons, some of which may have to do with the dynamics of the group at the particular time you are applying. This does not mean that you cannot apply again at a later date.

Many of the SOL Lodges have Outer Courts where newcomers are trained before they are admitted to the Temple, where the deeper work is done. The time spent in the Outer Court of a Lodge varies depending on the Lodge, your experience, and other factors.

Here be the Lodges...

Daughter Schools

"Lodges within a school are the "children" of that school and, like children they grow, change, and begin to express their own individual styles and ways of working. This is to be expected and is applauded by the 'Mother' school. If the teaching has been assimilated well the next stage is reached and a Lodge in effect breaks away from its matrix and becomes a school in its own right." - Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki
