"The initiatic system intensely facilitates personal as well as spiritual development through a systematic program of ritual initiation and spiritual disciplines. Theurgy, contrary to popular misunderstanding, is primarily a tool for Self realization and transformation, rather than merely a means of causing change in the outer world."

Golden Dawn

bullet The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn ® "The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn® and the Ordo Rosae Rubeae et Aureae Crucis, R. R. et A. C.® are two divisions of an initiatic and magical Order which were founded by high-ranking Freemasons (Woodman, Wescott, and MacGregor Mathers) in England in 1888 and 1892 respectively. Although the exact origins of the Order remain obscure as well as controversial, its historical importance lies primarily in its brilliant synthesis of mythical and magical material from such varied sources as the Fama Fraternitatis (the first published Rosicrucian document), The Egyptian Book of the Dead, Cornelius Agrippa, Tycho Brahe, and John Dee. Since the publication of salient aspects of the Order's theurgical system by Israel Regardie, the Order has impacted nearly every aspect of the western esoteric community. Today the Ordo Rosae Rubeae et Aureae Crucis, R. R. et A. C. operates Temples of The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn around the world, as well as a fully consecrated Vault of the Adepti."

This organization promotes the teachings of the original Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, a magical fraternity founded in London in 1888 by Dr. William Wynn Westcott and Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers, which ceased to exist under that name in 1903 but which continued for a number of years under the names of two spin-off organizations, the Stella Matutina and the Alpha et Omega."
bullet The Open Source Order of the Golden Dawn We are a community of magickal practitioners, mostly of Pagan background, who have gathered to work the Golden Dawn System. Since most of the original order's material is published, and the world is very different from what it was at the start of the 20th century, we don't operate in secrecy or keep secrets save what is needed for confidentiality or security.

Our sources were written by Arabian occultists, such as al-Buni, Ibn Arabi, and many others, in the Middle Ages. These Arabic masters make heavy mention of Hebrew writing, Hermetic lore, and Babylonian and Chaldean teachings

In its training, the Rosy Cross leads the gross man by degrees from the purely physical and weak man, to the verity of the spiritual. It instructs man in the process of transmutation, the acquisition of health and strength, the out lasting of thoughts of weakness and age, so that he may, by his own efforts, transmute the base and inglorious into the pure and fine-the dross into the finest gold. This process gradually results in understanding the Illumination."
