On December 8th, 2007, the talisman was activated through the signing of the charter.
Ormus Lodge is a Philosophical and Research Lodge of the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraim. By philosophical, we mean esoteric philosophy as taught in the Western Mystery Traditions, Alchemy, Rosicrucianism, Speculative Freemasonry and various Hermetic and Gnostic Schools. By research we mean actual research, both academic and scientific in scope. For example, historical research, original papers and presentations, peer reviewed documentation of experiments, etc. By Lodge we mean a magickal organization, an interconnected node of men and women working together in unity.
Ormus Lodge is both traditionalist and futurist in scope, maintaining a genuine respect for the ancient teachings while simultaneously being exploratory and innovative. We view the light of the gnosis as a continual, dynamic stream, stemming back in antiquity and flowing ever forward throughout the aeons. Ormus Lodge is a laboratory of scientific illuminism and a vehicle of transmission for initiation. The degrees of Memphis-Misraim have unique expression through the Lodge. We are part of an authentic tradition whose lineage includes Gnostic and Apostolic succession, the Rite of Memphis-Misraim and hot points (points chauds) empowerments.
Ormus Lodge is an independent chartered body of the Rite Ancien et Primitif de Memphis-Misraim. It does not confer any status or privilege in any other organization, masonic or otherwise. Tau Dositheos was issued the charter through Bishop T Allen Greenfield.
Ormus Lodge does not discriminate based on gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or religious affiliation.
