Inside a Magical Lodge by John Michael Greer is the first book of its kind ó a comprehensive guide to the design, organization and operation of a magical lodge. It was written by a practicing magician with years of experience in lodge settings. This traditional lodge system offers a set of ritual skills that have been tested and polished through centuries of practice, providing a tool-kit of proven approaches that can be put to work in almost any type of magical group. So if you are part of a lodge, or thinking of starting your own, this book is a must!
Inside a Magical Lodge reveals all the secrets of magical lodges without breaking any vows of secrecy. This is accomplished by not focusing on any particular system. Instead, it looks at the underlying practices and benefits common to all lodges. This makes the information appropriate to all systems.
In these pages you will find information on the layout of the lodge, what the different officers of the lodge do, how they move during ritual, and even how to set up your own lodge. Numerous diagrams help make the text clear and easy to follow.
On a spiritual level you will discover how to fill out the symbolism based on the spiritual tradition you want to follow, along with the importance and impact of initiation. Fifteen rituals are included, including ones for purification and invisibility.
Even if you're not part of a lodge system, this book will provide new insights on how magical groups work. Get this book today.
