The Temple

We are first and foremost a working lodge. Our Emphasis is on doing magick- and by that we mean good old fashioned wizardry: summoning spirits to visible appearance in the Dark Mirror and bringing down Gods, Goddesses and Angels to illuminate our crystal orb so that we can communicate with them. We use powerfull hypnotic and yoga techniques that we have developed and perfected in over a quarter century of practice. The O.T.A. is the oldest continually practicing ritual lodge in the U.S. We are the recognized leaders in the art of evocation (conjuration to visible appearance in the dark mirror) and our Pathworking System combines the best aspects of Eastern technique with Western symbolism.

Classes are offered on these unique techniques, as well as on the history of the origin of our Hermetic Tradition, at our Rivendell Lodge in Silverado CA.
