Welcome to the website of
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.
We invite you to:
- Read the Manifesto of the Open Source Order of the Golden Dawn, which outlines our goals and philosophy.
- Read the Constitution of the Open Source Order of the Golden Dawn.
- Check out the Frequently Asked Questions to learn more about us.
- All of our Order’s officers are elected by democratic process, as set forth in our Constitution, and our operational Regulations are published.
- Learn about our spiritual development process in On the General Guidance and Purification of the Soul, v2.0.
- Postulants to the Open Source Order of the Golden Dawn have a right to ask where we stand On Lineage.
- Study our Rituals. As we redact them into suitable forms we’ll be posting them on this site. We invite you to put them to your own use.
- Visit our on-line Library, where you will find the results of our collection process and our own research and practice. If you have writings that may be suitable to post here, let us know. Through open discussion the community of practice grows.
- Work with us or at least let us know you are out there. We welcome new members into the OSOGD, if you live near one of our Lodges. Please check the Lodges page or contact our Cancellarius for information on current Lodge locations. Also, we invite working groups to affiliate with our Order and thus strengthen the magickal current.
In the sense of making it more prevalent, our primary goal is to normalize Adeptship. Would you like to help?
