Welcome to the Internet Presence of Swirling Star Lodge
It has been our pleasure to serve South Florida's Thelemic community since 1999.
We are an officially chartered body of Ordo Templi Orientis, the largest Thelemic organization in the world. Founded in 1999, Swirling Star has been operating consistently for over 15 years. We offer initiations, classes, and celebrations of the Gnostic Mass. We also celebrate ritual, observe Holy Days and participate in workshops and lectures. Please check our blog and Event Calendar for news and upcoming events.
If you are interested in joining the Order please contact the Swirling Star Lodge Secretary at email@example.com.
