First and foremost, we would like to express our earnest and heartfelt gratitude to Swirling Star’s amazing mentor, as well as the officers and members for the relentless service (and in some instances, blood and tears) each of you has given throughout the years.
The launch of our website marked a very exciting turning point for us. On our site you can find information about upcoming events and functions, check the calendar for event information and contact us with any questions you may have. We will also be featuring Swirling Star’s bi-annual newsletter, The Chariot, on this site. Members are encouraged to share their experiences in Magick by contributing to The Chariot.
Founded in 1999, Swirling Star has been operating consistently for more than a decade. We meet regularly to observe the Gnostic Mass, perform initiations, celebrate ritual, observe Holy Days and participate in workshops, lectures and classes. Please check our blog and Event Calendar to stay abreast of what is going on at Swirling Star Lodge.
If you are interested in joining the Order please contact the Swirling Star Lodge Secretary at email@example.com.
