I have discovered a local Magical Fraternity called the Invisible House Society.
The Invisible House Society is a Thelemic organization founded with the primary objective of initiating and training students in Hermetics. The system of instruction includes the many branches of Magick and Mysticism and follows the course curriculum based on the grade structure of the A∴A∴ (Argon Astrum).
I have been engaged in email correspondence with the founder for a while now (approximately a year, I have known of this group for a long time) and I am requesting membership, entering in the grade of Neophyte.
To enter as a Neophyte would be quite the honour. As in this organization, it is typically the case that one begins as a “Probationer.”
[Quote=Probationer Grade: Purpose & Method]
Objectives: To begin studying the general history and the different systems of Magick and Mysticism, for the purpose of establishing within themselves their suitability for initiation into the next grade. The Probationer accomplishes the tasks of their grade in preparation for the grade test.[/quote]
I have informed the founder as to all my circumstances, as well as my complete devotion to spirituality & attainment of magical knowledge. Entering as a Neophyte is the most logical and appropriate starting point for me at my current level. The Probationer grade would be very redundant, as the Neophyte grade is exactly what my current level of attainment would be in that system, and as such is the most logical starting point!
He said he will confer with the other Adepts in the next meeting of the Vault of Adepts.
