Checking Out Co-Masonry

As a result of reading John Michael Greer's Inside a Magical Lodge a few months ago, I started checking out various fraternal orders, leading to my discovery of Co-Masonry, which is Masonry for both women and men. Today I visited the local chapter and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

I was not, of course, admitted to the actual lodge meeting/ritual. This group has a monthly study meeting prior to the formal lodge meeting, which constitutes a social time as well as time to share the fruits of individual studies or do group exploration of a topic.

This afternoon's subject was Kabbalah, which I have been studying for the past several years as part of my priestess training. I found it ironic that the very topic which I had been told was inappropriate for me to use as a presentation at another group I had been looking forward to being part of was the one being shared in this group today.

What was presented bore little to no resemblance to Kabbalah as I've been studying it, but I enjoyed the conversation and discussion with the members. There was a strong focus on personal growth, especially through spiritual focus, and a definite bias toward self-awareness and personal responsibility. It was a relatively small group, but that's always best for me. I felt like I would probably enjoy extended conversations with each person there.

The rule for this Lodge is that a potential member needs to attend three study groups before asking to join, which seems wise to me. I'm looking forward to returning next month.
