The song bring out the clowns starts to ring in my head when ever I start to think about the Shrine in a large way. Not out of any misanthropic meanness but because of their excellent work and commitment to the happiness and well being of so many children. . Say the name of the Shrine and instantly the image of charity, children's hospitals, and red fez's comes to mind, but behind those iconic images is an organizational powerhouse that, some suggest, drives the future of the Masonic...
In the wake of the most turbulent period of American history, the story of the intersection of Freemasonry and the Civil War have been many and profound - fact and fiction have become impossibly merged until now.

One of its earlier for-bearers was more of a positive turn in the Return of the King, and so many years later, Moore and his work From Hell has...

What makes a lodge successful? Is it the energy behind the lodge, the people that create it? And, does that energy come at a cost? Is there a social capitol that is bartered in an invisible exchange that at times reflects a huge value where at others it challenges its very existence. One such lodge happens to be a nexus for this very question, and has had a year to barter and trade on its own social capitol building a reputation amongst its community and amongst its peers. And this development...

Few places give you consistent discourse on the occult and the western mystery tradition. And even fewer present the thought leaders within that field today. Masonic circles aside, few are the sources to find this type of conversation, and even fewer that produce it with the passion that Greg Kaminsky does. Greg is the spirit, production, and host of the Occult of Personality podcast which has an ever increasing inventory of programs centered squarely on the idea of the occult and how it...
