A New Lodge for the British Federation in 2018God Khepri Scarab Symbol lk906

The re-kindling of Le Droit Humain Masonic light taking place in Chipping Sodbury

We have been trying to get a lodge going in the South West for approximately five years. One initiative was the formation of the triangle Y Ddraig - the Dragon – in Cardiff some years ago, which faltered.

Some years ago, there was a British Federation lodge in Chipping Sodbury, a few miles outside Bristol, just north of the M4, which closed, but a former member was still keen to rejoin us. So the decision was taken to transfer Y Ddraig Triangle to Chipping Sodbury. On 21 October the former LDH member then re-joined, and three other Freemasons from another Obedience were regularised. At the same meeting, two new members were initiated, so that the Triangle now has nine members including three from the Y Ddraig Triangle.

The members have now agreed that they will be calling this Lodge ‘Rising Sun’, which was the name of the Droit Humain lodge which met there in the past and Triangle Y Ddraig will then cease. The lodge will be resuscitated in 2018 and will work the Lauderdale ritual. It remains to establish a motto, but the members share a common goal in wanting a spiritual, esoteric focus, to work in harmony and with joy.

They are obviously very keen to encourage visitors and are now actively looking for more members who want to work in the South West.

Freemasonry The Esoteric traditionFreemasonry - The Esoteric Tradition

It's now only increasingly rare individuals who behold something of a deeper nature in our Masonic ritual and teachings and are often considered as somewhat eccentric or individuals or 'fantasizers'; to be charitably tolerated as long as they do not overstep the mark with their fantastical interpretations.

This volume is devoted to those members of society who maintain that Freemasonry should be interpreted, experienced and lived as an authentic Initiatic School, as was doubtless intended by the creators of its complex ritual forms, brimming with symbols, allegories and hidden meanings.

From a metahistorical point of view, the true 'figure' of the Freemason will be portrayed as a sort of 'Archetype of Enlightenment',which is clearly recognisable and presented in the western tradition throughout history. From the Epoptes of the Eleusinian Mysteries, to the Hermetic of the first centuries B.C.; from the Magician and the Neoplatonist of the Renaissance to the Rosicrucian; from the Alchemist to the Freemason, the same goal of, an individual featuring a series of common characteristics and, in particular, a similar 'vision of the world', is manifested cyclically in specific historical moments.

First impressions of a new member

What makes the British Federation such a special and unique Masonic Order? As a recently affiliated member perhaps I can humbly offer an answer to this question being as I am new to the order and, in theory, totally unbiased. Maybe not totally unbiased since I do have a point of reference to which I can compare Le Droit Humain: my previous Masonic reincarnation. Read More
