What We Expect from Members
Esoterika Lodge is committed to actually living the principles of classical Freemasonry. To achieve this we commit to investigating the principles themselves, their origins, how history has affected the transmission of these principles, and what we must do each day to live them here, and now. We value knowledge, intention, action silence and circumspection.
We study the esoteric foundations of the craft. We learn and perform exemplary ritual, and investigate exactly what the ritual was designed to teach. We do not accept dogma but rather accept knowledge arrived at through experience. We define brotherhood as a personal active commitment to each other and expect our members live this each day. We value and embrace open search for truth. We reject tyranny, political correctness, or social injustice. We practice charity directly and personally. We do not bend to the vicissitudes of life. We do not shirk from duty or the imperatives of honor.
Esoterika Lodge accepts men who wish to walk with us in the active pursuit of this code.
Esoterika Vision Statement
Esoterika is a Lodge of Master Masons which openly works to advance the tenets of our Craft. We have made it a priority to promote and cultivate in our membership a greater level of interest, involvement, and participation in the concordant and appendant Rites of Freemasonry. Those who have gathered to form Esoterika Lodge have made a dedicated effort to travel within the fraternity, and further their Masonic education and experience.
Esoterika Lodge is an environment, a vehicle, a habitat if you will, designed for the purpose of generating excellent Masons. Masons who from the very beginning of their entrance into the Lodge, are impressed upon to take their chosen and accepted journey into the society and culture of Freemasonry, very seriously.
Esoterika Mission Statement
The purpose of Esoterika Lodge is to provide our candidates and initiates with an introduction to the beauty and mysteries of Freemasonry. This Masonic responsibility is met in a manner consistent with inculcating the greatest understanding, respect for, and appreciation of, their acceptance into a Lodge of Master Masons.
Esoterika Lodge seeks to cultivate, nurture, and produce motivated Master Masons who are exposed to a Masonic education that emphasizes participation in Lodge work, Officer Development and excellence in the performance of Masonic ritual.
Freemasonry’s Mission Statement
The Mission of Freemasonry is to promote a way of life that binds like-minded men in a worldwide brotherhood that transcends all religious, ethnic, cultural, social and educational differences; by teaching the great principle of Brotherly Love, relief and truth; and, by the outward expression of these through its fellowship, its compassion and its concern, to find ways in which to serve God, family, country neighbor and self.
