Founded by Dr. Paul Foster Case in the 1920s, Builders of the Adytum is a Mystery School and training order based on the Western Mystery tradition. The Qabalistic path is sometimes described as the "Yoga of the West," as it has much in common with esoteric Eastern spiritual practices.
B.O.T.A. members receive weekly lessons in Tarot, Qabalah, Alchemy and related disciplines. The coursework is challenging and far-reaching.
The Phoenix Study Group meets on the second Sunday of each month. Together, we investigate and discuss the Tarot and Holy Qabalah according to the principles of Builders Of The Adytum. No preparation on your part is required, beyond interest in the subject matter.
Some months there are special events, such as our seasonal ritual celebrating the Qabalistic symbolism of Christmas, the group healing celebration called Vibratory Attunement, or a Qabalistic Healing service. Everyone is welcome, and we hope you will join us!
Group Ritual Work is also available to Phoenix area B.O.T.A. members. Combined with the lesson material, this can be a powerful catalyst to personal development. After completing the requisite initial coursework, members may request to be initiated and to participate in our healing ritual work of Pronaos. Twice a year, near Equinox, new officers are installed in a ritual that is open to the public.
Can't make it to the group activities? B.O.T.A. lessons are designed to be studied on your own, in your spare time. To learn more about membership and the coursework, go to http://www.bota.org.
