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. This Qabalistic path has been described as the Yoga of the West, as it has much in common with esoteric Eastern spiritual practices. B.O.T.A. members receive lessons in the mail in Tarot, Qabalah (Kabbalah), Spiritual Alchemy, Esoteric Astrology and related disciplines. The coursework is challenging, far-reaching and immensely practical for everyday life.
B.O.T.A. Study Group is a great introduction to Qabalah and esoteric Tarot. It's free and open to the public. Our Dallas group meets on the third Saturday of each month. This year we celebrated our 22nd birthday!
Most months we have a discussion on a topic from Tarot or Qabalah, followed by a guided Qabalistic meditation and lunch. But some months there are special events, such as our seasonal rituals exploring the esoteric symbolism of Christmas and Easter. See the Meetup event announcements below for details.
Newcomers are welcome to join in our discussions. No advance preparation is necessary; you need only bring your interest, imagination and inquiring mind. We hope to see you soon!
Group Ritual Work is also available to Dallas B.O.T.A. members. Sometimes described as prayer in motion, ritual work has been practiced throughout the ages by spiritual aspirants. Combined with the lesson material, it can be a powerful catalyst to personal growth. After completing the requisite initial coursework, members may request Initiation and thereafter participate in our healing ritual work of Pronaos.
