Initiation and 'Secret' Orders-Necessary, or just an old fad?

UPDATE!!!  We will also have a guest speaker at this meetup.  Tony Hornsby, who is a Golden Dawn initiate (as well as in several other western traditions), and the Author of "The Rough and Rugged Road: Personal Reflections on Initiation" will be doing part of the presentation at this Meetup. He will likely also have copies of his book on-hand, so come on down for what promises to be a great discussion!

 

This will be an open discussion based and facilitated Meetup. We will discuss the topics of Initiation, Magical Orders/Groups and Personal Spiritual Growth.

What is a true initiation, is it necessary or needed? What can it do for me?

What are Magical Orders, Covens and Groups? Are they necessary? Have these traditional orders outlived their usefulness?

Can I just be a Solitary worker in these traditions? What do I gain or lose in working alone?

Come prepared to share your own experiences and thoughts, and we will learn from one another!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
