What we’re about

In Los Angeles, at the Temple of Tarot and Holy Qabalah, there are numerous B.O.T.A. group activities open to the public.

Please refer to the calendar for a complete listing of events and times.

Study Group: Together, we explore and discuss the Tarot and Holy Qabalah according to the principles of B.O.T.A. Study Group is followed by an opportunity to participate in a guided Qabalistic meditation.

Sunday Qabalistic Healing Service: This public, weekly esoteric service employs Qabalistic chanting and an insightful talk given by a B.O.T.A. minister or speaker.

Special Events: There are occasional special meditations or rituals, such as our seasonal rituals celebrating the Qabalistic symbolism of Christmas and Easter, and the group healing meditation called Vibratory Attunement.

No preparation beyond interest in the subject matter is needed to participate in Study Group, Sunday Service, or special events. Simply bring your interest, imagination, and inquiring mind.

Study Group, Sunday Service, and special events are all free of charge, although donations are always greatly appreciated.

Group Ritual Work is also available to Los Angeles 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 for personal growth. After completing the requisite initial coursework, members may request Initiation and thereafter participate in our healing ritual work of Pronaos.


Founded by Dr. Paul Foster Case in 1922, 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 other related disciplines. The coursework is challenging, far-reaching, and immensely practical for everyday life. B.O.T.A. lessons are designed to be studied on your own, in your spare time. To learn more about B.O.T.A. membership and coursework, please visit

B.O.T.A. is a non-profit organization.
