The Phoenix B.O.T.A. group was established in 1994. Meetings are held on the second Sunday of each month at the Phoenix Masonic Temple in downtown Phoenix.

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.

Special Events: There are occasional special meditations or rituals, such as our seasonal Solstice/Christmas Meditation and the group healing meditation called Vibratory Attunement. These events will take the place of the Study Group meetings for those months.

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

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

**********************************************************************************************************************

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 www.bota.org.

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