Introducing ‘Spirit Builders’, an important new publication from +Palamas.
‘SPIRIT BUILDERS explores a radical expression of a little known branch of mystical Freemasonry for men and women, and provides a ritual monitor and guide for those desirous of practicing this avant-garde system.
Book One—In Free Communion, explores the movement of Free Illuminism, its central tenents, the spiritual transmissions it has inherited, the nature of the points-chauds empowerments & the rela-tionship of the Rites of Memphis+Misraim with these same empowerments.
Book Two—The Violet Lodge, provides a complete three-degree system for working bodies to fully integrate the points empowerments in a Lodge setting.
Book Three—Hauts Grades, includes a complete ritual monitor & guide for working all 97 Degrees of the Antient & Primitive Rite of Memphis+Misriam, according to the Ecclesiastical Revision of 1921-22, and as expounded upon by Free Illuminists in the Jean-Maine lineage. Book Three also functions as one of the expressions of the intuitional instrumentations of the INNER RETREAT as found in the Third Year Course of the Monastery of the Seven Rays.
Appendices include an Afterword by T Allen Greenfield, an Elemental Mass of the Misraim and multiple essays by Free Illuminists from around the globe who are experimenting with the points- chauds empowerments.’ ( Transmutation Publishing Website)
This is an extensive work to which I make a very small contribution in the form of a short essay on the activities of Incarnadine Temple, a body that was chartered in 2009 for the purposes of ongoing research into the subtle body, energy systems and alchemical, sex-magical practices within the 156 current. I have not written publicly until now about my affiliation and activities with congregational Illuminism. Its members are independent, experienced esoteric practitioners and researchers who share their knowledge and experiences from a wide diversity of backgrounds, with an emphasis upon ‘points chaud’ empowerments. The point chaud serve as a nexus for exploring the Memphis+ Misraim degree system and a variety of practices on energetic transmission within the M.M egregore.
A future post will cover the remit and activities of Incarnadine Temple.
