Edwin_Austin_Abbey_01The Friary is an Initiatory meta-system and Outer Gnostic & Magical Order in the Western Esoteric Tradition, dedicated to assisting its members in realizing and advancing with and in the Sacred Flame.

The Sacred Flame is that which the ancient Gnostics termed the “Divine Spark,” the equally venerable Hermeticists, the “Good Daemon,” and the 19th and 20th century Rosicrucians, the “Holy Guardian Angel.” It is that which is within all of us, uniting us to each other, and to the “Divine” itself.

This website comprises the most comprehensive material concerning the the Friary currently available to the public.

The Friary also sponsors a mailing list, which is open both to members and non-members for the purpose of discussing the philosophy and practices of the Friary.
