The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the outer order of the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha et Omega® has over the years grown into the largest international Golden Dawn order across the world. This has not been without growing pains, however. The greatest obstacle we have faced has been the lack of a permanent home for the order due to my gypsy lifestyle as a tour director.
Well, that has just changed. I am pleased to announce that yesterday I bought Isis Temple and Retreat Center just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. Isis Temple at this time features a recently built 2,650 square foot temple area and parsonage, with plenty of space for a permanent home for the Vault of the Adepti.

Moreover, Isis Retreat Center is located on 2.5 acres of prime land, which gives us plenty of room to grow as our order continues to grow, as well a plenty of room to become self-sustaining with our own organic food. We also have our own well water and sceptic system, so with the eventual addition of a solar array, we will eventually become completely self-sustaining, off the grid.

In addition to the Golden Dawn, Isis Temple and Retreat Center will also become world headquarters for The Great Rite, l'Arte Eccelsa, and the Del Bosco Sacro di Nemi Italian Pagan Shamanic Tradition.
But wait. There's more!
Most of you are aware that we reformed the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in 1999, in order to heal the order from the injury caused by the profanation of Golden Dawn material by Aleister Crowley and Israel Regardie. (At least in the Alpha et Omega, we still understand the value of secrecy.)
I am pleased to announce that the Reformation of 1999 still continues today. In addition to recently reforming our AO rituals due to their senseless profanation by Nick Farrell, I just received word that in response to the recent magical attack on our order by Farrell, who profaned certain Alpha et Omega Second Order materials, the Secret Chiefs of the Third Order have decided to infuse the Second Order of the Alpha et Omega with major new replacement esoteric transmissions from Third Order archives.
There is not a lot that I can say about this due to oaths of secrecy, but I can reveal that these new transmissions include a replacement for the R.R. et A.C. system of elemental and astrological magick that was profaned by Crowley that we moved to our outer order in 1999. This completely traditional, yet hitherto unknown replacement system of astrological magic has never before been released to any Hermetic or Rosicrucian order. It includes completely unprofaned hierarchies of entities, methods of invocation and banishing, etc.
I am also permitted to say that the new Second Order material also includes a most ingenious and traditional means of generating the sigils of entities to replace the profaned method of drawing them from the Rose-Cross.
These are good days for members of the HOGD and the Rosicrucian Order of the Alpha et Omega!
