Greek temple

Neophyte Section

Following the analogy of an ancient initiatory temple, you have spent three months as a Postulant, learning the most basic principles of the so-called “Mysteries.” You have been observed and found deserving of being permitted to continue to the next part of the temple, namely, the Atrium, or outer chamber to the main temple itself. Here you are given the title of Neophyte, and spend a further 12 months in study and exercise in preparation for entry to the main temple.

However, the Order is not a religion itself, just as mysticism is not the exclusive domain of any particular religious belief system.
