Welcome to the Fraternity of the Hidden Light Australia
This site is dedicated to the Fraternitas L.V.X. Occulta (F.L.O.) in Australia. Here you can find information about the work of F.L.O. and about our current activities in Australia.
The Fraternitas L.V.X. Occulta, or Fraternity of the Hidden Light, is an Aquarian Age Mystery School of the Western Esoteric Tradition, organized for the following three-fold purpose:
(1) To act as a modern day repository of the Ancient Wisdom teachings of the Tarot, Qabalah, Alchemy, Astrology, and related Arcane Sciences;
(2) To train its members for unselfish service to humanity, by providing a seeding-ground for their growth and development through group and individual applications of the Wisdom teachings;
(3) To promulgate the Ancient Wisdom teachings in an effort to elevate the thought life of a humanity at large, and help herald the coming of a universal brotherhood on earth.
The Fraternity of the Hidden Light is an Esoteric Order in the Western Mystery Tradition, tracing direct lineage to the great English Order at the turn of the century, known as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Members of the Golden Dawn included the poet W. B. Yeats and many other notable figures.
Like the Golden Dawn, the Fraternity of the Hidden Light practices a system of spiritual disciplines best described as Hermetic Qabalah. Hermeticism is a combination of ideas based upon the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus. Hermes was the great legendary Egyptian "Master of Masters," credited as being the father of Hermetic Wisdom, the founder of Astrology, and the discover of Alchemy.
The Qabalah is a dynamic system of Judeo-Christian theosophy, mysticism and theurgy, founded upon ancient teachings. The Qabalah is based upon the tradition practiced by the ancient Essenes whose members included John the Baptist and Jesus.
