Braden Lodge ritual It is said by some that Freemasonry, the oldest fraternity on Earth, is older yet, and derived from the Mystery Schools of ancient Greco-Roman world. We’re not sure about that, but it makes for an interesting debate. There are many hidden mysteries in life, though. How should one act? Why is this important? And most importantly, when one figures out how they should act, how do they put that into practice?

At Braden Lodge we explore these mysteries and questions through ritual. How we open a meeting, how we close a meeting, the way we confer degrees, and lectures passed down, verbally, through the generations–these things are how we remember and how we explore these mysteries among brothers, yet on a very personal level.

We do our own work.

We do it seriously.

We do it together.
