LIGHT OF THE OGDOADIC TRADITION
The Ordo Aurum Solis is an initiatic Order reactivated under this name in England in 1897 by George Stanton and Charles Kingold.
This Egypto-Hellenic Tradition is defined by what is called the "Gold Chain" (of the Masters). This lineage is rooted in Hermetism, which is a tradition associating Theurgic practices with a rational approach to the inner mysteries of the life. The tradition first describes the high origins of the human soul and how it descended into physicality and what that means; secondly, it reveals the path by which the soul may again return to the Eternal and Supreme and what that involves.
