Temple of the Silver Star

The Temple of the Silver Star is the initiatory Order within the International College of Thelema (formerly the College of Thelema of Northern California.) We offer ceremonial initiation, healing work, and a complete system of training in the Thelemic “mystery traditions”, which encompass diverse wisdom teachings of the East and West. Our degree system is based on the Qabalistic Tree of Life and the cipher formulae of the Golden Dawn.

Our entire curriculum is constructed to be in conformity with the Law of Thelema, and our central aim is to guide each aspirant toward the realization of their purpose in life, or True Will. In order to empower our members to discover and carry out their True Will, we teach Qabalah, Tarot, ceremonial magick, meditation, Astrology, and much more. Our initiates meet 1-2 times per month for group ceremonial and healing work, classes, and other instruction. We also regularly offer classes and rituals which are open to the public. Please email us if you would like to be placed on our email list for announcements of public events.  

Please see the Frequently Asked Questions page for many more details about the work of our Order.

The headquarters of the Temple of the Silver Star, located in Sacramento, California, has its home in the beautiful Soror Meral Building and Gardens, erected in 2004 as a dedicated Thelemic temple and classroom space.  While our headquarters is in California, we have active working groups across North America and the United Kingdom. Please see our Contacts page for more information about training options in your home area.

Initiation is by application and interview. If you are interested in learning more, we invite you to download an application and submit it to your closest local body, or to email us with questions. Active participation in a local group is the best way to maximize the benefits of our system. However, we do offer “At-Large” memberships for those living at some distance from one of our local bodies. Please note that all initiations are performed in person, at a duly warranted local body.
