The Commandery of Adocentyn is dedicated to the study and pursuit of the Mysteries of Knowledge and Regeneration. This Knowledge of the Self, as represented by the Fivefold House of Sacrifice, culminates in true Gnosis: Divine Knowledge through the knowledge of the Divine in Man. Those who strive to this Gnosis and who peradventure attain it experience the Regeneration. Their House becomes irradiated with the Light of the Eightfold Star – the endless interlace showing forth the eternal bond of Matter and Spirit – and they are reborn as Adepts, continuing the Great Work in a New Octave. The House is led by the current Grand Master of the Order, Derik Richards.

The House of Topaz is an initiatory vehicle centered upon the Hermetic Gnosis. The aspirant develops a foundation of magical workings within a spiritual and philosophical background in order to achieve clarity of vision and understanding what the Great Work is, how it is communicated to those who want to know and how it is accomplished. True to the Way of Hermes, the initiate, along with enhanced practices then begins harmonizing the inner/microcosm with the outer/Macrocosm through the high Art of Planetary Workings so that: “the powers within me chant in harmony with Thy will.” Eventually through more advanced transformative Rites the adept’s Path aims to culminate in the noetic vision and finally in the mystical union with the Divine (unio mystica). Our term for this is the Palingenesis, the Regeneration. The master of the House of Topaz has over 50 years of study and practice of the esoteric traditions of the world.
