Esoterika Lodge No. 227, A. F. & A. M. of Oregon is one of the newest Lodges in Oregon. We were granted a Dispensation in May of 2007 and Constituted in July of 2008. At a time when many lodges are consolidating and closing we are thriving!

Esoterika Lodge is a lodge with a mission. The work of Esoterika Lodge is focused on:
(1) perfecting ritual and degree work, and

(2) facilitating esoteric and historical studies, research, and scholarship.
To these ends, we confer superlative degrees, and host quarterly meetings each featuring a scholarly presentation of original research on a relevant topic. We have been fortunate enough to play host to a series of distinguished speakers, but are equally proud that many of our members have given excellent presentations as well.

We are building a community of scholars and ritualists to exemplify these often neglected Masonic virtues. By so doing, we hope to generally strengthen, support, and encourage Masonry by highlighting and celebrating our glorious history and traditions in a manner as closely approximating historical accuracy as is permitted by our modern code.

Esoterika is a formal Lodge. Members of Esoterika (and any visiting bretheren) are expected to conduct themselves with the gravitas appropriate to members of the oldest and noblest fraternity in the world. At Lodge meetings, members of Esoterika No. 227 are expected to wear at minimum, a dark suit, and a white or black shirt. Visitors from other Lodges are requested to conform to this as well. Officers of Esoterika Lodge are requested to wear the official uniform of the lodge consisting of a black tuxedo tails, white or black shirt and black tie, with white gloves.

The Lodge is purged prior to the beginning of meetings so Masons from other Lodges and Jurisdictions should bring proof of active membership and be familiar with the necessary signs and tokens.
