Esoterika Lodge №227 meets at

Portland Scottish Rite Center
709 SW 15th Avenue
Portland OR 97212

We have an unusual calendar for our Stated meetings.

In the months of the Solstices and Equinoxes (March, June, September, and December) we meet on the third Saturday of the month. We meet at 5:00pm for light refreshments and a scholarly presentation open to the public. The presentations are open to all men and women of good character. The suggested minimum donation for these events is $10 per person. If you are interested in attending or presenting, please contact us.

On the remaining months we meet on the third Wednesday at 7:00pm sharp. We are often dark in July and August. Each meeting features a short educational lecture along with discussion on Masonic philosophy.

After our meetings, we enjoy libations and fellowship in the the Portland Scottish Rite Center game room and lounge, featuring a donation bar and excellent antique pool tables. Prospective members and others in our community are encouraged to RSVP to join us for these activities.
