Esoterika Lodge №227 meets at

Milwaukie Masonic Lodge
10636 SE Main Street
Portland OR 97222

We have a peculiar 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 2nd Wednesday at 7:30pm 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, featuring a donation bar and an excellent smörgåsbord of cosmic creature cacophony. Prospective members and others in our community are encouraged to RSVP to join us for these activities.
