Timothy Hogan

In podcast episode 91, we’re joined by author and lecturer Timothy Hogan. His titles include Past Master of East Denver Lodge #160 A.F.& A.M., Knight Templar, 32nd degree Scottish Rite Knight Commander of the Court of Honor, Past Sovereign Master of A.M.D. Council 425, member of the Royal Order of Scotland, member of S.R.I.C.F., S.I.I., and District Lecturer for the Grand Lodge of Colorado. Hogan is also the Grand Master of the Knights Templar (Ordre Souverain du Temple Initiatique) and runs CIRCES International. He has presented numerous lectures around the world on the subject of Freemasonry, and his experience and eloquence have distinguished him among Masonic and esoteric scholars. Hogan’s passion and wisdom are evident in his writing, which wonderfully conveys the symbolic richness and majesty of the Western Mystery Tradition.

The Alchemical Keys to Masonic Ritual by Timothy Hogan

We begin our conversation by discussing his book entitled The Alchemical Keys to Masonic Ritual, which has been described as, “the first book which establishes a direct link between the rituals of Freemasonry and the practice of both chemical and spiritual alchemy.” Hogan tells us about the foundational principles involved in Alchemy. He then provides some key examples of how Alchemical principles are contained within the symbolism of Freemasonry, as well as how these concepts have been ingeniously conveyed and preserved within the Craft.

The 32 Secret Paths of Solomon - A New Examination of the Qabbalah in Freemasonry by Timothy Hogan

Next, we explore the research and revelations from his book The 32 Secret Paths of Solomon: A New Examination of the Qabbalah in Freemasonry. Hogan explains how he arrived at an interpretation of the Tree of Life “that can be found within the symbolic degrees of Freemasonry.” We go into great depth discussing both of his books and their implications. Hogan’s work is scholarly, reasoned, and crucial for its insights. For Freemasons interested in esotericism, his books are required reading and I highly recommend all of Hogan’s work.

    The comment on the Golem made me think of Paul La Violette’s idea of Subquantum Kinetics. Making something out of nothing. -http://www.redicecreations.com/radio/2010/08aug/RIR-100801.php

    Dear W. Bro Hogan – looking for something else in my library and one of your books fell on me :) Took it as a sign to let you know about Adelaide Lodge #406 Esoteric Forum. http://a406.proboards.com/index.cgi

    Would appreciate it if you took a look and add something for us. We are proving popular with earnest seekers from the less esoteric orders.
