The Co-Freemasonic Order of the
Blazing Star


What is Freemasonry?

Freemasonry is a worldwide fraternity founded on the principles of brotherhood, with no affiliation to any particular religion, sect or creed. It thus gives the opportunity for all of its members to meet on a common ground, exercising the utmost tolerance and understanding of all genuinely held beliefs. While it requires an acceptance of a Supreme Being or Principal (God), it leaves the individual free to interpret these archetypal ideas according to their own personal understanding and development. It offers an opportunity to uncover the truths it teaches symbolically.

what is co-freemasonry?

Co-freemasonry is freemasonry that admits women as members on an equal basis with men.

Why Co-Freemasonry?

While some members of Freemasonry are content to accept Masonic practice and ritual as a practical training in brotherly co-operation, oral teaching and charity there are some who feel the need to look for a deeper, more esoteric and spiritual meaning. The Co-Freemasonic Order of the Blazing Star is particularly well placed to offer these genuine seekers the opportunity to look for this spiritual meaning hidden in Freemasonry. For those prepared to undertake serious study and training, the insights and inner growth dedicated to the service of humanity are of incredible benefit. The Co-Freemasonic Order of the Blazing Star sees its main emphasis as cultivating the spiritual and esoteric aspects of freemasonry, and offers a true and valid initiatory system of training and development through the 33 degrees of ‘The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite’ for the benefit of humanity and the world. It currently operates the highly esoteric 'Comte de Saint-Germain Ritual' in the craft degrees.

What does the C.F.O.B.S. teach?

The Supreme Being, as the Great Architect Of The Universe manifested creation for many purposes, one of which is the discovery of the divine nature within ourselves and creation. To most of humanity these inner truths are lost, however they have always been discernable to those who search with intense aspiration. Knowledge of these inner truths has existed from the dawn of time, they have also been called the ancient wisdom which has been manifested throughout the ages in many forms. Many see the Freemasonic work as a reflection of the ancient mysteries of Egypt, Greece and Israel.

It also had a great influence on the renaissance. The Freemasonic ceremonies use symbols and allegory in a harmonised ritual form which encourages an intuitive understanding, initiatory spiritual training and they are a way of linking the two aspects of the ancient Hermetic adage ‘As above, so it is below’.

The C.F.O.B.S. offers a step by step process of raising spiritual consciousness through the pathway of the Ancient Mysteries.
