Join us for an exploration of western esotericism and comparative religion through the lens of Freemasonry.

Get tickets!

We anticipate a broad selection of interesting topics that we hope will enable Freemasons and scholars to learn from each other.The volunteer group that has operated as “Esotericism in Freemasonry Conference” for the last five years is pleased to announce an expansion of our effort and a return to an in-person model for our sixth annual event.

“Esotericism in Freemasonry Conference 2022” (EFC2022) will be held over the weekend of October 1st and 2nd at Occidental Lodge 2006 NW Market Street, Seattle. A single track of presenters with original content will be offered through both Saturday and Sunday with some entertainment and social events being organized for Saturday evening.

The purpose of this conference is to encourage an approach to original research with regards to Freemasonry and Western Esotericism with an eye towards academic rigour when possible and a sympathetic ear from other practitioners. We hope to bridge the gap between seekers and academics to create an open environment for everybody.
