The Solar Lodge was among the most controversial of the many occult groups that sprung up in 1960’s America. This volume reveals the truth behind the rumors and innuendo surrounding Solar Lodge, which claimed to be the only legitimate lodge of the Ordo Templi Orientis operating in the world at that time. Frater Shiva was a high-ranking member of the group and sheds light on the inner workings of what began as a magickal order that eventually imploded as a result of the deterioration of its leader, Soror Capricornus. Also discussed is the centrality of LSD as sacrament in the ceremonies.
