Q. Can 15-year-olds join the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn?
A. (by Alex Sumner):
(A2A) No – for two reasons:
1. When you are accepted as a member, you are in effect making a contract to abide by the by-laws of the organisation and to stay regular with your subs. Whilst Minors can enter into contracts, they are voidable at will – so no organisation is going to risk a 15-year old flake out on them.
2. Just about every Golden Dawn temple I know either meets on licensed premises or adjourns to one after a hard day’s ritual, so they would not want someone who’s under-age to tag along with them and risk them being refused entry. 🙂
My advice is simply to keep studying the available Golden Dawn materials for now, such as The Golden Dawn or Self Initiation into the Golden Dawn, and if you are still interested in three years time, apply to join after your 18th birthday.
