If you’ve landed here, it might be because you have an interest in the Order of the White Road
. The Order is a Christian Hermetic mystery school dedicated to preserving the ancient mysteries, adding to them where we can, and passing them on unadulterated.
When you hear the term Christian Hermetic, you might have some questions. For example, isn’t magic forbidden in the Bible
? We, however, take a holistic view of all that is
. Instead of holding God to be alone in His administration of the universe, the Order understands the presence and work of many angels and deities, a system commonly referred to as Henotheism
. This understanding is the result of our embrace of Hermeticism
, a philosophical tradition that seeks to understand the universe and its mechanics
, from the largest star to the smallest subatomic particles.
If learning and knowledge of this kind excites you, you can read more about what it’s like to study with us
and what it means to be a member
. Whenever you are ready, fill out the application on this page. We’ll respond with a link to schedule a one-on-one interview with the head of our chapter. The interview is not just about us interviewing you, it’s also about you interviewing us, so make sure to bring your questions!

How quickly can I become a member?

Why is there an application process?
The Order of the White Road is a non-profit, fraternal organization that dedicates itself to its mission in the world: to preserve the ancient mysteries and pass them on to the next generation. Many of these mysteries have been passed down through hundreds of generations from master to student; an unbroken chain of tradition.
We take that tradition seriously. The OWR does not teach students but teachers. Our application process ensures that each student who enters the Order does so when they are mentally and emotionally prepared to tackle the weighty, spiritual, and ethical questions that await them in instruction.
The questions on the application do something else besides: it ensures that we know where each individual student begins which better arms instructors and mentors to cater to the individual needs of every member.
The Order of the White Road (OWR) is a 501-C3 organization and operates on a non-profit basis. The OWR is, therefore, dependant upon its individual members to support its mission. Dues are a small monthly fee that varies depending on location and activity level that the student wishes to pursue within the OWR. These dues cover crucial items such as learning materials and necessary operating expenses.
It should be noted that neither our teachers, instructors, or mentors receive a salary for the work they perform for the OWR.
Dues for a strictly online student for the OWR are only $29.99/month but this price can change for members of individual regencies depending on that regency’s need.
Regencies are each ran by regency councils where each paying member has a vote on the price of their own due. Because it costs different amounts to live and provide activities in different areas, and because each regency differs in size, each regency sets its own membership price on top of the base $29.99.
This extra money goes to provide crucial support to individual regencies which allows its members to have in-person meetups as opposed to just online. These include special events, building expenses, and utilities.
