Group Overview: 10-31-2015: As the Temple approaches the sacred days ahead, I wish to remind all students of the great responsibility they have for making great effort to realize their dreams and visions. The help of ancestors is available to all, and this time now at hand; is one of joy and reunion. At times, we know of many who are on their own paths and though we miss them, we do know this is the way of chaos magic. What fond memories.
We invite new students wishing to apply themselves with much will and effort to contact us. We always respond and will help those who are worthy.
10-1-2015 New students are being accepted into aspirant status at this time. Each student can learn magic at their own pace. You will be initiated into the Temple of Luna to start off. We are no longer offering one on one instruction. If you are interested in group; then when sufficient participation allows we shall go to group teaching.
9-20-2015: October coming up with an opening for a witch in training wanting to learn a powerful form of magic and sacramental art. Selection process involves challenging magically oriented tasks, so as to discover ones path and work with the intensity of the inner self. Authentic and connected.
7-2-2015 Here it is independence day; and many new students from all over the world. Locally, there is private instruction which helps you develop a strong foundation. TOL does not offer academy style training, instead all work is experiential and tailored to your needs. If you are wanting a new direction in your studies; then try Chaos Magick as we teach it. smiles!
6 18 2015. June starts off basic training boot camp for students followed by initiation. This a quick no bs path for true seekers of magical skill and the goddess. Priestess training is available when openings exist.
3-1-2015 March brings us full circle and now accepting new students. We work with beginners and advanced.
8-1-2014 August brings an opening for a dedicated seeker of the magical art of chaos magick. The Temple of Luna is a cosmic connected school of occult learning. Each student is a star and facilitate your goals and aspirations. We also strongly emphasize the sacredness of the body and its use to attain gnosis and magical result.
6-1-2014 The Temple has a great deal to offer those who have a strong interest in magical arts as it applies to spiritual development. The Temple operates as a connected mystery temple whose sole and only purpose is the illumination and freedom of each. Truly you are a star. Our selection process is demanding and is meant only for serious students, regardless of path of orientation. The initiation comes through great compassion given by those who have been released from the earthly worlds and swim in the ocean of life, as a star.
1-20-2014: Sorry no minors are ever admitted to our functions. Those interested in family friendly options please continue looking. We restrict membership to those over 20+
6/12/2013: We still offer basic magick classes. We have erotic and ectasis teachings for those bold enough to embrace.
The newest approach to magick will involve two streams. The return of the owl god or Atlantian mysteries; and the path of the stellar hosts. Both paths have equal pschic requirements and skills. Tne Temple of Luna has a special opportunity for those who are willing to the huge amount necessary to gain such skills and abilities. We heavily stress esctasis and all sensory methods of trance induction. As such we are closed to those with issues. People who have interest in tantra and sexual arts but have little magical training will be encouraged to learn the basics of magick first. Once one has a strong foundation; then a more problem or issue free travel through the dimensions and realms can be made. We are only interested in those who are self chosen; you know who you are and it is our function to anchor the mystery and provide a place for your workings.
5/26/2013 Learning the art of magick is a self chosen path. If someone really teaches you magick; they are teaching you how to think, observe, and make your own decisions not theirs.
2/8/2013 We are accepting new students who are dedicated to learning the art of magick and ceremony.
7/12/2012 From time to time we get request for teachings from people who do not have the time to follow our program or think entry into this coven is easy. First of all, all students should be able to spend at least 5 hours every two weeks for meetings and one on one teaching. There is no sex activity allowed during one on one teaching so if you are looking for that, please move on. If a student shows ability and potential, they are invited to group work; which is much more intense and productive. Frater Infinity will instruct all beginning students, to insure their foundation is strong. Keep in mind, we have protectors who will work magically to allow entrance for those who are sincere and compassionate.
7/4/2012 We are now accepting new students for one and one instruction; and then invitation to group workings. We are friendly and will teach you the secret arts of magick as related to Chaos Magick and other new kinds of magick.
4/1/2012 The International Headquarters of the TofL has created a regional temple in Fredericksburg, VA. We require one on one teachings to start. Also expect your life to shift, if not please do not contact.
We now have openings for those wanting to train as High Priest or High Priestess in Chaos Magick.
All initial training is one on one with a selected teacher.

We are open to many different views as long as there is no harm done, violation of law, violence, or compromise of human rights. We recognize the importance of the human factor and consider such work as personal and private. General membership will teach the basics. For those who want a temple experience; more intense programs are offered.
1/21/2012 We are happy to announce FREE witchcraft classes for those who have an interest in learning a powerful magical system which honors the male and female equally.
If you are the kind of student who wants to learn and yet innovate your own way of doing things; then this is the way to go.
Our High Priest is Carlos Melendez, a long time practitioner of magick, divination, and spiritual advisement. His tenure with major international spiritual groups coupled with strong practice make his classes not only lectures, but actual ritual praxis.

We only work with women and men over 20 years of age, due to legal requirements. If you are under 18, we do not have suitable programs for you, sorry.
We have many hundreds of members scattered throughout the internet. Now it is time to start a real life temple in Fredericksburg area. Are you interested? Contact us.
We have the following positions available:
We have a new Temple, the Temple of Luna Fredericksburg. We offer free ten week course on ceremony design and basic magick. Once completed you are may wish initiation into the temple.
A bit about the temple. There has been temple workings in rural
Virginia for many years. Due to the conditions and the fact, our beliefs may be misunderstood by more conventional religious bodies such as xianty faiths; we operate as a closed or confidential activity.
Personal freedom is one of the strongest majicks we have to offer and as such we honor those who are different than us; as we expect and demand the same of those who would be our friends or associates. In truth, we feel a low profile is necessary so as to allow us to work in confidentiality and privacy.
To be honest, we find all religions have their own unique beneficial beliefs and philosophy. Ours is oriented towards a type of worship which is purely creative and dependent upon the views of the aspirant at the time. All beliefs change through history and we do not have a permanent dogma.
What we do have to offer is one on one instruction and eventually group workings. As such, we are looking for people who are self- reliant, mature, and open hearted. Self-reliant to be capable of self governance, mature in the ways of life (not necessarily age dependent) , and open hearted to learn new things and study subjects foreign to our own.
This alchemical process of becoming involves initiation and regular testing of ability. There is however, no pass or fail; what we do know is that passionate and regular practice will upset the applecart of fixed belief.
One should not inquire if they are happy with their present condition and do not wish to change. You certainly do not want to contact if you are involved in study with someone else, and merely want to complete a assignment by checking out what we do.
In the first place, we are an initiatory org; and the temple represents a sacred place to us. The temple space is temporarily anchored where we set up altar; but the portal is permanent and has been created many years ago. One of the first things we want to teach is how to properly enter and exit the portal. Once you are conscious of such interactions, many options exists. Deeper initiation allows one to explore creative aspects of the Divine Goddess or creative forces.
The process of majism involves: the elemental, planetary, sol, constellation; and distant nebula. One scales these dimensions and eventually has the will power to determine much in life; formerly reactive.
Discipline and honor of other students are always important. There is no level of of superiority or control within ones spiritual journey. The temple is however a sacred but somewhat mundane anchor with certain rules. An initiate of ours, has the responsibility of teaching proper ethics and morality without creating a controlling situation.
Another big difference, is we will work with all students, except those who are aggressive and have not learned the harm caused by unfocused intention. We will not work with those on psychiatric drugs or egoic belief in domination of others.
The work is all about mastering the subjective field of self; meanwhile understanding the objective side of self without subjective mastery is very limiting.
Your participation in this work is conditional. We allow, you to select. You may leave us anytime for any reason. Each is a star unto themselves.
Respect of the human condition is important as we know, lack of respect with bodies, is a sure sign communication with other beings will be filled with disrespect. We do not own other intelligences, though they are formed to assist us, we do not own them beyond our intention they participate in our creation.
Ultimately we learn to be a law unto ourselves, not based on egotism but on the fullest responsibility for creative majism.
The Temple of Luna (Fredericksburg) invites you to inquire and to consider learning our teachings. Blessed be.
