Book Club: The Golden Thread- The Ageless Wisdom of the Western Mystery Traditions

There is still plenty of time to purchase the book, read the 150 pages, contemplate its information and meaning to Masonry, and then come join us on the Grana Patio on June 9th at 6:30!!

The next meeting of the Masonic Book Club will be:

  • When: Thursday, June 9th at 6:30pm
  • Where: Grana restaurant patio in downtown Chico

At this meeting, we will be discussing the book The Golden Thread: The Ageless Wisdom of the Western Mystery Traditions by Joscelyn Godwin. 

This book's discussion will be open to brothers of all Masonic degree levels.

From Amazon:

The Golden Thread traces the interconnectedness of esoteric wisdom in the Western world, from classical antiquity to contemporary Europe and America. Joscelyn Godwin lends personal perspective to an arrangement of text that is historical and wisdom that is timeless, creating a source of inspiration that calls us to action in our everyday spiritual practice. Every chapter, therefore, makes reference to some aspect of contemporary life and issues of immediate concern. Elegantly written and not without irony and humor, readers will appreciate the non-threatening tone of Godwin's writing, which is not meant to preach or convert but rather inform the public on an often baffling field. Educated readers who are curious about the esoteric and mystery traditions and interested in finding surprising, new approaches to subjects that veer away from the trends of current thought will be particularly drawn to this book.


You can obtain the book on Amazon in both paper and electronic format at a reasonable price for used copies, some as low as $8.99.  Also check out for great used deals as well.

Prior to the meeting, we will be sending out a list of questions to all attendees to encourage thought and foster discussion.

This is a convivial as well as an educational gathering so please feel free to imbibe in a favorite beverage at Grana with us, if you like.

Please RSVP so we can set aside chairs and tables on Grana's patio by sending an email to Bro. Steve Catterral,

We hope to see you there!
