ORDER OF THE T∴G∴D∴
The Order of the TGD is an open source Outer Order of the Thelemic Initiatory Current in service to A.A. All order documents are publicly available, and aspirants are invited to use them for self-initiation in the Great Work of Thelema. Sincere students who pursue the work of the order can expect support from mentors commensurate with their own diligence.
Everything the student requires to get started is available below. Students need only commit themselves to the work and begin working through the order materials. You are invited to begin your self-paced studentship by reading the order materials under the grade of Neophyte below and preparing to conduct the ceremony of self initiation of the grade of Neophyte.
Students interested in having their work verified by the order must keep and submit a magickal journal recording all work in each grade, including all daily practices. If you encounter any difficulties along the way, feel free to contact The Order.

On March 31, 2004 e.v., David Cherubim (Frater A.·.A.·.), the founder of the Thelemic Order of the Golden Dawn, resigned as a member and representative of the Order. David Cherubim no longer maintained nor was he responsible for the Thelemic Order of the Golden Dawn (Order of the T.·.G.·.D.·.), and he no longer conducted or participated in any T.·.G.·.D.·. activities. However, all of the documents that he wrote and published for the T.·.G.·.D.·. remain to be the main source of knowledge, inspiration and initiation for the Order of the T.·.G.·.D.·.. He donated all of his T.·.G.·.D.·. related writings and rituals to the Order. The Thelemic Order of the Golden Dawn (Order of the T.·.G.·.D.·.) was founded on the Vernal Equinox of 1990 e.v. by David Cherubim (Frater A.·.A.·.) and past associates in Los Angeles, CA, USA.
On December 21, 2017 David Cherubim left his earthly body behind and moved into the great unknown; this site is dedicated to his memory. Unto them from whose eyes the veil of life hath fallen may there be granted the accomplishment of their true Wills; whether they will absorption in the Infinite, or to be united with their chosen and preferred, or to be in contemplation, or to be at peace, or to achieve the labour and heroism of incarnation on this planet or another, or in any Star, or aught else, unto them may there be granted the accomplishment of their Wills.
The order acknowledges its indebtedness to H Frater A. (Brian Morrow) for the location, preservation, and curation of official TGD documents in the years between the passing of SH Frater A.A. and the publication of this website
