What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not an end."
Friedrich Nietzsche | Thus Spoke Zarathustra
The Spitzalodian and Dakmonian current was founded by Harry Martin in 1993 as a system of magickal training and personal development. Since then, it has evolved into a formal tradition of Black Magick. Today, as a result of the work from his direct students and initiates, the Temple of the Triple Flame has evolved into an organization based on the principles of western philosophical thought, personal ethics, Black Magick, and the practices of traditional and modern witchcraft and sorcery. Our work is both spiritual and practical in nature, seeking to enlighten and empower individuals through personal development and through service to the occult community.
Our teachings are based on the principle of Dharma as well as the Arabic principle of Din, meaning “way of life”. The Temple and its Orders operate exclusively from the perspective of the Left Hand Path; forsaking dogma and morality taking instead an ethical approach to the practice of the magickal arts and the Old Ways.
Humanity is divine by nature. As a result, the purpose of the Temple is twofold. First, on the individual level, the Temple seeks to awaken one's own divine nature and to promote Mastery of Self within its Seekers, Initiates, and Membership. Second, the Temple strives to promote the importance of community and the evolution of humanity to greater levels of consciousness, knowledge, and awaken its untapped potential. This is done through our inner workings and outreach to the community.
Knowledge and Mastery of Self are viewed as a continuous process. As such, the initial study of Spitzalodian and Dakmonian magick involves Apprenticeship through an esoteric initiatory system consisting of five levels of magickal proficiency. This is the cornerstone of the Spitzalodian and Dakmonian current and serves as the initial foundation for one’s practice. Upon completing the initial course of study, additional pathworking is strongly encouraged through an eclectic educational practice referred to as “Open Sorcery”. Open Sorcery consists of pathworking through any magickal system the Master Adept chooses. This approach differentiates our system from many others; which use a three-degree initiatory system and operate from only one perspective.
Success at the Temple is relative and directly correlates to one’s level of commitment to the process of Mastery of Self. Studying the Spitzalodian and Dakmonian current is not for everyone and very few are capable of accepting and completing the challenge that awaits them. For more information, please review the information about our Orders as well as the Frequently Asked Questions section. If after doing so you feel you hear “The Call” and are willing to make a commitment to studying with the Temple, contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
The Temple of the Triple Flame is the sole self-governing body of the Spitzalodian and Dakmonian magickal Tradition. Our mission is to provide religious and spiritual services, counseling, and training to both Initiates and Seekers alike within the Spitzalodian and Dakmonian Tradition and the Left Hand Path.
Our vision is to give occult practitioners the tools to not only master themselves but also the world around them. By providing a rigorous and extensive education in the magical arts, the Temple seeks to promote scholarship, community, and a love for lifelong learning and practice.
