1) According to stories, the Bohemian Club was founded in 1872 in San Francisco. Every year they hold a retreat in the Redwood Forest at Bohemian Grove. Only the most powerful Republican men are invited to attend. There, legend says, they get real weird in front of a giant owl statue. 2) Ordo Templi Orientis was founded in the early 20th century by an Austrian chemist. Its most known member is Aleister Crowley, the famed English occultist. Crowley revamped the Masonic group to focus on a religion he created called Thelema. Thelemites believe that our existence is a product of the relationship between the space-time continuum and the principle of life and wisdom. To become a member you must go through a series of rituals and initiations. 3) Named for the symbol of a rose on a cross, the Rosicrucians have one central belief: That all members of their order share the same secret wisdom. Their beliefs combine occultism with aspects of popular religion. They also have a Facebook page.
