"The Universalism of Memphis+Misraim" by Tau Blaise
Of all the Masonic rites, the 18th century Rites of Memphis and Misraim, based on the Egyptian Masonry of the martyr, Count Alessandro Cagliostro, are the most mystical and the most magical. Among the 100° are some degrees dedicated to ancient Egyptian workings as well as those inspired by a plethora of spiritual traditions including Roman, Greek, Hebrew, Templar, Rosicrucian, Martinist, Druidic, Norse, Hindu and Buddhist traditions, all moving towards the eventual goal of union with the Great Architect of the Universe. This alone would be useful enough for one who seeks a unifying system for all of the most important mystical paths, however our particular branch of Free Illuminist Memphis-Misraim has a particularly interesting history, having evolved in Haiti.
We are also particularly grateful to Tau Allen Greenfield and Tau Palamas who have done so much to make this particular form of the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis+Misraim known and accessible throughout the world and very grateful also to our brothers and sisters in Serbia, particularly Tau Qadosh, Tau Nuctemeron & Suor Naunet who have so generously shared with us and initiated us into this beautiful and potent magical order. We now have working lodges in both Serbia and Spain, where individuals may apply for initiation, but it should also be said that unlike most other masonic systems, the APRM+M is particularly suited for solitary and small group workings, which for many of us is a great advantage.
"When man is no longer a slave, we must appeal to his heart and intellect, if we would bring about the reign of peace, harmony and science." (from APRM+M ritual)
