our commitment

S.O.T.E.S. has no ethical or racial bias – it is, and will remain, our ambition to manifest a cultural organization open to individuals who embrace the sameness in many cultures and religions. We educate others in this universal sense of ethics through music, art, philosophy, dance, diverse belief systems and time-honored traditions.

The Mission

Our Mission

In order to forge a better understanding of the universal language of spirituality and to break down the barriers between religions, the mission of the Society of the Evening Star is to provide an educational facility, library, housing and outdoor green space for elder leaders of world faiths and minority religions to practice, to teach and to mentor students who are searching for spiritual answers. S.O.T.E.S. firmly believes that such teaching will assist in realizing the potential within us, will manifest a better life for all within the community and will help remove many of the obstacles that prevent the enjoyment of a fuller and richer life.

Questions & Answers

Dragon
april 6, 2019

On Saturday, 6th April S.O.T.E.S. will offer a rare opportunity to join Maxine Sanders in a Question and Answer style chat at the Marriott Hotel Providence.

In many respects, Maxine Sanders, ‘Witch Queen’ in the late Sixties and Seventies, needs no introduction, such is the influence both she and her late husband, Alex Sanders, aka ‘King of the Witches’ brought to the occult landscape at the time, the ripple effects of which continue today. It has been said that without their bravery and daring exposure of modern Witchcraft practises, many of today’s Initiates would not have discovered their chosen path nor enjoy the extent of wide-spread freedom of public expression that currently exists.

Perhaps surprisingly, Maxine is a private person who shuns the limelight and strictly limits her public appearances. On the occasions she accepts, she prefers to engage in Questions & Answers. Time, history, and over five decades of experience offer a cornucopia of humorous, inspiring, and at times, controversial conversation. There are no ‘off-limit’ questions and nor does she wish to know the questions beforehand, preferring the spontaneity of the moment.

Location, Time & Admission

This workshop is taking place April 6, 2019: 2:00 PM -- 4:00 PM at the Marriott Hotel Providence (1 Orms Street) . The admission cost is $20.
