Freemasonry (Masonry) is the world's largest secular, fraternal and charitable organization. It teaches moral lessons and self-knowledge through participation in a progression of allegorical two-part plays.
Freemasonry is a male fraternity dedicated to the spiritual development of the initiate into a broader sense of the self. Masonry conveys this message through a series of progressive degrees initiating the candidate into a deeper level of membership. Ultimately, the raised Master Mason is given the metaphorical tools to further work on and develop their Masonic intuition.
