In memory of Jenni Shell 29th January 1941 - 29th January 2017
In 1981 Jenni founded Maat - a Mystery and later Qabalah school - designed to inspire individuals to put into practise their life as personality, soul and spirit beyond any rigid perspective. Well over 6,000 people from all walks of life attended and had the chance to work closely with this powerful, down to earth and modest teacher.
Maat was named after the Egyptian Goddess of Truth and Justice. The school ran for 25 years and was the forerunner for The Order of the White Lion.
In November 2005, when the last of the groups finished their training, the doors of Maat closed, and The Order of the White Lion took its place. The Order of the White Lion was first launched in the Spring Equinox of 2002.
Today - on the anniversary of her passing - and to celebrate Jenni’s life’s work, we are excited to announce the relaunch of The Order of the White Lion website (O.W.L)
The new O.W.L website is now fully compatible with modern technology; responsive to iPads and tablets and a wide range of devices: http://www.orderofthewhitelion.com

How excited would you feel if there was something easily available that could help you change your life?
Something that could help you create your ideal life?
Something that could help you accomplish your goals?
Something that will lift you when you’re feeling down and disillusioned, and help you to understand why things may happen, and how to come to terms with, and adapt to, changes that occur in your everyday life?
Well, there is something that can do all of those things, and more, and it is called the Tree of Life.
Forget labels and put aside any preconceived thoughts on spirituality, religion etc. because the Tree of Life is too big to be pigeonholed, and too useful to be dismissed as something only of interest to followers of Qabalah, Kabbalah or Cabala.
The Tree of Life is a wealth of ancient knowledge that has been passed down through the ages. This knowledge is geared towards helping us to watch our life - to improve and expand it - and to be mindful of the fact that our choices and decisions have far-reaching implications that carry forward and influence future incarnations in a beneficial, and also challenging, way.
This information is for everyone.
It is not religious. It is more a Way of Life, and a guide to help us create a way of life that is in accordance with the true nature of who we really are; that reveals and highlights creative potential and inspires us to develop, and use it, to live the life that is Right for Us as individuals.
The Tree of Life is there to inspire humanity to create a world of imaginative, creative and fulfilled individuals. With each individual contributing in some way for the benefit of others. Everyone has a part to play. Everyone represents a piece of the great jigsaw of life.

When life is not flowing it is very tempting to compare our lives with other people's but it's not very productive. The Ancient Wisdom of Qabalah helps us to discover our own star and step out of the shadow of others. The name of the game is to follow our own star and not get caught up in the illusion that other’s peoples lives are somehow more interesting and exciting.
One of the challenges we face in this Game of Life is to be our own person, and not trip ourselves up by trying to be something we are not.
We have to follow our own dreams and not someone else’s. We each have our own star to follow, our own destiny and karmic conditions to fulfil.
So, we must follow the star of our own destiny - not try to emulate someone else’s. Radiate our own light and walk our own path.
The mystical teachings of Qabalah are a revelation insomuch they challenge us to look closely at our dreams and wake us up to the truth of our real hopes and wishes, thus guiding us out of the shadow of others and onto the path that is right for us.

The beauty of the Tree of Life reveals itself through its versatility. This magical and mystical tool truly offers something for everyone to enjoy, explore and learn from. It doesn’t align itself with any particular religion or faith and yet, at the same time, encompasses all aspects of spirituality and recognises the worth in all traditions and beliefs. The Tree of Life is more of a psychological tool and guide that helps to open our eyes and hearts to the bigger spiritual picture that we all play a part in. Everyone represents a piece of the jigsaw of life. Everyone has a role and function to perform this lifetime - its wheels within wheel, cogs within cogs. No function is greater or lesser than any other - they are all vital in helping humanity evolve, and understand, the essence of creation.
For more information on discovering how to live the life that is right for you take a look at our websites: The Order of the White Lion and Isis Qabalah Tuition.
The teachings of the practical Qabalah are mapped out on the Tree of Life. To aid understanding of this ancient, yet timeless, wisdom there is a complete series of Practical Qabalah workbooks available to help you on your journey to enlightenment and creative fulfilment.
As with all things the best place to start exploring the Tree of Life is at the beginning and the sephirah of the earth plane - Malkuth the Kingdom.

Did you know that all of us are born with special soul functions and mottos for life? And that each of us also has a Soul name that goes with us from life to life?
There is a vital force that directs the flow of creative energy down the path of the lightning flash - as shown on the Tree of Life - to manifest on earth. It can be looked on as both personal and cosmic and is therefore closely associated with our own individual destiny and how this plays a part in the evolutionary flow of humanity as a whole.
As we advance spiritually we have the opportunity to begin to recognise that our own unique qualities - although small by comparison - are still an intrinsic part of the overall plan.
More on how to recognise Soul Functions - and what they mean - can be found in the Tree of Life Soul Functions workbook.
The Tree of Life is a spiritual tool and guide. This ancient wisdom can be used in a practical way in everyday life.

What is the difference between Fate and Destiny? Qabalah teaches us that Destiny is what we are destined to do this lifetime whether we are consciously aware of it or not. It is what we have decided for ourselves before we are born, and the path we have chosen to walk this incarnation. Destiny could be described as our own personal star; our own personal sun around which our life revolves. It is the direction our soul is guiding us towards and for that to happen we must be a willing vehicle.
So, if Destiny is what we are here on earth to achieve .... what then, is Fate? And what happens if the personality is not a willing vehicle?
The Order of the White Lion is a teaching site dealing with all aspects of Spiritual and Physical life.
Learn more about Fate and Destiny with our beginners workbooks exploring the Tree of Life.

Qabalah teaches us that everything in the universe is a form of energy.
Angels, archangels and elemental beings are also energy. Over the aeons of time - to help identify and relate to them - man has built imagery around them.
The Tree of Life introduces us to the 4 Worlds of Existence, the Elemental Kingdoms, the Archangels and Angelic Hosts, and explains how we can connect with their energy.
On the Tree of Life the Archangel of Malkuth is Sandalphon.
Sandalphon is the Guardian of Humanity. In the Temple of Malkuth, Sandalphon will show us a drawing board upon which the design behind our existence and manifestation is laid out - the design of the Great Plan for Humanity.
More on the Temple of Malkuth can be found in the Malkuth workbook - available in Kindle, pdf and paperback format.
