Builders of the Adytum (BOTA) Mystery school founded by PAUL FOSTER CASE, an American member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and an authority on the TAROT and the Kabbalah. The Builders of the Adytum (BOTA) is based in Los Angeles. BOTA has an outer school and an inner school.

They adhere to seven values:

The kabbalah and the Tarot are the foundation of BOTA’s ceremonial magic. Students pursue transformation of the personality, which enables them to make desired changes in their physical environment.
