Chamber of Reflection

History and Origins of the Chamber of Reflection

The Chamber of Reflection is a small, darkened room used in Freemasonry and other fraternal orders as part of initiation rituals. The candidate is placed inside for a period of quiet contemplation and inner reflection prior to initiation. The chamber often contains symbolic objects and decorations designed to focus the initiate’s thoughts and prepare them for ritual rebirth. Usage of the chambers is very old in speculative freemasonry and dates back to at least the early 1700s in the Masonic traditions.
