About Us

GWU is a North-American Freemasonic Obedience, with Lodges in the USA and Canada, practicing traditional liberal Freemasonry for men and women from all origins who share the common values of:


  • Mutual Tolerance;
  • Respect of self and others;
  • Absolute liberty of conscience.


GWU members are committed to a quest for spiritual progress—the "Know Thyself" of the philosopher Socrates—while working towards the progress of humanity.

GWU is member of the international liberal freemasonic organization CLIPSAS, which assembles together adogmatic Lodges from all continents.
