The Bohemian Grove 
The Bohemian Grove was created in 1872 where men worshipped an Owl statue.
As time wenton, the wealthy businessmen controlled the Grove (above and beyond the original middleclass artists in the group). At first, Grovers would camp at various places like the presentMuir Woods, Samuel P. Taylor State park, and a separate redwood grove near DuncansMills.
Regular July encampments similar to those held today began in 1899. The firstparcel of the grove was purchased from Melvin Cyrus Meeker who developed asuccessful logging operation in the area. Gradually over the next decades, members of theClub purchased land surrounding the original location to the perimeter of the basin inwhich it resides
Their motto is “Weaving spiders, come not here.“ These words existed fromShakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.“ That means that outside concerns and businessdeals are to be left outside.There is an interesting story of tale of Minerva and Arachne. Arachneis Greek for spider. The story revolves about a weaking contest between Minerva (who is calledthe goddess of arts, needle work, and weaving) against Arachne. Arachne losing the competitionand turns into a spider. This motto of “Weaving Spiders Come Not Here” might to alluded to themyth.The area where the Grove is at is located at 20601 Bohemian Avenue in Monte Rio,California. The ceremonies occur in mid-July each year. It hosts a three week encampment. Its
members aren’t just former U.S. Presidents business leaders, and bankers. There are someartists and musicians there as well.
The Camp at the Grove is riddled with imagery of death, sacrifice, skulls and Owls, as is theClub's Headquartersin San Francisco
Aninitiation fee of $25,000 (as of 2006) is required in addition to yearly membership dues.Elected members are allowed to prorate the initiation fee into equal annual payments untilthey reach the age of 45. Therefore, you have to be rich or have a lot of money to join thisclub. Guests come in by a screening process. Folks join by invitation. The mainencampment area has 160 acres of old growth redwood trees. Some of them are over1,000 years old and are higher than 300 feet in height.
The National Press Club was established in Washington, D.C. in 1908. Soon, itsmembership include news reporters, including 17 consecutive President of the UnitedStates. The National Press Club’s logo had and owl (an emblem of the Bohemian Grove), alantern, and the rays of sunlight.Some of the folks in the National Press Club control mostof the mainstream media today in America. One of the most powerful cliques of theBohemian Grove is called Mandalay filled with CFR members, SMOMs, Pilgrims, andcorporate cheiftans. Mandalay seems to be the camp of international relations. Those inMandalay include Samuel H. Armacost (from Bank of America), Ralph E. Bailey, George H.W. Bush, the late William J. Casey, Henry Kissinger, George P. Schultz, etc. Mandalay isthe top of the capstone of the Bohemian Grove in terms of political power. You can’t justwalk into the Mandalay location. The Syllabus of Errors in the late 1800's had theVatican to condemn the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, and other legitimatefreedoms in the world. William Randolph Hearst, Bay Area shipbuilder Arthur W. Moore,
writer Ambrose Bierce, writer Henry Georg,
and other famous Grovers existed in timespast. Other pre-eminent camps are:
-Hill Billies (which is made up of: Big Business/Banking/Politics/Universities/Media)-Cave Man (which is made up of: Think Tanks/Oil Companies/Banking/DefenseContractors/Universities/Media)-Stowaway (which is made up of: Rockefeller Family Members/OilCompanies/Banking/Think Tanks)-Uplifters (which is made up of: Corporate Executives/Big Business)-Owls Nest (which is made up of: U.S. Presidents/Military/Defense Contractors)-Hideaway (which is made up of: Foundations/Military/Defense Contractors)-Isle of Aves (which is made up of: Military/Defense Contractors)-Lost Angels (which is made up of: Banking/Defense Contractors/Media)-Silverado squatters (which is made up of: Big Business/Defense Contractors)-Sempervirens (which is made up of: Californian-based Corporations)-Hillside (which is made up of: Military — Joint Chiefs of Staff)-Idlewild (which is made up of: California-based Corporations)

What about just honoring the lives of those that have gone before us in a simple manner? Innovative products like cremation jewelry http://www.jewelrykeepsakes.com/Crema... lets loved ones worship the deceased in a discreet and secretive manner. No one knows what the interior holds and it's not at all morbid - in fact, very emotionally touching.
