About The Estate
REGARDING THE ESTATE & WINSTONIAN
What is The Satanic Estate?
The Satanic Estate is a number of online properties designed to feel like buildings. One such building is The Satanic Temple Virtual Headquarters (VHQ) is an online multi room events space with live and pre recorded events in a map. The Virtual Headquarters building is designed to feel like a Victorian mansion, the illuminati labyrinth that never was. It’s unlike anything else that exists and was built by Satan-adjacent friends of Lucien named Morgane Ciot, Andrew Hall and other wonderful folks. It is owned and operated by Winstonian Enterprises with religious devotion to The Satanic Temple.
What is Winstonian Enterprises?
Winstonian Enterprises LTD is a small company affiliated with The Satanic Temple which operates The Satanic Estate and its properties including The Satanic Temple Virtual Headquarters.
Who is Winston?
Winston is an immaculate creature of sophistication to be envied. Winston is The Estate Director Ada King's beloved firstborn son, a 2 year old miniature lop rabbit of taupe and white fur. He enjoys ear massages, cardboard and hay construction projects and reclining in tunnels with his wife, Winona. If you would like to see a photograph of Winston, do request one. Ada would like nothing more.
Developed out of a need to support TST Headquarters in Salem during quarantine, The Satanic Estate has become a home for Satanists internationally to meet, laugh, and enjoy one another’s company. By hosting live lectures, art, music, performance and panels all relating to Satanic actions and general topics, The Satanic Estate is helping TST to connect Satanic communities with TST’s mission.
The Caretakers of The Satanic Estate’s primary objective is fundraising for The Satanic Temple to support the works that we feel religiously compelled to support. As Satanists, creating, maintaining and participating in The Satanic Estate is our means of practicing our religion. Now that we’ve had the opportunity over three successful holidays to explore the potential of The Satanic Estate we have a much better idea of the project’s overall potential and a clearer vision of how we see the space developing to both facilitate existing TST projects and operations. We have also garnered additional insights into how to best utilize the platform to facilitate community engagement.
The Satanic Estate has proven itself to be a viable opportunity to expand TSTs reach into the live online events and infotainment space by complementing existing new media outreach platforms and providing an innovative and creative space for new content and talent development.
Facilitating the Satanic Creative Community
The Satanic Estate is an exciting online space for creators to broaden their audience, perform their standard work and experiment with new content while generating revenue. The Estate supports fledgling projects just as much as well established ones.
Connection to TST Initiatives
The Estate works with TST endeavors, strengthening and leveraging each in the process. Congregations and Committees have a platform at the Estate to convey updates on their work as well as host events. We will continue our close partnership with TSTTV. Live events at The Satanic Estate are recorded and shipped to TSTTV for archival, increasing their library of content. We also cross promote on social and collaborate on event scheduling to best advantage one another. We also work closely with the TST App to provide updates to their Media section and receive Live Event Alerts to the App’s audience, reinforcing reciprocal value.
An Online Church Community Center
The Satanic Estate is our online church community center, operating on our religious principles to spark connection and facilitate creativity. Member groups (chapters, congregations, affiliated and unaffiliated projects, interest groups, and performers inside and outside the community) can perform their work in a safe, supportive, and creative environment.
Our online religious community center catalyzes Satanic education, creativity and community during our unholiest holidays and other special TST events. Above all, The Satanic Estate seeks to book live events to further the mission of The Satanic Temple in encouraging benevolence and empathy, rejecting tyrannical authority, advocating practical common sense, opposing injustice, and undertaking noble pursuits.
The Satanic Estate provides a home for Satanists and the Satan-Adjacent internationally.
There are Seven Fundamental Tenets
- One should strive to act with compassion and empathy toward all creatures in accordance with reason.
- The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.
- One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
- The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo one's own.
- Beliefs should conform to one's best scientific understanding of the world. One should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit one's beliefs.
- People are fallible. If one makes a mistake, one should do one's best to rectify it and resolve any harm that might have been caused.
- Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.
