About us – Western Mystery School

The Western Mystery School is a part of the Stichting Temple of Starlight, a Dutch foundation raised by Ina Custers-van Bergen. Our mission is to translate the Western Mystery Tradition and its life-changing mind altering techniques to the 21st century. To this end the Western Mystery School organises retreats, trainings, events and courses in Transpersonal Development to bridge the gap between modern therapeutic techniques such as NLP, Hypnotherapy and Family Constellations at one hand; and the powerful wisdom teachings of the Western Mystery Tradition at the other hand. Our training courses are based on the rich philosophy and magical praxis of Hermeticism and the Western Mystery Tradition.

The Western Mystery Tradition offers a rich, structured and cohesive system of Transpersonal Development. It has a colorful historical and an initiatory mouth-to-ear lineage: a lineage of initiates coming forth from from scientific, monastic and aristocratic circles.

The Western Mystery Tradition combines the Wisdom Teachings of antique temples from Greece, Egypt, Mesopotamia and merges it with Gnostic Christianity, Judaism, Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, Anthroposophy and Theosophy. The practical applications of Tarot, Astrology, Kabbala, High Magic and Alchemy are optimised with Hypnotherapy, NLP and systemic work. A synergy wherein Angelology and the mythology of Egypt, Babylon, Greece and Avalon play a role.

Our lineage consists of famous names: Samuel MacGregor Mathers, Theodore Moriarty, Dion Fortune, Bishop Robert King, Ernest W. Butler and Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki. A lineage which Ina Custers-van Bergen, head of the Hermetic Order Temple of Starlight and Director of Studies of the Western Mystery School, continues and ensures that the delicate beauty of the Western Mystery Tradition is translated in such a way that it becomes a practical tool. A training that that expands from personal healing to self-development and from there transcends into the magical levels of mysticism in a way it can be combined with modern life.

Transpersonal Magic Training is the powerful implementation and stable integration of the Sacred Sciences with modern therapeutic methods. Ancient and modern techniques, integrated into one overall system; the Magical Kabbala as the roadmap. Knowledge and wisdom surpassing theory, build a living inner world of beauty and meaning. Learn to unfold your creativity, use your inner senses, balance reflection and action. In this way Transpersonal Magic becomes a rich and undividable part of your professional and personal attitude and of your magical and mystical development.
