As we agreed upon before the Summer holidays, we will continue our online program “The Argo’s Journey” the coming season. This adventure into the classical Mysteries starts with the famous words that were once written above the Temples in ancient Greece:
is the adagio that was written above many Temples for ages. But knowing yourself is only the start of the journey of becoming an Initiate of the Mysteries! It was written above the entrance of the Temple. After having passed this doorway into the Mysteries the so called Great Work begins…
It sounds so awesome! A heroic goal for a distant future. Many are attracted to the glamour side of the Mysteries: the incense, the crystals, the magical potions and spells: and not to forget the promised Powers. Many forget that the Great Work means … work!
Too often the Mysteries are used as an escape route to flee from life’s difficulties such as problems in relations, unbalanced mental states, work and money related problems etc. Many approach the Mysteries with the desire to get access to spells to fix their issues. They feel the need to take control and power without knowing how this works. The solution is not to add magic to an existing imbalance. The Great Work is a Call to Action:
Many people know the Hermetic Adagio “As Above, So Below”. But do you realize there is also a relation between the Truth Inside and the effects this Inner State has on your life? If your head is a mess, what is your life like? The Mysteries also say:
As Within So Without
Heal Thyself… but how to do this? And what is the role of the magical potions and spells to achieve this? This semester we will start working on the Divine Triangle of the Tree of Life. The answer is hidden in the Creation Myths, where the Mysteries of Healing are enclosed in the stories of the First Time. This is the mythological time when the Gods still lived on the Earth and everything was exactly as it should be.
We will focus on the Mysteries of Binah – the Mother of Miracles – and her consort Chokmah – Wisdom. Together they are the fundaments of the Divine Triangle of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life.
The structure and contents of these lessons will be similar to what we did last semester; we weekly meet online in a series of 20 video conferences. We will do meditation exercises, work with arts and crafts, explore theoretical backgrounds and dig into actual topics that are of interest to the Mysteries.
Everyone who has participated in the Temple Trainings or worked on the Solo Magical Training, or has a certain amount of training in the Mysteries is welcome to enroll for this program. All the exercises and homework of the digital Argo’s Journey are additional to any other program of our school.
People who are no members of the Temple group can subscribe for the program by email.
I am looking forward to meeting you online soon!
