The Secret Wisdom Teachings of the West

A lot of people think that Western Culture doesn’t know a shamanic tradition or an esoteric Wisdom Teaching. That is why they turn to exotic traditions such as Yoga or Mindfulness. They are wrong, the Western Esoteric Tradition is hidden in plain sight:

In myths and legends, in children’s rhymes and traditional folk feasts such as the erecting of the May pole or Carnival there is an underlying system of wisdom teachings taking us back to the oldest cultures with written and unwritten sources. Hidden in ordinary fairytales, in classical books, operas, sculptures and paintings is a language of symbols that takes us right into a very ancient form of nature spiritualism. You find the Western Esoteric Tradition in the great Greek myths, in Grimm’s fairy tales, in operas like Mozart’s Magical Flute. Even modern authors get inspired, like Tolkien when he wrote the Lord of the Rings and JK Rowling while writing the Harry Potter novels.

The key to these wisdom teachings is called Hermeticism. Do you know the expression that something is hermetically closed? Hermetic Keys are symbolic maps that enable you to unravel the hidden teaching. In Western Esoterics, riddles, symbols and imagination form important methods to get access to the higher spiritual realms, when you combine them with meditation, arts and crafts, and mystery play. The key to open these doors is the Hermetic Tree of Life.

Eternity’s magical Spinning Wheel

We have gone through interesting times last year: we have all been going through a roller-coaster, because of the Corona pandemic. It taught us a lot about ourselves and about nature. It made us even more aware that we need to change our behavior towards the planet and the life on it. One of the lessons we learned is that it is not necessary to travel physically to far destinations, to learn advanced stuff. A lot can be done online and we discovered that a lot of magical teachings can be learned very effective in this way. So we started a digital journey and worked together with people from all over the world. We discovered how inspiring is it too literally work together with people from Iceland to Australia! So, what is good we are going to keep! That is the reason why I decided to plan a new series of webinars. For the coming time I have decided to focus on magical teachings that involve the cycle of nature. So that you get access to the magical lessons that nature can teach us. To this end I want to introduce you to Eternity’s magical Spinning Wheel.

The Digital Journey

Due to the Corona pandemic we have discovered the benefit of teaching by means of weekly webinars. For this reason we have included this way of teaching in our program. The series of webinars are called “The Digital Journey”. It is an adventure into the classical Mysteries that starts with the famous words that were once written above the Temples in ancient Greece:

Know Thyself

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:

Heal Thyself!

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? During the Digital Journey we will be working on a broad variation of topics all connected to the Tree of Life, the Tarot, Astrology, Alchemy, Mythology etc. We will focus on the Mysteries of Healing that are enclosed in the sacred teachings of all ages.

We meet weekly during a semester. Every semester consists of a series of 20 webinars. 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 is interested in the Sacred Teachings of All ages is welcome to enroll for this program. All the exercises and homework of the Digital Journey are additional to any other program of our school.

I am looking forward to meeting you online soon!

The Sailing Lessons

While we are all still enduring the stress of the pandemic we are going through for over a year now I want to tell you a little bit about some of the important strategic choices Initiates in the Hermetic Mysteries apply to their lives:

We all deal with difficult times in our lives, there are no exceptions and no free rides. There is only one guarantee in your life, and that is the fact that you will die in the end. Nobody knows when it comes and under what circumstances, but that it will come is a fact.

The First Choice: Become fearless

The first strategic choice that an Initiate makes is to stop being afraid for death. Some people may believe that there is an afterlife, or that reincarnation exists, others firmly believe that there is no-thing; their answers are ideas or beliefs and only few who are still alive are able to look behind those veils… so choose an option that you feel comfortable with: there is no scientific proof to keep you from deciding for yourself.

The Second Choice: Learn how to navigate

The real question is: if the end of your life is a fact, how do you spend your time in the meantime?
The answer is: To enhance the quality of the NOW.
How do you do this?
Life is like a vast ocean and sometimes the waters are calm, at other times you will need to ride the rough waves. The challenge at those stormy times is to keep your boat on track, to stay on top of the waves and to prevent it from capsizing. The Mystery Teachings train you in ‘sailing lessons’: they prepare you to conquer even the worst storms!

By teaching you the ‘sailing lessons’ we coach you in such a way that conquering the waves becomes a second nature to you. The techniques teach you:

  • Learn to look inside,
  • Acknowledge what is there
  • and heal what hurts by learning the lessons and cause the necessary changes.

The Third Choice: I come to know in order to Serve

The first and the second choice enable you to solidify your basis, the third choice is to invest in MEANING: Investigate how everything you experience serves a higher goal. There is a Light of Goodness in every experience. To search for that Light – regardless of your circumstances – is a method to keep yourself sane and energized under all circumstances. Then you decide how this Light can contribute to the Good of All.

This leads to the third strategic choice: “I come to know in order to Serve”. By making this choice you have shifted your consciousness from ‘What is in it for me’ to providing your unique contribution to the community, to the planet and bring that Light into dark places. Working and living according to this principle will enable you to work with passion and will make your life meaningful. You will begin to experience that you receive inspiration and vision.

The Digital Argo’s Journey

In order to take these Sailing Lessons you need to have a boat. The Argo was the mysterious boat that brought the Greek heroes of antiquity to the Earth to fulfill their highest mission. The Digital Argo is our international online group training. We meet weekly through webinars. Together we make this amazing Inner Journey by participating in the teaching, practicing the exercises and implementing the techniques in our daily life.
