This is an ongoing facilitated study group presenting quality talks, demonstrations, ritual and meditations, that supports those wishing to further their knowledge both theoretical and practical, in contemporary Hermetic Philosophy and Magick. The group also acts as a portal to those who wish to make a deeper commitment to the Great Work, and that want to become more involved with the Western Mystery Tradition of Ritual, Ceremonial Magick, Rites of Initiation, and practical Occultism. The group meets every 4 to 6 weeks, meetings are kept to a small number and are designed to be intimate and experiential. Cost is a donation within each participants means.
This meetup page is one of a number of access points to this group.
This group would best suit those with basic magical knowledge and/or practice, and who wish to be supported and guided to take this further. Though, any person with a sincere interest in the Western Traditions, no matter how new, is very welcome to make contact.
Presentations are given within the added perspective of the facilitators personal experience. Topics extend beyond, though most often centre around, the Hermetic Qabalah and its practical application in modern contemporary Hermetic Magick and Occultism. Some examples of areas explored are:
The Tree of Life - Elemental, Tarot and Astrological Correspondences - Temple Equipment - The Four Worlds - Parts of the Soul - Circuits of Force - Gematria - Ritual - Ceremonial Magick - Theurgy - Kemetic Egyptian Mythology - Symbolism - Magical Languages - Hermetic History - etc.
The contemporary Hermetic perspectives that inform this group comes from the works of such luminaries as John Dee, Eliphaz Levi, Scwaller de Lubicz, W.E. Butler, W.G. Gray, Aleister Crowley, Dion Fortune, Kenneth Grant, and Oliver St John. You may also have heard of such Esoteric Orders within the Western Magical Tradition, such as the historical Orders of the Golden Dawn, Alpha et Omega, Argenteum Astrum, and Ordo Astri. Though the group is not limited to these examples.
The Study group is intended to be a valuable resource point of learning and support in the Hermetic arts for its participants. It is intended to be inclusive, interactive, experiential and fun. it is a safe and welcoming space that also seeks to foster communal experiences around its participants interests in Hermetic Philosophy and Magick.
If you decide you would like to attend, you will need to telephone me to introduce ourselves to each other, to receive the address, for a brief conversation around your interests and experiences, and any questions or further information. Meetings are kept small and spaces are limited. Anyone is welcome to contact who would like to know more.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
