What we're about

This group is for people of all skill levels and experience in the esoteric, especially Western esoteric traditions. We will be hosting a book club and study sessions focusing on Hermetic Qabalah and branching out into other relevant areas of interest. A heavy emphasis will be placed on syncretism, cross-comparison with other sources and traditions, and forging our own meanings and paths.

Already knowledgeable about Qabalah? Heard of it and just curious to find out more? Bring all of your ideas, questions, and enthusiasm to this club! Our first book will be Mystical Qabalah by Dion Fortune, which is a great place for beginners. The group will be as in-depth as deemed appropriate by its members once it's up and running. Watch for meetups announced soon!

CHICAGO ESOTERIC BOOK CLUB: The Mystical Qabalah (#2)

Thank you for sticking with us through some growing pains! This is the second meeting of the Esoteric Book Club, and we will continue our reading of The Mystical Qabalah by Dion Fortune. In this meeting, we will be covering up to Part II (Chapter 14; General Considerations). If you were not able to make it to the first meeting, please read as much as you can and we will get you up to speed. Possible topics of discussion include: foundational layout and correspondences of the tree, uses, connections to spiritual working, and what direction we'd like to take the group in now that we have done a bit more of the serious reading. We will also bring a couple tarot decks for cross-comparison -- feel free to bring yours, though it is not required. We do ask, however, that you bring your book (either paper copy or device with PDF/ebook). Since we are meeting at a coffee shop, please be prepared to buy a drink or snack. Non-caffeinated and vegan options are available. Also, please let us know in advance if you need any accommodations with seating. Look forward to seeing you there!
