Thelema and the Western Mystery Tradition: Alchemy

Private Location

Alchemy is a branch of the Western Mystery Tradition concerned primarily with the power of transformation, most famously of lead into gold. While this operation takes years or decades of training and dedicated preparation, we will demonstrate the feasibility of this task and outline the stages leading to its accomplishment so that those interested in pursuing it can gain some idea of the journey ahead. We will introduce the processes and symbols of alchemy, discuss the twelve stages of the Great Work, and look at ways forward for aspiring alchemists seeking further instruction and training. This class will be held on the first and third Thursday of every month in the South Bay. To RSVP and receive the meeting address please see our Meetup page. ——— Qabalah, astrology, tarot. Alchemy, magick, initiation. Science, art, literature. What is the Great Work and how does the study of these topics come into play in the quest to uncover our own Mystery? These are questions we will pursue in this weekly class. You will be introduced to various aspects of Western Magick and Mysticism, each class providing a stepping stone toward further exploration. Its theoretical scope will assist in making sense of many of occultism's most hidden processes, while its practical aspect will not only change how you think of yourself and the universe, but also the manner in which you hold those thoughts. This class is presented by College of Thelema and taught by Zeph Bender, a Grand Chief of Temple of Thelema and a student and practitioner of occultism for 30 years. We do not charge a fee for the class, however a $10 Donation is suggested.
