Weekly and monthly events happen on a recurring basis and are intended for students who want to build a regular practice. There are no prerequisite requirements and you may attend whenever you like. These events are also a great way to meet our teachers and fellow students before taking deeper training. All students are also able to take meditations, healing and ceremony events listed below



Meditations, Healing and Ceremony:

Ritual Trainings are one-time initiatory in-depth transmissions in the ritual workings of the 22 Teachings Magical Program. They are intended to be taken individually for the student of magic to then integrate the rituals into their regular personal practice 

Ritual Training:

Series are classes which may also be taken separately


Courses are the in-depth trainings which require commitment for the duration of the course. They usually include workbooks, may have homework, and are recorded in case you need to miss a week. Before taking courses, it is suggested and in some cases required that all students take Magic Fundamentals (2-day intensive).

Courses rotate and are generally taught 1-2x per year depending on interest. You mail email us to be notified when registration opens.

Additional FAQ

Can you explain the prerequisites?
You will find that our courses have prerequisites, which may be the Magic Fundamentals Intensive, or in the case of Level II courses like Astrology or Hermetic Qabalah, you need to have completed Level 1.  LBRP is also prerequisite for higher level training. Please pay attention when you are signing up, any prerequisites will be listed and linked.

If you are not sure whether you have completed a prerequisite, you are welcome to email us and we can look up your records.

Sometimes, people register with different names and things don’t get properly recorded so please do your best to be consistent when registering, or leave a comment at check out if it is for a different person than the purchaser.

Magic Fundamentals, LBRP, and Hermetic Qabalah Level I are all available as recordings, to get you qualified for further training.

What if I learned the Prerequisite on my own/from another teacher etc.?
We understand that you may already have a practice, experience or education. However, what is passed down in a mystery school is an energetic link, to the lineage of the teacher. This is why all students must go through the levels.

22 Teachings teaches and practices a unique Magical System which is built upon the Western Mystery Tradition and owes much to the work of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, but which contains its own practices, rituals, and signs in addition to the traditional ones. We are striving to ever evolve this living tradition.

I’m not sure where to start or what to study next?
Depending on your interests, the best way to start is to pick one class that appeals to you and just begin. Magical training is never specifically linear. All of our teachers offer one-off events, like the Middle Pillar ritual, Transformative Writing, and our other monthly events. These have no prerequisites.
The AM Lodge meets every Saturday is a great way to begin practicing magic right away.
It is also recommended to do the LBRP training, and the Hermetic Qabalah reinitiation course to establish your foundation.
Next, if you are ready to go into coursework, you should do the Magic Fundamentals 2-day Intensive.
From there you will be ready to begin more intensive courses like Tarot, Astrology, Dream Alchemy or Developing Intuition.

Our staff is here to help you and you are welcome to reach out with an email. You can also book a session with any of our staff as a reading or consultation to help determine the best next steps on your path.

Can I take multiple courses at once?
Everyone is different, and depending on your personal situation, you may be able to take multiple courses at once, but remember that the courses require additional homework and practice outside of class. Students are often eager to take everything as it becomes available but remember, you have your entire life to study and learn. It can be better to slow down and absorb, and know that the opportunity to take the next course will be there when you are ready.

I can’t afford to pay for a course up front, do you offer a payment plan?
All recorded classes require payment in full at time of purchase, but for live courses that might span 8 to 9 weeks, yes we can work with you to set up a payment plan, simply send us an email to get started.

Can I get the recording of a class I attended?
Most of our classes are recorded and if you send an email, you can request the recording of a class you signed up for. The recordings are sent automatically to absentees, except for the Lodge. The AM Lodge recordings are available for purchase for $4.99. If you are absent from the Arboretum Mysticum and you donated a minimum of that amount at the time you signed up, then you may email and request the recording, you don’t have to buy it again.

What are the AM Lodge prerequisites?
Only to be a sincere seeker and participate. You can jump in at any time, it doesn’t matter where we are at in a series. Now, is always a perfect time to start.
