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, through the lineage of the teacher.

Our trainings are not just classes, they are magical workings in themselves, with a spark of initiation passed down from teacher to student. This in turn links the recipient into the egregore of the school, an integral source of collective wisdom and power that our students have access to. Required prerequisites contribute to the integrity of the collective, ensuring that students peforming ritual together have shared initiatory experience.

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.

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 and 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, or Magic School.

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 you may request a payment plan for any upcoming class 3 weeks or longer. Simply send us an email to get started.

Can I get the recording of a class I attended?
Most of our classes are recorded. You can always see if a class is recorded when you look at the top of the class page. The recordings are sent automatically to absentees within 24 hours after the end of the event. The AM Lodge recordings are available for purchase for $4.99.

What are the AM Lodge prerequisites?
To be any person of sound mind and body who enters by their own free will, and considers themselves to be a person of faith, honesty, courage, humility and in good standing in the material world. Most importantly, one should be a sincere seeker and participate.
You are welcome to jump in at any time, it doesn’t matter where we are at in a series. Now is always a perfect time to start.
