For those students who have completed the first 6 Hermetic Qabalah lectures and re-initiation, and who are grounded in their LBRP practice, this 6-part course is the next stage in the training of ceremonial magic and deeper study.
Each class is intended to be done in order, and if you miss any classes, recordings will be posted as they become available.
In the Level One Hermetic Qabalah lectures, the student established the correspondences of the objective nature of the Qabalistic Tree of Life and gained the keys to working through the sephirot. The tarot arcana, Hebrew letters and gematria were introduced. This 2nd level takes the magician into the subjective realm, with deeper practical application and ritual working.
Participation in this course will provide a comprehensive study of the Paths of the Tree 11-32 through the four worlds – the Intelligences, Arcana, Letters, Colors and Correspondences. This information will then be used for an in-depth exploration of work from the Adeptus Minor Grade of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in two parts, the Analysis of the Keyword – a Qabalistic decoding of the INRI formula, and the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Hexagram, its Egyptian Godforms, hexagrams and applications. Teachings continue with the Rose Cross Lamen and students work through its parts and symbolism, and learn the art of Sigil work upon the 22-petaled rose. This course concludes with the Rose Cross Ritual.
