A Study Group is a group which meets regularly in order to discuss and deepen the contents of the training, to meditate, do exercises and some basic ritual work together. For more information about our training click here! Many study groups will eveolve into ritual groups after a while.
A Study Group is always organized by an esperienced student of the mysteries, who has succesfully completed the second level/stage of the basic training in ritual magic and the Western Mysteries, and this means they have gone through at least two years of intensive training. Intensive means daily or nearly daily meditation, regular ritual work and sophisticated studies. (In some exeptional cases a study group may be organized by a particularly talented student, who has not yet reached the second level/stage, but who is expected to attain it rather soon. Such a study group is called "being formulated". If a study group is called "planned for the future" no meetings are held yet.)
An Affiliated Group is a group, which - though not formally part of our outer court - works along the lines and with the principles of our Training and uses a part of our training system, such as the Inner Temple Meditations. Affiliated groups must aim to fulfil the standards of ethics and quality upheld by the Brotherhood of the Eternal Light and its outer court. Affiliated groups are supported by the Brotherhood.
We are an internationally recognized mystery school and magical lodge and offer serious magical training based on the principles of the mystical Qabbalah (Kabbalah, Kabbala, Kabala), Hermetic magic and the Western Mysteries. Magical training in an authentic mystery school (or magic school, and/or magical order) of the Western Mystery Tradition is the spiritual and mystical preparation for initiation of the student of the mysteries. Like every true magical lodge or magic school and every true Hermetic order we take training in magic very seriously. We stand in the spriritual tradition of the Rosicrucians and do not only teach the ancient ritual magic (or ceremonial magic), the Egyptian magic, the Celtic magic and the Greek Mysteries, but also the classical pillars of the Hermetik Tradition such as astrology and Tarot.
