Esoteric Mystery School

Study at our Online Mystery School

Famed esotericist S.A. Weor said of esoteric and alternative Christians:

“We were thrown to the lions in the circuses of Rome, and we celebrated our rituals in the catacombs. We were burnt alive in the flames of the Roman Catholic inquisition. We accompanied Jesus Christ in the Holy Land. We were the mystical Essenes of Palestine. We are not improvising opportunist doctrines. We were hidden during twenty centuries and we are now returning once again to the street carrying on our shoulders the old, rough and heavy cross. Paul took our doctrine to Rome and he was a Nazarene Gnostic. Christ taught our doctrine in secrecy to the seventy disciples. The Sethani, Peratae, Carpocratians, Nazarenes and Essenes are Gnostic. The Egyptian and Aztec Mysteries, the Mysteries of Rome, Troy, Carthage, of Eleusis, India, of the Druids, Pythagoreans, Kambirs, of Mithra and Persia, etc. are in their entirety that which we call Gnosis or Gnosticism. We now once again open to the ancient Gnostic Sanctuaries which were closed upon the arrival of the dark age. We are now opening the authentic Initiatic Colleges.”

We are also accepting candidates for the Holy Orders study program.

Come Study with us

The EsotericMystery School has been called the most complete, most affordable, non-stuffy, non-boring initiatic western style Mystery School in existence today. All of our Orders are historically accurate, either meticulously and painstaking researched over at least a dozen years, or with traceable lineage which stretches back over centuries. The School encompasses all the “secret” (a better word is hidden) and known teachings of the West, i.e. Indo-European and Mediterranean Occult*, with a healthy touch from our Indo-cousins (Vedanta hindu teachings), Tibetan Buddhism and Taoism. Our focus is esotericism (especially Esoteric Christianity), true gnostic teachings, hermeticism and the world’s wisdom traditions. Ancestral teachings such as shamanism, Celtic, Teutonic and Native American (to name a few) also have their place in our lessons, as do world mythology, Jungian thought, Ken Wilber and other liberating philosophies. The School’s deeper emphasis is on experiencing the Divine, experiencing your spiritual self, directly. The teachings are not merely intellectual; you will not be wallowing in shallow water but delving into deep religion / spirituality. It’s time to evolve upward! We strongly believe that your own genetic memory will lead you to the teachings you need. What you learn will then lead you to fulfilling whatever task, mission or destiny the Divine has set you on this planet for. If you are here, you are supposed to be. It’s usually that simple.
*It is important to note that Occult means “hidden.” An occultist is a “seeker of the hidden knowledge.” Occult is not a word meaning black magic, as some detractors of the mystery schools claim. Secrets were kept, and still are to a certain extent. This body of teachings was called the occult/hidden knowledge starting in the Middle Ages when to bring such teachings out into the open—such as the Earth is round, and that women DO have souls—would get you burned or imprisoned.
Lessons will come to you via e-mail and website pages. You read the material, (which comes from all manner of exciting sources), answer the questions, try the exercises, fill out any workbook pages on the website then send in your answers via e-mail.

We “walk” you through different levels of self-initiation. You may climb the initiation ladder of the ancient mystery schools without ever going to a lodge or submitting yourself to long, expensive, too easy, (often boring!) lessons about stuff you already know. Our program is designed to accommodate YOUR pace. If you don’t want to take four years just to get through the first degree, you can do it in four weeks! Just complete the lessons, send in your assignments and go through the seven degrees, from Catechumen, Initiate, Diakon, Arch-Diakon, (etc.) to Adept and Mage or Presvyter(a) / Priest in your own time.

The Esoteric Mystery School also covers material that many of the stuffy out-dated ceremonial Orders didn’t know about when they were founded. For example: new discoveries of ancient manuscripts, artifacts and teachings. We include teachings many of the mystery schools and lodges purposely leave out. Their leaders often think certain teachings are “too dangerous” or “best left alone.” We believe in share the knowledge. This means share the secrets and let the seeker choose what she or he can handle. There is no danger in positive, righteous Great-Working.

Our school has also been called the only non-egotistical Mystery School online. Yes, we have degrees, with different colored robes, patches, sashes, secret hand signals, passwords, etc; but it is easy to climb the ranks, and no one gets any power kicks or they get kicked somewhere else…

What does “contacted” mean?
There are Guardians and Guides — real entities behind symbols like the Rose and the Cross, the Dove and the Eagle, the East, Water, etc. They communicate with (and through) students of the Occult. They have done so down through the ages. If you are open-minded, yet discreet, and are actively seeking the divine—it will come to you and manifest through you. It may even use you as a tool or a mouthpiece.

When the Guardians of the Knowledge want to dispense the ancient teachings, they do so. They don’t care about lineage or who is famous, or has a pedigree. They care about who will use the teachings properly, positively, to actually get something done for mankind. The same knowledge studied at the ancient mystery schools or in modern mystery schools today, can be given to an Initiate all in one night—in a dream or a vision for example. If the line needs “reviving,” the Guides will take it to any new students open enough to receive such a dispensation. “Many are called, few are chosen,” was one of Yeshua’s favorite catch-phrases. History is full of examples of esoteric mages who suddenly show up and start teaching without so-called lineage, without a teacher. (Jacob Bohme, Meister Eckhart, Hildegarde of Bingen).

Some esotericists believe that “those who have gone before” watch over and guide the living students. When a mystery school is in contact with these higher beings/ forces/ entities/ archetypes/ Guardians/ Guides it is called “contacted.” Only positive masters, angels and beings are allowed to make the contact with our Mystery School. All of the students of such a school or Order are possible “channels” for the contacted information. So watch out when you join our ranks….. !

The Esoteric Mystery School is in contact with these forces, powers and energies. Many think of them as Angel guides or spirit guides. They keep us on the right track, lead us to the right materials hidden in dusty out of print books, manuscripts in hidaway places, to special unknown meanings behind Bible verses or buried in the Bible code itself. We are strict in following the traditions of the ancients, but we are also open to new teachings designed for what we humans are facing right now right here on this sacred rock.

Negative forces, and they do exist, are kept out by banishings and protections called wardings. Those familiar with ceremonial magic will recognize these concepts. Certain darker Orders and Lodges enjoy flirting with the disastrous side of the universe. Everyone’s heard of them–they’re the Black Magick practitioners. Poor blind sots. The name Sa-mael, a Hebrew angel of death also known as Shaitan or Satan, means in Hebrew, “blinded by [or to] the Divine.” He was one bad dude who shut his eyes to the positive forces in the universe and focused solely on the negative hurtful energies. Bad idea. Evil eventually destroys the Initiates who get sucked into it. That may be nature’s way of dealing with cosmic evil—just waiting for it to consume itself. We have none of that here, and are diligent in keeping it out. You, as an Initiate of the Order will have a part in that shielding and warding. It is a sober duty.
