Facilitated by Rufus Harrington and Julia Phillips
Rufus Harrington and Julia Phillips each have more than 30 years of experience of studying and teaching an oral system of Hermetic Magic. Rufus is an Initiate, a practising psychotherapist, and University Director of Studies. Julia is a published author on esoteric subjects and an experienced lecturer.
Together they have created a practical approach to teaching Hermetic Magic, based upon the principles of classic magical techniques. There are two options for participation: Practitioner level, which is designed for people who want to practise Hermetic Magic, experiencing personal gnosis by travelling within the elemental realms; and a Masterclass level of extended study for those who wish to run their own Hermetic Magic teaching groups.
Hermetic Magic: Practitioner
A two-hour workshop that provides an introduction to Hermetic Magic and gives an experience through a guided visualisation to introduce participants to the techniques of working within the elemental worlds. This will be repeated periodically to offer experiences of the different elements.
Hermetic Magic Stages One to Five: Masterclass
A two-day experiential Masterclass.
Day One provides participants with four guided visualisations working within the elemental realms, followed by a ritual to create the Temple of the Spirit. Day Two begins with a discussion about working with the Elements followed by a visualisation to call the Inner Guide into the Temple of the Spirit.
Stages Two to Five
Stages two to five will follow the pattern of a two-day Masterclass, taking participants further into the architecture and practice of Hermetic Magic. This includes development of the Temple of the Spirit and will provide participants with ongoing support to run their own Hermetic Magic groups.
Day one of this Masterclass will consist of Guided Visualisations and Discussion of Air and Fire, Guided Visualisations and Discussion of Water and Earth and a Ritual to build the Temple of the Spirit. Day two will include a general discussion of Working with the Elements and Calling the Inner Guide into the Temple of the Spirit, followed by a session on Next Steps in Hermetic Magic.
