Mystery School teaches Occult Science
If you know little or nothing about the Occult or have been led to believe it is 'evil' or unscientific what we have to say on this and our other pages may well change your mind.
This Mystery School teaches Occult Science by correspondence only. Although we are based in the United Kingdom (Great Britain), our members are spread all over the world. We offer no personal contacts or group meetings of any kind, so if you are seeking social networking or group activities we may not meet your needs.
We do not pretend that all our Teachings are of such a nature that no other school can have access to them, but we do aver that never before have these Teachings been presented in such a clear, concise, masterly and easily understandable form. This School is a fraternity of men and women who study the secrets of Man and the Universe. By familiarizing themselves with these great themes they can attain such mastery over all these principles that they will lead more useful and happy lives, which, by force of example, will help mankind in general along its path of more or less blind existence.
Our Teachings are based on exactly the same principles—though considerably extended and modernized in various ways—as the Occult Scientific Teachings of the Mystery Schools of ancient Egypt, who in their turn received them directly or indirectly from the Great Adepts and Masters of Atlantis. You can read more about the ancient Egyptian Mystery Schools in the column on your right. Our correspondence Course may be compared to a University Course of study in Philosophy, Natural and Occult laws and Science, Higher Ethics and Metaphysics. By virtue of these Teachings, the Student may enter the 'straight gate which leadeth unto life'—the Gateway to Initiation—to become a Light on the Way and a shining Torch in the Darkness of the gross materialism, which threatens to overwhelm Mankind in this present Cycle.
As we said earlier, we offer no personal contacts or meetings of any kind. Our Mystery School works entirely in secret. The Teachers and Students of our School do not reveal their identities as members to the general public, to their friends, or even amongst themselves. We do not even have a name by which we are known in the outside world. There is a SIMPLE REASON for all this secrecy which has nothing whatever to do with 'cults' or deception. The reason is that we aim at a total suppression of the PERSONAL element which so often leads to disruption and strife amongst even the finest groups of Occult Students and Mystics, thus avoiding the personal glorification of one—or more—members, at the expense of others. This is an old and well established Occult Law; too often unknown, ignored or forgotten.
You can read more about the many good reasons for secrecy in an excellent article published elsewhere on the Internet. We also recommend the Occult FAQ to be found on the same website which provides clear and sane answers to the many questions seekers interested in occultism and the occult ask.
Application for membership and qualifications needed
Application for membership is open to all, regardless of sex, age or religion, except that this School will NOT accept members who deny the existence of a Supreme Godhead, or Ruler of the Universe, or those who are not willing to obey in every way the constitutional laws of the country in which they dwell either as residents or temporary visitors.
Our teachings require the ability to read and write English to a good standard, hard work, sincerity and commitment over a long period of time—they are NOT suitable for thrill-seekers, mystery-mongers, or those seeking instant initiation and enlightenment in a few short weeks. In addition, the sincere student needs, if he or she is going to succeed, special gifts such as persistence, loyalty, and the ability to work hard and not be put off by mere worldly matters. It is useless to pretend today that we have less time for truly elevated study than was the case in olden times. In olden times people were just as busy with the ordinary things of life as they are today, but they rushed about less and may have been more sincere.
Genuine Teaching Academy
We would like to make it absolutely clear that this Mystery School is a genuine teaching academy that does not concern itself with politics or statecraft in any shape or form. It does not offer it's members social advancement, wealth or power. Such things have nothing to do with occult science or the genuine Mystery Teachings. It does not coerce, brainwash or manipulate its members in any way. All members are free to leave at ANY time, without repercussions of ANY sort. The School does not tell its members what they should or should not think, believe or do. Such interference is against all natural and occult laws. Nor does the School make a 'profit' from its students or from the sale of books or occult paraphernalia. The ONLY fees charged are for the sole purpose of writing, duplicating and posting course materials. The School teaches by correspondence ONLY and does NOT offer 'group sessions', 'rituals' or 'magic spells.' This information is also included in the School's Manifesto and Application Form.
As we said earlier, our Teachings are based on exactly the same occult principles and laws as the Teachings of the Hierophants of Ancient Egypt, India, Chaldea and Greece, who in their turn received them directly or indirectly from the Great Adepts and Masters of Atlantis. Moreover, these Teachings are absolutely true to the Old Wisdom, without having added to them the entirely misleading and fantastic claims of the lesser occult groups and teachers who meddle with the sacred lore by superimposing upon it their personal speculations and interpretations. Such groups and teachers often mean well, but all they succeed in doing in leading the genuine seeker away from Truth. We teach the Natural Laws of the Universe and NONE of our Teachings are in conflict with the highest ideals of any religion, or those of the great Teachers, such as Jesus and Buddha. These Studies are intended to lift up your Mind to the highest realms where you can discover Peace, Truth, Wisdom and Happiness. You will find a brief list of the many subjects taught on our occult teachings page.
It is worth repeating that we teach by postal correspondence ONLY. The School is divided into three Groups. The first Group is the Outer Circle, which consists of three Grades. It takes three years to master the teachings of these three Grades. The work consists of a deep study of Philosophy, material and Occult Science, Religion, and Metaphysics, as well as practical exercises to awaken the higher powers we all possess, but are lying dormant in most people. Each Grade contains 50 printed lectures on various subjects, mailed out to members weekly. The students of the Outer Circle may pass at the end of the three years into the Inner Group. But we wish to make it clear that only those with special attributes, inherent or acquired by deep study, can hope to succeed to the Inner work of the School. The third Group consists of the Great Adepts and Masters of the School. Further information on these Groups and Grades as well tuition fees is given in our manifesto (see below).
Each member is placed under the care of a personal teacher to whom they may write with any questions or concerns they have about the work. The School uses no set letters for this purpose, and each and every member is assured of the prompt, personal attention of their teacher at all times. We say this as we know of many lesser schools and groups that do not provide a structured course of learning or personal tuition. The members of such organisations are left to their own devices, leading inevitably to dissatisfaction, confusion and disillusionment. By following a method of one-to-one tuition and structured learning, this Mystery School provides every one of its members with the opportunity to master the whole of the edifice of occult science under its guidance. It is for this reason, as well as many others, that hardly any members drop out after a few short weeks or months, which is so often the case in many occult schools and orders.
