Light on the Path - A Study Guide for Qabala, Alchemy and Astrology
We are pleased to announce the release of Light on the Path – A Study Guide for Qabala, Alchemy and Astrology. The perfect handbook for individual or group study and practice.
Light on the Path – A Study Guide for Qabala, Alchemy and Astrology from the Institute for Hermetic Studies is a self-paced program for the study and practice of Western esotericism. Using Hermetic Qabala as its core, individuals or groups can use this program to progressively study and apply the principles of ritual magic, practical alchemy (spagyrics and mineral) and astrology (natal, horary, and mundane) at their own pace. Each Year is approached in twenty-four sessions, or “Weeks” for those involved in group work, and has two sets of twenty-five questions which can be used as quizzes or catechisms to test one's level of proficiency. Standard off-the-shelf sources are suggested for use through-out the course, making it easy to obtain the needed references.
“Light on the Path is far and away the most complete study guide for the student of the Hermetic mysteries available today. I would have cheerfully given my eye teeth for a guide half so good when I was beginning my magical studies.” -- John Michael Greer, author of The Celtic Golden Dawn
