Loading From the Inner Plane
For the first time in history, the outer school of The Brotherhood of Light is reopening its door as the Academy of Hermetic Arts (AHA) in an online mystery school format. The course material is taken directly from the Brotherhood of Light Courses on the hermetic arts by C. C Zain.
You are invited to engage in this authentic process of unfoldment following the courses in their original sequence. This online curriculum is sponsored by The Church of Light. You can find more information about The Church of Light at www.light.org.
The initial course, CS00 Introduction to Brotherhood of Light Studies, is free and is an excellent way to get acquainted with the great material offered in the online curriculum. This free course is available on the “Study” page of this site. Click here to view in a separate tab.
There are twenty-one courses in the curriculum. (Two of the courses are divided into two parts.) Each course contains both topic quizzes, to help you better understand the material, and a final exam. You may freely browse the content outline of each of the twenty-one courses. Just select the “Study” page link from the main menu, select a course and expand the course content outline.
There are two paths of study. One requires membership, the other does not. The Church of Light is a membership organization dedicated to disseminating the tenets of the Religion of the Stars and the occult sciences. While membership in the organization is not required to enroll in our online course of study, there are additional benefits to be derived from membership. The benefits of each path are described below.
The student member is referred to as a Neophyte. The non-member student is referred to as an Aspirant. While both these terms have an inner meaning, they are primarily used as a means of clarification. It is highly recommended that the Neophyte take the first three courses in order because they offer a good foundation for the rest of the material. In general, however, the courses can be taken in any order.
There are three purchasing options: (1) you may purchase the courses one at a time at your convenience, (2) purchase them all at once at a significant discount, or (3) purchase a single branch of courses, at a somewhat lesser discount, from the Astrology branch, the Alchemy branch, and/or the Tarot, Masonry and Esoteric Arts branch.
Membership in The Church of Light is not required for this path because you will not be receiving initiation material and private award manuscripts. Simply purchase your course(s) on the “Study” page and start studying. Click here to open a new tab and be taken directly to the Study page.
Because you will be receiving initiation material and private award manuscripts, membership in The Church of Light—the keeper of The Brotherhood of Light Lessons—is required. Membership is something to consider seriously because it requires pledging mental, spiritual, and financial support for the organization. You will be asked to make a New Member donation on the membership application.
If your choice is to become a member, click here to open a separate tab on the light.org site where you can complete and submit your application. Or, if you prefer, go directly to the light.org website, click on “Membership” and then select “Membership Application.” After completing your application, be sure to switch back to this tab to complete your course purchase and begin your studies.
Note: Processing the application for membership can take several days. You will be notified by email of acceptance and afterwards receive a New Member Package. While you are waiting for acceptance into the organization, you may begin your studies by purchasing your course(s) of interest.
If you are already a member of The Church of Light, click the “Study” page link on the main menu. Select your first course(s) and get started sounding the mysteries of the hermetic arts. (How/when is the MR entered into the AHA profile?)
Note: It is recommended that the Neophyte take the first three courses in order because they offer a good foundation for the rest of the material. After the first three courses, the courses can be taken in any order.
