For the first time in history, the outer school of The Brotherhood of Light is opening its door to an online mystery school format. This school is called the Academy of Hermetic Arts (AHA). The course material is taken directly from the Twenty-One 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, Introduction to Brotherhood of Light Studies, is free and an excellent overview of how to get started and discover the origins of this material. This free course is available on the Study page of this site. It is also marked as a required course and must be completed before beginning your studies.
The 21 Scientific Degrees, as set forth by C.C. Zain, were created by Elbert Benjamine at the request of the elders of The Brotherhood of Light in March 1910. The Twenty-One Courses comprise the most comprehensive and scientific system of ancient occultism ever put into written form. The system has the potential to awaken you to the inner plane and its influences, your astrological signature, your potential and windows of opportunities, the snares and pitfalls that often trap humanity, and the practices and abilities which will enable you to transcend the veil of death, as the soul embarks on its infinite journey of evolutionary progression into the effervescent vistas of conscious immortality.
Over the course of study, you will be provided the appropriate foundation of knowledge to help you to become a professional scientific astrologer, a practitioner of extra-sensory perception, an alchemist, a magician, and a master of personal development.
Our job is to INFORM you, so that you may KNOW, DARE, WILL, and REMAIN SILENT as you transform your life and the lives of those around you.
There are two paths of study. One requires membership in our Mother organization, The Church of Light. 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. Find more information about The Church of Light at www.light.org.
A student Member is referred to as a Neophyte. A 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.
The first three courses offer a proper foundation for each branch of study: Astrology, Alchemy and Magic. For this reason, it is highly recommended that both Neophytes and Aspirants take the first three courses in order. This is not a requirement and, in general, the courses can be taken in any order.
An overview of all the courses is found in the Introductory course. Two of the courses are divided into two parts. Each course contains topic quizzes to help you better understand the material. Completion of a course is marked by the opportunity to take a final exam.
Before enrollment, you may freely browse the outline of each of the twenty-one courses, found on the Study page link on the main menu, or you may click here to open a new tab in your browser. Select a course and expand the course content outline.
There are three purchasing options: you may purchase the courses (1) one at a time, (2) all at once for a significant discount, or (3) a single branch of courses, at a somewhat lesser discount. Again, the branches are defined as Astrology, Alchemy, and/or Tarot, Masonry and Esoteric Arts.
