For the first time in history, the outer school of The Brotherhood of Light is opening its door to an online mystery school known as 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. These courses were created by Elbert Benjamine, under the penname C. C. Zain, 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.
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.
Students are strongly urged to review the initial course, Introduction to the Academy and the BofL Lessons, which is free, contains an overview of all the courses, reviews the origins of this material, and shows you how to best use this site.
There are two paths of study. One requires membership in The Church of Light (Neophyte path). The other does not (Aspirant path). The Church of Light is a membership organization dedicated to disseminating the tenets of the Religion of the Stars and the occult sciences.
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 students take the first three courses in order. In general, however, the courses can be taken in any order.
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.
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. Just click the Study link on the main menu, or you can click here and open a new tab on your browser. Note: The Introductory course is set as a requirement to begin study in both the Aspirant and Neophyte paths.
How to Study as an Aspirant:
Standing at the Door of Nature’s Mysteries:
Remember, then, child of earth, that the mind is enlightened in seeking God with the eyes of the will. God has said, “Let there be Light,” and light inundated space. Humans should say, “Let truth show itself and good come to me.” And if they possess a healthy will, they will see the truth shine, and guided by it will attain all to which they aspire.
How to Study as a Neophyte:
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.
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, the courses can be taken in any order.
It is also recommended that you complete no more than one course per month. This allows the unconscious mind to process the new material including the award manuscript that you will receive after completing each course.
