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.
