Participants in this course will plunge into the world of ancient Hellenic magic, exploring and implementing the surprising technologies relied on by sorcerers of Hekate for a thousand years, many of which are all but forgotten today.
The course will take place over thirteen weeks. In the first month participants will encounter HEKATE THE TITAN. By immersing themselves in the devotional practices of the Hellenic world of late antiquity, they will discover the true difference between magic and devotion, and master the strange techniques of divine compulsion, which sorcerers believed could bend the very skein of Fate.
In the second month they will encounter HEKATE THE PSYCHOPOMP by descending into the Underworld to engage in the necrosophic praxis of Hekatean magic, which is nothing less than raising and commanding the restless dead, as revealed by curse tablets, defixiones, and the spells of the Greek Magical Papyri.
Finally, in the third month, they will ascend to the heights of heaven to experience HEKATE THE CREATRIX by defining the dizzying declensions of Neoplatonic thought, and partaking in the fiery theurgy of the Chaldean Oracles.
All weekly classes will include both live and recorded presentations, and participants will be provided with numerous esoteric primary sources to study, to include the writings of Plato, Aeschylus, Apollonius, Iamblichus, the Gnostic gospels, the Chaldean Oracles and the Greek Magical Papyri. Students will receive private consultations with Jack Grayle as well, and will have the option of customizing course assignments to their specific path in order to gain a lasting, personal experience of the Queen of the Crossroads.
