Advanced Scrying Laboratory: A Practicum

From $49.99 USD every two weeks (Payments Ongoing til Course End)

Course Enrollment is Open!

Course Start Date: October 30, 2023

Welcome to the Scrying Laboratory! This is a new Blackthorne School class, offered for the first time, working with two in-depth opportunities for esoteric listening, presented and studied step by step, over the course of six months.

The first three months will be devoted to spirit conjuring and the second, to an internal study inspired by Jung’s work on the “unlived life,” or an imaginative trance into a decision not taken. Taken together, the principal purpose behind the class is to encourage the practitioner into places they may have previously thought were too uncomfortable to visit without some help. In addition to Harper Feist’s support, students will benefit from guidance and coaching from two advanced-level assistants for a high level of one-on-one support.

The course will comprise short videos posted bi-weekly alternating with bi-weekly Zoom sessions. Most of the student interactions will take place in a dedicated, private Facebook group. The class will have a very limited student group for maximum attention and interaction.

Why You Should Take this Course

This highly unique experiential laboratory is designed to both aid students in dialing their scrying abilities up to 11 as well as equipping them to participate in experimental exploration and occult research. 

Join highly gifted occultist Harper Feist in a groundbreaking hands-on experience of adventuring into the “uncharted territories” of scrying and spiritual praxis. From the safe container Harper expertly creates, you will improve your comfort and skill level while being supported and guided by adept occultists.

In this intimate, 6-8 month intensive you will build close community with a small number of moderately experienced students in scrying, of whom you are one! The ambitious group of participants will be ready to embark on an adventure and are eager to learn. If you are reading this page, then you are one of the chosen. Those who choose to can participate anonymously.

Only rarely will this course be offered, just as we can’t give a concrete course length due to the highly innovative and experimental nature of the course. Ideally, a community of occult explorers will be created who will continue to work and research together for years to come! (Don’t worry, we won’t charge you for years, lol.)

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you won’t want to miss!

Course Outline

A.) Classic External Scrying – first 3 Months. Students will choose an approach to study and develop, including classic ceremonial conjure, those summonings influenced by African Diasporic religions, and those with their roots in witchcraft.  Harper and her assistants will aid the students in the planning and execution of a summoning, as well as helping interpret received information. Participants will be asked to document their work in a private FB page so that all students can learn from one another’s efforts.

B.) Experimental Internal Scrying – second 3 Months. This portion of the class is intended to encourage students to use scrying skills to examine crossroads moments in their lives. This can be seen as the classic Jungian concept of Enantiodromia, “the emergence of the unconscious in the course of time.” It overlaps the poetic storytelling of Martin Shaw when he talks about the girl who emerges from the forest speaking a language that nobody understands. The primary experiment is to scry the road not taken, to examine what part of the operant is still present in the mystery of that option. The purpose behind this section is to enable you to “Trick your head into doing things it really cannot do.”

Course Prerequisites

In addition, you will need a Discord account to be added to the private Discord group. Help will be offered to those unfamiliar with the platform.
