All great thinkers are out of step with the times they live in.
They need to be able to think outside the square.
Only by thinking outside the square,
Can they create the vision required to see how situations can be changed.
This path leaves the wayfarer feeling isolated and frustrated
Wondering why they exist in the era at all.
The School of Magical Practices is my dream to explore techniques, knowledge and research of the dark world called the Psychic.
I have spent most of my life exploring and studying this so hidden world. Why I was so drawn to it I do not know.
Maybe it was because my father delved very deeply into secret ritual with his freemasonry. At least it was secret to us. As a child I had many furtive attempts to decipher the ritual book. He was a great example actually. He lived long enough to become a Grand Master, initiate his protégé as the Master. Raise his voice for womyn to be admitted into the Lodge and then he passed on.
He also had many books by Denis Wheatley, stories about defeating dark magicians. I liked these to but I was more curious about the world of the darkness and who magicians were and did they really exist other than in fantasy?
So my life became a journey of exploring the tools of the Magic. The teachers for these subjects were often humble people found in very ordinary circumstances whose lives reflected the same amount of curiosity as mine did. Lone workers, inspired by a world most people didn’t or couldn’t see, yet totally dedicated to the arts they adhered too.
This quiet world of the Psychic has become more visible over the years. Along with the visibility has come the voices against it. The opposition to the Psychic world is often strongly emotive, fearful and extremely dogmatic. The roots of this dual goes back through time to the burning fields where the feminine healers were tortured at the hands of the mighty male dogmas. The power of light versus the power of the hidden is an age old battle. This battle has turned many great Psychics to hide in the towers of Academia, unable to stand proudly in the true roots of their knowledge.
The general populace believe the Psychic is an uneducated person, as if the only educated people exist within the towers of Academia. These towers don’t offer the subjects of the Psychic. In fact they say Magic and its accomplices don’t even exist. It is often the people who loose their way in psychotic drama that actually find the path of the Psychic. Tell them the world of the unconscious dark mind doesn’t exist. Maybe the path of the Psychic Warrior chooses it own.
The School of Magical Practices is a space that allows the liberty to explore any reality that is deemed magic. Within this space knowledge does not have to fit into any set format or seek anyone’s approval to be judged.
It is here we create the labyrinth. Take any subject and there will be a certain amount of knowledge already established. As we learn and explore the knowledge base expands. Each participant works from the established body of knowledge until they can open doorways for themselves and begin independent journeys of discovery.
At present the courses offered by the School of Magical Practices are limited to my knowledge areas.
