Harper Feist Offering Online Course in Scyring

Thelema, NOW! host Harper Feister is offering an online course at The Blackthorne School:

“A 6-week online course taught by Harper Feist. Course meets weekly via FaceBook group and videos posted to our website. Some course payment plan options may exceed the duration of the course in efforts to make the course more accessible to many.”

Why You Should Take this Course

Sensing the invisible world is critically important for nearly all magical practitioners and yet, it’s set upon a pedestal that is too high to reach. In the ceremonial magic community, it is commonly thought that the only goal is to achieve full visible manifestation of an entity. If you have doubts about your ability to make this happen, and we all do, this can either destroy your confidence during a working, or worse, make you decide not to even try.

The point of this short series of classes is to convince you that you’re not only capable of doing this type of work, but because you’re an incarnated person (i.e. you have a body), you’re ideal for doing it.

The class will start with a historical view of the art of scrying.  First, acquainting you with our forefathers and mothers. It will discuss the fact that scrying is not a monolithic idea; that every spiritual tradition has its own take on the practice. We will dissect the statement about the body being the medium, we’ll develop some habits and practices, and then we’ll do an exercise where everyone together will perform an experiment in distance working.

This class will be interactive; all students will be encouraged to participate as much as they like. As much as anything, it will be the questions we ask one another that will peel away the reticence to attempting to feel the world in a slightly different way.

Lastly, it is to be expected that changing the way you interact with the invisible world will not just alter that relationship. It is possible that becoming more selectively sensitive to our invisible friends will make you a better friend to the living, a better listener, a better lover. Please come and open yourself, just a little more, to a larger world.

Course Information

The course will take place over six weeks and include video presentations and detailed text documents.  In addition, students will receive private consultations with Harper Feist through FaceBook, and will have the option of customizing course assignments to their specific path in order to gain a lasting, personal experience.

After registering for the course, we will add you to a private FaceBook group along with the other students in this course.  We’ve found this is a great way to share your journey in this course together. 

Course Outline
Week 1:

First, we will wrestle with the definition of scrying. We will also dive into a discussion of the traditional forms of scrying in the Western Magical Tradition, starting with the Pythia. This class will discuss ritual technology and expected results.

Week 2:

In the second class, we will examine modern methods of encountering gods and spirits. At least one FB discussion will be held about how these encounters are presented in movies.

Week 3:

Will be a critique of the human sensor suite: toward answering the question of what is “real.” This lesson will include a discussion about entheogens and how to feign their use with your own body chemistry, and a short experiment.

Week 4:

The week will begin a discussion of preparation of the body for working. This lesson will include some interesting exercises.

Week 5:

This class will be focused on staying present during the working. Attention: how to get there and stay there.

Week 6:

Putting it all together. This week will include a working that we’ll each do alone with the intention of sharing notes.
