Kabbalah:
You're Doing it Wrong
Apokalypsis:
The Seven Seals
Kabbalah: You’re Doing It Wrong! is a 21 lesson course in modern heterodox Jewish kabbalah, including the so-called “ecstatic” kabbalah, ma’aseh merkava.  Each lesson contains a written lesson (5-15 pages long), including an annotated bibliography for further reading, as well as an audio recording (about an hour) of the “oral teaching” that accompanies the material.  Every student is assigned at least one “study partner”, but you may be placed in a small cohort of up to 5 students.  The audio lessons come with discussion questions to explore with your partners.  Many, but not all, lessons contain a guided trance experience.  The course is designed for people who have some familiarity with magical trance-work (such as shamanic journeying).  If you do not have that, you might want to learn that first.

The course is $20 per lesson, or $360 for all 21 classes (get 3 free!).  Scholarship and barter are available; we want your progress more than we want your money.  Email Sara at academy23@gmail.com to make arrangements to join the class!  New class sessions form as soon as a partner becomes available.  If you have someone(s) you would like to study with already, partner/group discounts are available.


Apokalypsis is a game of mystery and revelation, of poetry, and magic.  Ove the seven weeks of the game, you'll visit the Seven Churches of the Apocalypse in Lydia (modern Turkey), and uncover the ancient Mystery Cults buried beneath them.  

​On the meander-path of revelation, there are seven stairs, which are seven stars, which are seven immortal mystery cults. The Seven Churches of the Apocalypse are seals upon these gates, shackles on the truth Below, built on the ruins of the Temples of Magic. And yet, what is hidden is also the Revelation, and every Church is built on the ruins the previous Temple.


If sport is the sad compromise made by warrior peoples to slate a thrist for blood, art provides a similar succor to the soul of every struggling god-king deprived of his or her magic. Reclaiming that divine rite requires retracing the path of its greatest destroyer, the Pauline Church, and excavating from the chthonic ruins beneath their first Churchs the pagan powers that are still held beneath. These so-called Seven Churchs of the Apocalypse each contain another piece of the ancient mysteries that Paul's church had to eliminate in order to secure his own cult's supremacy. The Age of his supremacy is over.
