Evolutionary Power & Alchemical Process

Evolutionary Powers & Alchemical Process

Aethyrius Deep Magic, Practical Alchemy, Transcendence

The conscious mind is not a singularity—it is a complex of functions and forces which ebb and flow within each other, and their movement creates thoughts and impressions that we believe to be our individual consciousness. Consciousness, by the very context of the word denotes a fullness, a purity, conveyed through faculties of awakened perception. Our conscious mind, however, is …

Gnosis Illumination Understanding

Gnosis in Context is Understanding

Aethyrius Transcendence

My entire life I’ve never been satisfied with the vast majority of answers I was ever given on traditional spiritual matters, much less anything beyond the superficial norm.

Seership & Initiatory Illumination

Seership & Initiatory Illumination

Aethyrius Deep Magic

Illuminatory Seership is a profound and truly Western magical initiatory practice, though little understood.

Hermetic Arts

Aethyrius Practical Alchemy, Deep Magic
