The Society of the Temple

The Society of the Temple is the container for post Mystery School courses that do not confer degree or title, but explore and expand our mystical knowledge, as rooted in the Temple’s Three Rays of Witchcraft paradigm. Designed to encourage exploration and experience on your own path, homework is not required for review, but sharing is encouraged.

Deep and regular practice of ritual and mystical journey will be necessary to fully experience and embody these teachings. These paths are for spiritual development and illumination, “crafting” your soul to contain a more fully developed consciousness, seeking greater harmony with the cosmos.

The Society embodies a potential nine year course of study, divided into three levels of three rays. Each level has two prerequisites: Three Rays of Witchcraft I, II, and III and Merkaba I, II, and III. After each level prerequisite, you can walk one of the paths for nine months. At the completion of a nine-month path, you have the option to walk another path of the same level, or continue on one path to the next level.

Recorded: Recorded classes will be delivered as downloadable .mp3 files with accompanying class handouts and written materials in .pdf format.

In-person and Online: In-person and online courses are offered live. The in-person courses will be offered at the Temple of Witchcraft: 49 N. Policy St., Salem, NH 03079. The online course will be offered by Zoom Video Conferencing.

  • Prerequisite classes of Three Rays of Witchcraft I, II, and III and Merkaba I, II, and III are open to anyone.

Recorded, Class Release Date: February 28, 2021 • $75

The Merkaba is the “chariot of light” that is developed as the vehicle for consciousness in this and all worlds. A modern meditation used to craft the vessel of consciousness, the cosmic ark, so one can more fully embody the higher self and the energies expanding beyond ordinary consciousness in the waking world. Bridging between the occult and the New Age, the merkaba meditation uses precise sacred geometry of the Platonic Solids, visualization, energy work, breath work and mantra as a repeated, disciplined technique for spiritual development. Learn more how the mysteries of the Star Tetrahedron fit into the occultism of the Craft by learning more about Qabalah, Egyptian associations, circle magick,  and the Mighty Dead. A very comprehensive course explaining the meditation and how to use your Merkaba for healing, protection, journeying and manifestation.
