In a world where the sea of almost unlimited information has become a problem, the Hermetic Academy represents for me a lighthouse for navigation.

Inner calm and strength…

Hermetic Academy has given me inner calm and the strength to use my own mind to make good decisions. I have found the answers to questions for which I had long given up the search. There is truly not an area of my life that has not been changed through these teachings.

Shelley Bartlett

Clarities arose that I never dared to dream of.

Through the Hermetic Academy I have received answers to the basic questions of life in theory and in my own life practice, connections between microcosm and macrocosm and mystical insights. For this I am very grateful and encourage everyone who feels the call within him to dare the small step into the Hermetic Academy, which in reality is a big one.

Josef Missethon
Dear Hermetic Team… The longing for inner and outer peace encouraged me to enroll in the basic course of Hermetic studies at your academy. Now, at the end of this basic course, I am happy to report that I have already succeeded in looking at my life from changed perspectives, putting misunderstandings into perspective, and recognizing suppressed sources of recurring conflict.

I expected to have to make course corrections to my previous spiritual outlook, to pour out the teacup, and I was/am ready to do so. Surprisingly, I have perceived this process so far rather as if I was educated to look at this “tea” properly first, to take the time to taste it, and to take a conscious sip, to perceive it in my inner being and to let it take effect before I (once again) pour it away to make room for something new…. So I thank you, for the previous accompaniment in the basic course and look forward to the further courses. With kind regards…

Renate Fuchs
After five months, I can already say that the Hermetic Academy has helped me to become more self-reliant in various areas of my life. I look forward to another lesson every week.
Markus Wolff
A universal treasure map that truly leads the way to the goal. Step by step, level by level. Thank you very much
Björn Gach
A world of deep, lasting inner peace…

Hermetic Academy and the training, teaching, and practice it provides has opened up a world of deep, lasting inner peace, self-discovery, hope, courage, and a capacity to give and receive love in a true and beautiful way. I am and will be forever grateful for its presence in my life. I would advise any person struggling with the serious existential questions of life, the nature of suffering, and your true purpose to step through the door and begin studying these principle.

Once I discovered The Hermetic Academy I never looked back…

After a few years of looking at various esoteric training systems, once I discovered The Hermetic Academy I never looked back. The experience has been (and continues to be) life-changing. The lessons are easy to understand, and the exercises are simple, but highly effective for personal change. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to make the most of themselves and take control of their life.

Ethan Bartlett
One day my soul began to awaken and thirst for wisdom and light.

After several years of inexhaustible search among books, lectures, various studies and esoteric disciplines, etc., I came to the blessed realization that I needed only one true mystery school. Fortune has brought me into the necessary circumstances to arrive at the Hermetic Academy.
To anyone reading this, I inform you that you are also most fortunate to come to this true mystery school. I wish you the necessary discipline, strength and love to fully realize/manifest the desire that brought you here and now to read these words. Inexhaustible wonders, unimaginable experiences of light, sailing in a sea of eternal wisdom, is what awaits the persevering student of the Hermetic Academy.

My gratitude to the pillars of the Hermetic Academy is as great as that of a soul grateful for having been given life, the life of its spirit,

8 exciting basic courses, which you can immediately implement in your life

We believe that you will be very interested to learn more about the courses of the Hermetic Academy, because many people who want to realize themselves are among our students.

Know thyself!

Perhaps you are one of those people who have always tried to understand the world in which you live. If the search for wisdom and knowledge is persistent, then the path leads to an authentic mystery school. There have always been mystery schools like the Hermetic Academy. Mystery schools were the spiritual centers of many ancient cultures. In the online training of the Hermetic Academy, we entrust you with the true esoteric tools and teachings that used to be accessible only to the inner circle of a few initiates.

Self-knowledge is the key to the mastery of life.

Since my youth, the question of what meaning life can have in view of its inevitable finiteness (death) has been agonizingly preoccupying me. The Western Mystery Tradition of the Hermetic Academy gives me daily through theory and practice the ever deeper self-knowledge of what holds the world together at its core.

Alexander Wolf
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen of the Hermetic Academy,
As well as possible, persistently, and perseveringly I have now practiced and continue to practice the miracles of Hermetics. Life has already changed fundamentally. Understanding and perceiving and observing cause and effect offers tremendous power. Life as a meditation is making appearances and illusions crumble.
I continue to practice and constant dripping wears away the stone.
Monika Rosenstatter
For years I have been on a spiritual quest to find the right path.

The Hermetic Laws of the Kybalion have fascinated me and I studied these teachings for several years. Again and again a new door of light opened. However, I did not get any further. Only when I registered at the Hermetic Academy and accepted the commandment of perseverance, I realize already in the basic course, after 6 lessons how important it is to build a solid foundation. I will persevere, one lesson after another, on the Hermetic Path, without rushing. I can feel and only recommend the knowledge and mysteries of this great academy. Thank God for this knowledge and the chance to have received the privilege to study at the Hermetic Academy.

Thomas Gerstner
Dear Hermetic Team… I want to take time to thank you very much for everything you do and provide! Through you, the life in me and how it externalizes itself is finding a designation. The perceptions and emotions given to me find a formulation, whereby piece by piece order returns. It is like a perfectly interlocking cogwheel, in all the movements that take place from the first day of study. Thank you also for the references to perseverance and any help on a higher level! In the 3rd chapter of Jeremiah it read, “Confess your iniquity before me, because I want to give you shepherds according to my heart who will feed you according to doctrine and wisdom. Then you can say Dear Father“. This bassically it summarizes my thoughts. The Hermetic Academy in its essence is according to his heart. Through you I can be confident again, and thank our God daily that at all times, as in the here and now, there are masters who lead us back to unity. God bless you!
In deep gratitude, warm greetings,
Jasmin Biedenbach

Recognizing the meaning of life – and also realizing it.

Almost everyone knows this feeling of looking into the night sky and asking the question of meaning in the face of the limitless sea of stars above us. The Hermetic Academy has not only helped me to recognize the meaning of life, but to realize it a little more every day.

“Knowledge is power” (Francis Bacon)

Mystery schools then as now use the best possible medium to disseminate teaching.

Long ago, teachers of mystery schools taught secret knowledge only from mouth to ear. The writing of writings took several years. Reproducing books was very time consuming and costly. Through Gutenberg’s invention of book printing, the Guardians of Timeless Wisdom were able to make this teaching accessible to more people. In our time there is the Internet. Thus we can grant you and numerous other people worldwide access to the Timeless Wisdom. Timeless wisdom is imperishable and endures for all eternity. However, the medium of transmission is adapted to modern possibilities by the guardians of teaching. Never before has it been so easy and in such a short time possible to receive these grandiose teachings. But, of course, it is your decision whether you, like thousands of other people, would like to seize this opportunity.

What you should know about the Hermetic Academy?

The vision of the Hermetic Academy is to be the platform for the world’s best spiritual education system that supports people in achieving worthwhile goals, virtues and spiritual refinement. The Academy was founded by Dr. Elias Rubenstein and his dedicated Hermetic Team to teach and preserve timeless wisdom. The three pillars of the Hermetic Academy have always been study, meditation and ritual. The Hermetic Academy entrusts you with these unique and powerful tools.

The term “hermeticism” comes from Hermes. In Greek mythology, Hermes is the mediator between mind and matter. Hermetics conveys a consistent view of the world. For thousands of years, the wisdom tradition of hermetics has guarded the tried and tested tools for the spiritual unfolding of man. The essential terms of hermetics are explained in the Hermetics Blog. Self-knowledge helps us to gain a greater understanding of life and to react to it. The online courses of the Hermetic Academy are available in German, English and Spanish. The mission of the Hermetic Academy is to make the most effective proven methods of personality development and spiritual self-knowledge available in the most modern way as a global market leader.

“As above, so below; as below, so above. (2. Hermetic Principle, The Kybalion)

Hermetic Academy powered by Hermetic World.

The Hermetic Academy is what I’ve always been looking for.

The Hermetic Academy captivates with a comprehensive and coherent description of the world.

I like the clarity and directness of the Hermetic Academy. It is a signpost in this still foggy and arbitrary age and helps to recognize structures in the world and in life. The Hermetic Academy captivates with a comprehensive and coherent description of the world, society and man and his relationships to higher levels, which I could not find anywhere else. The path constantly leads to confrontation with one’s own circumstances, which is the true practice of this path.
