“Knowledge is Power” (Francis Bacon)

Then, as now, mystery schools used the best possible medium to disseminate teaching.

Long ago, the teachers of the mystery schools taught their students only from mouth to ear. The creation of writings took several years. Reproducing books was very time consuming and costly. Through Gutenberg’s invention of book printing, the Guardians of Ageless Wisdom were able to make the teaching accessible to more people. In our time there is the Internet. Thus numerous people worldwide can gain 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.

About the Hermetic Academy

The Hermetic Academy was founded by Senator h.c. Dr. Dr. h.c. Elias Rubenstein in order to teach and preserve the ageless wisdom of hermeticism. Study, meditation and ritual illustrate the three pillars of the Hermetic Academy.

The term “hermeticism” stems from Hermes. In Greek mythology, Hermes is the mediator between mind and matter. For millennia, the wisdom tradition of hermeticism has preserved tested and verified tools for the spiritual development of mankind. Self-knowledge helps us to achieve a greater understanding of life, expanding our perception of the opportunities life holds for us and our ability to respond to them. The greatest secrets are available to those who are prepared to receive them.
