abrahadabra curriculum 2018 – sign up opens in january!


Below at the end of this announcement is a very short excerpt from the 1-1 module (one of seven modules/packets for the first year, accompanying nine books) More info is available in our Discord channel, listed below, or, on abrahadabra.com.
       This module, (1-1 AI Curric Welcome and Intro, Module I,) is only the “guide”to the other, more in-depth modules, so, it’s a summary, basically, of what we will be going through for the first 3 months. There is an enormous amount of written documentation for each reading assignment within the other modules, so it is a very intensive course. Third year students will be required to travel to The Abrahadabra Institute to pass some of the coursework and undergo initiation.  
      Please note, you must be a member of The Abrahadabra Institute, in good standing, to apply for this coursework. Registration opens in January. 
      You will be required to acquire your own textbooks. Some of them we can get at a discount from Princeton, and some are pretty cheap, digitally, while two are rather pricy. If you want all paper copies in great condition, the cost will run about $200, but most of that is two rare printings by Regardie and Crowley we’re trying to source inexpensively as we can, as the copyright is up in December for one of the pricier of the two.

Because it is legal, I am willing to create a PDF of it and hand it out for free, which means the book list would be more like $125, without any discounts from Princeton University Press or other publishers which could be very generous depending on how many people want to order new copies through us. 

Members can review the textbook list on the forums here: http://abrahadabra.freeforums.net/thread/346/textbook-list-year-2018?page=1&scrollTo=1165

Goals

By the end of March, you should be able to build a hexagram using the method unique to The Abrahadabra Institute. You will also understand how to look up the hexagram once cast and analyze moving lines as well as rulers, and comprehend the overall meaning of the hexagram in synergy with your life circumstances.
      You will become familiarized with The Great Mystery, or Tai Hsuan Ching. You will memorize the basic traits of Yin, Yang and Jen by the end of the month. You will become familiarized with the Kama Sutra. You will become familiarized with the Qabbalistic Sephiroth, with the primary goal of memorizing the colors, names and placement of the individual Sephira on the Tree of Life by the end of the year.
      You will set up a permanent altar. You will begin to learn how to perform the TwinStar scrying meditation, using your magickal mirror. You will begin learning about and analyzing the work of Aleister Crowley, via his top student, Israel Regardie.
      It’s important that you cover the modules in the order given here, otherwise you’ll be missing important interlocking data that will allow you to smoothly progress.
      You’ll need to check in at least once a month on the forums under the Abrahadabra Academy section so we know you’re doing okay and not struggling with anything. You will be given posting assignments each month, but you can post as much as you like pertaining to the information in your modules. If you do have issues with anything you should contact us immediately. Below is our contact information:

Unpack everything and hang up the infochart poster (Labelled Adam Kadmon Tree with Four Elemental Worlds) where you practice or study. If this is not in the same place, hang it in the place where you study. Keep your books and supplies together in one place, preferably separate from other books on their own shelf, table, or in a container. This ritualistic pattern will set the tone for the years to come in which the benefits of ritual action is experienced firsthand, as underlined by Confucius, with externalized actions becoming internalized over time.
      Read the Introduction and March entry for Tetragrammaton 01 Basics (Bigrammaton) module I first. The Lo Shu, which the I Ching is based on, sets the stage for the work to follow. Follow any instructions presented. MAKE SURE you know the Lo Shu diagram and the elemental properties of Bigrams before beginning on the Trigrammaton module. If you need help, post on the forums, call, or email your instructor. Read the Introduction and March entry for Tetragrammaton 02 Advanced, first and follow all instructions at your own pace.
       Read rest of the modules in any order, but leave the Tantra module for last, as there are prerequisites in the other modules which may be useful. Follow any instructions presented. Try to familiarize yourself fairly well with the Sephiroth, (Tree of Life,) before you begin on the Tantra module. Some people will have already, or will be able to memorize the colors, names and locations of the Sephira within the first month, and this is desirable, however, if impossible due to personal time constraints it can be delayed until the end of the year. Don’t be discouraged if you can’t memorize them immediately, not everyone, even experienced occultists, have had time to dabble in Qabbalah, in addition to their other studies.

April

Goals

Become capable of performing a simple tarot reading for yourself and look up the card meanings online. You will be able to find the meaning of the different components of the card.
      Learn about the three aims of life espoused by Vatsyayana, PhD, and contemplate how you might integrate them into your own way of life. Begin learning about the vast history and foundational elements of the I Ching. Become acquainted with the concept of guru in the Eastern sense and the 729. Become introduced to the 81 Shou, and acquainted with the ternary and binary systems. Become familiar with the first chapter of the Book of the Law.

Instructions

Read through each of the packets individually and follow the instructions for the month. You may approach the packets in any order you wish, this month.

May

Goals

Continue your work with the I Ching, casting and reading a hexagram daily. Familiarize yourself with the history and implications of the I Ching that pertain directly to future Mutational Alchemy practice, such as the concept of Multiplicity from Nothing, as well as the idea that Hexagrams symbolize a forcefield. Examine the nature of a successful lover, their talents and abilities, and nature of Mankind’s sexuality itself. Become even more familiar with the concept of the 729 and its importance to Mutational Alchemy. Become introduced to the concept of interaction with other dimensional worlds, from the point of view of various cultures. Explore the initial underlying precepts of the concept of “raising the foundation”

Instructions

Start with Tetragrammaton 01 Basics, then Hermeticism paying special attention to the coordinates and attributes of Yesod and Da’ath on the Tree of Life, then Tantra. After this, study the Tetragrammaton Advanced module and finally, Hierophantic studies.

June

Goals

the periodic table of alchemy and wizardry

      There is a style of thinking in the occult today that I would like to see corrected. Occultists seem to be obsessed with irrelevant things, such as how much a book costs, how old a set of data is, (the more ancient the better) where that person comes from, who rubs shoulders with who.
      I ran into this problem recently with someone who considered any metal other than steel, titanium, silver or gold to be useless as ritual jewelry. Pewter was completely out of the question, he said, because it was “cheap!” Most people know that pewter has an ancient and venerable reputation, both as a material of the wealthy, like aluminum, but that each metal has its place in witchcraft and ceremonial magick in turn. Pewter especially has an important connection to the Star Goddess, Nuit, which I will explain here, presently.
      Opinions, in and of themselves, have no bearing or relevance to the work we do here at The Abrahadabra Institute. Older occult data is no more authentic and useful than solid new research, just as old scientific theory is not necessarily more useful than the latest lab results that conflict with older theories. Occultists who indulge in these vain and shallow preoccupations, seem to be of the opinion that our body of knowledge is frozen in time, ready to be discovered by anyone willing to pay $500 for the (limited edition) secrets of mystical enlightenment.
      Most of the greatest knowledge in the occult can be acquired from a dozen books, all modestly priced and sometimes, sadly, out of print, due to lack of interest, such as the Tai Hsuan Ching translated by Derek Walters. Nobody has yet achieved the goals set forth in many of alchemy’s greatest workings, including myself. These goals of the Great Work are all out there waiting to be accomplished by anyone with the motivation and dedication to attempt them. The byproduct of the struggle, even if they are not achieved, is a very high and valuable class of gnosis. These operations are not widely known, but if they had ever been achieved, the world would be completely different than it is now. This is how we know that they have not yet been accomplished. The results of these operations are theoretical game changers. To figure out how to succeed here, we need to be willing to do the work, just as our species, via one or another intrepid explorer, found the will to work hard to invent the steam engine, the electric light bulb or the space rocket, for example. Our area of study is underfunded and ignored, but so what? Many of technology’s greatest fields of study were completely off the map when some intrepid explorer or inventor decided to throw their life and energy at it. [Continue Reading…]

youtube channels worth subbing to: awaken with jp

Have you been verbally assaulted by vegan social terrorists? Do you, your family or friends have an irrational fixation on being normal? Do you find yourself fleeing in terror from politically correct yoga instructors and their groupies? If so you should find JP Sears’ channel, Awaken with JP (soon to be relaunched under a new name) and his Ultra Spiritual comedy series pretty damned funny and useful. While much of his content is filled with spoof materials, even the spoofs reveal some pretty important psychological advice and wisdom. 
      Recently he performed a talk at at TEDx CardiffbytheSea that certainly addresses some of the most important issues and topography of purpose facing baby universes, or stars, (meaning you) today. 

“What if you found out your weirdness is a gluten-free bread trail that always leads you to you; To your authentic self?” – JP Sears

People seem to be very constipated about being themselves. Instead of being funny, they settle for vicariously living through other people’s levity. I see this all the time in pinched people who seem to be obsessed with me and my fully embraced weirdness. His advice to people to embrace the discomfort associated with weirdness goes the distance, where platitudes, like just “be yourself,” seem to fall short of what people actually need to hear. 
      The self-realization instinct, he says, opposed to the self-preservation instinct, says, “Go towards that pain – because there’s meaning in that, there’s purpose, and by the way, there’s you. You’re on the other side because you’re the one who generated that pain.” One of the challenges that seems to hold people back, year after year, with Mutational Alchemy realization in particular, is the failure to overcome these aversions to the pain of facing reality – facing one’s unique self identity. 
      The absolute uniqueness of every universe is both essential and immovable. Everything the data is telling us at very high altitudes is that we only exist because we are different from every other star, and should calculate our own orbits per our Will. Baphomet 729 even goes out of his way to point this out. “I admit that my visions can never mean to other men as much as they do to me. I do not regret this. All I ask is that my results should convince seekers after truth that there is beyond doubt something worth while seeking, attainable by methods more or less like mine. I do not want to father a flock, to be the fetish of fools and fanatics, or the founder of a faith whose followers are content to echo my opinions. I want each man to cut his own way through the jungle.” If we cannot begin to overcome that difficulty, the pain will not only continue, it will be greatly extended. 
       The rest of his therapy and advice videos are situational but interesting, even if they don’t apply to one’s own situation. Finally his deadpan comedy routines hilariously encapsulate every day holier-than-thou dietary or spiritual practices, and can be very helpful in helping you deal with your co-worker vegan fascist or locker room “paleo bro” lunkhead. No spiritual trend escapes its roasting, from Da Vinci code fans to Flat-earthers, as seen below.

Yantra and its Significance in Tantra – Part I by Kaulantak Peeth Nepal

Above geometrical diagram is the SRI YANTRA. It is the most famous, revered and most selling yantra in the markets. It is the geometrical diagram of Goddess Lalita Tripura Sundari. It is believed that worshiping the yantra would bring prosperity, wealth and abundance to the worshipper.

Now, the question arises, “How can the geometrical diagram called yantra represent the deity?”. What are the bases for it?. Do a deity possess two different yantras? If a deity has two yantras, how is it possible?, “Can a deity have many yantras as their representation?

To answer the above, let me explain some basis of yantra. ” Continue Reading———–>
