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

Continue casting […]

september newsletter

September 2017

While there were a few lost memberships from our July 29th launch – people who didn’t send me either their form or ID – most members have not only recieved their packets they’ve settled into the forums just fine, or our Discord chatroom: https://discord.gg/nwvyTWE
If anyone experiences any problems of any kind, they should contact us immediately at 360-688-1242, or, reply to this e-mail. Setting up a forum account is simple, if you havn’t already done so, make sure you get that taken care of now so you can access the members only material which is linked in this newsletter and so you can get support for your questions in a private, screened environment. 
For a few last minute comers: If you’re recieving this newsletter your membership has been accepted and your package will be in your inbox soon. 
A basic introduction to the inherent connection to the DNA strand within our own bodies and the I Ching, which is widely revered around the world and will form the cornerstone of your education at The Abrahadabra Institute, whether self-studying or if you decide to enroll in the curriculum. It’s pretty important stuff and this is a members only article. 
Chat archives from previous years have been placed in the archives, and are only available to members. The July 2013 chat is definately worth examining for new members and was re-released in August.
The decade long thread concerning the Magician and the Excorcist, Ningishzidda, has been revived using the latest data. Previous iterations of the thread included the one from Ye Olde Occult Forums and the old Abrahadabra Forums 1.0 thread. Feel free to join in the conversation if you have any questions about the Trans-Tigridian Snake Gods. 
This concise article written by m1thr0s over 10 years ago is still one of the best introductional series to Mutational Alchemy for beginners and has been re-released and moved to the members only area. This one includes an audio reading by Izi Ningishzidda to help fill in for the audiophile crowd. 

“The greatest power in the universe is love, and thus it is so rare. To me, spiritual ascension requires both undefiled wisdom, and the unity of true love to be complete in Baphomet” 

Mutational Alchemy Tarot Book Edit
Some major edits to the MAT book were the main focus in August. Both the web version and the printable Google Docs version were corrected, but only the Google Docs version has the changelog.
Just a little tidbit our members might find useful, taken from The Anatomy of the Body of Light, Volume I. 
Hungry Ghost month in Asia and Samhain are both coming up, and people never seem to know what to do in these situations. While this is not within the scope of our normal interests, and even might seem a little weird, it’s important that people know how to protect their space. With over a dozen questions on this topic on Reddit alone going unanswered, or, answered badly, the need for a simple guide to eliminating hauntings was deemed necessary.
Finally, if you missed it, the August apadana chat archives are here: 
If you’re interested in learning Mutational Alchemy, at the request of several hundred people, I finally have formulate a quick and easy answer to “Where should I start with Mutational Alchemy” in the Mutational Alchemy Starter Kit, for those of you who want something even shorter and sweeter, you can check out our good old I Ching Starter Kit in the Books and Media section of the store. All products come with support from yours truly.

memberships now open…

Memberships are now available to the world’s foremost experts on Abrahadabra and the central hub for Mutational Alchemy, the legendary ninth limb of Yoga. The chart below is a quick and dirty synopsis of what we are all about.



Annual Membership card, certificate of membership, lapel pin, mission statement premise print $32

Annual Membership + Mutational Alchemy Tarot $64

For a number of years now, those following The Abrahadabra Institute’s activities over the past 18 years have asked us for official memberships. After a tremendous amount of work having been completed, towards formulating what such a membership might look like, in order to suit the needs of persons interested, we’ve come to the conclusion that the best direction for TAI, much to our founder’s chagrin, is as an educational institution and (co-ed) fraternity – for the purposes of social fun, and thirdly as an initiation gateway into the 418 current. Anything that dares to connect itself with Abrahadabra is necessarily signing up for a rough and fast-paced ride, and we have hitched our wagon to that particular train a long, long time ago. This is certainly optional. Abrahadabra loves loners – our clan consists of the Hermits and the Magus. They don’t need a group. But the path can be lonely and we’re willing to take the heat in representing the 418 current in this world. If you want to join us, fine. If not, we still respect you just as much, fam. 
       A significant investment of time has been dedicated towards composing a seven year long (open source) curriculum, leading into Mutational Alchemy. We are using an introduction to this steep climb via the foundational elements we had identified over five years ago, and we are very pleased to announce that The Abrahadabra Institute is finally, after all these years, ready to take on the stewardship of a formal membership body.
      Almost everyone human with a pulse is welcome to join. While it’s true that we are open to just about everybody, it is not a decision to take lightly. This stuff that we study here is as real as anything, extremely potent, and we can’t be held responsible for the fallout if one joins frivolously and tries to make Abrahadabra some kind of joke or subject to one’s Will.  Below is a link to the comprehensive guide to membership. also on the menu to the left “join TAI.”

The Alchemical Word of Perfection by m1thr0s 729

The above link will answer most pressing questions, but it doesn’t cover all of them. Those who wish to ask questions of us directly should visit the public area of the forums, here: http://abrahadabra.freeforums.net/board/64/pubbies-live and create a new thread or post in the existing Q & A.
      This organization is designed to endure for at least a thousand years, depending on circumstances surrounding success towards the Aeon of Hrumachis as defined by Liber al vel Legis. If that sounds like something you are interested in building, we are open to studious, intelligent, patient, dedicated and self-controlled individuals.

m1thr0s, Magister Ouroboros 729, founder of The Abrahadabra Institute and creator of Mutational Alchemy the so-called *Ninth Limb of Yoga*

      Any post about opening up memberships to The Abrahadabra Institute would be incomplete without mentioning our founder, who died on December 26th 2016, and who was pushing hard to stay alive for as long as it took to stabilize this body of work and TAI itself, with the intention that I could continue where he left off. The future is going to be a lot of fun here at TAI and you’re not going to want to miss it.
