“This year-long course, meeting monthly online, explores esoteric traditions to give a well-rounded sense of their content; their historical developments and key ideas and are placed within the broader context of the history of their day. Dr Sasha Chaitow starts in the Hellenistic period with neoplatonism, hermeticism, and gnosticism, which were reconstituted during the Renaissance, when these older currents merged with elements of kabbalah , alchemy and magic. This marked the birth of “the Western Esoteric Traditions” whose aim was raise human consciousness towards a reintegration with the divine. The course then examines these, then the esoteric movements of the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries, concluding with occulture today.
