The Department of Spiritual Arts & Technologies (DSAT) is currently in the process of transfering all of its courses from an in-person classroom format to an online video format. All courses are currently for in-person enrolment, and video resources will be added to those as they are completed for online participation and completion.
Please contact Zachary Seibert before enrolling in any courses with start dates "dependent on registration" as these courses will be run according to public interest.
If you experience any technical difficulties completing online assignments, please e-mail your materials to your instructor.
DSAT-101, 202, 203: (3 CREDITS per module, 16 SESSIONS in 3 modules) Magic is the creative synthesis of art, science, and philosophy. Opening new ways of perceiving and of being, magic is a process of integration and transformation. It is a way of changing. In the 21st century, magic is largely dismissed as an artifact of a fanciful past, calling to mind images of flying carpets, dragons, and castles in the sky. While mythology and bizarre imagery, as well as varying religious sentiments, are tangled up with our thinking around it, the theory and practice of magic can be applied directly in our own lives to great effect.
DSAT-102: (3 CREDITS, 5 WEEKS) Hermetic Philosophy is a body of Sacred Knowledge that has been passed down through the mystic and occult traditions of Humanity for thousands of years. It can be definitively traced back as far as the oldest dynasties of Egypt, though it may be much older even than this. It's name is taken from the Great Sage, Hermes Trismegistus, called the Thrice Great Hermes. Though his life story is lost to history, Hermes was so great a scholar that his philosophy influenced the whole of civilization during his lifetime. In the mythology of ancient cultures, he is as much as synonymous with the Gods of Wisdom, Magic, Writing, and all forms of Scholarship.
Hermetic Philosophy is expressed through seven core Principles, or Universal Laws. The Seven Hermetic Principles are relevant to each and every philosophy, art, and science yet developed by humanity. These Laws reflect and express the methods by which all Natural Forces act and interact. They are completely non-secular and non-denominational, in that they are applicable equally to people of all Faiths and Cultures.
Collectively, the Universal Laws of Hermes form what may be considered a Key to the Temple of Knowledge, which resides within all of us. The Master Key of Hermetic Philosophy opens the doors for people of all perspectives and world-views to live more fully in alignment with their own values, ethics, and beliefs. These teachings are for all Humanity, a rule book for the Universe, allowing you to play your own role more consciously and more presently. In attaining Knowledge of Universal Law, one is empowered to work with the Law to the benefit of themselves and others, accelerating their own evolution and helping to move us all toward Higher Planes of Being.
