Tomorrow's the launch of the Black Work course. If you've signed up, please send me the time and location of your birth for creating the Genius name.

The course sign-up site is located at this link.

I'd write up a bunch of salesey stuff, but it's been a long day after a long night, and I'm wiped out. I'll repost the outline of the course below, but that's about all I can muster at the moment.

I've broken up the Black Work Course into three phases (eliminating the pretentious names cause it's too much like an Order, and I got good advice about that idea that I'm taking for once). This is still a tentative outline, because there's more I want to cram in there somewhere. I can't seem to think of everything just yet, but this is the minimum of what I plan to cover*:

  • You have Cleansed me with Hyssop, Oh Lord: Banishing and Cleansing Rites
  • The Art of Contemplation
  • Self Assessment: Whoever therefore shall know himself...
  • In the Beginning: The Creation of the World
  • First Father, Nous, Logos, Workman, Governors, Man
  • Spheres of Emanation
  • The Emerald Tablet: Map of the Great Work
  • Meet the Family: Dad and the Uncle-Aunts
  • Where are you from?

  • Chain of Manifestation
  • Genii Loci
  • Meet the Family: Mom? Is that you? And you had kids!?
  • What are you?
