The Hermetic Dawn: Hermetic Wisdom As A Path For Modern Seekers
In the final stages of Ancient Egypt a profoundly powerful and mysterious philosophy called Hermeticism emerged from the encounter between Greek and Egyptian cultures. Attributed to the mythical man-god Hermes Trismegistus, this occult wisdom described the limitless powers of the mind, the meaning of existence, and became a source of endless mystery and inspiration to Renaissance scholars. Now, in this compelling and intellectually vibrant evening of lost history and practical spirituality, historian and occult scholar Mitch Horowitz investigates Hermetic wisdom, explores its sources and controversies, and reveals Hermeticism’s authentic meaning and personal uses for us today. Mitch argues that the ancient philosophy of Hermes may hold exactly the keys modern people are seeking to a universalistic faith of inner development, karmic values, and personal power. Join us—and witness the new Hermetic dawn.
