Hermetic Philosophy is a timeless science which provides tools to assist
people in understanding themselves and their relation to the Universe.
It is a technical system of personal development based on eternal principles and since its inherent nature is practical, it is often referred to as "operative philosophy."
It is important to note that the discipline studied at the Institute for
Hermetic Philosophy bears little resemblance to what is commonly referred
to as Hermeticism. This is because true Hermeticism refers to a living
art, not a collection of facts. It cannot be simply outlined or defined,
but must be profoundly experienced and comprehended through everyday life.
Hermetic Philosophy is not a religion, political, or traditional cultural
knowledge, but a practical and profound teaching. Its study emphasizes
discovering the true meaning behind every aspect of one’s life,
including morality, consciousness, freedom, energy management, knowing
oneself, and communication with others. This approach allows one to solve
daily problems and to answer life’s most pressing questions –
not through book learning or ready-made formulas, but by using one’s
hard-won life experience. What one gains through this process can never
be taken away.
