Details:

This course is offered for those of any faith or philosophical background seeking to study a deeper understanding of Christianity according to its esoteric tradition as interpreted by the text author, and to appreciate the connections between esoteric Christianity and other traditions and the cross-fertilisation of esoteric ideas.  The course is open to people of any faith and to secular students. Its aim is to further the academic study of comparative religion and esoteric  thought, and to promote interfaith dialogue and communication. Your tutor will be someone who has studied comparative religion from an open-minded academic standpoint, and who has taught comparative religion and transpersonal psychology to clergy of various denominations. 

The course will be useful for anyone interested in comparative religion and the history of religious ideas, as well as for students of Western esotericism and the Hermetic tradition and to clergy or lay religious leaders. It is primarily academic and does not lead to membership of or ordination by any religious body.

The Hidden Teaching
The Fall
Salvation and Gnosis
The Meaning of the Second Birth
