Western Mystery School

School for Esoteric Sciences

We offer a transpersonal training, by bringing together the knowledge of the ages in a program that optimizes your life.

Temple Training

The Temple Training is an ongoing cycle of active learning classes in Transpersonal Magic. It is a program you can take part in at any time, consisting of two semesters p.a., each including five intensive full day classes plus feedback.

Transpersonal Magic Trainer

Did you ever have the notion that ‘there is more’? That state of mind, where everything suddenly makes sense? Without words a Knowing awakens, a Beauty becomes tangible and a Mystery hovers in the air …

Portal Grade

The Portal Grade are the Builders of the Temple: they have created their Inner Temple and start expanding, to become the teachers of the future. This training is for First Degree Initiatiates of the Magical Order Temple of Starlight.

Solo Magical Training

Know yourself, discover your gifts. That is the biggest challenge! The Solo Magical Training leads you, in 25 steps. Every lesson a tangible goal, a building block: study, experience, application and internalization.

Transpersonal Coaching

Everybody sometimes needs advice from a neutral expert about spiritual or psychic issues. A Transpersonal Coaching session offers insight in the possibilities to cope with psychic issues as well as those related to spiritual development.

Magical Books

Magical books are workbooks: they are filled with knowledge to be applied and exercises that need to be practiced. Magic is an art of life for the adventurous. Pursue it daily and you will benefit from its healing, life changing powers!

Temple Retreats

Every year Ina Cüsters-van Bergen organizes two Temple Retreats. These are intensive weekend events. Every Temple Retreat is unique, and covers a Hermetic theme from the Western Mystery Tradition.

Tarot Teachings

Did you know that the Tarot Cards are keys to deep mysteries? Are you aware of the fact that the Tarot reveals ancient old wisdom teachings? The cards unlock the wondrous Mysteries of Life and open doors to the Teachings of the Universe.

Transpersonal Therapy

Transpersonal Therapy consists of a series of techniques to unleash blocked energy patterns, with the help of deep imagination through symbols, metaphors and archetypes, either in pursuit of a spiritual experience, or in a psychotherapeutic setting.

FAQ & Teaching Videos

Watch videos about who we are and about Transpersonal Magic: meditations on the Magical Kabbala, lectures in Hermetic Philosophy, exercises in Deep Imagination, demonstrations of course materials. More videos are planned.

Copycats

As an author I regularly notice how other people sometimes use my texts without giving me the credits for it. In some cases complete pages are copied and pasted without naming me as the source. The copycats think they are smart but they don't realise that the energy...

The Multicolored Feathered Horus

The Mages

The temple community consists of trainees and initiates of different degrees. Initiates serve as models for every member of the group to create awareness of ideal archetypes. The functions – not the people themselves - serve as transpersonal models for development of...

Superheroes and superpowers

As I wrote earlier, the emphasis on historical research causes us to underestimate the influence of art in modern magic. Nowadays ...we regard the great myths as fantasies and children’s stories. But these great stories of the past and present are full of applied...

Window Dressing

Staring at my smartphone I surf over the internet, searching a solution for my emptiness. Reading all the tempting articles of smart marketeers, I get sooo tired! I put away my cell phone and go to bed. I am done! I pull the blankets over my head, hoping for a decent...

The Golden Veil

Today I will be working at the development of the tarotcard the Fool. The Cave of the Fool is connected to Air of the Wise. I always associate Air of the Wise to the Golden Breath. The Golden Breath is an experience; you experience it at those moments, that it is as...

TRANSPERSONAL PSYCHOLOGY

A few days ago I wrote about my vision on the role of the teacher/trainer in the Western Mystery School. But what do the trainers train? How does the trainer use the ancient legacy of Mythology, Astrology, Magic and Alchemy? And what are the results? Dion Fortune was...
