Magical Order Temple of Starlight

Academy for Hermetic Studies

The Magical Order Temple of Starlight is a modern magical temple working in the Western Mystery Tradition where men and women who seek enlightenment, liberation and self-actualization work together in mixed lodges. We offer a cutting edge of spiritual technology that teaches the science of illumination and power. We work with techniques that create changes in consciousness in our students, that help them to activate their sources of inspiration so that they develop into experts who work from a higher vision or inspiration.

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.
