Hermeticism with Erik & Sam Part I

One word which gets used everywhere and almost as a substitute for Esoteric Thought and Philosophy- is Hermeticism. But what exactly is it and how did it come about? Is it a religion? A Philosophy? What was it all about? Our understanding of Hermeticism through time has changed vastly, much of the obscurity has been cleared up only within the last 100 years. In this, the first of a Two-Part series, I am joined by Erik Arneson and Sam Block to get to the bottom of the birth of Hermeticism and what it meant as it was originally conceived.

Rev. Erik Arneson is a Magician, Hermeticist and Podcaster extraordinaire. His Podcast Arnemancy is one of my favourite Occult Podcasts around these days. You won’t find many people out there better and kinder than Erik. Be sure to support Erik through Patreon if you dig what he does- I am a proud patron and love all the magical hi-jinx that Erik gets up to.

Sam Block, otherwise known as Polyphanes, has written extensively about nearly every aspect of his magical world. His Blog The Digital Ambler is an inexhaustible font of excellent information for not only Hermeticsm but Magic as well. If you would like to show some support for Sam, hit him up on Ko-fi or even better- Grab one of his Books!

Both Erik and Sam are Moderators of the Hermetic Agora Discord Server. Beyond a doubt, Hermetic Agora is the best place for finding out more about Hermeticism as well as ask a question or two. I also lurk about on the server and am constantly intrigued and surprised by what gets discussed there. Join now, Read the rules and have fun!
