Michael Ireland is passionate about studying the esoteric traditions of antiquity and looks forward to sharing her knowledge with others interested in learning about the trajectory of ancient spirituality to the “New Thought” philosophy of modern times. Watch this page for upcoming online seminars, including an exciting new offering called What the Ancients Knew.
This workshop series (designed especially for mediums, psychics, and healers) will be broken down into a six half-day seminars. First, we’ll delve into the arcane philosophical traditions of ancient times and cover the “grandfathers” of the modern New Thought movement, Pythagoras of Samos and Hermes Trismegistus. Then we’ll look at the early concept of the “vehicle of the soul” in the Chaldean Oracles. We’ll move from the “two Julians” of Chaldea to the early traditions of interfacing with the spirit world with the last pagan emperor, Julian the Apostate. After that, we’ll jump into an exciting class called Seers, Sages, and Sibyls (in which we meet the Pythia at Delphi and the Sibyls of antiquity). Then we’ll look at Mystics and Madmen: the nether-worldly visions of Jacob Boehme, Emanuel Swedenborg, and Paracelsus. And finally, we’ll examine the grandmother of the modern “New Age Movement” ... Madame Helena Blavatsky and the Theosophical Tradition.
This exciting series of seminars will examine modern beliefs and juxtapose them against ancient truths. For example:
Fact or fiction? The Pythia of Delphi, crowned as the ancestor of the modern medium, was a government-appointed agent with limited psychic powers, yet the ancient Greek world was shaped by her predictions.
Fact or fiction? Helena Blavatsky, the great psychic medium, may have been a charlatan.
Fact or fiction? One reason we live in a Christian-based society today is that the last pagan emperor, Julian the Apostate, failed to wear his protective shield into battle.
Fact or fiction? There were other contenders in the ancient world for the title “Son of God.” One of these, Apollonius of Tyana, a wandering mystic, performed many of the same miracles as Jesus.
We’re going to challenge some myths and reveal the truth about these historical figures – and what you learn may surprise you. I hope you’ll join me for this journey into the origins of mediumship, psychic phenomena, and otherworldly communication.
Other seminars soon to be available include an expanded How to Start a Mind-Body-Spirit Business seminar.
