At Académie Gnostique, we take great pride in our teachers. Each is at the pinnacle of practice in their respective fields. Our teachers speak with the authority of tradition, experience, and care.
Our mission is to transmute the curiosity of anyone aspiring to the art of magic into a well informed practice. Magic is the mystery of mysteries, alive in rhetoric, art, science, and the love of wisdom. We aim to propagate and expound the mystery for all.
