Central to the Hermetic tradition is the idea of enlightenment. The text known as the Corpus Hermeticum starts with a beautiful description of Hermes himself, achieving a higher state of consciousnesses through meditation. The Hermeticists were great meditation masters, for them, Meditation was a form of sacred sleep called incubation. A practice that could lead us to a rebirth and to full expression of our higher nature.

Many traditions are named after a founder real or imaginary and Hermeticum is no exception. The texts that make up the Hermetic tradition are said to be written by an enlightened teacher called Hermes Trismegistus, but who was this mysterious author.

The texts themselves never explain and there are multiple theories put forwards as part of the tradition since those days.

The tradition of Hermeticism comes from Ancient Egypt via the Ancient Greeks. Originally the name came from a mysterious figure known as Hermês Trismegistus (Greek for Thrice-Greatest Hermes), a Græco-Egyptian form of the great Egyptian God of Wisdom and Magic.

Its teachings documented a path of enlightenment and spiritual peace through harmonisation of the elements, both in the mind and body. This was said to ultimately lead to mastery of the self and, through this, life.

About Martin

My life's work has been to learn and master the art of meditation. To do this I have practiced and studied meditation with unbroken, daily discipline for over two decades as taught in the works of Franz Bardon. However, just like Bardon himself, I have also dedicated my life to gathering what is of use from different traditions around the world - whether hidden in the Japanese mountains, Egyptian desert or with the Indian yogis.
