Why Apply Hermetics in your Life? Hermetic Principles are Universal Principles: wisdom, knowledge, truths that transcend time and space.  The teachings of Hermes are the foundation for esoteric knowledge and the 7 Hermetic Principles are woven throughout the mystery tradition and within the path of initiation in the Modern Mystery School. To apply them in your life is to take self-responsibility, and understand your own actions and power in the world. You can build and grow meaningful and fulfilling connections with yourself, your life, and others through the deep wisdom of Hermetics.

This series of Hermetic classes are presented by Sovereign Ipsissimus Dave Lanyon, lineage holder for the Modern Mystery School, Ritual Master Teacher and author of You Are Not Perfect the Way You Areand Essential Principles for the Warrior of Light.

Sovereign Ipsissimus Dave Lanyon presents important concepts overlooked by the average individual who seeks to live a joyful life. He leads the group through engaging discussions and practical applications, so the students uncover the inherent joy that resides within themselves and the world around them.

Explore how aligning the inner world with the universal truths can lead to a deeper sense of fulfillment and joy. By integrating Hermetic wisdom into their lives, participants learn to cultivate joy as a state of being, transcending fleeting moments of happiness and embracing a sustained sense of contentment and purpose.


This class is available to all Certified Life Activation Practitioners.

The Modern Mystery School follows what is called the Hermetic path, which is a way of doing things that we know it works from thousands of years of experience. Hermetics shows us that there is a way, there is a path, and the wisdom, healing, abundance and joy of these teachings reflect in all areas of our life, in our relationship with others, and specially in the relationship with ourselves. 

In this class, Sovereign Ipsissimus Dave reveals the hidden magick that is the very path of initiation which the adept walks. Through the power and progression found available through the sacred and holy art found in the initiation process, the initiate can truly find a life of fulfilment, healing, empowerment and joy. 

Hermetic Communication of the Divine masculine and feminine

For Ritual Master Initiates who have attended How To Live A Hermetic Life.

Have you ever wondered the true source of power for how the divine masculine and feminine anchors into the physical realm? Hermetics shows us that there is a way, there is a path.  When one has a way in life, or a path to walk, correct action and goodness can follow.  This applies to all areas in life and it equally applies to how the divine masculine and feminine shows up in our daily lives. 

The balanced expressions of the masculine and feminine are not only about how they manifest into romantic relationships, they are about all relationships, partnerships, families, friendships, communities and the world as a whole.

It is often said, “communication is key” but what are the keys to communication? There are fundamental differences in how men and women express themselves and ignoring and avoiding those significant differences has led to the distortion and disbalance of how the masculine and feminine is embodied.

These profound, life-changing teachings are the Hermetic wisdom that the world needs right now to bring the healing, balance and wholeness to men and women alike.


For Ritual Master initiates who have attend Hermetic Communication of the Divine Masculine and Feminine.

This powerful relationship class focuses on not only romantic relationships, but all relationships — familial, professional, friendships. How you operate in relationship to all aspects of life matters, whether it is your relationship to a person, or your relationship to food, your home, or other things, your relationships make up the quality of your life.

All relationships begin with the self, and one’s own understanding and connection to their Individuality. Applying Hermetic principles and wisdom will support the most important relationship we have above all: the relationship with our own Selves.

This class will improve your awareness of the important aspects of interpersonal connection, sharing the knowledge, skills and insights to navigate healthier, more fulfilling relationships.

 There are prerequisites and required levels of initiation to attend these advanced trainings. Please refer to the Calendar to find the next scheduled workshop, its cost and requirements.
