I've been asked to head up an "esoteric club" . What should I lecture about?
In a couple months I will begin composing a series of 20 minute presentations with PowerPoint for a group of 10 to 15 people. Total of 9 presentations.

I was wondering what people thought

Would be good topics to discuss?

The group ranges from people who are familiar with esoterica, down to folks with little to no knowledge of that Harry Potter nonsense

So I don't want to freak anyone out, instead it needs to be coherent, and tell a story, and not assume anyone has prior background in the occult teachings

Re: I've been asked to head up an "esoteric club" . What should I lecture about?
So far I want to begin really simple, outline the etymology of the word "esoteric", then maybe a brief run down of ehatwver would be considered sacred knowledge to a few of the various civilization throughout history..

I have a pretty good idea of what I want to do but just looking for any extra feedback since well
.. there's no denying the think-tank potential of this forum.

Thank you in advance

Just a few topics I plan to cover are:

ASTRO theology
Comparative religion

Egypt, sumeria, the far east...

Gnosticism, hermetica, Helena blavatsky

Obviously want to briefly summarize platonism
Manicheism, the scithians... you know, out ancient past maybe even the minoans


Then on to middle ages stuff like alchemy and where Christianity came from.




Really hoping to not offend anyone but I figure if they are really orthodox in their beliefs they probably wouldn't want to come to the club each week.

How about you lecture on the falsities and deception of esoterism?

Why not tell the people to turn to the truth, because it's all that matters, especially right now!

Turn to Jesus while there's time.

Don't ask GLP for advice on this, most people are still trapped in the politics and TV matrix, never looked into esoteric stuff.

It's very hard to distill everything you know into one coherent syllabus.

Honestly stoked for the opportunity but need to really make every effort to not weird anyone out.

Here's what you write about.

"There is a great deception," and Esoterism is a huge part of it.


What to do now is the rescue yourselves by turning to the only real truth. Scrub mysticism from your brainwashed, demonic influenced minds and turn to the real savoir, Jesus the Son of the Living God."

End of lecture.

7 and 9 , both prime numbers. Every number from 1 to 9 is relevant in kaballah, but that should probably be further down in the series not right off the bat.

Okay, point taken, numerology for sure could be a topic. And it could intercede a lot of other topics if I plan the syllabus appropriately

blavatsky....? you gonna talk about how she plagiarized others and was a total charlatan spiritualist?

Oh you could talk about how she took the concept of Lemuria, a theory about lemur migration, and turned it into new age sci fi fan fiction where Lemurians had 6 arms, laid eggs, and had dinosaurs as pets

alchemy did not originate in the middle ages

Mithraism will need a mention as well. Both the version commonly pracriced by Roman soldiers, as well as the older, persian cult
