Hermeticism embraces the art of becoming, the art of transformation of human life and consciousness. "Christian Hermeticists listen to the beating of the heart of the spiritual life of humanity. They cannot do otherwise than live as guardians of the life and communal soul of religion, science and art" (Meditations on the Tarot: A Journey Into Christian Hermeticism, first letter).
The term Hermeticism refers to the spiritual tradition inaugurated by the ancient Egyptian initiate Hermes Trismegistus, credited with writing the Emerald Table. The Emerald Table gives a concise summary of the ancient world view of the agent or catalyst of growth and evolution. A summary of the medieval world view of the agent of growth and evolution is portrayed in the Major Arcana of the Tarot, which developed into an entire school of spiritual exercises. As a next manifestation in this lineage, Christian Hermeticism represents a third step in the evolutionary spiral of the Hermetic tradition. Written in the latter part of the 20th century, Meditations on the Tarot is the fruit of an anonymous author's meditations and spiritual experiences arising through a unique fusion of Christianity and the Hermetic tradition.
This initiatory work comprises letters devoted to the universal, archetypal symbols of the Major Arcana of the Tarot. Its teaching consists of practical spiritual exercises leading to an awakening of deeper layers of the human soul and revealing profound spiritual truths. Within this extraordinary book, the mystery of the Divine Feminine Trinity and that of the luminous Holy Trinity were first revealed, making this work a cornerstone of the new Sophianic impulse.

Dear Friends of Sophia and the Sophia Foundation,
Thank you for embracing a Sophianic vision for humanity. While we each carry this vision in our own unique way, we share a rich commonality–– an inclusiveness for all spiritual traditions, an active caring for the earth and an intention toward agape or spiritual self-less love, as the ground for living. We are very blessed to be a community of open-minded, dedicated friends in Sophia.
