Theurgy and the Secret Doctrine – The Seven Sacred Vowels
In the Secret Doctrine and woven through the Ancient Wisdom, are references to the seven thunders and the seven vowels. While volumes can be written on the meaning of “seven” itself – the seven planets, the seven Rishi, seven rays, etc., there are elements of the seven vowels that appear repeated across different cultures and wisdom traditions. In the Secret Doctrine, H.P. Blavatsky even gives us a sacred seven vowel word as well as hints for its use.
In this talk, we will explore how the seven vowels appear across Theosophical, Greek, and Gnostic traditions. Here they serve not only language and gematria, but also in theurgy as practiced by the Greeks and Gnostics. We will also have an opportunity to practice some basic intonations of the vowels and sacred vowel-words and how they can be easily incorporated into one’s daily practice.
