The Cabalistic Cube of Space is a map of consciousness that can lead to the truth about human nature, and in so doing to wholeness. Wholeness emerges from a conscious relationship to the opposites that maintain the tension of awareness. The intersecting currents of tension in the inner world limit the flow of Life Force causing fixations of energy from which human awareness arises – from which your unique nature is born and preserved. Each intricate component and movement of force is essential for the system ‘of you’ to function as a whole.
Every person is held in a web of 78 forces, each conditioned by their successive life experiences. At the start of The Work, these forces are discovered to be rough and made impure through suffering and distortions of self-expression. Successively activating the archetypal level of these forces allows one to surrender their overly personal expression and seek to restore their Objective or Universal expression.
This corrective process is described in the Emerald Tablet of Hermes, “It [you] ascends from Earth to Heaven and descends again to Earth, and receives the power of the superiors and of the inferiors…” The translation of one’s personal earthy expressions of life-force is lifted to Heaven [archetypal levels] through activation of their underlying Archetypal matrixes. When then re-expressed in one’s lived life, these qualities carry an unobstructed numinous power.
This correction is expressed in various myths such as the perfected Ashlar of Freemasonry and the Descent of the New Jerusalem – a perfect cubical city that descends from heaven illuminated by the Lamb of God. This perfected cube is hinted at in the Gospels when Yeshuah is reported to have said, “The Father and I am one.” The Father in Hebrew is AB, the Son is BEN when these two words are joined, they create the word EHBEN or [cubical] Stone. The creation of the Stone [of the Wise] is the opus of Alchemy and reported to contain all manner of healing properties.
In the spirit of the ancient Alchemical laboratories, we will conduct a series of experiments to constellate these activating, purifying and potentiating inner forces. This will be conducted in the specific esoteric sequence of the Cube of Space which we activate over a series of retreats conducted roughly every six months. The process will implement lecture, sound, color, sacred symbols [Tarot Keys] and meditation in a co-created temenos (sacred container) generated by the community of participants.
In this first retreat, we will constellate the fundamental structure of the Cube of Space and activate its boundaries. This will require prolonged periods of concentration, structured thought, harnessed imagination and openness to transformation. We provide this rare opportunity to facilitate the development of individuals who can successively carry and express essential evolutionary forces so desperately needed at this crucial time.
If you are called to the act of service, I invite you to attend.
Joseph is a recognized teacher in the tradition of Mystery School teachers, which reaches back into antiquity. His interest in esoteric spirituality became evident in his childhood. As a teenager, he was studying Theosophy, mystical Christianity, and Qabalistic texts. At eighteen, he was contacted by a group of Initiates and began his formal training in the Western Mystery Tradition. He experienced his spiritual education often as remembering. Since 1980 he has worked closely with extraordinary teachers from many traditions and has advanced the core understanding of western esoteric spiritual work. Through his study groups, retreats, workshops, and lectures, Joseph carries on the tradition of passing sacred Arcana “from mouth to ear”. Joseph is well known for his lively, challenging, intense, and humorous style of teaching. As a Jungian Analyst, he sustains a private practice in Virginia Beach, VA focusing on transformational work with individuals and co-creates This Jungian Life podcast.
