In addition to the description of the symbol systems of ritual magic, William will offer practical instruction and demonstration of four specific rites used in the regular repertoire of the Hermetic magician. Segments of each day will be devoted to a question and answer period for more in-depth inquiries.

Original Instructions teachings with Hector Gomez

Presented by the Institute of Sacred Sciences

Feb 8th, 10am - 5pm w/ lunch break

Instructor: Hector Gomez

What is Quest for Unity?

In Quest for Unity, we believe that there is wisdom in Mother Nature, and she has many virtues and lessons to teach us.  All we need is the patience and focus to receive them. 

All of us know that the time we spend in nature is good for us.  There are obvious mental and physical benefits, and we feel an emotional benefit as well.  Subtle, but unmistakable.  

The Original Instructions provide us with guidelines for how to reconnect and communicate with nature. They also give us a better understanding of our participation in the cycle of reciprocal maintenance.  

Our Message:

We too are part of nature, no more than fragile leaves, waiting for the day that we will fall and be absorbed into the earth.  The love of Mother Nature covers us like a blanket, takes away the loneliness that we feel, and gives us courage to go on. 

Mission Statement:

Hector sees an opportunity in the Circle of Life for understanding healing through the wisdom and knowledge that the natural world provides.  He does not lecture, but creates a circle where everybody’s participation is equally important.  He welcomes people from all walks of life in their search to find meaning, awareness, and service to humanity.  

Please note:

Bring personal objects or instruments that you would like to be blessed on the altar.  

Drumming and singing are part of the workshop.

Hector Gomez was raised in the Argentinian pampas and has native roots to South America, where he received the foundation of his teachings ON his life journey, he came across different ways of life. He now leads rituals and ceremonies, that were shared by his elders. Sufism and Native American ways are the practices that he embraces and inspired him to create Quest for Unity.
