Welcome to Quareia 

a new school of magic for the 21st Century

We are a school that is open to anyone, that is free and accessible online at any time. A school that is entirely focused on teaching the most essential skills in magic, with unknown precision and depth in its materials, yet free from any specific one style or specific religious overlay: various styles and religious patterns are studied and at times worked with in depth, but there is no one creed, culture or system that forms the foundation basis of the training. It is structured like a pyramid: a wide and solid foundation that rises to a pinnacle.

Quareia, the new school of magic for the 21st century, is a concept that was born out of conversations between adepts Josephine McCarthy and Frater Acher; two European magicians with solid magical reputations in their respective fields.

The course is spread over three sections: Apprentice, Initiate, and Adept. Each section has ten modules, and each module has eight lessons. Each of the three sections is approximately five hundred thousand words: it is the most extensive, in-depth, and intelligent up to date magical course that is currently available world wide.

The modules are specifically designed to link into each other, and are not stand alone study modules. If you do not study them in sequence and do not do the practical work, you will not gain the skills and knowledge necessary to cope with and understand the adept work. Following the lessons in sequence gives you the skills and foundation to develop properly as a magician.

There are no teachers: the course is designed specifically for lone exploration, experience and study. The success of the Quareia student comes from hard work/personal application, inner contact, and the necessary study work. It is a very old way of teaching and completely side steps all of the degeneracy that magical schools can become entangled in.

Quareia teaches the skills that underpin many different forms of magic. Rather than just teaching a specific magical style, through learning the structural underlying techniques, forms and skills, and their various cultural, magical, and at times religious expressions from different cultures, the Quareia magician will be able to access any form of magic and understand it.

The methods, information and techniques in the course enable the magician to engage any form of magic and work with it appropriately with the full knowledge of how that magic works, why it works and what is behind it. It also starts to guide the magician along the mystical path, a path that reaches beyond religions and faith, and one where the adept moves into mystical union with the universe around them.

The curriculum of Quareia goes into great practical and technical depth of all magical technique, and for the most part is magical education that does not appear in any books, anywhere. This is the training that is normally conducted behind closed doors. The training is rooted in ancient magical traditions from a modern perspective, and is designed in absolute detail to ensure a complete and balanced training.

The construction and presentation of the course, and the fact that it is free and will remain free, ensures that anyone who wishes to commit the time, focus and energy to the work will be able to do it. It will not be hijacked, will not become commercial, and will not become something exclusive. It self-filters, self protects and has no alignment to any school, any lodge or any magical organization in the world: it is itself and will remain so. Various magical, mystical and religious systems are looked at, and some are worked with, so that the student learns the base mechanics from looking at a structure from within, in order to gain true understanding and skill.

No Quareia student can buy their way to adeptship, nor is previous training accepted: there are no shortcuts – everyone starts from scratch in order to build a solid and powerful magical foundation. But any mentored student that successfully completes the course, becomes an adept that is officially recognized by this school: they will become known as a properly fully trained and fully capable magical adept. The reputation of Quareia comes from the rigorous high standards of the magical work: by their fruits shall ye know them.

To get started with your training, scroll down and read the various sections below that will give you a study overview. Start with Apprentice module one lesson one and simply work your way through the course in sequence. The whole course should take a minimum of five years to complete: this is a true training of mastership in the magical arts - it is not a casual interest course.

A facebook community group for Quareia students

For people studying the course and who have worked past at least all eight lessons of the first Apprentice module there is now a closed and secret (for privacy) Facebook group for apprentice discussions and making friends.  Please do not ask to join if you are simply considering joining the course or have just started the course. Also please do not ask to join the group if you are dipping into random sections of the course, or have not started at the beginning.

The Quareia community group is for people who are seriously studying the course with a view to eventually completing the course from start to finish.

Members of the Facebook group are also offered invites to join a closed online discussion forum that is for students and workers of Quareia. This enables us to have more in - depth discussion around magical topics.

To join the Facebook group, please contact Josephine McCarthy using the contact link at the bottom of the page and put within the message your email address that is used for your FB account so that we can send you an invite. Also let us know what module you are currently studying.

How to Approach the Quareia Course

In order for the course to work properly for you, there are some things you need to keep in mind before you start.

Sequence

The course is specifically designed so that each lesson builds upon the next. If you cherry pick the lessons, they will make no sense to you and they will not work to their full magical potential, as each lesson dovetails magically into the next. In the early modules, you will find that some lessons can be done side by side, but as the course progresses, each one lays a foundation for the next lesson.

If you have already had major magical training, still don't skip over modules or lessons as they form part of an overall magical inner pattern. Instead, you will find that you only need to do a certain exercise once rather than the suggested repeats. This will help you move faster through the pattern of training.

Within the lessons are many subtle pointers, details and pertinent information. Do not skim through the lessons as you will miss the fine details woven into them: even if you feel you have already covered the subject matter, many of the lessons, even the most basic ones, have seeds within them for the later work. These seeds are not in any of my books or anyone else’s books: work carefully if you wish to be successful.

Pacing

Do not rush through the lessons. Some of the lessons have exercises within them that are energetically tough and are designed to push you, strengthen you and focus you in subtle ways. Find your own pace that works for you and treat the course like long term marathon training. This course takes years, not months.

And most important of all, enjoy yourself. There is a lot of fun and curiosity written into the course, and if you are enjoying what you do, you will learn better and the lessons will stick in your mind.

Journals and exercises

Each lesson potentially has a combination of exercises, journal keeping, computer logs, and most have experiments. When you are directed to put something into your journal, it usually refers to handwriting in a physical journal. You can also then type it into a computer file if you wish. Even if you do not wish to be mentored, the handwriting work with the journal is important, as it is a pre cursor exercise to learning how to achieve ‘contacted writing’, and is also an element in learning how to empower sigils. If you have serious hand problems, then simply use computer journals.

If you wish to be mentored through the initiate and adept section, there are some things you need to keep in mind. Acceptance for mentoring is dependent upon your work records. For this reason, follow the instructions in each lesson in regards to note taking, essay writing and other written tasks. Each module you study should have its own journal (a basic soft back exercise book will suffice), and with each entry, ensure that the lesson name and number is on the top of the page.

When you are directed to do notes, essays and projects on computer, (most of your writing work will be done on computer) do them in 'Word' for mentor submission and keep backups of your entire Quareia computer work. When you are directed to do something in your journal, it must be hand written and we must be able to read it. All of the work must be in English. We understand that English may be a second or third language for some students, and in such cases we are not concerned with grammar, just so long as we can understand and read what you are saying. When you apply for mentoring, the admissions fellow will request to see certain journals and computer files to see if you have done and understood the work.

Apprentice


Welcome to Quareia - a new school of magic for the 21st Century

Section One: The Apprentice

During the apprentice phase, the only companion on this journey for the student will be themselves. This is for a number of reasons, the biggest one being that before a magician can step into magical power, they have to first step into themselves. This can only happen by taking responsibility for oneself; learning how to self motivate, and to be able to work alone, unaided, and without a cheerleader, mummy, or daddy to hold ones hand.

 Once the apprentice has reached module six of the Apprentice section, and can demonstrate that they have indeed done the work, then email advice will be freely given, but only if it is really needed and only on rare occasions. It truly is very important that this first section is completed with the minimum of help. If the apprentice does not give up or give in, but forges ahead despite any difficulties, they will become material that can then be formed, guided and strengthened into a true Initiate. 

The news section of the website holds various posts that discuss problems and questions that have come up through feedback with students. In particular, issues with meditation have been addressed through these posts, and you may find the advice in the news section useful in your practice.
There are also various posts on my personal blog that refer directly to issues regarding Quareia training, with advice and tips on how to approach Quareia study.

Section Two: The Initiate

This section builds upon the Apprentice section and begins to weave in more skills, practice, knowledge and information for the magician in training. Instead of plunging the Initiate into the hot burning fires of magic, which used to be a bad habit of mine, this section carefully leads the aspiring magician through the next layer of magic through more practical tasks, lessons and experiments.

Through this section the magician looks in more depth into specific types of beings, cultural expressions, and techniques, and learns how to work safely with them; lessons are learned that teach the magician how to keep strong, healthy and sane while exploring in magic, and the next level of technique is studied in depth which will sit firmly on the foundations laid down in the work done throughout the first section.

Section Three: The Adept

This final section leads the magician into the advanced stages of training and equips the magician with the knowledge, skills and tools to step into the life of a true magical Adept. If it is a highly practical section, with a great deal of magical action, study, experimentation and magically triggered experiences.

Although there are many aspects of magic in these modules that are not normally written about in magical books, there are also things intentionally left out: it is the role of the teacher to lead the magician to the door, but the magician must recognise that door for themselves, and be able to step through it alone, without prior knowledge.

Every lesson is this section points to a specific ‘door’, an aspect of magic that potentially can take the magician to the very heights and depths of magical power. But it is up to the magician themselves to actually recognise these doors, to be able to step through them, recognise the room they are in and learn for themselves how to operate magically.

This is a very traditional way of teaching and potentially exposes the magician to vast, deep and powerful magical Mysteries.

The foundations laid in the Apprentice and Initiate section now become vitally important in order for the magician not only to understand the Adept level of training, but to also be able to fully engage with magic at this level safely. It becomes apparent to the student when they reach this level as to why the previous sections were so carefully constructed, and why each step was very defined, studious and contained. That foundation allows for the student, when they reach this section, to engage fully in the massive leap in the level of training: the Adept level of training is of a much higher power level in comparison to the Initiate level.
