Know Yourself

Our classes are about self knowledge, which is the better understanding of who we are and the exploration of how we can improve our lives and develop our potential.

The Present Moment

Wisdom is discovered within us, in our own Consciousness, and this is where we begin, in the here and now, learning to live in the present moment. By means of certain techniques, practiced in our daily life, we can develop our own Consciousness and consequently discover within ourselves our innate knowledge, creativity and intelligence.

A great Master said:

“Seek first for enlightenment and everything else will be given to you as well.”

In comparison to the Essence, or Consciousness, the personality is a reflection or ‘borrowed’, whereas the Essence is all ours, unique and original. This Essence can be developed by conscious efforts, as taught in our classes. There are many qualities latent in the Essence, such as creativity, intelligence, perception, intuition etc. all of which can be developed.

We are born with our own individual consciousness. This is an aspect of our psychology that can be seen clearly in babies and young children.


Another aspect of our psychology is the personality. This forms during the first 7 years and strengthens up to the age of 21, according to life’s experiences.


The ego manifests as the personality is formed. It functions as a response to stimulus from the outside world, e.g. a sudden impatient or intolerant reaction.

Our Charitable Objective

The Hermes Trismegistus School of Self Knowledge is established to promote, advance and teach the study of philosophical ideas and their practical application in daily life, drawing on the ancient spiritual traditions found throughout man’s history.

The charity will operate in Ireland. It will endeavour to help any individual (18 years or over) in improving all aspects of their lives through the application of these philosophical ideas and practices.

This will be achieved by offering free weekly courses and classes. The courses are presented in a modern format, designed to be accessible to today’s society. The goals of the charity are to educate and raise the moral, spiritual, physical and intellectual level of its participants and the community at large.
