NOX – a night soul-journey is an intensive one-day workshop and ritual. Within a Zikr-Circle we will explore the use of the NOX ritual as a doorway to Self Initiation, and examine the rite’s qabalah and the mythology of soul-journeys. The evening ritual provides a practicum of inner work that will be a step closer to a deeper level of experience. The NOX ritual is a unique form of magickal training, incorporating a fusion of Western Mystery Tradition techniques and Oriental Sufi practices. The NOX workshop and ritual covers the use of Sufi trance-dance and Arabic ‘zaar’ drum rhythms, blended with the practices of Thelemic Ritual Magick in the creation of sacredspace. Your trainer has more than 25 years’ practical experience in this ritual.
