§ December 2020: This page is in revision with a new welcome talk in development. Meanwhile, I invite Visitors to peruse an overview of all the material current on release on Nemeta: Under the Banyan Tree. Some of this material for Staff only, but there is also a lot for visitors touring the groves. I realize all too well that orientation to the content you find here can be difficult. The Admin and myself are mindful of that problem and intent on seeing what to do about it. I am certain that if you have a complete overview of the unit/lessons distributed in the various Courses and Vocations, you will be more easily able to select that interest you. So be it. JLL

Welcome to the Sacred Groves

The campus of Nemeta is open for exploration to all those who happen to find it. Anyone who comes to the School can access the landing pages of all 12 Courses, the 3 Vocations, plus the landing pages of 17 The Terma and the Terton and 18 Breaking Nous. By entering a username and email address, you become a registered guest who can access the units on this page (see curriculum panel below) as well as those in Course 16 on Planetary Tantra, and you can join the PT Forum.

The banyan tree with a mother trunk that spreads horizontally and roots into more trunks is the image of the Sophianic School with its branches of learning.

The Discovery of a Lifetime


The Seven Groves of  Nemeta

1. The OPEN GROVE for Receiving Visitors
This is where you are now, reading these words. Additional to the welcome message on the portal page, which explains the program and purpose of the School, this page carries an additional message directed to newcomers, especially those who have found the School through interest in the Home Story, the Fallen Goddess Scenario.

2. The VAST GROVE of Planetary Tantra (16)
Here you find a range of material on the principles and  practices of Planetary Tantra, including autogenic practice with the Shakti Cluster, observation of the lunar cycles (Dakini shifts), interactive magic with Gaia, and much more. PT is the delivery package for The Terma of Gaia Awakening introduced on in 2008. The original content of that site has been converted to units (lessons) in Nemeta to be edited, updated, and arranged in a user-friendly presentation. There are currently 699 units/lessons in Nemeta, of which about 50 are specific to Planetary Tantra, and new units are added each month. The campus is continually under construction. Your patience is appreciated!

Planetary Tantra is rapturous immersion through desire and imagination in the dreaming power of the earth. It is a precise and intimate way of bonding with the planetary animal mother, Gaia-Sophia.

3. The FLOWERED GROVE of the Twelve Courses (1 – 12)
Here you find the spectrum of diverse topics that distinguish Nemeta as a modern Mystery School based on the Maitreya Process. Nemeta is an “educational cult” designed to restore and revive the Humanities but reframed as the Sophianic Arts and Sciences.  It does not seek to revive Gnosticism. Rather, it fosters participation in the unique living truth of Gnosis in the world today. The subject matter of the Courses is not mere content to be consumed. The Gnostic spirit that informs all these Courses is catalytic to a many-branched process of higher education. The motto of the School is “Teach as you learn.”

Note: You can access the Courses through the drop-down menu on the portal page of the School, or by scrolling down that page to seven panels including Dog Zen. Click on Courses and you get a screen with links to the Courses identified by graphic panels.

4. The DENSE GROVE of the Three Vocations (13, 14, 15)
Here you find the equivalent of post-graduate courses in a university curriculum. The Vocations differ from the Courses in the time commitment they require. They are rich and extensive training programs. 13 The Humanities is a proposed mentoring program. 14 Celestics is a vast zone of astronomical and mythopoetic lore. 15 The GNE is a reprise of the Gaian Navigation Experiment conducted between March 2011 and March 2014.

5. The HIDDEN GROVE of Dog Zen
Here you find an idiosyncratic take on Buddhism, as well as a humorous takedown of it. Dog Zen features the “Jewel Ornament of Liberation,” the Dragonfly Sutra, a mantric composition of 11 lines and 55 words. The Sutra is a tool for sharpening rigpa, the power of attention inherent to human intelligence. Dog Zen is an exercise in comic relief framed as a metacritique of Buddhist dogma and discourse. It proposes the master trope of “booth side/theatre side” for clarification of mystical experiences including satori, samadhi, and pretences of enlightenment.

What directs your attention to the productions of your mind is not a product of your mind.

6. The ENTRANCE GROVE Where The Menhir Stands
Here is where both visitors and members come to find out what’s current in the School. Usually upon entering the School you will pass the Menhir to find recent uploads. In addition to updates, The Menhir features comments and links relevant to current events, such as astronomical phenomena, notable information, or madness in the world drama. The uploads to the Menhir are archived so that you can look back in time and review the activity of the School as it unfolded in previous months. For instance, May 2019

7. The SHELTERED GROVE Where Members Gather (17, 18)
Here is where the Maine Professor confers with the staff of student-teachers who support the School materially, morally, and creatively. 17 The Terma and the Terton covers topics of intimate concern to those committed to practice and propagate Planetary Tantra. In 18 Breaking Nous members receive monthly updates on current events relevant to the Sophianic vision of life, a timeline of celestial omens, and exclusive reports on a variety of Gnostic workpoints. This grove also includes the Members Forum (Treehouse).
