Brotherhood of Light Lessons: The Complete Set of 21 Courses

Front Cover

This book is a compilation of the authentic Brotherhood of Light Lessons by C. C. Zain. It contains over 5000 pages and all 23 volumes of the 21 Brotherhood of Light Course series. Divided into three branches of study: Astrology, Alchemy and Magic (which includes the tarot and kabbalah), ­there are seven courses in each branch.  Zain integrates these fields of study into a unified understanding of how a student may apply Hermetic tradition and principles to build character, attract desired events into the life and significantly increase one’s happiness, usefulness and spirituality.

Only authentic Brotherhood of Light lessons by C. C. Zain can bear the trademark of the two interlaced trines, with the name of Deity in the center and astrological symbols around the outside. 

The Brotherhood of Light is a modern-day Mystery School Tradition which offers a self-paced, home study course in Hermeticism. The goal of The Brotherhood of Light teachings is to create a world in which the dominant motivation of individuals is for Universal Welfare. That is, an ideal society that protects freedom of expression and worship, while simultaneously offering the tools by which freedom from want and fear can be achieved. We believe that this better world can be attained by becoming familiar with the facts of astrology, extra-sensory perception, directed-thinking and induced emotion, all taught in The Brotherhood of Light Lessons. The study and application of these teachings provides the aspirant with the tools to experience greater happiness, and spirituality, and to discover his or her role in God’s Great Plan.

About the author

The author, Elbert Benjamine, was born Benjamin P. Williams in Adel, Iowa, December 12, 1882. In his youth, Benjamine pursued his education in Natural History alongside delving into esoteric studies. In the spring of 1909, while attending a meeting of the Brotherhood of Light in Denver, Colorado, Elbert Benjamine was commissioned to place the teachings of that organization into contemporary language. The 21 Brotherhood of Light Lessons are the results of that directive. Benjamine moved to Los Angeles in 1915, and on November 11, 1918, The Brotherhood of Light opened its doors to the public. On November 2, 1932, the Brotherhood of Light closed its doors and incorporated as The Church of Light. Since that time, The Church of Light has maintained an organization to preserve and promote The Brotherhood of Light Teachings.
