Solo Magical Training


Know Yourself and discover your abilities. That is the biggest challenge. The Solo Magical Training helps you in 50 steps. Every lesson is a solid learning module: study, experience, application, and internalization.

Each lesson and every subject is a building block of what will become your Inner Temple: talents unlocked, clear realizations, sharpening your inner senses, and balancing the elements.

It is your personal journey of exploration, with the Kabbalistic Tree as your roadmap and Ina Custers-van Bergen as your guide. With the help of a supervisor you travel the ‘Path of the Snake’, a journey that asks everything from you: persistence, creativity, and spirituality. And gives back even more: energy, focus, understanding, the power to be and to change.

In October a new group of students will start this online training. In groups we will guide you by written feedback and online video conferences. The Solo Magical Training is designed for an international audience and for this reason the language is ENGLISH. You can read more about this training on my website.

Start: October 19 2016 to February 22 2017
Time: Every fortnight from 9.00 – 10.00 pm CET (Central European Time = Amsterdam)
Location: Skype
Price: € 285,00 for membership of the Temple, book and supervision during one semester.

Atlantis – Temple Retreat


The mythical island of Atlantis was described by Plato. Ever since it has been an inexhaustible source of inspiration to artists and it feels like the original paradise to shamans, magicians and priests. Would you want to experience how it is like to practice their temple work, meditate and worship a few days under similar conditions? Then this is your chance to experience this yourself!

  • During this intensive temple retreat you will learn to work with Far Memory. We will – as a group – regress back to the time before the Great Flood. The time when the Temples of Sun, Moon and Stars were up and running. The time when the famous Crystal of Power was radiating its miraculous forces all over the Earth.
  • The time when Gods and Goddesses still walked the Earth. You will experience yourself what it means to become the channel through which a God or Goddess express themselves.
  • The ancient priests were taught Far Sight. You will be learn this skill by means of the Magical Mirror.
  • You will be immersed in an ongoing flow of meditation, magic and ritual.

Above all: Atlantis is that mythical place inside of you, that Inner Paradise that you will learn to find.  Once you are connected to this magical energy it will become a continuous source of inspiration, spirituality and inner power. This will truly be a life-changing experience.


For whom is this retreat?
This workshop is of interest to both beginners and advanced practitioners of applied Hermeticism and Magic. After application you will be given a choice of Godforms. You will connect to that Godform over the weekend. This gives you the opportunity to start to feel the energies and the call on the inner planes previous to the workshop.
(For full members of the temple there is an additional pre-workshop program on Friday evening.)


We have limited places, so don’t hesitate and secure your place by enrolling now:

Date + time: October 29 9.30 am (morning, afternoon and evening) and October 30 until 5 pm.

Moon Magic

bookcover_mysteryofthesea_425One of the books that instructed me the most about the Fine Art of Magic was (and still is) Dion Fortune’s Moon Magic. It has been over thirty years ago since I first read it. Every few years I reread it and always find something new in it.

Why is this book so special? I have read miles of books about the theory, the history and the philosophy of Magic. Moon Magic is special because it IS magic. You can feel the energy while reading it. The way it is written takes you right in…to the rituals instead of describing them. It takes you out of rational thinking into the magical mind in an unsurpassed way. It uses the form of a novel to explain the finesses of Magic. Rational books are excellent to sum up the theory, but you can’t use this form to transfer the real atmosphere, the real miracles, the real transformative power of Magic in action.

I practice and teach Magic for almost thirty years now and decided to follow Dion Fortune’s example to combine magical theory and magical practice and write about it in the form of a novel. I am really curious to learn from you how this novel feels for you. I decided to follow the example of the Master and wrote The Mystery of the Sea.

The story is written around a magical ritual that we use within the Temple of Starlight to charge, empower and consecrate a magical ring. The characters are all officers in that ritual. The stories of their life fade into the magical realities that they live on the Inner Planes.

For those who are curious, here is the link.

Summer school – Fundaments in Magic

In my previous newsletter I told you about this summer’s Summer School program that I have developed. These are single events that can also be visited by small groups of people. This is one of these events, which I regards as one of the building blocks of the Western Mystery Tradition:

Summer school


Fundaments in Magic

Magic is an art, a science, and a spiritual path that teaches you to create changes in consciousness with your will. By changing your consciousness your life will change; and that can give spectacular effects!

What if you would master the building blocks of Magic? Imagine how it would be to call up magical forces, to practice rituals and could make these shifts in consciousness? What would it mean in your life? What new horizons would open for you? What new possibilities would show themselves to you?

Experience how you can awaken the forces that lie dormant in you. Magic opens you for the beauty of the world around you and in you. Are you curious how it feels to work in a charged temple, to participate in the beautiful invocations and put your hearts wishes before the Gods and Angels?

Fundaments in Magic is a part of the series ‘First Steps in Magic’, and can be attended as a single one day workshop.
When you want to experience the magical world of ancient Egypt, the star magic of Babylon, the initiations of Eleusis: then don’t hesitate and enroll for this intensive one day workshop.

Date: July 16 2016
Time: Door open at 9.30, start at 10.00, end approx. 21.00
Address: Kleiweg 14-16, 3051 GR Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Price: € 75,00
