Martin Faulks – The Hermetic Art of Memory

August 5 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Would you like to learn the secret magical memory methods of Giordano Bruno?
During the Renaissance, memory training methods and mnemonic techniques were used to train the mind. It was commonly believed that these methods wouldn’t just improve your memory, but your mind in general – reforming the character, bringing increased creativity, awareness, and intellectual ability.
A select few, however, were said to hold the secrets to using these methods in a far more dramatic way. Passed in secret from teacher to student, there were memory methods that were said to be able to lead to a total regeneration of the body and an upgrade to the human consciousness. But what would it be like to be an apprentice to a mystical memory master like Robert Fludd or Mnemonic Magi like Giordano Bruno?
These secrets have been unknown until recently hidden in code and never explained in plain language. But now for the first time in history a memory manual written by Giordano Bruno’s Scottish apprentice Alexander Dicsone has been translated from the Latin and published English.
In this talk memory specialist, Martin Faulks reveals the methods taught in this volume and takes you through a syllabus of Renaissance training allowing you to discover the methods that would have been taught and how they would have worked. Join us for a journey into the past and an adventure in memory that may inspire you to practice this art and gain from the benefits these methods bring.
This is an online event which will take place via Zoom on 5 August, 17.30 (London Time). To register, please use the following link: https://bit.ly/3fiTeTV
