What is Occultism: Study of the Occult


By Morningbird

Occultism is the study of the occult, of the hidden and most secret nature of the Universe and of the individual things within it. Occultists seek to understand and indeed manipulate reality at a level beyond the ordinary.

Occultism may encompass the study of a variety of disciplines including sorceryceremonial-magickwitchcraft, Kaballah, alchemyshamanismastrology, and various forms of divination and may also incorporate the most “accepted” sciences such as Botany, Quantum Physics, Psychology, Anthropology, Astrology.
