The Collegium Hermeticum (C.H.) is an administrative organization which unites and manages various local bodies of Initiatory Orders, Societies and Churches in common locations. As such the Collegium Hermeticum is not an umbrella Organization, nor does it have any governing power on any of the Orders and Societies working through it. It is simply a provider of locations called Pronaoi for these Orders and their members to perform their work.
The purpose of the C.H. is to provide its seekers with an opportunity to discover and simultaneously work with multiple traditional esoteric systems. It sets a common ground of interaction for various currents and streams to manifest their teachings and egregores in an environment where the seekers can discover them, and if so inclined, explore them.
Here are some of the currents and traditions provided in the Collegium Hermeticum, as well as some of the Orders and Societies which manifest them:
The Collegium Hermeticum accepts seekers of any gender, race, religion or political affiliation on an equal basis. Applicants must be of adult age as prescribed in the country from which they apply. Correspondence membership in the C.H. is possible. The International Headquarters is bound to the location of its Head, or Emperor. The various C.H. Pronaoi are themselves bound to cities and are ruled by various Primicerii.
The cost for local membership (seekers residing within 200 km of a Pronaos) in the C.H. is $40US per month and that of correspondence membership (seekers residing beyond 200 km of a Pronaos) is $20US per month. This monthly fee grants access to any Temple, Lodge, Church, or Parish operating within any given C.H. Pronaos. This cost essentially removes all monthly or yearly dues that any of the Orders and Societies within the C.H. would normally individually charge, which makes holding several memberships in various currents much more affordable. Membership in the C.H. does not, however, negate additional Initiation fees that the individual Orders and Societies charge for their Ceremonies and private events.
The Collegium Hermeticum also provides a bi-annual magazine to its members. This magazine is printed and mailed out to all Members 2 times per year. Membership in the C.H. also gives full time access to its Pronaoi. Local members are granted access any time they wish to go. Correspondence members travelling from abroad can be lodged free of charge, at any Pronaos for the duration of their stay. This will of course facilitate any travelling for Initiations and consecrations into various currents. The Pronaoi are equipped with Ceremonial Rooms, sleeping quarters, Libraries and study halls as well as kitchens and dining areas for feasts and banquets.
