Orphic Platonism is a Group for those who follow or wish to explore the liberative philosophies and practices of the ancient Hellenized world. This would include the Mysteries, Orphism, Pythagoreanism, Platonic thought, Hermeticism, NeoPlatonism, and Theurgy.
This Group is for discussion, but primarily for discussion as proximate to practice. In other words, our focus is less upon an exhaustive discussion of the fine points of philosophy than upon the application of philosophy. Since many Western esoteric practices were lost over time, it should be no surprise if there is a good deal of discussion of practices from other parts of the globe.
Our goal ranges from HOMOIOSIS THEOI, a term from Plato, found in the Theaetetus which means “Likeness to God” :
to its most bold expression:
“Our concern is not to be free of sins. It is to become God.”
