Founded in 1969 by artist Bob Hieronimus, AUM was the first state-approved school of esoteric studies in America, offering classes and granting certificates in occult studies, mystic arts, religious metaphysics, and more. This pocket calendar published by the organization includes information on lecture series, affiliated community organizations, class listings, map of Savitria (the location of the school and the intentional community in which Hieronimus lived), and text analysing symbols and illustrations throughout. Hieronimus has been incredibly influential as a muralist, a scholar of United States symbolism, and is well known for his painted cars, including a VW Bus that was heavily photographed at Woodstock.
