All the secrets are available for those who know where and how to look. Therefore I personally recommend not joining any "schools", for it will
inevitable condition you into their dogma.
Take a look for Jiddu Krishnamurti for example. He was supposed to be the "world teacher" according to Theosophical Society, Annie Besant and
Leadbeater. In his autobiography Krishnamurti states that all these schools are vain, and in fact harmful. For instance, he himself was born in
Brahmic family that was highly religious. During that time he experienced visions of Krishna and other deities, which according to him, was
indoctrinated into his mind. Then the Theosophical Society stepped in and adopted Krishnamurti with the permission of his parents. During the time
with TS, Krishnamurti experienced visions according to theosophical dogma. So he concluded that these visions were not truthful, but based on the
indoctrination posed by various relgions.
A christian will have experiences with God, Jesus or Satan, Hindu will encounter the particular deities of Hinduism in their visions. Muslims will
encounter Allah or the Prophet. Satanist might encounter his demons or Himself.
The point of the story is, that all these visions are depending on the indoctrination which one has been conditioned. And the reason is that all these
visions are nothing but archetypal numinous messenger from the psyche of human being. They are contents of your unconsciousness, dressed in clothes of
your conscious condition.
But if you want to join those, I wouldn't object. You must do as you feel the urge. This was just my opinion, and my advice - I wish not disencourage
you in your endeavours. All I can say that the most important thing is to be vigil, whatever creed you may take, so you can objectively valuate the
experiences you might have. And remember, it is said that: "Pupil is spoiled by the master, and the master is spoiled by the pupil."
In spiritual things, no-one is master. This is because we all have unique composition, both mind and body.
