Perry Marshall on Evolution 2.0

1/15/2018
More
What if the two sides of the evolution debate are both wrong and right? Groundbreaking scholarship supports that the world wasn’t created in a few days, but it also demonstrates that evolution is a dynamic system that is not random or accidental. The forces that shape nature show design — with changes that are targeted, adaptive, and aware. We explore the next evolution of the Theory of Evolution, much of the data already established and peered-reviewed (and often suppressed by both...

Danny Nemu on Ayahuasca and Other Spiritual Drugs (Ancient & Modern)

1/5/2018
More
Ready to get higher for this early year? We explore the traditions and history of modern shamanistic sects that employ Ayahuasca and other entheogens. This exploration includes the darker aspect of psychedelics including MKUltra and other CIA shenanigans. Then we go back in time to understand how ancient Jews, Pagans, and even Gnostics leveraged psychedelics for higher experiences – and how orthodox forces brought down the hammer on these mystic rituals. Lastly, we sojourn to the Book of...

Gordon White on A Gnostic & Magic Review of 2017 (and Predictions for 2018)

12/27/2017

2017 has been a watershed year of shifting realities and the oppression of human consciousness by Archons. We deconstruct this year from a Magical and Gnostic perspective, exposing the machinations of the rulers of this age in politics, science and culture. What really is transpiring in our elite-engineered society on both metaphysical and material levels? What’s more, we predict what might happen in the apocalyptical 2018, providing the Gnosis for surviving the endgame of the Demiurge and...

Karen King, John Turner & Stevan Davies on The Secret Book of John

12/21/2017
More
A special show: three preeminent Gnostic scholars explain the Secret Book of John. Many experts claim this text is the complete Gnostic Gospel since it covers so many doctrines and myths — from the pre-creation story to the fall/redemption of Sophia; from the Demiurge in the Garden of Eden to the battle of Christ against the Archons…and so much more. Beyond deeply mining this forbidden work — from origins to theology — we compare it to other ancient writings like the Gospel of Thomas, the...

Chris Knowles on Why These are Gnostic Times

12/13/2017
More
The Gnostic nightmare seems to have come true in modern times. Humanity suffers under oppressive, surveillance, and stagnant systems, ruled by godlike overlords that stifle creativity and individuality. As some have said, it’s Philip K. Dick world. How did this happen and what can be done to break the bonds of the Archons? Our guest offers solutions and insights into dissolving the veils of the Matrix and restoring Sophia. Beyond Gnosis for the ages, we find that 2017 is indeed a year of...

Tracey Rollin on Santa Muerte & The Death Goddess Archetype

12/5/2017
More
Death welcomes everyone, just as the Holiday Season does (and you’ll find the connection between the two). Today’s greatest personification of death is Santa Muerte or “Holy Death.” This deity/saint is associated with protection and safe passage to the afterlife, as well as a patron to those marginalized in society. We explore the rituals, theology, and history of Santa Muerte, including her syncretic origins in European and Aztec lore. Even more, we study the female death goddess in many...

11/27/2017

We explore the history, doctrines, and layers of meaning of this lost gospel – dealing with the best available scholarship as well as a new, exciting translation.

Robin Robertson on Synchronicity, Archetypes, Projection & Other Jungian Concepts

11/14/2017
More
CG Jung left many tools of Gnosis behind, including the concepts of synchronicity, archetypes, and projection. We explore in depth these and other avenues of individuation — as well as how they can relate to our own lives in a modern world. We also delve into the Swiss Magician’s life and how it informed his ideas, covering his relationship with the Gnostics, Alchemists, and other esoteric movements of antiquity. It’s an in-depth exploration of a brilliant but flawed man who still informs...

Nick Reed on Gnosis in a Modern Context

11/6/2017
More
Gnosis was an ancient spiritual tech that even the early orthodox church coveted. Then it became too dangerous to ruling powers for its ability to instill freedom and individuality. Can Gnosis translate to a modern context and assist the awakening of people in today’s frenetic yet shallow culture? We explore the incredible and timeless gifts of this special “knowing” — and how such concepts as the Archons, Initiation, Pleroma, Wisdom, and others are just as relevant today if viewed through...

We celebrate with the unique Gnostic approach to several paranormal issues, full of data and experience. Is it possible to reconcile such phenomena as alien encounters with Gnostic notions like the Archons? Are apparitions manifestations of the Pleroma or some infernal realms? Even more, our roundtable of guests discusses their stories of alien encounters and magical living, granting sober...

Danielle Dulsky on Liberating the Witch Within

10/19/2017
More
What is a witch and what is a witch in the context of modern culture? Who is the Divine Feminine and is she returning to a world burning with hostile solar forces? We answer these charged questions and go deep into understanding how everyone can unleash their inner witch with the right contemplation, attitude, and magical living.

Do you have Gnostic tendencies? You probably ought to have more than tendencies to survive these Philip K. Dick times. For this, our guest discusses his new book, a collection of exceptional articles dealing with ancient and modern Gnosticism, and all manner of esoterica, from over 15 years of research. We mine this work for useful and startling insights — including novel views on the Gospel of Philip and Thomas, Gnostic texts possibly written by women, the Gospel of Barnabas, empathy in...

David Parry on the Return of Valentinus & Gnostic Priesthood

9/14/2017
More
In esoteric circles, Valentinus is considered as one of the great mystics and thinkers of early Christian history — even if his Gnostic ideas would later brand him a heretic by the nascent orthodox church. Yet his theologies are gradually being embraced today in the halls of mainstream churches, even by some of the most rigid Catholic orders. We welcome the return of Valentinus, from his transcendent philosophy to his meditative rituals, more needed than ever in a civilization losing hope...

This exploration includes legends, gospels, and apocryphal works like the Gnostic texts, as well as Mary’s pagan aspects of Isis and other goddesses. Not least, we understand her impact on the...

Jozef Richards, Sean Fracek and Robert Price on Batman & Jesus (and Holy Fable!)

8/22/2017

Our gods, those fonts of inspiration and entertainment, these days manifest as comic book heroes. Actually, many comic book heroes are directly based on ancient deities, rebooted to enlighten western culture. In a two-part episode, we delve into these themes and other relevant theological/cultural themes. In our first half, the minds behind the upcoming and exciting documentary, Batman & Jesus, connect past and present dying and rising godmen (and of course share about the movie itself!)....
