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...

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!)....

Patrice Chaplin on the Holy Grail & Mystic Portals Part 2

In our first part, the relative of Charlie Chaplin and a famous artist on her own right shared her mystic adventures in the Spanish city of Girona. This is a place where Kabbalists and other esoteric groups have guarded an arcane secret for thousands of years. Dan Brown and the other Grail hunters got it all wrong — the Holy Grail was never a cup or a woman, but a world chakra, a portal into the other dimensions that can make a human divine. Rennes-le-Chateau in Southern France was but a...

Steve Seven on Archetypes & The Collective Unconscious

6/20/2017
More
Archetypes are a popular but ultimately misunderstood concept in Occultism and Western Esoterica. Even Carl Jung missed the mark when it came to archetypes and their liberating power.

These insights lead us on the sacred and profane pathways into the collective...

Darren Lorente Bull on Spiritual Freemasonry

5/21/2017
More
The membership and impact of Freemasonry seem to dwindle. An overlooked form of Freemasonry might be the answer to those seeking an experience over networking, introspection over materialism. This Freemasonry allows women into its ranks and fully embraces the mystic sensibilities of old secret societies and the mystery religions. We understand the mostly untold story of these liberal Freemasons, Le Droit Humain, from their origins in the 19th century to their modern tenets that draw from...
