Description

The two worlds of Voudon and Gnosis merged together within the unique expression of a religious community called the Monastery of the Seven Rays. Having a history that is as colourful and mysterious as the variety of individuals involved in this esoteric movement of the spirit, the Monastery stands apart from traditional expressions of monasticism in the East and in the West by existing on a physical plane, but more especially—by also being a psycho-spiritual locale, accessible to all who knock upon her celestial doors. For each Postulant of this Monastery, there is a particular work to do, a particular gnostic space to dwell within and a particular sacred injunction to fulfill for the betterment of the globe. Syzygy by Tau Palamas is one such legacy. It is simply the reflections of one student of this delightful and challenging superstructure of mind-stuff — The Monastery of the Seven Rays.

As interest in the growing fields of Voudon and Gnosticism increases, it becomes important to have works that explore these subjects from distinct angles and from diverse perspectives. From childhood, Tau Palamas has been steeped in traditional Christianity, and so this piece is coloured by that experience, exploring the differences and the deep connections between the Classical Monasticism of the Orthodox and Catholic Churches and the Gnostic and Magickal work of the Monastery of the Seven Rays. More than being a product of research, Syzygy is a result of experience and work within the Monastery. Lavish, full-colour illustrations by the author are further demonstration of the unity of both tradition and creativity within this supernatural cloister.

The hardback edition includes full colour artwork by the author, Tau Palamas. The paperback includes the same artwork in black and white. Both editions are 200 pages.
