Binding: Hardcover

Book ID: 11657, 11657

Description

NY: Schocken 1970 (1954), second printing, cloth-backed boards, 213pp, 21 B&W photographs, a few of which are full-page, including portrait frontispiece, good inexpensive copy. A classic narrative by these realized arcadian-utopian visionaries. After his long and noble life Scott, still working everyday at his farm and in good health starved himself when he turned 100 because he was loosing his sight, Helen made it to 91. She grew up in a large Theosophist household and had been with Krishnamurti when he had his "enlightenment" experience under the pepper tree. She was an accomplished musician, and a vegetarian/vegan like her more famous anarchist economist husband. Scott was an anti-war activist during WWI and prodigious author-scholar. Together they almost single-handedly birthed the back-to-the-land movement of the early 1960's. Their lives are a life-long inspiration to me and I have read this book more than a few times. They were also book collectors and had a fantastic home library, and their writings are sprinkled with stories of interesting reading experiences.

His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.

Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...

"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us. He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with that all-important business contact."

Churton, Tobias
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

In November 1949, architect Frank Lloyd Wright announced the death of "the greatest man in the world," yet few knew who he was talking about. Enigmatic, misunderstood, declared a charlatan, and recently dubbed "the Rasputin who inspired Mary Poppins," Gurdjieff's life has become a legend. But who really was George Ivanovich Gurdjieff?

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
