THE GREAT WORK: Initiation Into The Mysteries, Vol. 2 -- The Mental Plane (59 min DVD) (New)
by Dimartini, John F
Book ID: 842841026593, 842841026593
The element of Air symbolizes the plane of mind. In Qabbalah, this part of the four-fold soul/body is called "Briah", and is symbolized by the third letter in the tetragrammatorn, or Holy formula of creation: YHVH. In this formula, the Vav signifies both the realm of all mental activity, and at the same time, that part of our four-fold soul/body that lives in this realm. The realm of Air signifies Lower Mind, as opposed to the Higher Mind symbolized by the Fire element. Lower Mind is the domain of logic, reason, and basic navigatory skills, but is not the higher aspect of the psyche that we experience as creativity, inspiration, or the noumenous. Lower Mind can be thought of as a lens that can be trained on whatever we want to manifest in our lives. It can be focused on the good, the destructive, the noble or the wasteful. The Mysteries taught that when it is focused on those highest aspects of ourselves and the universe, it is playing its part in the Great Work.
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"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."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

Deconstructing Gurdjieff: Biography of a Spiritual Magician
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Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. 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...
