Description

“Le Grice has a gift, perhaps even a genius, for extremely clear assessments, expositions, and formulations of complex ideas -- all grounded in a deeper vision of things, which makes this clarity possible.” -- Richard Tarnas, author of The Passion of the Western Mind

“A fantastic achievement, combining complex theories from leading figures in psychology and the physical sciences. The Archetypal Cosmos is destined to be an essential element in the contemporary planetary canon.” -- Brian Swimme, California Institute of Integral Studies

The modern world is passing through a time of critical change on many levels: cultural, political, ecological, and spiritual. We are witnessing the decline and dissolution of the old order and the tumult and uncertainty of a new birth. Against this background is the urgent need for a coherent framework of meaning to guide and to lead individuals and society beyond the growing fragmentation of culture, belief, and personal identity.

Keiron Le Grice asserts that developing insights of a new cosmology can provide this framework to us discover an underlying order that shapes our life experiences. In a compelling synthesis of ideas from the seminal thinkers of depth psychology and new paradigm sciences, The Archetypal Cosmos positions the new discipline of archetypal astrology at the center of an emerging worldview that reunifies psyche and cosmos, spirituality and science, and mythology and metaphysics to enable us to see mythic gods, heroes, and themes in a new light. The author draws especially on the work of Jung, Joseph Campbell, Richard Tarnas, Fritjof Capra, David Bohm and Brian Swimme.

Heralding a “rediscovery of the gods” and passage into a new spiritual era, The Archetypal Cosmos presents a new understanding of the role of myth and archetypal principles in our lives, one that could give a cosmic perspective and deeper meaning to our personal experiences.

Keiron Le Grice is founder and coeditor of Archai: The Journal of Archetypal Cosmology. He is adjunct faculty in the Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness Postgraduate Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco. Originally from England, he currently divides his time between San Francisco and South Wales. He is married with one child.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
