It was 1969, the year of the Manson family murders and the ensuing fear of "hippie cults." But that same year, another sort of family was established, a young, white-robed tribe of outlaw mystics living communally in a mansion in the Hollywood Hills and serving the likes of John Lennon, Warren Beatty, and Marlon Brando at a famous Sunset Strip vegetarian restaurant called The Source. The Source was the brainchild of Jim Baker, a former war hero, convicted felon, disciple of Sikh guru Yogi Bhajan, and health food visionary -- a man who evolved into the spiritual leader to more than one hundred apostles who followed his esoteric teachings and philosophies of natural living. "Father Yod" -- or "Yahowha" (Baker's new incarnation) -- was an outlandish figure dressed in velvet robes or all-white three-piece suits, surrounded by a coterie of devoted women. He drove a Rolls-Royce and fronted the now legendary psychedelic rock band Yahowha 13, whose original recordings are treasured by fans who consider them "one of the most righteous, kick-ass American psychedelic bands of all time." Yahowha's spectacular death off a Hawaiian cliff in 1975 was not the end of the Source Family.
This extraordinary true story is told by Isis Aquarian, one of Yahowha's still-devoted thirteen wives, who has maintained a visual, aural, and textual archive documenting the group at every stage of its existence. This heavily illustrated book also includes a full-length CD of a never-before-released performance of Yahowha 13 performing at Beverly Hills High School in 1974.
The Voynich Manuscript
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...More

W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.
Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.
In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
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. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
