Mysteria: The Ancient Mysteries and the Evolution of Consciousness (Used)

by Ulansey, David

Publisher: North Atlantic Books

Binding: Paperback

Book ID: 9781556438813, 1556438818

Description

David Ulansey's Origins of the Mithraic Mysteries won wide acclaim for its splendid scholarship and what Gnosis magazine called "an absolutely spell-binding detective story of antique lore." Ulansey returns here with another detective story, this time unearthing the once-flourishing religious movements snuffed out by the arrival of Christianity. Based on a series of lectures presented at San Francisco's prestigious Jung Institute, Mysteria employs a wealth of scholarly and investigative tools in this exploration of the role ancient mystery religions played in the evolution of Western consciousness. The book reveals how these secret cults, which centered on rituals and symbols of transformation at the deepest levels, catalyzed the formation of the individual, personal identity that became the core of the Western psyche.

Mysteria also examines the impact of the extraordinary cultural and intellectual transformations of the Hellenistic Age on consciousness and self-awareness. Individual chapters describe a rich spiritual landscape in antiquity that included the Eleusinian Mysteries, the Orphic and Pythagorean Movements, Plato and the Mysteries, the Hellenistic Revolution, Mithraic Mysteries, and Apocalypse and Gnosis.

The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies
Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

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...

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...
