Description

It would be fitting to say of Henri Tracol, a pupil of G. I. Gurdjieff, that all through his life he called many sides of himself into action toward the "harmonious development" advocated by Gurdjieff. For this reason the talks and interviews he gave over the years are of the greatest help to other seekers of truth, or, as he would say, "aspiring seekers of truth."

Whether writing about Gurdjieff or about ancient world traditions, Tracol skillfully draws on a vast knowledge of them as well as of his own and many other cultures. He brings "archetypes" and heroes close enough for us to begin to see more clearly what they might represent for us. He tells us that help is at hand from sacred sources and understandings, and that we can penetrate closer to the source of the common essence of traditional wisdom.

This newly revised and expanded edition includes two of Tracol's earlier works -- The Taste for Things That Are True and Further Talks and Essays -- in their entirety, as well as previously unpublished material from his many visits to the United States in the 1970s and 1980s and all of his remarkable contributions to Parabola during the same period.

"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

Hamilton-Giles, Peter
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...

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?
