Gnosis 06: Secret Societies. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions - REPRINT (New)
Book ID: GNO06R, GNO06R
"At present, books are widely available which contain the lion's
share of the secret teachings that one is likely to come upon in
most secret societies. Yet the lack of interest most people have
in penetrating into inner realities assures that these teachings
remain unperceived - and therefore 'secret'."

Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions

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."
