The Oracle of Delphi – Know Thyself

“Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you’ll see the way to fly.” - Richard Bach I was watching a tv documentary last night by Michael Scott about the oracle at Delphi (link for UK readers http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00w4jtx ) … Continue reading The Oracle of Delphi – Know Thyself

Integrating your Light and Dark Nature

I love this blog by Sen; it's well worth poking around! I have found it useful and helpful in many ways. I can never say I agree 100% with everything that's written, but more often than not, I agree with what Sen posts and it reflects my own way of thinking. This one from early … Continue reading Integrating your Light and Dark Nature

Among Bookults gems are The Martinist initiation courses, Franz Bardons initiation into Hermetics and perhaps most difficult to come by Jean Dubuis Alchemical Correspondence courses. Utterly invaluable.
