Highways of the Mind
The Art and History of Pathworking.
cover image of Highways of the Mind, the Art and History of Pathworking, for sale in New Zealand

Pathworking in the Golden dawn tradition by a member of the Servants of the Light.
Pathworking is a specific kind of guided visualization exercise in which the mind is projected into a series of situations and landscapes that can be viewed on a mental screen.
Evidenced from the earliest cave paintings, the Egyptian Book of the Dead, the Bardic tradition and by the story-tellers of Ireland.
Ashcroft-Nowicki shows pathworkings to be a part of the make-up of man, pertaining to his hopes and dreams and his ability to make those dreams come true.
Used with purpose and by trained minds, the pathworking becomes a series of controlled thought patterns - and thought is the basis of creation.

The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception

Working with Eisenman - one of the experts in biblical archaeology and scholarship - Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh succeed in uncovering the story of how and why up to 75 per cent of the Dead Sea Scrolls, 800 ancient Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts hidden for some 19 centuries, still remain concealed from the world today. The authors reveal that these documents disclose a new account of the origins of Christianity and an alternative and significant version of much of the New Testament.

The Messianic Legacy

Holy Blood, Holy Grail rocked the very foundations of Christianity. Now four more years of research have uncovered more shocking material and its earthshaking consequences. What extraordinary meaning lies behind the title "King of the Jews"? Was there more than one Christ? Who really constituted Jesus' following and what were the real identities of Simon Peter and Judas Iscariot? Who now has the ancient treasure of the Temple of Jerusalem? What is the true source of today's Christian "Fundamentalism"? What links the Vatican, the CIA, the KGB, the Mafia, Freemasonry, and the Knights Templar? What is the stunning goal of the European secret society that traces its lineage back to Christ and the House of David? This book reveals the answers to these intriguing and potentially explosive questions.

Practical Magic and the Western Mystery Tradition

W.E.Butler, a devoted friend and colleague of the celebrated occultist Dion Fortune, was among those who helped build the Society of the Inner Light into the foremost Mystery School of its day, He then went on to found his own school, the Servants of the Light, which still continues under the guidance of Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki, herself an occultist and author of note and the editor of this volume. Practical Magic and the Western Tradition is a collection of previously unpublished articles, training papers and lectures covering many aspects of practical magic in the context of western occultism that show W.E.Butler not only as a leading figure in the magical tradition of the West, but also as one of its greatest teachers. Subjects covered include: What makes an occultist; Ritual training; Inner Plane contacts; Telesmatic images; Words of power.

CICERO edited by Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero 
The Golden Dawn Journal, book 3: The Art of Hermes

Hermes Trismegistus is the god of wisdom of the Graeco-Egyptian philosophers who lived in Egypt in the early centuries of the Christian era. He is linked with alchemy, medicine, magic and the mysteries. All secret school and orders in the West that claim an occult tradition (such as Freemasonry) may be loosely linked with Hermes. The contributors to this volume trace the course of the Hermetic tradition from ancient Egypt, through Greek philosophy and the Greek Mystery religions, Gnosticism, Neoplatonism and the Kabbalah, down to the modern occult revival and the Golden Dawn.

EVOLA Julius  
The Path of Cinnabar : An Intellectual Autobiography

Julius Evola was one of Italy's most renowned Dadaist artists, an Idealist philosopher, critic of politics and Fascism, a 'mystic' and an anti-modernist. A scholar of world religions, Evola saw each of them as no more than stops along the path to life's true goal: the realisation of oneself as a truly absolute and free individual living one's life in accordance with the eternal doctrines of the Primordial Tradition. Much more than an autobiography, The Path of Cinnabar in describing the course of Evola's life illuminates how the traditionally-oriented individual might avoid the many pitfalls awaiting him in the modern world. More a record of Evola's thought process than a recitation of biographical facts, one will here find the distilled essence of a lifetime spent in pursuit of wisdom.

Symbols and Teachings of the Royal Art

This important survey of alchemical symbols and doctrines sets forth the mysterious worldview and teachings of the practitioners of the "royal art." It demonstrates the singularity of subject matter that lies behind the words of all adepts in all ages, showing how alchemy is nothing less than a universal secret science of human and natural transformation. First published in 1931 this is the first English translation. Draws from a host of sources in the Western esoteric tradition; works on theurgy, magic, and gnosticism from neoplatonic, Arab, and medieval sources.

KNIGHT Christopher and Robert Lomas 
The Second Messiah
Templars, the Turin Shroud and the Great Secret of Freemasonry

The truth behind the Turin Shroud is a story of pride, greed, power-lust and suffering. Prophesised that the Messiah would return shortly after 1230 e.v. Jacques de Molay was born in 1244, became a Templar in 1265 and Grand Master in 1297; the Templars regarded themselves as the guardians of the secret teachings of Jesus. In 1307 Molay was arrested at the instigation of the Pope, who was alarmed at the spread of this influence - and was crucified. Using the latest scientific techniques, the authors prove that the shroud Molay was wrapped in is the one now known as the Turin Shroud.

The Seventh Sword
Psychic Quest for King Arthur's Sword

"In 1979 the author and a psychic colleague went to a secluded pool in the heart of England. Under the cover of darkness they unearthed a sword bearing Mary Queen of Scot's personal monogram and an inscription proclaiming Meonia fore Marye. Meonia; the name given to a green jewel believed to be the Philosophers Stone of the alchemists. Soon after a green jewel was discovered inside a seventeenth-century brass casket....a twelve year quest of supernatural drama, spectral visitations and confrontations with sinister forces. One by one five further swords, all identical to the first , surfaced under mysterious circumstances....the search is on to uncover their maker, their purpose, their ultimate use, and, of course the seventh and final Sword of Meonia". In 1989 the author and a colleague located and unearthed a sword which they believed had been made from a sword belonging to King Arthur. When he appeared on television with his discovery, five other people came forward who, as a result of dreams or visions, had found other swords belonging to the set of seven. According to legend, when the seven swords are brought together there will be a last battle with the forces of evil. At the end of the 19th century a group of Masons supposedly tried to bring the swords together but were defeated by an ancient occult conspiracy. The Masons dispersed and buried the swords in various places around the country. Now the author invites the reader to help him with the renewed quest for the seventh sword of destiny.

The Secret Doctrine
The Synthesis of Science, Religion and Philosophy.

Books: 1-Cosmogenesis 2-Anthropogenesis. Unabridged Verbatim of Original Edition of 1888. A large quantity of material dealing with the history of occultism as contained in the lives of the great Adepts of the Aryan Race, and showing the bearing of occult philosophy upon the conduct of life, as it is and as it ought to be.
What is contained in this work is to be found scattered throughout thousands of volumes embodying the scriptures of the great Asiatic and early European religions. What is now attempted is to gather the oldest tenets together and to make of them one harmonious and unbroken whole. The publication of many of the facts herein stated has been rendered necessary by the wild and fanciful speculations in which many Theosophists and students of mysticism have indulged in their endeavor to, as they imagined, work out a complete system of thought from the few facts previously communicated to them. But it is perhaps desirable to state unequivocally that the teachings, however fragmentary and incomplete, contained in these volumes, belong neither to the Hindu, the Zoroastrian, the Chaldean, nor the Egyptian religion, neither to Buddhism, Islam, Judaism nor Christianity exclusively.
The Secret Doctrine is the essence of all these. Sprung from it in their origins, the various religious schemes are now made to merge back into their original element, out of which every mystery and dogma has grown.

Hodson, a noted occultist, medium and scholar, comments on the occult and spiritual meaning of the New Testament, interpreting the four accounts, or Gospels of the life of Christ, as put down in the King James version of the Bible.
Hodson asserts that the Bible should be considered in both its historical and its allegorical significance.
"Ever must it be remembered that the wondrous story (of Jesus the Christ) was never intended to be read as a record of external events alone, but rather as a revelation of the divine within man."

The Causal Body and the Ego
cover image of The Causal Body and the Ego by A E Powell

This book forms last of a series of compilations dealing with the various bodies of man.
Throughout the series the same plan has been adopted. Works written by Annie Besant and by C.W. Leadbeater, have been thoroughly searched, sorted, arranged and classified, so as to present to the student of modern Theosophy a coherent and sequential account of the finer bodies of man.
In addition, there has been incorporated information regarding the planes, or worlds, associated with these four bodies of man. This will serve to make a little easier the path of those who desire to obtain a comprehensive grasp of what may be termed the technical aspects of modern Theosophy.
References to the sources of the information have throughout been given in the margin, so that any student who so desires, may verify for himself every statement made, at its original source.
