"At the centre of ancient Gnosticism is the experience of gnosis; a silent knowing of God that gives rise to an unshakeable faith in the essential goodness of existence. With the experience of gnosis comes the discovery of the ‘Christ within’. This is our spiritual essence that is one with God.
In the East it is called the atman or buddha-nature. I call it the 'deep self'. It is our deepest being which is one with all beings. With the knowledge that all is one comes the experience of all-encompassing love the Gnostics call agape. I call it ‘big love’, because it is so very big.
It is an exquisite feeling that reaches right down into the body. It’s a love so strong it can sustain us through the horrors of life. It is a love so unconditional we can even love our enemies." (more…)
"If you look at the historical conditions that gave rise to the various gnosticisms we know today, in most cases it is self-evident that the early gnostics never set out to describe reality. (Creation, sure... but not Reality.) You don't really find the family trees and cultural/historical events you find in the Old Testament, for instance. What presides over the physical takes prominence over the physical. And it certainly nails the 'mouth feel' of some of these entities and their impact on the physical, but the story of our world is more than that. (more…)
"Healing has always been intimately connected with Spirit. Traditionally, healing fell to the priests/priestesses and/or the shamans who were uniquely positioned to guide the patient back into right relationship with the Divine. In the shamanic world view, all illness and disease are seen as having its root cause in a disrupted or imbalanced relationship with Spirit. In Jungian/Depth psychology we would frame this as the conscious/ego self-being disconnected, disrupted, or out of balance with the Unconscious/Self. (more…)
"We have already seen that Jung believed that everything that eventually emerges into consciousness originates in the unconscious; i.e., the unformed archetypes achieve form as we experience them in our outer lives and in our dreams. Thus it is not sufficient to look at the events of our lives causally; we also had to look at them from a teleological point-of-view.
That is, not only are we pushed forward by our past actions, we are also pulled forward by the actions we need to take, many of which are contained within us as archetypes. Because dreams are the most common and most normal expression of the unconscious psyche, they provide the bulk of the material for its investigation." (more…)
In this episode of the Gnostic WarriorRadio Show and Podcast, I have the pleasure of interviewing, Carlos Tanner. Carlos is the founder of the Ayahuasca Foundation and is currently living in Iquitos, Peru where has lived and trained with the Shipibo Curanderos since 2004.
After living and studying with a curandero for over four years, Carlos worked to provide a safe and effective way for people to not only receive treatment in the healing tradition of the Amazon but also to study the tradition, the way he had with his maestro. The idea for the Ayahuasca Foundation was born from a desire to spread the science of plant medicine back into the world. The Foundation supports the preservation of indigenous wisdom and culture, offering healing retreats and educational courses, and conducting research focused on the ayahuasca healing tradition used for millennia by indigenous healers of the Peruvian Amazon.

"Every element of the world will change, economics, cultural norms, societal norms, national boundaries, international relations, the nature of politics, the power structure, the arts, science, technology, philosophy, religion, and consciousness itself. There is no turning back at this point. Much will go by the wayside but the most important thing, human relationships is arriving at its place in the sun.
To navigate these times you will have to be most flexible. Like the Ravens, learn to enjoy the most turbulent conditions. Be as present as possible and do not be attached to the outcome. Take nothing personally and make no assumptions. (more…)

This is a special podcast recording of Manly P. Hall's, "What The Ancient Wisdom Expects Of Its Disciples."
This is a study concerning the mystery schools. A practical guide for those who wish to avoid the many pitfalls that can occur on the path of discipleship. It also shows how enlightenment is earned by personal dedication to a spiritual code of conduct.
Like Hall has done many times in my life, he helped answer many of the questions I have had about the secret mysteries and the path. (more…)
