"There are not trophies or awards on this battleground, only scars which serve as reminders of our dedication and commitment to the path and of the lessons transmitted to us by our respective lineages and teachers. Yet this is the ultimate gift which is only awarded to the few and the truly courageous ones who will walk the merciless path and learn to listen to the voice of pain. What is your stance? Are you ready to listen?" - Craig Williams
In this episode of the Gnostic Warrior Radio Show and Podcast, I again have the honor of interviewing Gnostic Brother, Craig Williams. Craig not only is a Gnostic and a Leader of The Order of the Gnostics, he is also a true alchemist who has a bachelor's degree in religious studies with a focus on Eastern religions, and a master's degree in Oriental medicine, and a professional member of the American Herbalist Guild.
In other words, he is truly a man who walks the talk and lives the wise life of hard knocks according to the path. A true student and teacher of the ancient teachings.
Craig explains in this podcast how the "body is the battlefield", and how physical health is so vital for mental health and for spiritual balance, but that the modern occult scene is threatened by this. He talks about how rest and relaxation is important to both physical and spiritual health.
Craig also briefly discusses his involvement with Paul Waggener and Operation Werewolf. The Operation Werewolf about page states, " Mixing together equal parts fight club, strength regimen, motorcycle club and esoteric order, Operation Werewolf is more than the sum of its parts. It is not an organization, but an organism- living and breathing by its tenets and watchwords, “Iron and Blood.”
Craig runs a holistic medical practice specializing inTraditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, and Ayurvedain Austin Texas. He is one of the few Westerners to receive the “Veda Kovid” and “Yogacharya” titles from David Frawley and the American Institute of Vedic Studies.
