Scholar of the occult and secret histories, John Michael Greer shines a light on 100 mysterious conspiracies and hidden societies throughout history, from Ancient Greece to the modern era.

The Freemasons. The Satanic Hell-Fire Club. The Illuminati. This fascinating book delves into 100 mysterious conspiracies across time, ranging from secret societies that planned revolutions to underground groups with sometimes-nefarious agendas. Illustrated with intriguing photos and ephemera, it’s a must-read for anyone interested in learning more about the hidden forces that have shaped some of the most significant events in history.
Embodying Osiris is a Jungian explanation of the great myth of Osiris, ancient Egypts venerated Lord of the Underworld and devoted husband of Isis, the mother goddess of wisdom and magic. This book examines the contemporary re-surfacing of Osiris as a psycho-spiritual model for the individual psyche. For Dr. Thom Cavalli, the gods did not in fact disappear but instead have been gradually re-emerging as psychological archetypes. Cavalli, a practicing Jungian psychologist, includes actual dream materials and clinical vignettes from his patients to amplify the myths content, revealing a means for real-life spiritual transformation.

In the myth Osiris is murdered and dismembered by his brother Set, who then scatters the pieces across the earth. But through the incantation of his beloved wife Isis, he is magically resurrected. Osiris brought back from the dead, the pinnacle of this sophisticated allegory, contains purposefully hidden keys. Seekers who de-code these keys gain access to real-life alchemical transformation. Embodying Osiris unlocks these deep Egyptian secrets, which Cavalli calls recipes, offering a radical shift in consciousness for readers.

In analyzing the myth, we discover a fresh, postmodern interpretation. So instead of asking questions like, How do we physically prepare our bodies for the afterlife? today, we ask, How can we embody Osiris in the modern world? Cavalli shows us the way through insights gathered from sacred rituals and festivals, such as the Opening of the Mouth ritual, Judgment in the Great Hall of Osiris, the Heb Sed festival, and other facets of ancient Egyptian culture. The goal ultimately for Cavalli is individual and collective individuation, what Jung calls the conscious realization of ones full potential. Adopt the wisdom of the Egyptians to journey upwards through the underworld, transcending death as the god who crafts victory from the ground up-Osiris.

The groundbreaking and classic study that first popularized occultism, alchemy, and paranormal phenomena in the 1960s

Provides profound insights into our perceptions of reality, telepathy, mutants, and parallel universes

Reveals the occult influences on the Nazis and introduces the alchemist Fulcanelli and the work of Charles Fort and Gurdjieff

Over Half a Million Copies Sold

This groundbreaking, international bestseller, first published in 1960, couples profound insights into the hidden history of humanity and our perceptions of reality with the scientific evidence that supports the existence of paranormal activity, telepathy, and extraterrestrial communications. The first book to explore in depth the Nazi fascination with the occult, Pauwels and Bergier also broke new ground with their study of pyramidology, alchemy and its close kinship with atomic energy, and the possibility of a widespread mutation of humanity that would herald the dawn of a new age for the earth. Their study of secret societies, starting with the Rosicrucians, suggests that such changes are actively being pursued in the present day by a conspiracy of the most spiritually and intellectually advanced members of the human race.

The Morning of the Magicians also explores the anomalous events collected by Charles Fort, the work of Gurdjieff, and the history of the mysterious Fulcanelli, who was widely believed to have manufactured the philosopher’s stone--which provided the Nazis the motive for mounting an intensive search for him during their occupation of Paris. Much more than a collection of strange facts defying conventional wisdom, this book remains a sophisticated philosophical exploration of repressed phenomena and hidden histories that asks its readers to look at reality with ever awakened eyes.

Publishers Marketing: In The Weiser Concise Guide to Alchemy, Brian Cotnoir offers a detailed, step-by-step introduction of Alchemy that explores its mysteries while illustrating its use as a modern spiritual system of attainment. He provides an overview of the history of Alchemy, from the first meldings of Egyptian technology, through the Middle Ages-the golden age of alchemy-right up to contemporary techniques. He demystifies the relationship between Alchemy and chemistry, and he provides evidence to detractors that Alchemy is much more than a medieval form of psychotherapy. (The guide includes practical laboratory experiments that safely, and intelligently, lead readers to an understanding of this ancient art and spiritual practice.)
