The founder of the influential "Gnosis" magazine collects essays by some of today's finest spiritual writers to explore the West's magical and esoteric traditions.
Rosicrucianism, Freemasonry, Gnosticism, The Knights Templar . . . Even before the success of "The Da Vinci Code," many readers knew of these and other aspects of Western esoterica. But few understand their true meaning.
In "The Inner West," more than twenty essays by seventeen leading authors shine a light on some of the most mysterious and closely held aspects of the Western tradition. Its authors bring to life the symbolist and occult philosophies that populate the history and beliefs of the Western way. These same philosophies-which include variants of Christian and Jewish mysticism, and the teachings of figures like Rudolf Steiner and G. I. Gurdjieff-can present a deep and different spiritual path for today's seekers.
Spiritual seekers have often looked to the East for inspiration and guidance. Yet increasing numbers of people are discovering that many helpful wisdom traditions have existed right here in the West. With the Kabbalah and Tarot cards more popular than ever, and alternative spirituality from Wicca to Sufism gaining a new audience, "The Inner West" is a timely book for this expanding audience
