The co-editors of Gnosis magazine explore the many esoteric traditions that Western culture has to offer. While terms from Eastern spiritual practices such as Zen, mantra, and karma have become part of our daily lexicon, the traditions of Western spirituality have been largely unexplored by people searching for non-mainstream routes to spiritual experience. But for those who identify with Western culture, Western religious traditions have their own wisdom teachings that are more suitable to their needs and expectations.

This audiobook is a super interesting listen about the western mystery traditions, providing enough information about each genre for a great introductory overview. The narration is among the better I have heard of any of them. If you are interested in knowing western occult theory and philosophy I would highly recommend this for an enlightening experience!
