When W. L. Ham approaches the Nagual Lujan Matus for insight into enigmatic events that have marked his awareness, what he learns revolutionizes everything he thought he knew. Realizing that he has found an authentic guide, Bill enters into a intensive apprenticeship and directly begins to experience the multiplex of luminous interactivity that is our living matrix as never before. Like countless others, Bill had been galvanized when concepts like "the energy double', "dreaming awareness', and "first and second attention', were introduced in the 1960s.

This is a fantastic audio book. Lujan is very thorough and detailed. And Russell is a great narrator.

This anonymous fourteenth-century text is the glory of English mysticism, and one of the most practical and useful guides to finding union with God ever written. Carmen Acevedo Butcher’s new translation is the first to bring the text into a modern English idiom - while remaining strictly faithful to the meaning of the original Middle English. The Cloud of Unknowingconsists of a series of letters written by a monk to his student or disciple, instructing him (or her) in the way of Divine union.

Beautifully narrated! An awesome read, and beautifully translated from the old English text. They've done a marvellous job with this. Highly recommended for those walking the contemplative path.

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.

I Love this book, it's very informative. The authors were on point with all of the esoteric traditions discussed and highly educated. They did their research.
