The reality is that without the Gnostic spark we might have never had the Renaissance. Without the Gnostic spark, the Enlightenment Period would have been half as bright. Without the Gnostic spark, we would have been robbed of some of the greatest thinkers, poets and mystics of all of history. We take a hard look at the Gnostic legacy in history, as well as understand the spanning concept of Gnosis.

In the 19th century, a French occult movement flourished in Paris that forever transformed the landscape of esoteric spirituality. Without it, there might have not been a Golden Dawn or Theosophy. Beyond that, France has always been a hotbed of heretical religion. We journey into the ideas and impact of French Occultism, from Eliphas Levi to Papias, from the resurgence of Freemasonry to the renewal of the Rosicrucians, and everything in between. Furthermore, we understand the French Gnostic Church revival that set the foundation for both women and human rights in modern times.

Our Holiday Special! And in a not-so odd way, Scientology mirrors the materialistic rave that is the Holiday Season, as well as the American Dream gone mad. Our guest relates his activist work against a religion that still holds sway in parts of the world and still ruins so many souls. We also discuss the history of Scientology, including the parallels of L. Ron Hubbard’s ideology and today’s political atmosphere. Lastly, we discover if perhaps Scientology might rise again into an orthodox machine like it was 20 years ago, and what this might mean for society.

Our extroverted society has vilified and made humanity incapable of dealing with the important state of being called loneliness. Social media and mass media have made us more isolated to one another, eroded our sense of real community, and robbed of us of the coping skills to handle those sacred times of inner contemplation. Great masters and artists in the past gained their Gnosis through understanding the opportunities of revelatory loneliness; but this ability is slowly vanishing under the chatter of a noisy world impeding us to glance inwardly or at the deeper sources of our being. We bring light to this dark shadow that is eroding the collective consciousness and hiding our access to the collective unconsciousness. We explore the philosophies, psychologies, and theologies that championed the holy temple of loneliness. We take example from past luminaries who found great truths and unified humanity in their voyages into the oasis of loneliness. We learn that even while in solitude we are never truly alone, and never will be.

Beneath the Orthodox narratives lies the true identity of Jesus Christ. In reality, he was a Samaritan magician who brought a mystical dispensation that made humans divine on earth. His name was Simon Magus. This revelation is supported by the Gnostic texts that also expose the arcane rituals of a movement possibly originating with John the Baptist—and as well supported by historical records such as the writings of Josephus and others. We mine the New Testament, Nag Hammadi library and edited history to find the life and fate of a spiritual Messiah. And why Simon’s message was so radical the Jews, Christians and Romans of his time had to censor and instead give the world a sanitized savior for crowd control.

The Gospel of Thomas remains one of the most popular and approachable alternative writings of early Christianity. Within this apocryphal text, though, are found mystic layers that connect to other Gnostic Gospels and the wisdom of arcane masters—including some startling truths about the Archons, the Demiurge, the nature of reality, and the origins of the universe. We mine for these secrets that grant us answers to humankind’s destiny. Our guest also relates his personal journey from a materialist to a mature Gnostic that included guidance from entities the world does not know.

Not only might have he given you fits in your high school geometry class, this mysterious figure coined the word philosophy, was initiated in the Orphic & Egyptian Mysteries, understood the universe as a harmony of music, math and magic, and founded perhaps the first egalitarian, ascetic cadre of freethinkers in the West. He influenced most of the greatest philosophers of Greece including Plato. Whether in history and in legendry, this man is the grandfather of most esoteric schools of thought our culture. You know him simply as Pythagoras.

Despite its ancient pedigree and phantasm presence, Gnosticism can be applied to our modern times, even in everyday life. Gnosticism was always meant to be a living religion, or at least an active philosophy to combat the madness of changing civilizations. Our guest proposes a “middle path” of Gnostic mores and attitudes that can help us navigate the current political, economic and religious systems that seem to be stranded in an archonic mindset. There must be some way out of here, said the Joker to the Thief. Until then, you can get some relief in the daily grind of the 21st century.

Modern politics has become paralyzed in a world of harsh polarities and mirror-maze media. Western Culture is in crisis as well, seemingly out of fresh ideas; and there seems to be no solutions except more intolerance and more violence. This didn't happen overnight. Humanity has been gradually fragmenting and losing touch with its innovative spirit for centuries, the main causes the oppression and suppression of extreme ideologies. A book proposes that perhaps it is time to seek answers in some of the vilified philosophies and movements of antiquity that, when allowed to flourish, have indeed created benign egalitarian cultures in the past. These are the heretical Gnostic and Neoplatonic traditions. If tapped into correctly, both mystic schools of thought can perhaps finally heal the political and cultural arenas of our postmodern era before humanity is plunged into yet another Dark Ages.

Astral Guest—Arthur Versluis, author of The Mystical State: Politics, Gnosis, and Emergent Cultures, as well as Chair of the Department of Religious Studies and Professor in the College of Arts & Letters at Michigan State University.

Gnosticism is a countercultural spirituality that forever changed Christianity. Before it arose, humanity was subservient to the gods of this world and their representatives in temples and palaces. Gnosticism proposed that human beings were manifestations of the divine, disrupting the hierarchical foundations of the ancient world. Subversive and revolutionary, the Gnostics taught that prayer and meditation could bring human beings into an ecstatic spiritual union with a transcendent deity. This mystical strain affected not just Christianity but many other religions; and it represents our understanding of the purpose and meaning of religion today. Beyond this new paradigm change on Gnosticism—which eerily parallels the countercultural movements of the late 20th century—we delve into the latest in Gnostic scholarship: the mysterious woman known as Miriam who founded Mandaeism; the hitherto unknown Jeuians behind the Pistis Sophia; how Paul was more Gnostic than ever believed; and much more.
