What is mysticism and what separates it from delusion? Can reason discern and nurture the mystical experience in an age of harsh scientism? We take the plunge into answering these questions and find how to prosper with mysticism in modernity — leaning on the ideas of CG Jung, Joseph Campbell, Michael Talbot, John Keel, and other innovative thinkers, as well as concepts like Neurophenomenology, Chaos Theory, and Heuristics.

Gary Lachman joined us to discuss his new book, The Return of Holy Russia. Is there a collective psyche of the Russian people? A form of mysticism and influencing mythology? And does this all shape the modern Russia state? This journey includes the pagan origins of the Russian people, Orthodox Church Mysticism, the Mongol invasion, the Romanovs, the Silver Age, the Bolshevik materialism, and much more.

The woman clothed with the sun in the Book of Revelation remains an intriguing figure in both religious and occult circles. What is the true identity of this cosmic heroine? With piercing scholarship, we realize that the enigmatic “Sun Lady” is the manifestation of a primordial wisdom goddess, and her story is nothing more than a Gnostic astral drama. We also find the true meaning of such apocalypse concepts as the Red Dragon, The Beast, 666, New Jerusalem, and more.

We go deep into the history and processes of the ancient art of transformation. We leave no Philosopher’s Stone unturned – from Hermes to CG Jung, from the secrets of the Ouroboros to the truth about turning lead-to-gold. Our exploration includes overlooked female alchemists and the connection of physics and alchemy. In these times, alchemy might be an essential spiritual tech in a world drowning hopelessly in nigredo.

We take an alternative view of Jesus that is largely supported by astute research. This viewpoint reveals a deeper dimension to the life of the Galilean savior — as well as a mystic side promoting both the wisdom of the ages and a unique theology to thrive under challenging times. From fresh insights in Bible parables to novel revelations on Mary Magdalene, we gain an overall message that is more important than ever.

Anthony Peake arrived at the Virtual Alexandria to discuss his new book, The Hidden Universe. We explored the ideas of the Pleroma/Kenoma and the Others - intelligent, self-motivated beings that are clearly not human in their origins. These include otherworldly visitors, from gods, angels, demons, and djinns to ghosts, UFOs, and aliens.

We explore one of the most enigmatic and renounced occult texts ever published. This examination of the Grand Grimoire includes a history of magic, as well as an overview of the architecture of the spirit world. All of this ultimately teaches how to make higher entities work for our lives, down here on a prison planet.

Astral Guests – Arundell Overman and Aaman Lamba, authors and translators of The Illustrated Grand Grimoire.

Apr 14, 2020

Like the rest of the Bible, the New Testament is both a history of consciousness and a manual for mind control. Navigating this duality can provide insights into our psyche and its programming. Was Paul a mystic or a madman? Was Jesus a magical healer or a fancy myth? Are biblical miracles heaven-sent or just part of the arsenal of timeworn apologetics? We take the middle path on these issues and more, all to hopefully address of our own magic, miracle, and madness.

Fear, confusion, and powerlessness have infected the planet. These maladies can be defeated by anyone who accesses their innate archetypes. What’s more, reclaimed archetypes provide a clear pathway to a higher meaning and purpose —in any time or situation — as well as unification with your authentic self. Even death becomes irrelevant in the light of complete individuation.

We honored a remarkable individual, a singular voice in the Esoterica. This including her history and evolution as a person, as well as addressing the controversial topic of her death. Tracy's ideas, vision, and spirit are more important than ever.

These are precarious times filled with technological, biological, and spiritual dangers. And then there is the swelling programming and conditioning from the rulers of this age. More than ever, it’s essential for seekers to draw upon their innate magic, imagination, and inner alchemy to bend a reality that is but a maze of fear and fabrications.

Psychiatry and traditional medicine have failed in treating schizophrenia. They have done more damage than good if one includes pharmaceuticals. But what if the “voices” of schizophrenics are not hallucinations caused by chemical imbalances? What if they are malignant entities feeding off mental negativity and pain? We explore this possibility from two sides: a psychiatric evaluator who confronted these mind parasites while working in prisons; and an individual who escaped the grip of the “voices” by drawing from esoteric techniques.

We take a deep dive into three Gnostic texts, including their theology, history, and cultural setting that gave them birth:

  • The Valentinian Gospel of Truth
  • The Sethian Secret Book of John
  • The Gnostic-Stoic Gospel of Mary

This exploration will uncover various Gnostic visions of salvation, the nature of the Logos, morality, creation – as well as insights on Yaldabaoth, Barbelo, Sophia, and several Gnostic sages.

James Bean returned to the Virtual Alexandria to discuss ancient vegetarianism: Gnostics, Christians, Jews & even Pagans. This included the Essenes, Pythagoreans, Therapeutae, Ebionites, and more. Was Jesus a vegetarian? Was Paul or John the Baptist against vegetarians? We also covered medieval Gnostics like the Manichaeans & Cathars.

Our guest shares his decades of wisdom in the occult practices, from techniques that endure today to profound lessons learned in the shifting sands of magick. This reflection includes insights on other prominent magicians like Aleister Crowley, Israel Regardie, Rodney Orpheus, and more. Is the Occult even occult anymore, and are past esoteric figures too politically incorrect to be respected? And how can magick work best for individuals in 2020 and beyond?

We’ discuss the Gnostic pedigree of Gurdjieff. This includes mining the Fourth Way, Beelzebub’s Tales, food for the moon, and Gurdjieff’s take on the Archons. Our discussion included other notable figures around Gurdjieff including Nietzsche, Ouspensky, Castaneda, and Jung, as well as esoteric traditions like Neoplatonism, Shamanism, and Yoga.

We are joined by writer and transpersonal therapist, Travis Edwards.

We get deeply acquainted with the Gnostic Sophia in all her aspects: theological, mythological, and psychological. This exploration takes us to the Pagan and Jewish pedigree of Sophia, from the Shekinah to Athena to every avatar in between. And then even to her extraterrestrial/Anunnaki possibilities. Our journey of understanding Lady Wisdom expands to the goddess archetype, including her suppression and possible return to an unbalanced cosmos.

From ancient times to today, the establishment has employed social engineering techniques to keep the population docile. This programming is a combination of spiritual, psychological, and vampiric methods. We unpack the archonic blueprint of mind control, ultimately finding a timeless Gnosis that frees us from institutionalized slavery.

We explore a novel esoteric system that fosters addiction recovery. It takes a holistic approach to transformation, drawing from various magical traditions, mystic orders, and alternative sciences. Our guest also shares how he came into this artistic and communal spirituality, a healing culmination of a life of heavy drug use and destructive living.

Our guest shares his life of an alcoholic – from surviving the unspeakable horrors of the Vietnam war to living a lie as an academic and family man. Ultimately, he found redemption with part of his recovery fueled by esoteric traditions like Buddhism and Gnosticism. Beyond an inspirational tale, we present a road map on how to overcome the archons of dependency and kindle your divine spark.

The brilliant esotericist Gigi Young joined us to discuss her life as a psychic, as well as her views on the various extraterrestrial agents and dark occult forces invading our planet (and how the forces of light help us). We took a deep dive into AI, transhumanism, and other archonic technology. We covered the very relevant ideas of Rudolf Steiner and other occult exemplars. In the end, it was a lot of fun and a lot of Gnosis for the ages.

Chris Knowles, Robert Price, and Carol Price joined us to pay homage to one of history’s greatest drummers and lyricist, Neil Peart. We explored the themes of individuality, dystopia, and technology found in Peart’s songs, as well as the overall history and impact of the band Rush. The Spirit of the Radio was rough as we overcome some tech issues, but all in all, it came out really well (and the bonus is amazing).

Known as the Father of all Heresy and Gnosticism, Simon Magus was also the keeper of the ancient mysteries of a forgotten goddess. The early church despised the magician’s efforts to restore the divine feminine censored by haughty kings and the cult of Yahweh. We mine the history, theology, and legacy of Simon Magus and his consort, Helen, – all to unlock the transformative wisdom of primordial deities like Ashera, Anat, Sophia, and Ishtar.

HP Blavatsky, Aleister Crowley, and other esoteric exemplars were instrumental in infusing eastern mysticism into western culture – in ways that are still overlooked today. Beyond a deep dive in connecting these karmic dots, we find the parallels between Gnosticism and Buddhism/Hinduism. And ultimately discover how a reintegration of eastern and western thought can help the fragmented psyche of our current society.

We explore the history of fraternal societies in modernity. Beyond popular groups such as the Freemasons and the Order of the Golden Dawn, we examine lesser-known ones like the Order of the Elks, the Druids, the Old Mechanics, and many others. From symbolism to rituals to social activism, it’s an odyssey on the impact of secret societies, all the while separating legend from fact.
