Publisher Comments:

REALITY introduces us to the extraordinary mystical tradition that lies right at the roots of Western culture, and to the magic of the ancient masters of wisdom who laid the foundations for the world we now live in.

It has become common in the West to turn to Eastern civilizations for real understanding and enlightenment. And yet at the origins of our own seemingly materialistic culture lies a tradition of incredible wisdom and significance which we need, now more urgently than ever, to rediscover and reclaim.

This book is the story of Parmenides, Empedocles, and others like them: spiritual guides and experts in other states of consciousness, prophets and magicians, healers and interpreters of dreams. It also documents the excruciating but inevitable process which led to their work and teaching being distorted, covered over, forgotten. And, most importantly, it presents the original teachings of these people in all their astonishing immediacy and power--revealing their ability, just as vibrant now as at the dawn of the Western world--to awaken us to what reality truly is.

Nothing less than a manual of transformation, REALITY is destined to become a classic.

Synopsis:

The mystical tradition that lies at the root of Western culture and the magic of the ancient masters of wisdom who laid the foundations for the world we now live in are introduced in this book. Containing lost and forgotten ancient Greek texts in modern translation, this book relates the teachings of Parmenides, Empedocles, and others like them—spiritual guides and experts in other states of consciousness, prophets and magicians, and healers and interpreters of dreams. Based on texts from more than 2,000 years ago, it also documents the process that led to their work and teaching being distorted, covered over, and forgotten.

Synopsis:

The majestic qualities of the mind, forgotten for centuries, now revealed.
