Hidden Wisdom: A Guide to the Western Inner Traditions

Hidden Wisdom: A Guide to the Western Inner Traditions Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Contemporary seekers on the hunt for an overview of the Western mystery traditions often face a small selection of dense, out-of-date tomes. Alternatively, Hidden Wisdom is a fresh, coherent, and accessible work that expounds many of the teachings of Western esotericism, examining its key figures and movements.

Synopsis:

This book is meant for those who have ever thought theres something deeply wrong in their life or the state of the world in general. So often were troubled by the anxieties of everyday life, numbly repeating daily rituals with no significance or inner meaning. Contemporary seekers long for a deeper spirituality that, while rooted in Western tradition, will reconnect them with the hidden wisdom that lies beneath all mystical teachings. For decades, our modern society has looked to the East for spiritual guidance and renewal. Here is a guide much closer to home that will lead to a refined and renewed spiritual path and help people rediscover their deeper selves—a true connection of the body, mind, and soul. Covering the gamut from Kabbalah, Gnosticism, and Sufism to Shamanism, Neopaganism, Theosophy, and mystical Christianity, Hidden Wisdom is the handbook to the Western wisdom traditions. Authors Smoley and Kinney examine the key figures and movements of these traditions throughout history to offer a balanced and coherent view of esoteric Western practices.
