Publisher Comments:

When Jonathan Talat Phillips experiences a devastating loss as a countercultural media activist, he unwittingly starts on a mystical journey marked by underground ayahuasca ceremonies, kundalini awakenings, prankster spirit guides, extraterrestrial encounters at the Burning Man festival, and miraculous energy healings that reshape his skeptical worldview. Along the way, he chronicles the rise of an international movement that is trailblazing visionary ways to address our current planetary crisis through raised consciousness.

To better understand his spiritual journey, Jonathan delves into his own Christian background, discovering the lost rites of the mystery schools. Uncovering secret "electric" meanings behind biblical symbols like the serpent, dove, and tree of life, he reveals how early Christians utilized a radical initiation process for harnessing divine energy in order to achieve gnosis, direct knowledge or experience of the divine. Jonathan suggests that these mystical symbols, which appear in spiritual traditions across the globe, offer a profound energetic roadmap and alchemical message for personal transformation, as well as a potential evolutionary shift for our world.

Synopsis:

Christianity's little-known beginnings can be traced to the mystery schools, where initiates sought to acquire gnosis, "direct knowledge or experience of the divine." Through a radical initiation process, early Christians accessed divine energy to achieve higher states of consciousness, otherwise known as "the Kingdom of Heaven." The hidden meanings of Biblical symbols like the Tree of Life, the Holy Spirit, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Star of David reveal the inner workings of this "electric" alchemy. The Electric Jesus takes readers deep inside this tradition.

When Jonathan Talat Phillips experienced a devastating loss as a media activist, he unwittingly started on the mystical journey recounted in this book. This journey was marked by spirit guides, ayahuasca ceremonies, kundalini awakenings, extraterrestrial encounters, and miraculous healings that gave him new hope and visionary insight on addressing planetary crisis. The Electric Jesus provides a healing bridge that helps readers see beyond present-day polarities, uniting mysticism and fundamentalism, science and religion, and evolution and intelligent design.

I really liked this book, basically swallowed it whole. He establishes the narrative consciously and engagingly while keeping things simple as the content of the book evolves to tackle some seriously interesting and complex topics in a very concise manner. His words paint a vivid picture of his experiences while he ties in the things he learns along his journey. He provides information and perspective on things like Gnosticism, ayahuasca, extra-terrestrials, burning man, consciousness evolution and more as they tie in to his personal story.

Written in a first person narrative I found it easy to relate with him as he goes through these experiences, yet I also found myself astonished and excited about the prospect of experiences this intense actually happening to somebody. This book comes highly recommended from me and my kudos goes out to Jonathon for putting himself out there with such a raw window into his personal life. Thanks mate.

An inspiring and amazing personal story filled with deep symbolism, real life and incredible tales of sex, sacraments, love, connection, loss, growth, bravery, discovery and leadership - to name a few. This autobiography came out late in the year - but should not be over-looked - easily my favorite book of 2011 - thank you Jonathan for writing your story!!

A personal story deep with imagery, yet able to scribe on the surface of reality, this book creates a rather round bubble that is the world of Jonathan Talat Phillips - adventure, romance, inner journey, outer journey, mystery (and now, history!) - what an incredible walk to have on this Earth! Thank you Jonathan for sharing your Journey!
