Here’s the symbol talked about at the start of the last episode on Rosicrucianism. The symbol is on the left and then it is broken down into its constituent parts on the right.
The Rosicrucianism that developed at the beginning of the Fifteenth Century did not spring into existence from nowhere.
In this episode we jump far back in time to the origins of the Vedic traditions and explore the early origins of the shamanic fire magic movement that eventually gave birth to Rosicrucianism, as well as setting the scene for future episodes on Alexandrian Syncretism, Hermeticism, Hinduism and Yoga.
We turn our attention to the founder of Rosicrucianism, Christian Rosenkreutz, his times, and his relationship to Martin Luther and the Reformation. This will be the first part in a long running series on Rosicrucianism.
In this episode we delve into the convoluted and unusual world of the Shinshukyo, which are often mistranslated as “Japanese New Religions”. Pana-Wave is one of the Shinshukyo that illustrates very well both the instinctive feeling that people have for loss-of-Nature and also what the Miasma can do to the responses they come up with.
Not suitable for beginners – this is Damon’s first monologue, which aims to clarify the role of Khoohk Arug in Spirit Dance. Shamanism is a huge subject with many layered depths. Khookh Arug provides one “way in” to level 3.
In this first episode of our new series on Wicca, we look at the historical origins of Wicca in the New Forest Coven in Dorset, England, as well as the background of some of the coven members in the Rosicrucian tradition.
In this episode we discuss the role of General Zhang Jun in the survival of Yue Fei’s tradition, as well as in the survival of members of Yue Fei’s extended family. We also discuss how Zhang Jun managed to protect himself from the purges carried out by Qin Hui.
In this episode we explore Heraclitus, an ancient Greek who was more Chinese than the Chinese. There are not just parallels between this remarkable man’s essential worldview and ancient Daoism – more than that, he was more fundamentally Daoist in outlook than are many contemporary Daoists today.
We head at last to Ancient Greece, and look at the attempts of Thales to challenge the miasma of his time.
We also discuss how he agreed with (or perhaps even originated the ideas of) Genesis in a way that modern Christians generally don’t.
