    One thought on “Mysticism: Initiation and Dream”

    1. This was a nice intellectual snack of a slim book. The slim volume is an essay that Andrew Chumbley wrote as an undergraduate at SOAS University in London in 2001. He was already an established and respected occultist at the time, having penned the Azoetia and Qutub by then. This book most certainly informs the material from those grimoires, shedding some light on the opaque and dense imagery contained in these. However, unlike the grimoires, this essay is written in an academic manner, due in n [...]

    2. I was initially attracted to this book because of its physical beauty. It was lying on the counter at Field's Metaphysical Bookstore and it captured my eye, then secured my purchase as soon as I picked it up. Its a true pleasure to hold.The text itself is equally as beautiful. Its an essay about mysticism, dreams, and initiation, as its title suggests. It is the most intelligent treatment of dreams I have read since Jung. In fact, it was almost too intelligent for me, I needed to look up several [...]

    3. A beautiful book, both in appearance and content. Sadly the author is no longer with us but his insight remains to be shared in volumes such as this.

    4. Excelent work which I will return to and read again in the future. Contains a wealth of information which I hope to absorb over time.
