This book came into being from the author’s exasperation at the ignorance of many users of the Thoth tarot deck. They prefer to go by their “intuition” rather than study Crowley’s companion book to the deck, The Book of Thoth. “It’s too dense” they cry. “I’m not interested in these philosophies; I just want to read Tarot.” The above sentence is the greatest insult to Aleister Crowley, the creator of the Thoth deck. For the deck’s purpose was to convey the higher mysteries to the diviner. Crowley intended for the deck never to be sold separately from the Book of Thoth. And so, heart full of elitist snobbery and sense of obligation to Crowley, the author of this book set out to spoon feed this dense material to the masses, without watering down its contents. In the spirit of Crowley who sought to enlighten the world, the author has added his own contribution to Crowley’s legacy, out of duty. It was due to Crowley’s belief in freedom of information, during an era of politics and secrecy, that the author was able to get his own hands on the gem of all spiritual writing, the Book of Thoth.

A woman who struggles on the spiritual path needs validation, guidance, inspiration and practical advice. This handbook is to help her survive the transition of the past several centuries and come to her full empowerment. This is especially for she who needs to reprogram herself as the Warrior Priestess in what is still a mans world. It is for the one who seeks to understand her place as the embodiment of the Divine Feminine Spirit because now it is time to uplift the wounded feminine consciousness to its rightful power, to transmute the negative results of ignorance and subjugation. This book is a call and a guide for the neophyte on the Path as well as for all the extraordinary women who are searching for a Friend in the dark, when they are feeling most damned and abandoned because of their Vision. It is for all the Spiritual Warrior/Priestesses who have forgotten some of the pitfalls, as well as the joys, of their Journey. This book will serve as an inspiration for those who have lost that Sight. In the playing field of womens spirituality, no one book or resource offers such a clear picture of the magical destiny of the Woman of Tomorrow, especially for those with eclectic beliefs. THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR PRIESTESS addresses this need for self transformation by inspiring the reader with important quotations as well as the authors guidance, step by step direction, affirmations, useful astrological insights, as well as a section that asks questions that will push the reader into changing some tired perceptions. It is written to fire up the spirit of the sleeping Feminine Spirit in both women and men. It is a handbook and empowerment manual for the growing army of individuals born at this special time in Mother Earths history to help rebalance Her during certain changes. ...for all of those brave souls willing to go in an exciting new direction. WHY THE READER SHOULD READ THIS BOOK This is not another book about the womens spirituality movement or about why women are goddesses. Rather it is a bridge between traditional magickal wisdom and the everyday challenges of the woman of the 90s. It is a call to transformation and will answer the intense desire for women of all ages and colors to heal their lives. It will give them permission and purpose to become what they really are: perfected beings. It will also bring on an almost-instant wakeup call for men. It embraces no particular theology, religion or mythology and is not a psychological treatise. It does not advocate any one path to take, nor is it anti anything except ignorance....It does come from a spacious metaphysical vision that many will relate to with a sigh of relief. The average woman is still rather paralyzed and in partial ignorance of her power as a Magical Being...because she does not even have the voice or words to help herself. And most books on this subject are still either too academic or beyond the average womans experiences. This book will serve as a tool and a light to help her see herself. The Talking Stick section at the end of each chapter is to jumpstart some profound self questioning - as well as a handy starting point in teaching situations....ideal to teach self empowerment workshops all over the world. The extensive Resources section at the back of the book is to help locate the key material for the process. This book will be appropriate for several markets: Feminist, Goddess, Spiritual, Metaphysical, Womens Self Help. It should be in metaphysical centers, universities, feminist study groups, and womens conferences and gatherings. It is for women ages 16-90 who seek inspiration and practical advice. It is for men who are trying to align with the female spirit, both in

The Knowledge That Leads to Wholeness

The Knowledge that Leads to Wholeness is the first book to specifically illustrate how the major Gnostic myths underlie Jungs theory of individuation. It is a compelling and in-depth examination of a life-changing journey that begins with the author discovering the forgotten secrets of the Gnostics. These secrets are gradually unveiled as the author and his loyal dog, Gold, are initiated, each in their own way, to put the ancient knowledge into practice. Dr. Lloyd explores the esoteric side of Carl Jung and reveals the connections between Jungs pivotal theory of individuation, i.e. the journey to wholeness, and the powerful, visionary myths told by the pioneers of the psyche, the Gnostics. He details what happens to a person who is on the road to wholeness, how the person will change, and how a new divine-human identity will be born into the world as a result of undertaking this transformational odyssey. -KIRKUS DISCOVERIES Review - Did Carl Jungs principles of psychology have Gnostic origins? A Marine Corps Ph.D. explores the complex mystical possibilities. Lloyd splits his expansive hypothesis of the souls journey into three vital steps (preparation, undertaking and re-birth) in discovering Jungs path to wholeness. He credits Jung with saving his life by way of unlocking his imagination (the souls voice) and spiritual mindset. The author familiarizes readers with the Gnostic religious movement, practitioners of an intensely spiritual inner exploration, who believed that humans are not bound to experiences solely of the body and mind. His literary gift to Jung is these comparative ruminations, all exuding a great amount of imagination and provocative thought. Running parallel to the authors spiritually progressive interests is his adventuresome interaction with and imaginal dog named Gold, who discovers two seeds of knowledge. The first rediscovers the spark of divine life, whereby humans are one and the same with God, and the second amplifies Jungs individuation theory that the human ego must relate to the unconscious mind to achieve psychological health. Unerringly throughout his narrative, Lloyd grafts Gnostic myths with Jungian wisdom. He focuses on the psychic creator and king of the material world Demiurge in association with second-century Gnostic visionary Valentinus, whose tragic myth of Sophia tells of a restless female deity who travels outside of herself searching for wholeness rather than looking inward, and her ultimate repentance. Comparatively, Jung also writes of humans who restrict themselves to their five senses rather than tapping into the core strength of their imaginative visions where uncanny experiences might spring forth. As Lloyd (and Gold) survey principles of higher consciousness, the self, the transformative life-cycle process, and the concluding Syrian lyrical myth Song of the Pearl as they are juxtaposed against Jungs theories, the author also cites Gnostic challenges to contemporary religious beliefs as in the re-imagined genesis of Jesus of Nazareth. Most interestingly, Lloyd inserts Jung into his narrative to quiz his arbiters as to whether they have the desire to discover the mystery of their existence. Unfiltered hokum for some, but those who are open to it will find much-needed nourishment and direction for their searching souls. --Nielsen Business Media, 770 Broadway, New York, NY 10003 646-654-7277 fax 646-654-4706 [email protected] Visit www.robertcharleslloyd.com
