Joyful Gnosis: Gnostic Light on Blavatsky’s Wisdom

By Stephan A. Hoeller.

25 Pages | Sunday July 27th, 2003 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, London | No ISBN.

The Blavatsky Lecture delivered at the Summer School of The Theosophical Society in England, the University of Loughborough.

An exploration of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky’s (1831 – 1891) teachings in the light of the embodiment of the Ancient Wisdom known as Gnosticism. The title of this lecture alludes to three specific topics:

  1. The teachings of the foundress and principal teacher of what has been called Modern Theosophy.
  2. The earlier embodiment of the Ancient Wisdom Tradition known as Gnosticism.
  3. The character of this same Wisdom tradition described here as ‘joyful Gnosis’.

From page 5:

” Gnosticism is the teaching based on Gnosis, the knowledge of transcendence arrived at by way of interior, intuitive means. Although Gnosticism thus rests on personal religious experience, it is a mistake to assume all such experience results in Gnostic recognitions. It is nearer the truth to say that Gnosticism expresses a specific religious experience, an experience that does not lend itself to the language of theology or philosophy, but which is instead closely affinitized to, and expresses itself through, the medium of myth. Indeed, one finds that most Gnostic scriptures take the forms of myths. The term ‘myth’ should not be taken to mean ‘stories that are not true’, but rather, that the truths embodied in these myths are of a different order from the dogmas of theology or the statements of philosophy. “

The Fool’s Pilgrimage – Kabbalistic Meditations on the Tarot

By Stephan A. Hoeller.

132 Pages | Copyright 1975, Second Quest Edition 2004 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835608395.

Including an accompanying CD.

Stephan Hoeller’s handbook for heightening consciousness is unrivaled for its clarity in explaining the ancient mystical Kabbalah in relation to the Tarot’s Major Arcana. On the new enclosed CD, Dr. Hoeller narrates twenty-two meditations to guide the reader easily into a contemplative state.

From Chapter 7 –  ‘The Fools’s Pilgrimage’ (p. 65):

” The human being is a fool. Shakespeare was right when he said: ‘What fools we mortals be!’ The first card of the greater Arcana, the Fool, pictures man as a carefree youth, striding gaily forth in such a position, that his next step may send him over the edge of the cliff. As noted in connection with the Eleventh Path, we are this fool ourselves, divine and immortal souls ready to descend into manifest existence. It is also we, ourselves, having descended from Kether to Malkuth, now ascending from earth to the heavens. Of all the Arcana, the fool manifests the greatest freedom. “

The Royal Road – A Manual of Kabalistic Meditations on the Tarot

By Stephan A. Hoeller

119 Pages | First edition 1975, third printing 1988 | Softcover | Quest Books, USA | ISBN: 0835604659.

Integrating the two diciplines to heighten the experience of meditation.

Those, who are into Tarot and those, who are interested or involved in meditation will be attracted by this new book by the director of the Sophia Gnostic Center of Los Angeles. Designed to lead the reader easily into a meditative state, it includes 22 illustrations of the Major Arcana each juxtaposed with an appropriate meditation.

As the reader relates the cards to the paths that lead upward on the Kabalistic Tree of Life, heightened spiritual consiousness can result. The author has addressed The Royal Road to the general reader interested in the values in both the Tarot deck and in the Kabalistic interpretation of the Hebrew Scriptures.

From Chapter 2: ‘Tarot and Kabalah (p.13):

” Can the Tarot predict the future? Perhaps! The true answer, however can not be given so simply. If we recognize that, even though unconsciously, we are constantly shaping our future, it then follows that by establishing a magical contact with our unconscious we can learn much about our future and, what is more, we can influence and alter our future, thereby becoming, at least to a degree, masters of our own destiny. Time is a continuum, not a division, and its mysteries are often pierced when we recognize the proper significance of material clues to spiritual processes. Tarot divination is merely one particular application of these principles to the concerns of daily living. “

The Gnostic Jung and the Seven Sermons to the Dead

239 pages | Paperback | Quest Books, 2002

“Gnosticism like mysticism pursues the inner way; its authority is not external but internal–a living personal experience–but without denying the outer world. Under the guise of Basilides, a second-century AD Gnostic sage, Jung wrote in 1916 the Seven Sermons to the Dead after he had received intense psychic experiences..The author [Stephan Hoeller]…has made his own translation of the sermons and sets forth a lengthy explanation and far-ranging commentary on Jung, Gnosticism, and the present condition of the Western individual.”—Choice Review

Jung and the Lost Gospels – Insights into The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi Library

By Stephan A. Hoeller.

268 Pages | A Quest Original 1989, 6th printing 2004 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835606465.

Within a matrix of modern depth psychology, Stephan A. Hoeller shows similarities between secret traditions of the Essenes and early Gnostic mysticism.

Gospels discovered in the 1940s reveal a pre-Christian Judaism of Gnostic character. The Dead Sea Scrolls essentially are mystical documents. It appears the Scrolls’ Essene authors of 130 B.C. – 70 A.D. like the Nag Hammadi Gnostic authors of the Apostolic Age, experienced visions of an esoteric nature, and the Scrolls possess an inner, hidden meaning. The Nag Hammadi Library, discovered by two peasants, who unearthed clay jars in 1945 in upper Egypt, did not appear in English for 32 years, because they were knotted in wranglings among scholars, politicians, and antique dealers. The Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in clay jars in Palestine by a goatherder in 1947, weathered similar storms. The first team of analysts were most Christian clergy, since the material frightened church leaders. As Dr. Hoeller shows in Jung and the Lost Gospels, they rightly feared the documents would reveal information to detract from unique claims of Christianity. Indeed, the Dead Sea Scrolls and Nag Hammadi Library both contradict and complement accepted Old and New Testaments.

From Chapter 6 – ‘Errant Wisdom – The Myth of Sophia’ (p. 112):

” Sophia is the World Spirit, or the collective archetype of the entirety of cosmic and individual life, growth and development. As such, she is most closely associated with the nature and faith of humanity: the initial differentation and subsequent individuation of the soul and its Union with spirit. “

Gnosticism – New Light on the Ancient Tradition of Inner Knowing

257 pages | Paperback | Quest Books, 2002

We don’t have to look to the East for spiritual inspiration; there’s an ancient and authentic mystical tradition right here at home.

Gnosticism developed alongside Judeo-Christianity over two thousand years ago, but with an important difference: It emphasizes, not faith, but direct perception of God–Gnosticism being derived from the Greek word gnosis, meaning “knowledge.” Given the controversial premise that one can know God directly, the history of Gnosticism is an unfolding drama of passion, political intrigue, martyrdom, and mystery. Dr. Hoeller traces this fascinating story throughout time and shows how Gnosticism has inspired such great thinkers as Voltaire, Blake, Yeats, Hesse, Melville, and Jung.
