By Dora van Gelder (1904 – 1999), also known as Dora Kunz.

Foreword by Caitlin Matthews

The Real Word of Faeries is a privileged glimpse into a joyous, animated universe. Dora van Gelder’s enchanting vision of her encounters with the fairy realm brings the magical and mysterious world of faeries to vital, appealing, and heartfelt life. Her gentle tales will delight the child in us, spark our grown-up imagination, rekindle our creative energy, and deepen our sense of connection with nature.

” If we are patient and courteous, we too can find fairy allies in the wild places of nature, in the secret pathways of our dreams, in the deep wisdom of the ancient and ancestral traditions of our land, as Dora van Gelder has demonstrated “. – Caitlin Matthews – from the Foreword.

From Chapter 4: ‘Fairy Life’ (p. 47):

” Between the human point of view and that of a fairy, or any member of the angelic kingdom, one of the main differences is that we live in a world of form and they live in a world of life. Our thoughts are primarily concerned with the form things have, and we seldom go further than that. But fairies are mainly concerned with the energy and life flowing around and within the form – life that is everywhere . . . “

Colonel Olcott and the Healing Arts – Blavatsky Lecture 2007

By Michael Gomes.

49 Pages | Blavatsky Lecture 2007 | Softcover |  The Theosophical Publishing House, London | No ISBN.

On August 29, 1882, Colonel Henry Steel Olcott (1832 – 1907), President-Founder of the Theosophical Society, was in Galle, Ceylon, on a lecturing tour to raise funds for the opening of the schools for Buddhist children. One of the people who came forward to contribute was a man, whose arm and leg had been paralyzed for eight years. Olcott, who had read the literature on animal magnetism, or mesmerism as it was also termed, and magnetic healing in his youth, says he was moved to try some healing passes with his hands over the man’s arm, telling him that he hoped he might feel better.

Later that evening the gentleman returned to thank the Colonel, saying indeed his condition had improved. This encouraged Olcott to treat the arm again. There was a marked improvement when he returned the next morning, and, after two more days of treatment, he could move his arm and open and close his hand. Olcott also tried working on the man’s leg, which responded well enough to allow his to walk freely and even run. To show his thanks, the now-healed man brought a friend, who was also paralyzed. When he was cured, others came in increasing numbers, to the point, the Colonel recalled, ‘within a week or so my house was besieged by sick persons from dawn until late night, all clamoring for the laying on of my hands’.

Within the space of a year, he would treat some 8.000 people, until, at the verge of his own health breaking down, he was ordered by his teacher to stop. This little-known episode in the work undertaken by Olcott offers and instructive glimpse into the revival of alternative healing that was occuring at the time and which has now entered the mainstream.

Kabbalah – An Introduction and Illumination for the World Today

By Charles Poncé.

297 Pages | Copyright 1973, seventh printing 1997 | Softcover, incl. illustrations | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835605108.

This detailed and readable introduction to the Kabbalah – the ancient system of Jewish mysticism – illuminates its fascinating history and points out its striking parallels with astrology, yoga, numerology and tarot. Over 100 illustrations, many reproductions of historic book plates, diagrams, and charts, bring the theories of Kabbalah vividly to life. Students of Kabbalism and anyone interested in esoteric thought will find Kabbalah an essential handbook on the background, doctrines, and applications of this rich and important mystical system.

From Part Three – ‘The Kaballah Today’ (p. 259 & 260):

” In order mythically to reconstruct the universe, we must reconstruct of rediscover the original unity within us by calling forth and constellating the total man, who each and one of us has the potential to become. This then, is the unity of opposites: the marriage of all the contradictions one might find between what one would like to do and what one is, and what one does and pretends to be. To this end must we reawaken the heart of the hero in our daily encounter with the dragon of the world, the beast that mythology tells us demands fresh flesh daily, if not the spirit of our generation. 

To many of us the Kaballah is dead. In order to revive it we must bring to it a new mythology. In much the same way as the first Kabbalists brought to their sacred scriptures a new life and greater depth by the application of mythical structures, so too must we now approach the Kabbalah with a new mythical language. That has been the goal of this introductory work: not only to introduce the general public to to the basic ideas of the Kabbalah, but to the most recent method of interpretation with which Jewish mysticism may be understood. “

The Pilgrim Self

By Robert Ellwood.

164 Pages | First Quest Edition 1996 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835607399.

” Life is . . . a series of sunrises, with night following behind them – each night a little death, each sunrise a minor birth . . . linked together by a single secret, the secret of who you really are. “

So begins this deceptively simple, poetic jewel of a book by Robert Ellwood, author of the best-selling inspirational classic Finding the Mind. Drawing on the teachings of Theosophist Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891), Ellwood describes the individual self as a Pilgrim journeying from life to life, learning, growing, evolving toward that state of infinite purity from which we come and which is our true home.

A spiritual Passages for today’s seeker, Ellwood’s gentle travelogue for the soul points to the deeper meaning of the stages and sign-posts of human life – childhood, adolescence, midlife, aging – offering guidance for the Pilgrim who is each of us, as we walk life’s winding Path.

From Chapter 2 – ‘Chinks of Eternity’ (p. 29):

As the Secret Doctrine puts it:

” The universe is worked and guided, from within outwards. As above, so it is below, as in heaven, so on earth; and man, the microcosm and miniature copy of the macrocosm, is the living witness to this Universal Law and to the mode of its action.

And again:

From Gods to men, from Worlds to atoms, from a Star to a rush-light, from the Sun to the vital heat of the meanest organic being – the world of Form and Existence is an immense chain, the links of which all are connected. “
