Your help is gratefully needed.
I am putting together a reading list for a coming course ‘Experiential Metaphysics.’ It is the reading list for what we were calling a modern Mystery School.
Below you will see a provisional list. I hope to bring it down to twelve titles that students must read. The books need to cover the essentials: cocepts and practices.
Please put your suggestions and edits in the comments box at the bottom of the page.
Many thanks 🙏
