An Introduction to Mystery Traditions

Introduction into different traditions through the ages with emphasising self-realisation, the concept of lineage, ritual experience and the practice of `keeping one's one counsel'.

Greece, Rome, Egypt and beyond all had their mystery traditions in classical times. The Rosicrucians, Freemasonry, magical orders and others have carried these traditions into our own century. We look at what has bound these - apparently diverse - currents together through the ages - the stress on self-realisation (particularly through initiation), the concept of lineage, ritual experience and the practice of `keeping one's one counsel'.

Kenneth Rees has lectured on esoteric philosophy in both university and college settings for over three decades. He is a sociologist of religion and adult educationalist and has numerous publications to his name. He also has extensive participatory experience of lineaged Orders and contemporary mystery traditions with their concomitant practices.
