What do Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sun Worship, Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny have in Common with Terrence McKenna's elves, John Allegro's Dead Sea Scroll translations, Manly P. Hall's Secret Teachings of All Ages , Dr. Rick Strassman's (DMT) Spirit Molecule research, Gordon Wasson's Soma, and Michael Talbot's Holographic Universe? This book. However, it's not just a book- it's a paradigm-amending exploration superimposed over our perceptions of everyday reality.
When you pick up this book and peruse its novel content, you will inevitably draw your own unique value; as the data assembled within its pages has universal and timeless appeal.
Whether you are still searching for the answers to the questions you had back in Sunday School, or you are a fellow Traveler seeking the lesser-known tethers that bring these Beautiful Minds and their life works together into a simple yet infinitely detailed line of thought- Astrotheology and Shamanism is Your guide on the path to attaining the quintessential transcendental understanding, which we all innately seek.
In two words- "Thought Provoking". In three words- "Lubrication for Thought". It's what we always hope for and this book delivered. If you're still only considering this book; you happen to be looking at one of the most comprehensive, novel, and expertly organized resources on the planet- the details bring to life Life itself.
"If the Truth can be told so as to be Understood, it will be Believed.Read more ›
The information pointed to in this book serves to decode our modern society and the customs and belief systems it's built on. The knowledge pointed to in this book is immediately applicable to all of modern society's ills, which makes for an exciting read (despite its somewhat dry nature).
Odds are you won't agree with everything the authors say. I sure didn't. But that doesn't matter, for the bodies of knowledge introduced and explored are utterly profound and surprisingly relevant, anyway you look at it. This book is much much more than an intellectual excercise. This book serves as an excellent re-introduction to ourselves, through explaining what was conviniently left out of our 'public education'. This is the kind of knowledge that helps one decode history and culture, and help shed the old paradigm. Learn about the oppressive mindsets, rulers and 'leaders' that make up our history, and learn not just how, but WHAT THEY ARE OPPRESSING AND WHY.
The authors cover a LOT of ground. They deliver an excellent crash course in the origins of our culture, symbolism, and tradition. They do this through explaining how the masses have been CONSCIOUSLY MANIPULATED by governing bodies throughout the ages. As a rule, governing bodies and the elite in the 'background' have expertly exploited our lower nature, cultivating a violent, fearful mindset. Not anymore. Not with knowledge like this at our fingertips.Read more ›
The heart of John Allegro's work has been vindicated through the efforts of the authors. They have brought together Sumerian philologists and scholars confirming Allegro's findings, as well as having author, and Allegro's daughter, Judith Anne Brown, greatly involved in the book. "Indeed, Allegro re-discovered entheogens in the Bible" and the authors have helped prove it.
The information in this book covers highly sensitive and very important issues. The extent to which these subjects affect each and every one of us can not be overlooked. Human history, consciousness, religion, and those groups in which have held this knowledge and used it for control for thousands of years are all touched upon. The mythology and symbolism of the world's religions are deeply exposed in this work, accompanied by a wonderful overview of the leading researchers and theories in this field. The book's bibliography and references alone are amazing, offering a staggering amount of research for the reader to continue with.
In one of the first of its kind, this book explores the duality of astrotheology and shamanism. The ancient philosophy of "as above, so below" is shown in fascinating detail, the sun god in the sky and the savior down below.Read more ›
