The Return Of Gnosis explores the premise that there exists a kind of “knowledge” which is fundamentally different from the knowledge we were taught in school and are accustomed to in 21st century western society.

Borrowing from the definition of Gary Lachman, gnosis can be thought of here as, “the immediate, direct, non-discursive cognition of reality” that includes the secular as well as the spiritual aspects of life.

Drawing on a rich variety of arts and literature, the sciences, and direct personal experiences, the authors aim to bring to the forefront a  way of looking at ourselves and the world around us that offers unique insight into the origins and archetypal meaning of various social and religious traditions, symbols and cultural artifacts, and the degree to which they foster direct and personal intimacy with life’s truths and mysteries.
