Quarter Bound in REAL Black Snakeskin!
This is a very important book for anyone interested in the work of Michael Bertiaux, and also the Typhonian Trilogies of Kenneth Grant. As its title suggests, it deals with Voudon Gnosis, in particular, the Voudon Gnosis of Michael Bertiaux. Anyone who has read (or attempted to read) Bertiaux’s The Voudon Gnostic Workbook, or the courses from the Monastery of Seven Rays, will know these works of “sprawling immensity”, are not easy to read & understand, and even more imposing, if you are trying to put them into practice. “David Beth has known Michael Bertiaux for many years, and has acquired a great deal of experience in the myriad aspects of Michael’s work. In the present book he picks out various themes from The Voudon Gnostic Workbook, as well as from the Courses offered by The Monastery of Seven Rays and offers his own insight into them, on the basis of his own experience.” (Michael Staley – Foreword to Voudon Gnosis).
This book is indispensible for anyone interested in Bertiaux’s work, and is a superb book on the Voudon current, in its own right. Beth clearly and concisely elucidates the essence of Bertiaux’s work, and allows those who are interested in working with these energies, a fast way in. There are also many diagrams, illustrations, and full colour plates.
Book has light rubbing to back board else fine.
