21st Century Rosicrucianism
When the original Rosicrucian pamphlets were circulated between 1614 and 1617 they sent a shockwave across Europe that instigated a flurry of activity and changed the course of Western Esotericism. That they still resonate 400 years later is testament to the essential truth in the message of Love, Light and Healing that they contained. What is it about these manifestos, the traditions they were influenced by, and the movement that they spawned that still speaks to us? What does Rosicrucianism look like in the 21st-century and how can it be practiced by aspirants today? How is the context of the modern world similar to that of the original, anonymous authors and what new challenges do we face that speak to the same need for spiritual liberation in a new era?
With 20 years of experience in a variety of Rosicrucian orders, the author has put forward an authentic vision of how the Rosicrucian tradition speaks directly to the needs of todays world. Not only in how we understand the works of the past, but how individual aspirants might be able to incorporate its teachings and world view into their daily lives as a movement that remains relevant and meaningful.
Avoiding doctrine and cosmology in favour of an open and honest portrayal of a modern life lived in the spirit, this book presents a new way of viewing the Rosicrucian tradition so that we might each embrace our own living embodiment of the eternal relationship between humanity and its creator.
