Conversations from the Edge with David Metcalfe

“I had spent a great deal of time reading about esoteric subjects. Of course I wouldn’t say any of this to my colleagues, they would think I’m crazy. But as a student I read everything I could find about the Rosicrucians and the hermetic philosophers.”

It was my turn to take a deep breath.

“I might as well confess to you that I have spent several years in the same studies,” I finally told Hynek. “Until recently I even followed the Rosicrucian Order.

“Which one?” Asked Hynek.

“AMORC, which is headquartered in San Jose.”

– Jacques Vallee, Forbidden Science: Journals, 1957-1969, p. 228 (North Atlantic Books, 1992)

Grocery store grimoires, psychical research, mail order mysticism and the profound mysteries of everyday magic – Mark Stavish, director of the Institute for Hermetic Studies, and I recently had a broad ranging discussion on the mediation of spiritual practice and the effect this mediation has how the ‘occult sciences’ and esoteric spiritual practices are received in contemporary culture.
