Esoteric WorldViews

Behind the surface reality...

There is not one but many different esoteric metaphysical systems, and often these are quite contradictory, although there is a common thread of Gnosis running through them.  The following is a partial list of a few esoteric world-views and meta-worldviews.

Shamanism
Egyptian
Taoism
Neoplatonism
Gnosticism
Tantra
Islamic Esotericism
Kabbalah
Theosophy
Hermeticism
The New Age movement


With a great many of these spiritual, mystical and occult traditions, there is an unfortunate lack of information available.  Often the writings have not survived, or most of them have yet to be translated into English, or they have been translated, but by someone who does not understand their inner meaning and hence approaches the topic from the position of an outsider, or they are simply too obscure or too mythological in their symbolism.
