Gnostic Myths behind Jung's Theory of Individuation. Both CG Jung and
his spiritual ancestors, the Gnostics, understood that deep within the
human unconscious existed the keys to enlightenment in the
manifestations of myths, archetypes and alchemical symbols. Mankind
has steadily lost these mechanisms for spiritual healing; but they are
ever present and accessible to the individual daring to take the inner
journey of self-knowledge. We adventure into the eternal
psychological side of Gnosticism in order that each one of us may
recover the fundamentals of gnosis that could help the collective
unconscious heal our fractured civilization.

--How the Heresiologist's duality of 'right thinking' (Orthodoxy) and
'wrong choice' (Heresy) were the foundation for the Inquisitional
pathology and Totalitarian mind set for centuries to come.
--How the crusades against the Cathars crystallized the Inquisition
and Totalitarian mind set by creating a system of victimology against
one's own population.
--Clear evidence that many of Totalitarian leaders of the Twentieth
Century were directly influenced by intellectuals who believed in the
Inquisitional model and the dangers of any Gnostic ideology.
--How Gnosticism, from the Classic Ages to modern times, has always
been one of the boogie men for those seeking strict order in their
--Even though religion went from the hunter to the hunted in modern
times, the Inquisitional model was still used with the Gnostics in mind.
--Sifting through the terror of the 'Satanic Panic' of the Eighties
and the secret Christian organizations that to this day are attempting
to quell Freethinkers and the Gnostic revival.
