Our civilisation is in crisis. As we confront ecological collapse, political control, wars of terror, and wars on consciousness, XVI proposes gnostic strategies for liberation. We seek emergence from this state of emergency.
Sixteen essays from contemporary occult practitioners that reveal a creative and passionate engagement with the world. Attacks on our freedoms can lead to freedom, the sudden enlightenment, the lightning path and the initiatory crisis that the tower also represents.
XVI seeks to raise magical awareness of the unique times we find ourselves in, whilst being open to the resourcefulness and indominatable nature of the human spirit to find solutions and responses to it.
