Mysticism After Modernism


Product Description
Product Details


Mitch Horowitz, PEN Award-winning author of Occult America and The Miracle Club says that- "Our spirituality has gotten too tame today. James J. O'Meara has a solution: revive the tradition of the not-so-mad guru, the outlaw seeker, and the rebel swami. In this mosaic of profiles and netherworld journeys, you will encounter primal religious thinkers, from Alan Watts to a man called Neville, who seek, above all, to make the spiritual search powerful, practical, slightly dangerous, and bracingly relevant to the individual. Thank God.""The book could be seen as being itself an example of the subject of one of its essays, Burroughs' cut-up technique, in which O'Meara slices up some sacred texts - and a few sacred cows as well - and rearranges them to suggest new pathways towards the Transcendent. When O'Meara cuts into the esoteric canon, it's just possible that a bit of the Truth leaks out." --John Morgan, New Dawn Magazine
