From the publisher: "In 'PILLARS: The Circle & The Compass' both authors & artists approach the present topic from numerous angles: How will you unearth the reason, or impetus, behind individual or group praxis of either traditional ceremonial magicians or of contemplative mysticism? How will you attempt to bridge the divide, to discover why (or how) there appears to be no more formalized Mystery Tradition(s) out there (and if there are, why have these not yet risen back to the surface?). But what is the Mystery Tradition, standing somewhere between Religion and Magick? What symbolism and allegory exist within these ‘living’ Temples, and in the divine rites of passage? Who are these Seekers willing to live a life in accordance with age-old principum passed down through the generations? These so-called ‘Mystery Traditions’ are possibly the underlying basis and foundational reality behind most contemporary esoteric structure, and yet they are either purposely or casually shunned and dismissed by many practitioners and adepts. By “Circling the Compass,” is the Seeker indeed participating (or somehow resuscitating) in the Traditions of old, or are these disciplines truly lost under the sands of Time?."
