The most popular occult work of the twentieth century--now in a hardbound edition that evokes the original volume, with a new introduction by scholar of mysticism Richard Smoley. For generations, readers have debated the origins and studied the knowledge of this mysterious exploration of Hermetic wisdom, attributed to "Three Initiates." Now in its second century, The Kybalion is restored to hardcover in a beautiful vegan-leather casing with gold stamping, acid-free paper, gold-foil page edges, and a red ribbon place marker. This commemorative volume evokes the appearance of the occult landmark's first edition. The new introduction by Richard Smoley, a celebrated scholar of mystical traditions, makes this a historical keepsake.
The Kybalion: Hermetic Philosophy is a book claiming to be the essence of the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus. We take great pleasure in presenting to the attention of students and investigators of the Secret Doctrines this little work based upon the world-old Hermetic Teachings. There has been so little written upon this subject, not withstanding the countless references to the Teachings in the many works upon occultism, that the many earnest searchers after the Arcane Truths will doubtless welcome the appearance of this present volume. The purpose of this work is not the enunciation of any special philosophy or doctrine, but rather is to give to the students a statement of the Truth that will serve to reconcile the many bits of occult knowledge that they may have acquired, but which are apparently opposed to each other and which often serve to discourage and disgust the beginner in the study. Our intent is not to erect a new Temple of Knowledge, but rather to place in the hands of the student a Master-Key with which he may open the many inner doors in the Temple of Mystery through the main portals he has already entered. There is no portion of the occult teachings possessed by the world which have been so closely guarded as the fragments of the Hermetic Teachings which have come down to us over the tens of centuries which have elapsed since the lifetime of its great founder, Hermes Trismegistus, the "scribe of the gods," who dwelt in old Egypt in the days when the present race of men was in its infancy. Contemporary with Abraham, and, if the legends be true, an instructor of that venerable sage, Hermes was, and is, the Great Central Sun of Occultism, whose rays have served to illumine the countless teachings which have been promulgated since his time. All the fundamental and basic teachings embedded in the esoteric teachings of every race may be traced back to Hermes. Even the most ancient teachings of India undoubtedly have their roots in the original Hermetic Teachings.

In 7 Steps to Healing and Wellness, Dr. Nalani has effectively fused the ancient Kemetic philosophy of the Kybalion, holistic nutrition and the application of Essential Oils into a practical, wonderfully informative, easily understood resource for everyone on the natural healing path.
First published in 1908 under the anonymous authorship of "Three Initiates" by the Yogi Publishing Society, The Kybalion expounds upon the veiled teachings of Hermes Trismegistus in layman's terms for the first time since the work was rediscovered in the 19th Century. In the study of Esoteric texts such as The Kybalion, individuals can gain powerful insights into themselves and the world. Freemasonry assists each member in the work of self-improvement, which can be greatly enhanced by understanding the nature of reality. This statement, however, begs the question: "What is the fundamental nature of reality?" The underlying teaching of The Kybalion is that everything is governed by seven universal laws. These laws are categorized in the book as the Principles of Mentalism, Correspondence, Vibration, Polarity, Rhythm, Cause and Effect, and Gender. The Kybalion explains that by examining these principles, and applying them to life, scholars can increase their wisdom and knowledge.
The Kybalion is a study of basic hermetic teachings that outline an ageless wisdom. In ancient times these teachings were not understood by the lay person, but were readily understood by students, after the axioms and principles had been explained and exemplified by the Hermetic Initiates and Masters to their Neophytes.

You have natural magical abilities that can elevate your life to a whole new level, as well as heal and help your loved ones and clients. The original teacher of this Divine magic was an Egyptian sage named Hermes Trismegistus. His teachings, called "Hermetics," were only taught verbally or in very cryptic writings. In 1908, three Hermetic students wrote these teachings in a book called The Kybalion. Yet, this book was still difficult to understand because of its archaic and confusing language. Now in Divine Magic, Doreen Virtue presents a clearly edited version of The Kybalion, written in understandable and modern language. She gives comments and practical suggestions based upon her own success in using Hermetic teachings for healing and manifestation. With Divine Magic, you can master your moods, release negativity, manifest new levels of abundance, and attract wonderful opportunities in all areas of your life. Includes a meditative audio download!
This gem-like, concise anthology provides thoughtful people with both an introduction to the paranormal and a reason to take a fresh look at it. Nostradamus...channeling...Atlantis...divination. Most serious people consider such topics nonsense. But look again. Writing with intellectual verve and a deeply critical mind, religious thinker Richard Smoley explores and reconsiders the supernatural in history and today. We are often conditioned to think of the Judeo-Christian tradition as the only valid, historically accurate, and rational spiritual philosophy. Occultism, magic, and the esoteric are, by contrast, considered illegitimate, delusional, and lacking in intrinsic worth. Supernatural challenges this prejudice, revealing that Western occult traditions are richer and more historically impactful than most of us imagine. The book reveals hidden diamonds and neglected ideas that characterize the magical tradition in the West. For any reader, at any level of experience, who has ever been curious about an arcane subject – from psychical powers to secret societies – here is a book that gives a complete yet precise, critical, yet serious, and always respectful account of topics from the unseen world. Supernatural is a brilliant primer to the occult and magical traditions of the West. Praise for RICHARD SMOLEY “I have a standing rule: I read anything Richard Smoley writes.” —Larry Dossey, M.D. “Smoley . . . is adept at unknotting the paradoxes of spiritual traditions and making new connections across centuries and languages.” —Library Journal “He is one of the liveliest, most intrepid, and most gifted explorers of the spiritual landscape writing today.” —Ptolemy Tompkins, author of Paradise Fever
