Our 3rd convergence of the 22 Teachings Book Club features a work by one of the most prolific and important occult authors modern history, Manly P. Hall.

Manly Palmer Hall (1901-1990) was a Canadian-born author and mystic. He is perhaps most famous for his work The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy. In 1934, Hall founded the Philosophical Research Society (PRS) and in his lifetime he delivered over 8000 lectures and wrote 150 books.

We have chosen his book MAN: The Grand Symbol of the Mysteries to explore over 5 weeks together in discussion, sharing and deep discovery.

The byline of the book has changed over the years from “Gems in Occult Anatomy” to “Thoughts in Occult Anatomy”, to “Essays…” We like “Gems”…

because that is what this book is, shining insights into the microcosm of the human being, the subtle bodies, the pineal gland, the relationship of the organs to the planets, the meridians to the cosmic maps, and an incredible synthesis of teachings from alchemy and grimoire magic while also exploring eastern mysticism as well.

It covers everything from Pythagoras to Paracelcus, Leonardo DaVinci, Egyptian mythos, Boehme, Kundalini and Hindu teachings and so much more. There is truly something in there for everyone.

We’ve decided to slow down the pace for this book because it is so rich with wonders, and will meet 5 times rather than the previous sessions 3. The chapter layout will be as follows:

Aug 15th chapters 1-3  Please have read these chapters by the 15th and be ready to share!

Aug 22nd chapters 4-7

Aug 29th chapters 8-10

no meeting on Sept 5th

Sept 12th chapters 11-14

Sept 19th chapters 15-18

Any late registrants will receive the audio recorded from any prior meetings.

The book is available online through our affilitate link here:  https://ao/3SyLumzn.t1V

Price to attend is $15 and will grant you access to all 5 weeks.

As always with our bookclub, we record audio only, no video, and this is sent to everyone who is signed up. We do not sell the audio later on the website. This is a participation based event, designed for all to share and feel safe to ask questions, share experiences and learn together.

This discussion will be facilitated by professional Tarot Reader, ceremonial magician, and long-time student of 22 Teachings Jessica Chappell of Tarot de Baja

Jessica will reach out to everyone signed up a few days in advance of week 1 to check in.

Jessica has always been a seeker. Her journey into the metaphysical began at a young age where she started collecting crystals and working with the tarot. For 6+ years she’s been a student of 22 Teachings. She looks at reading tarot as a way to explore our human experience through hidden knowledge and a way to connect with our higher selves to receive clarification, confirmation, and the nudge required to make the changes our souls are secretly craving. A recently retired techie, she opened a tarot salon called Tarot de Baja in Todos Santos, Mexico and is doing tarot readings full time.
