We recently acquired a fantastic load of hard-to-find metaphysical books. We will be featuring some of them over the next few weeks, or until some lucky seeker comes in and buys them up. We are calling this series, Meetings with Remarkable Books, in homage to that mustachioed mystic, G.I. Gurdjieff. First up: The Science of Mind.
THE SCIENCE OF MIND was written in 1926 by American author Ernest Shurtleff Holmes, well known as founder of the Religious Science movement. The present volume, heavily influenced by the writings of Thomas Troward (whose titles may also be found at Bibliohead) is a foundational text of the movement, a didactic work of practical spiritual instruction, indicating “the technique by which the seeker after truth may obtain freedom from the oppression of a mechanistic civilization.” Seekers-after-truth, BE WARY! Ours is a beautifully maintained copy from 1928 is from the third printing by McBride, New York.
