Blurb from back of book
Ubiquitous throughout human history, the serpent has been with us in many forms and guises, wending its way into our earliest rituals and imaginings.
With the serpent as guide, chaos alchemist Anton Channing explores the alchemical, mystical, magical and mythological symbols of the path to illumination found throughout the world’s mystery schools and religions. A journey that spans the practises of meditation, contact with spirits, astral journeys to the heavens and the underworld, sexual mysteries, entheogenic sacraments and the discovery of one’s own true will.

“I started falling in love with this book as it came out of the packaging. It’s tight, and has good, heavy cover stock and glossy high-quality pages. The cover art (an interpretation of Baphomet within an ouroboros) is a feast for the eyes and mind…
While Channing works from a chaos magic tradition (note how that’s not an oxymoron any more), he is clearly well-versed in Hermetic symbolism and ancient mythology…
The text flows very well, and sometimes the topics meander a bit, but I like that in an esoteric book…
The illustrations are outstanding…
This book would not be out of place in any esoteric library.” ~ , Spiral Nature.
