A biographical account of the  'initiations', both occult and mystical, of a Paris doctor in 19th century Paris. 

This book follows the esoteric encounters and learnings of a Paris doctor from his mysterious friend Andreas, plus the enigmatic background presence of Theophane, the true healer. Presented in a deceptively simple narrative form, it distils and encodes a lifetime's esoteric and mystical knowledge in a way which serves as a very real initiation for the perceptive reader.

It explains in the simplest way, how one can reach into the ultimate depths of the human soul, all the problems dealing with modern and ancient occult philosophy and spiritual searching, as well as social and political conundrums of this and probably also future periods.

Translated from the French by the noted hermeticist and mystic, Mouni Sadhu.

About the author

By (author) Paul Sedir

Paul Sédir was one of the most important figures of the late 19th century occult renaissance in France, and yet he remains very little known in the English-speaking world. Born Yvon Le Loup in 1871, the young Breton moved to Paris and took up occultism as a teenager under the patronage of Papus (Gérard Encausse). Blessed with an exceptional memory and intuition, he embraced a diversity of paths and quickly rose through the ranks of a wide range of esoteric fraternities, authoring a number of books. From his home in Montmartre he held weekly open discussions on occultism and was well known for his exceptional knowledge and powerful presence. In later life, a significant mystical encounter led him to resign from his occult activities and focus solely on a Christian mystical path. Adopting the name Sédir (an anagram of 'désir'), he began writing his important work Initiations around 1901, and expanded it gradually over the following twenty-five years until his death in 1926.
