The Quest For Hermes Trismegistus with Gary Lachman

Night-Light Radio

From the sands of Alexandria via the Renaissance palaces of the Medicis, to our own times, this spiritual adventure story traces the profound influence of Hermes Trismegistus -- the 'thrice-great one', as he was often called -- on the western mind. For centuries his name ranked among the most illustrious of the ancient world. Considered by some a contemporary of Moses and a forerunner of Christ, this almost mythical figure arose in fourth century BC Alexandria, from a fusion of the Egyptian god Thoth and the Greek god Hermes. Master of magic, writing, science, and philosophy, Hermes was thought to have walked with gods and be the source of the divine wisdom granted to man at the dawn of time. Gary Lachman has written many books exploring ancient traditions for the modern mind. In The Quest for Hermes Trismegistus, he brings to life the mysterious character of this great spiritual guide, exposing the many theories and stories surrounding him, and revitalizing his teachings for the modern world. Through centuries of wars, conquests and religious persecutions, the fragile pages of the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus have still survived. This is a book for all thinkers and enquirers who want to recover that lost knowledge and awaken a shift in human consciousness.

Gary Lachman: Caretakers of the Cosmos

Zeitgeist with Zack Geist

"What is a caretaker of the cosmos?" One of the first questions posed to author Gary Lachman in this episode of Zeitgeist with Zack Geist. Among his 20+ books, Gary wrote ‘The Caretakers of the Cosmos: Living Responsibly in an Unfinished World.’ and joins Zack to explore the author's central tenet: that humans are entrusted with a daunting task of repairing creation itself. The theory positions us as mediators between dual realms, one of time & space versus our spiritual world that enfold one another. Each person's accountability is then two-fold, to care for our material world while simultaneously exploring the inner realm of pure spirit/imagination. Join Zack and Gary in exploring the lofty question, "Why are we here?"
