The accompanying music for this meditation is also by Frater Gautier.
This podcast features an article from the December 2010 Mithraic Mysteries issue of the Rosicrucian Digest. One of the pioneering esoteric scholars of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, G.R.S. Mead (1863–1933) brought wider attention to many ancient materials, including this ritual which some scholars dismiss, and others cautiously believe retains some Mithraic elements.
Grand Master Julie Scott’s message in this podcast explores the value and importance of Ritual, and how Rituals acknowledge significant transformations and rites of passage in life’s journey. She discusses Ritual in our daily lives, the history of Ritual, and esoteric Rituals, including those of the Rosicrucian tradition.
