Esoteric Egypt

The Sacred Science of the Land of Khem

A study of the 100,000-year-old spiritual science of ancient Egypt

• Examines the metaphysical structure of our universe as seen by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Celts, showing that each is based on the same central concepts from time immemorial

• Reveals that the ancient Egyptians believed in reincarnation and a spiritual evolutionary process

• Explains the connections between the movements of Orion and Sirius and the story of Osiris and Isis, the importance of the Pleiades and circumpolar stars to the Egyptians, and the fundamental unity of the Egyptian pantheon

• Investigates the people who colonized greater Egypt 100,000 years ago, descendants of the Atlanteans

In Esoteric Egypt, J. S. Gordon reveals how the sacred science and wisdom tradition of ancient Egypt--the Land of Khem--stems from an advanced prehistoric worldwide civilization. Examining the metaphysical structure of our universe as seen by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Celts, he shows that each tradition is merely a variation on the central concepts of the precession of the equinoxes and the obliquity of the ecliptic pole. He explores the connections between the cyclical movements of Orion and Sirius and the story of Osiris and Isis, the importance of the Pleiades and the circumpolar stars, and the ancient tradition of man as a divine being “born from the substance of the stars.” He investigates the people who colonized greater Egypt 100,000 years ago, the progenitors of ancient Egyptian civilization descended from the 4th- and 5th-Root Race Atlanteans.

Gordon explores the magical and esoteric meanings behind Egyptian sacred ritual and temple art, drawing parallels to the Mystery School process of initiation. Explaining the fundamental unity of the Egyptian pantheon and the structure of the after-death state, he shows that the Egyptians clearly believed in reincarnation and a spiritual evolutionary process. Revealing the ancient sacred science of the Land of Khem, teachings passed down from the earliest times, he examines the psychospiritual nature of the human being and the function of our spiritual identity and our souls.

J. S. Gordon (1946-2013) held a master’s degree in Western Esotericism from the University of Exeter and was a senior fellow of the Theosophical Society of England, where he lectured on ancient history and metaphysics. Known for his in-depth knowledge on the ancient Egyptian mystical tradition, he wrote several books, including The Path of Initiation and Land of the Fallen Star Gods.

“More than anyone else I’ve known, John Gordon shows a deep insight into the esoteric mind-set of the ancient Egyptians. I fully recommend this book to all who want to understand and relate to ancient Egypt’s spiritual message.”

– Robert Bauval, author of Secret Chamber Revisited, Black Genesis: The Prehistoric Origins of Ancient

“An important investigation into the deep prehistory of ancient Egypt and the lost roots of ancient Egyptian spiritual wisdom.”

– Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods

“In his last book, Esoteric Egypt, the late John Gordon delves deeply into the origin of ancient Egyptian beliefs and explains the mystery of their symbolism about Man and the Cosmos. It was in Egypt that man first recognized his two dimensions: physical and spiritual. While the body dies, the spirit joins the heavenly beings awaiting resurrection.”

– Ahmed Osman, author of The Lost City of Exodus and Moses and Akhenaten
