There are two quite different sides to Gann analysis, the deeply theoretical, seeking to understand the essence of the science behind Gann’s market theory, the Law of Vibration, and the outright practical, looking for working tools and techniques that will help with applied trading. Though our greatest interest is in the cosmological theory behind Gann’s work, and the universe in general, we also specialize on the practical tools that traders need to specifically analyze and trade the markets. Some Gann experts excel at theory, while others are simply practical traders who are less focused on ideas in deference to trading techniques. This category will specifically focus upon the books and courses that provide very specific and applied tools from Gann’s toolbox used for real time trading. Some may explore deeper theoretical principles and some may just focus on pure trading tools, but this category will give working techniques to better fill the arsenal of any trader. We often recommend that new Gann students focus first on developing a practical trading ability, so that they can fund their future research with profits from their trades, and then also apply new insights from their theoretical study to their practical trading as they advance. This section will help to identify those most practical tools.
Dan Ferrera is one of the most respected market analysts and educators in the Gann field. For 20 years his works have been some of the most popular in our catalog. Aside from being one of the clearest interpreters of Gann, he also has produced his own advanced work, The Spirals of Growth & Decay, developed prior to his analysis and presentation of Gann’s theories. For those seeking a solid, Master’s Degree level education in technical Gann analysis, we cannot recommend anything more highly than Ferrera’s works.
Ferrera has written detailed course on every angle of Gann’s work and provides a fast track into a deep understanding of each field of Gann’s work as well as advanced topics in technical analysis. He has works on cycles analysis, Gann’s Square of 9, Gann’s Mass Pressure Charts, one on risk management and Gann’s swing trading system, another on the details of Gann’s complex geometrical and mathematical tools, one on astrological Bible interpretation, on teaching how to create yearly forecasts like his own yearly Outlooks, which give a prediction for each year, and more. If you are wanting to get a first taste of Gann and to save yourself years of hard work putting together his ideas, Ferrera is a perfect place to start, and walking through his series of fantastic is like getting a Master’s degree in Gann and technical analysis.
W.D. Gann Works
W. D. Gann’s private courses represent the most important of all of Gann’s writings, and go into much greater detail than his public book series, with which most people are only acquainted. They should be carefully studied in their full detail, as they contain the deepest insights into Gann’s theories ever presented. Stock traders must be sure to study all the commodity courses and vice versa, since Gann often put techniques that applied to all markets in only one or another course.
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann, both his courses and books. Our set of Gann’s courses were initially collected and compiled by Dr. Baumring and Donald Mack in the 1980’s from dozens of original rare private course that were distributed by Gann throughout his career. Many people mistakenly think that Gann just wrote two courses called the Master Stock Course and Master Commodity Course. This couldn’t be further from the truth! Each of Gann’s “courses” were actually small, “sections” of a few pages to a few dozen pages, individually bound in paper folders. These various pieces were then compiled into different sets which he sold as various collections at different prices to different students over the decades. Some were more commonly sold to all students, while other were more secretive and sold only to close private students who often signed non-disclosure agreements, and paid exorbitantly high prices. It is these rarest pieces that make the difference between one collection and another.
The later courses Gann sold in the 1940’s and that he “called” the Master Courses were nothing but various compiled collections of these smaller pieces, and would vary according to who purchased them and what price they paid, and were never set until after Gann’s death when purchased by Ed Lambert. For instance, there are pieces that Gann advertised in the 1950’s as “new” like his Master Mathematical Formula for Market Predictions, or his rare #3 Master Time Factor Course which were never included in his “Master Courses”, and similarly were never included with any of the Lambert Gann courses sold by Lambert or the Jones’ from the 60’s until now. So these “master” courses are and have always been incomplete collections. Further, the Lambert Gann courses sold by Billy Jones through the turn of the century, were retyped and re-edited by Billy so that they did not provide the original unadulterated content that Gann produced, making them unreliable, edited versions. Our editions are exact facsimiles of the original copies sold by Gann, with no editing or adulteration of any kind.
Our 6 Volume set of Gann’s Collected Writings was further supplemented by new finds of rare pieces, like those mentioned above, rediscovered by the Institute over the past 30 years since Baumring’s death, and comprises the most complete and the only properly organized set of courses that are available. Gann has very particular sets that he sold only to his higher end clientele, placed in specific order to provide a particular logic to his work. Our collection maintains this order and includes a further collection of rare and historical courses, letters and private materials which make our collection the most complete and important collection available. Serious students of Gann should beware most “supposed” collections of Gann’s writings as most are unauthorized, incomplete, and distorted representations of his work, and cannot be trusted. Our set it the most reliable set of Gann’s unadulterated and most important work available…
While W.D. Gann’s own original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher’s collection, most people will find Gann’s work to be extremely vague, complicated and difficult to penetrate on their own. In our experience, it can take many years, if not decades for the ordinary analyst to, by themselves, digest and apply the deeper techniques of Gann’s, without significant help by well-seasoned analysts and traders who have dedicated years to decoding and creating practical tools from Gann’s techniques. This is why there is a fundamental and valuable secondary market of works presenting and developing Gann’s ideas, and making them accessible to any trader. We believe that the best teachers in this field are not competitors, but are fellow contributors to an ongoing field of research, and that their work is mutually supportive and will provide expanded insights when more material is understood.
We maintain the largest collection of secondary works on Gann Theory of anyone in the field. Many of these books we publish ourselves, and are written by top Gann experts and experienced Gann traders from across the world. However, we also review works written by other Gann experts across the field, and add to our catalog any material we consider to be of high quality and importance from the global community of Gann analysts. With our experience in the field, we are well qualified and to provide a peer review of these materials, so as to filter out the best quality work from that of a lower caliber, and then present these to our clientele who demand the highest standards. So any book or course that you find in this catalog can generally be considered to be of the upper echelon of works on Gann analysis. We have new authors submit their research to us ongoingly, so that we are always adding new items to our catalog with fresh insights, alternative techniques or new ideas. In this way we are able to save our clients significant wasted funds in exploring the territory at their own cost.
Our collection of metaphysical books is quite unlike any other out there. There is a long history to the development of our catalog that has developed over 75 years, creating one of the most valuable and unique collections of specified material every compiled. It began with a pursuit of the work of the great financial analyst, esotericist, Freemason, and astrologer, W. D. Gann, who was able to forecast financial markets better than anyone in history using his metaphysical theories of the Law of Vibration. Gann himself produced a Recommended Reading List of over 90 books (see below) on astrology, numerology and general esoterics where provided key elements in his forecasting system.
In the 1980’s Dr. Jerome Baumring, who created the most advanced course on Gann’s Law of Vibration then added his own exceptional list of metaphysical and scientific works that he required for the study of his own seminar course series and for his private students, adding 100’s of important books in many important metaphysical and scientific fields which influence the financial market. More of these books are listed in our Scientific Category list, creating the most complete collection of important metaphysical source works in the fields of universal causation and cosmology available anywhere.
In the 30 years since Baumring’s passing, the Sacred Science Institute collected a 15,000 volume collection of rare metaphysical and scientific books with a particularly focus upon esoteric cosmology and the esoteric and scientific systems of the ancient and modern world. Through the Sacred Science Translations Society, a series of important metaphysical and scientific source works in cosmology and advanced scientific esoterics were also translated into English for the first time. We think that our catalog of metaphysical and esoteric works provides the most comprehensive and valuable coverage of the subject of esoteric cosmology, causation and universal influence of any resource out there.
The Great or Royal Art of the medieval and enlightenment philosophers was not only the origin of what is known as modern chemistry, but contains wisdom far beyond the modern vulgar science which derived from it. Alchemy originates in Ancient Egypt, know to the Arabs as Kemi, the Black Lands, so Al-Kemi means “of Egypt”. This great wisdom is both an advanced cosmological wisdom as well as a science of transmutation, both of base metals into gold, but also of base man into spiritual man. Often communicated through complex symbology, Alchemy is almost impossible to penetrate by all but the most dedicate practitioners. Sir Isaac Newton was a sworn Alchemist, and it is from this science that his public knowledge derived as “chips off the woodblock” of his deeper work. Our collection of works on the subject will help to give deeper access to the hidden wisdom and knowledge of this great mystery tradition.
Systems of Influence of the Cosmic Energies on Man
Modern astronomy is the bastard child of the true “logic of the cosmos” Astrology. The great proponents of modern astronomy were ALL students of the Astrological arts, from Ptolemy, to Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Tyco Brahe, and Newton. The relationship between cosmos and man is a critical science studied by all intelligent men of yore, though thrown aside by modern thinkers as mere superstition. How wrong such modern thinkers are! The books in this section will educate the true seeker of knowledge in this ancient and important art that links human consciousness and cosmos, though a symbiotic energetic connection which is as yet, beyond the understanding of modern academic scientism…
The great ancient civilizations of the past have much to teach man of today. Sadly, the history of these great ancient cultures has been perverted and misrepresented by the annals of academia, whose closed minds fail to acknowledge the great works accomplished, many of which are beyond modern technological attainment today. The great monuments like the pyramids and temples of yon, so far exceed the technological sophistication of modern architecture, that moderns can only ignore the facts in order to maintain their sanity. The cosmological systems embedded in the Canon Cosmologies of the ancients understand sciences that are not even considered today. A study of these great cultures of humanity will open the mind to the wisdom of the past, and reorientate ones’ understanding of man’s origins.
The great mystic and occultist Rudolf Steiner, founder of the Waldorf Schools, developed a system of science based upon his psychic perceptions that penetrates the hidden elements of nature and reality. Followers of his systems, like Olive Whicher and George Adams have developed profound systems of order through space and counter space, showing how projective geometry serves as an ordering mechanism for the conduction of energy from the spiritual planes into the material. This is a science that can be easily proven and develops technologies not considered by modern science whose theories miss the realities seen by this system. Students of Gann’s Law of Vibration will find invaluable insights into his system here presented by Dr. Baumring to his students.
The systems of the ancients and of some modern alternative thinkers saw a relationship of universal elements and conjunction of material and mental reality that is not understood by traditional science. These systems of order and energetic connection and propagation of force and energy, have the capability of developing technologies beyond current scientific consideration. Great thinkers like Pythagoras, Tesla, Walter Russell, Schwaller de Lubicz and many more were masters of this wisdom. Our collection here will introduce you to the best of the best of these systems of wisdom.
Ancient Egypt was the greatest civilization of historical record. Academia traces its origins to over 4000 BC, but the actual Egyptian and Greek records tell a different story, tracing its origins back 25,000 – 72,000 years. Egypt possesses some of the greatest architectural achievements of the history of mankind the Great Pyramids being the greatest example, showing a technological knowledge which far surpasses our capabilities today. There are stones in Egyptian monuments which we cannot even move with our biggest cranes. The Temple Wisdom of Ancient Egypt and the Library of Alexandria possessed advanced systems of knowledge ranging across subjects which are all but lost to modern humanity.
This Temple educated many of the most influential figures in Greek society and indeed sowed the seeds of western philosophy, science, religion and more. Pythagoras, Plato and all the great Greek thinkers were strong influenced by Egypt, and the Hermetic sciences laid the groundwork for the Western Esoteric and Scientific Traditions. But Egypt itself presents a mystery, for its oldest remnants in architecture, hieroglyphics and art show a higher evolution than its later developments, showing that Egypt began at its greatest height and deteriorated from there. This means that Egypt represents a legacy from another civilization which has been lost in the annals of time. Our collection of works on Egypt seeks to recover the lost wisdom of this great civilization and to uncover the lost mysteries which it understood.
The tradition of the Freemasons represents one of the great repositories of ancient wisdom preserved and passed down to modern times. The modern origins reach back to the 1700’s probably connected to the Knights Templar, and trace back to the building of the great Gothic Cathedrals, using wisdom lost even today to modern builders. Its rumored origins reach back to Kind Solomon and the building of the temple of Jerusalem, and some say stretch back originally to Ancient Egypt. Esoteric teachings claim that Freemasonry is the religion of the inner planes and is a sort of higher unifying impulse to conjoin the great religious and spiritual teachings of mankind.
Sadly, Freemasonry has more recently been the brunt of much criticism as a result of having been infiltrated in the 1800’s by negative influences, the Bavarian Illuminati, a materialistic, manipulative organization which has worked hard to turn Freemasonry from its spiritual intentions and origins to a world dominating force focused more on materialism gain and political power. Our collection of Freemasonic works filters out these distorting negative forces and seeks the great ancient wisdom that Freemasonry originally intended to preserve.
The magical works of Franz Bardon stand out as an original and powerful set of works intended to set a clear path of initiation through the first 3 levels of the “Book of Wisdom” or Tarot. The first book teaches the internal training of the magician, showing him how to master himself, his mind, emotions and body, develop his higher perceptions and abilities, eventually leading to advanced esoteric capabilities like psychic and astral travel. His second work teaches the science of Magical Evocation, though which the magician can evoke being from nature and the universe for education and experience in the higher planes. His 3rd book teaches the true higher language of the Kaballah, allowing the Magus to communicate with higher beings and use the language of power to accomplish metaphysical works. Frabato presents is a biography and story about Bardon, and there is a collection of Questions & Anaswers as well as some commentaries by friends and students. A powerful and real system of advanced magical education and initiation.
There are many important esoteric and scientific works that have, as yet, not been translated in English which we have in our archives. The books in this section have mostly now been translated by our Translation Society, and we do try to add others that we intend to translate in time so that those who can read those languages can have access to them now, or can refer to the original source works along with our translations.
A Collection of Metaphysical Books Compiled by Gann for His Students
Sometime in the 1940’s Gann published a 2-page list of Books for Sale that he stocked and sold to his students. This list is knows as W. D. Gann’s Recommended Reading list, and it contains about 90 books, some being multi-volume sets, which he considered important enough to stock himself and sell to his students. It is well known by advanced Gann researchers that each one of these books contains some component of Gann’s system of knowledge which his essential for piecing together his system. Many less in the know see them as a list of older books not so important to market analysis, and those people would be quite wrong. Sometimes one book may have just one simple idea that Gann used or concept that was critical to his perspective.
In the 1980’s Dr. Baumring was the first one to compile and reprint a large section of this list, comprising about 70 of the 90 titles, the other 20 of which were simply so rare that they were almost impossible to find. In the 30 years since Baumring’s passing, we have discovered the remaining 20 volumes so that we are in possession of the only complet set of these recommended works in the world. We have release all but the last 4 of them which we will soon add to our catalog. We also include on our list some other good books by the authors on the Gann list, since he did not always list every book they wrote, though they wrote others on the same or similar subjects which were often quite important.
These books fall into 3 categories, Astrology, Numerology, and General Esoteric, comprising metaphysical source works which present key elements behind Gann’s theories. Serious Gann researchers like Dr. Baumring consider it essential for EVERY Gann student to study EVERY work on this list, in order to understand what principle in each work is essential for explaining Gann’s theory. We strongly recommend that any student desiring to study the complete theory of Gann obtain a complete collection of these works for their long term study.
Metaphysical Books Recommended by Dr. Baumring for His Students
Just as Gann compiled a Recommended Reading List for his students, Dr. Baumring also compiled a number of long reading lists for his seminar study course, as well as others for his Private Students. Baumring’s lists were much more comprehensive than Gann, covering all areas of the markets, sciences and metaphysical fields, and including many critical works that one would have expected Gann to have included on his lists, though he did not.
Baumring was an intensive scholar who read 1800 words a minute and had a photographic memory, so he was able to digest books much more quickly than most, and as such, collected a much larger set of source works for his study. Baumring had a 10,000 volume library, though not all those books would have been essential for the research into Gann analysis, but from that larger collection, Baumring still had around 500 books which he referred to at different times to specialize in different topics to greater levels of expertise. Of course, it is not necessary to read all of these books to understand Gann, but those wanting to deeply explore particular fields will find Baumring’s recommendations to be the best out there, since they cover topics that most people are unfamiliar with.
This list comprises the group of metaphysical and esoteric works he selected for his students to study as possessing key elements required for understanding the basis of Gann’s Law of Vibration.
Systems of Science, Magic & Philosophy from Ancient Egypt
Hermetic Science has its origins in the great Temple wisdom of Ancient Egypt. It’s source Hermes, or Thoth in Greek and Egyptian tradition respectively, is a great teacher of humanity, and this knowledge has been passed on through various means, partially through the Hermetic Arcana, a work originally found in Greek and translated by Ficino during the Renaissance, causing a great influence in the western world.
These teachings trace back to Egypt and along with other elements of this great wisdom passed more directly through Initiates into the Egyptian temple like Pythagoras, Solon (Socrates’ teacher) and many more, filtered through many channels to become the basis of Western Philosophy, Science and the foundation of the Esoteric tradition. Subjects which fall under the banner of Hermetic Science would be: Alchemy, Magick, Prophecy, Sacred Geometry, Vibrational Radiesthesia, Energy Systems, Initiation into the Mysteries, and much more. Primary proponents deeply influenced by the Hermetics are: Pythagoras, Plato, Bruno, Newton, Louie XIV - The Sun King, Copernicus, Kepler
Just like other Ancient cultures, the Hebrew culture has great traditions of wisdom and knowledge, the most interesting and esoteric of which is encoded into the Kabbalah. Kabbalah is a system of Jewish mysticism and cosmology, that is considered the highest teachings of the Hebrew wisdom. We do not so much focus upon the mystical teachings as we do the cosmological works in our collection. Elements of this knowledge we consider most important are the systems of mathematical and geometric coding called Gematria, and encoded in systems like the Sephiroth, or Tree of Life.
Gann made use of Kabbalistic number codes throughout his works, and the mathematical order presented by this system derives hidden meanings out of traditional texts like the Bible. The New Testament, in particularly, is filled with Kabbalistic codes giving secret cosmological interpretations. These principles further develop into systems of geometric and astronomical symbolism of great profundity. The Kabbalistic language and symbolism is developed in later Magical traditions and is considered a sort of universal language.
Our collection contains a selection of works on physical development and health, from yoga, to theories of nutrition and the like based upon esoteric ideas and principles developed in different schools and traditions of thought.
India is another of the great ancient civilizations of the world, which possesses extensive traditions of wisdom and knowledge, primarily focused upon the mystical realms as well as the transformational development of the human system and consciousness, like theories of the Chakras, and Kundalini or energy system of the body, that provide key foundations for all spiritual study across the world. For 1000’s of years India has been the center of mastery of meditation and consciousness, and the great sages of this magnificent land have left encyclopedias of esoteric wisdom for us to ponder and practice.
Lesser known are the scientific, mathematical and geometrical traditions of India. Vedic astrology is well known in the west, but systems of Vedic astronomy and cosmology less so. There are also advanced systems of geometry encoded in mandalas and Yantras, geometric symbol systems representing cosmic codes and knowledge, used to encode information for preservation. It’s great texts the Ved are filled with mathematical codes like the Bible is filled with Gematrical codes, unveiling endless layers of wisdom. The Indians had a system of advanced wisdom in practically every field, from spiritual, to health, to architecture, to music, to their dramatic epics. It is the home to many great spiritual traditions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Kashmir Shaivism, and many more. We collect a group of interesting works that explore some of the interesting elements of this great civilization.
Cosmological, Calendric & Time Systems of The Ancient Maya
The Mayans are one of the most intriguing and mysterious civilizations in history. Their knowledge of time and its cycles goes further than any civilization on Earth, including our modern civilization. They had no less than 19 different calendar systems, with time cycles calculated back as far as 4 Billion years. Their complex mathematical systems count cycles and track astronomical information with more advanced skill than our modern science, with understanding of planetary alignments and Galactic information that we are still today attempting to decode.
The civilization built 10’s of thousands of sites, and 100’s of pyramids across central and south America, eventually all but disappearing without a trace, one of the greatest mysteries of recent archeology. Their beautiful and endless pyramids are fascinating in their mystery, in that it is barely known what they were actually used for, though theories such as interdimensional portals and the like do pop up. The has wisdom of psychedelics which they used to access uncommon realms of consciousness, and has systems of the human energetic system parallel to those in India with the Kundalini. A fascinating study filled with unexplained mysteries.
Operational Systems of Higher Human Function & Mastery
The system of Magick in the Western Esoteric tradition represent the only real Western equivalent to the internal training systems that are found in Eastern traditions. However, unlike the Eastern systems which are generally focused more upon attainment of higher states of consciousness and enlightenment, the Western system is focused upon the development of a range of powers and abilities. Such abilities are the mastery of the physical, emotional and mental bodies, control over the 4 elements, Earth, Air, Fire and Water, development of psychic powers of perception and influence, communication with elementals and spirit beings, opening of the 3rd eye, psychic and astral projection, prophecy, reading auras, and much, much more. Correlative systems such as Alchemy develop entire systems of symbolic cosmology and transmutative spiritual psychology, and most such work will incorporate systems of Astrology, Kabbalah and other traditional system so of knowledge known in the west.
Techniques of Higher Consciousness Development & Realization
The most powerful system of mysticism tend to come from the Eastern Traditions, dominated by Hindu Vedanta and Buddhism, followed by the Sufi tradition, considered to be part of Islam, but really extending to earlier times and rebranding itself as Islam took over the region. Judaism has the tradition of Kaballah which represents their primary mystical strains. In Christianity there is less dominant of such a tradition, but it is still found in the great figures like Meister Eckhart, St. Teresa of Avilla, Hildegard von Bingen, Thomas Merton and the like. Protestant Christianity seem to have less focus on mystical revelations, though there are Protestant cross over esotericists who have plumed those depths like Jacob Boehme, the Rosicrucians, and more obscure branches of Christianity like the Gnostics. We collect a small group of works here that have tie ins with other work in our catalog, and plan to expand it in time to represent some of the best figures in each tradition.
The origins of the systems of numerology really date back to the ancient systems of Ancient Egypt, India and Israel. the Hebrew number coding science, Gematria, was woven throughout all the sacred texts of the Semitic religions. The ancient Rg Ved of India is similarly filled with mathematical codes, and Egypt provided the foundational numerical science behind much architectural and artistic encoding of knowledge. Plato was famous for the complex numerical codes found in his Timaeus and Republic and the great Greek scholar Thomas Taylor elaborated the advanced systems of Pythagoras in his Theoretic Arithemetic of the Pythagoreans. Based upon these foundations, modern esoteric tradition has continued to use and develop these systems for encoding hidden information, prophecy and divination, and scientifically as the basis for mathematical ordering systems. More scientific elements of this would fall into the category of Metrology, the science of measure, wherein even the weights and measures we’ve used across the ages are connected with measurements of the Earth.
The term “occultism” has often gotten bad wrap from those who simply don’t understand what it is and fear the unknown. Really, it just means “hidden” or “veiled” knowledge and refers to the various esoteric sciences of the Western Esoteric Tradition, particularly magick, Tarot, astrology, and the like. Probably the best use of the term is made in the Alice Baily works channeled by The Tibetan, Djwhal Khul, wherein they call all esoteric science of the higher planes “occultism”. This would include the school of Theosophy, Anthroposophy, and Hermetics. Our list pulls together a groups of books from these various fields.
A high level spiritual organization developed in the 17th century, composed of some great figures like Robert Fludd and Francis Bacon. Somewhat like the Freemasons, this society developed practice and study of high spiritual ideals, combined with practical magical and cosmological practices incorporating geometric and Kabbalistic systems, and with a Christian connection as well. Legend of the order traces back to the court of Akhnaten, the first monotheist. They were known for their traveling and collecting nad preserving of ancient wisdom and for practical works of healing and helping humanity.
Esoteric Applications of Geometrical Science & Wisdom
What designates the difference between “sacred” geometry and “profane” geometry is its orientation with a particular system of “sacred” natural order which represents the foundational template of the cosmos. Architecture based upon sacred geometry uses very specific ratios and proportions derived from key mathematical relationships known to be perceived as more beautiful than others, such as the phi proportion, .618, called the Divine Proportion, one of the primary templates of ancient architecture. This important ration is to be found throughout nature, in the ordering of the leaves on plants, the number of petals in flowers, the placement of the planets in the solar system, the composition of the spiral arms of the Galaxy, in the relationship of the lengths of each body part to the others. Essentially it is ubiquitous throughout nature as a primary generating and ordering principle.
Similarly, harmonic ratios based upon the harmonious vibrational frequencies of music will be found to dominate sacred geometry, the octave, third, fifth and the like, showing how nature is a form of frozen music. However, these ratios are used not just because of their inherent beauty, but because they also produce energetic effects that are different from other ratios. In the same way that a harmonious musical relationship will cause beauty and pleasure to the ear, which disharmony will cause one to cringe, the structural application of such “divine” frequencies will create energetic results which will give a spaces a “feeling” that is higher and more disposed for higher thought and consciousness. These systems were developed in great depth in antiquity, but have been all but lost today. We have one of the largest collections of these important works in the world, and it is one of our specialties.
History & Knowledge of the Great Secret Societies of the Past
Private groups and organizations that specialized in particularly practices and studies within their groups. These can range from the Freemasons to the Rosicrucians, the Alchemists, Temple Initiates and more….
In the esoteric tradition the use of symbolism as a language or communicative form has been taken to its highest representation. Symbols are used as letter or phrases in other languages to communicate vast expanses of knowledge through a different methodology. Reading the symbols of the ancient systems takes great study and the development of intuitive insight, which can take many years of training. Ultimately, the symbolist learns to read not just symbols, but the world itself as the Grand Symbol of the Mysteries, where esotericists learn to “Read the Book of Nature” by perceiving the inner essence of all things through observation.
The Tarot, also known as the Book of Wisdom has a long and interesting history. The true origins of the deck of cards reaches back into a vague history that is not easy to trace, though it made its first documented appearance in the 1500’s during the Italian Renaissance. Legend says that the cards were initially developed in Ancient Egypt, and that there exists an underground temple where the images of the cards can be seen carved on the walls.
The story goes that as the world was falling into an age of greater darkness and chaos, the Initiates felt it was important that the sacred knowledge of the ancients be preserved and passed down through generations in a simple manner that would guarantee its survival. This sacred knowledge comprised what was called The Book of Wisdom, the grand summation of all wisdom of the Ancients. The wisdom of this book was broken into segments, and symbolically encoded into the cards to be passed down through generations, supposedly by the “gypsies”.
Notice the similarity between the word “gypsy” and Egypt, from which it has been inferred that the origin of the wandering gypsies themselves was Egypt! The gypsies then migrated across the world, carrying with them their deck of cards, used both for playing games, and for reading fortunes, thereby, unknowingly, spreading the Book of Wisdom throughout humanity, without anyone being aware of the true wisdom encoded within this sacred system of knowledge.
Theosophy, a school of esoteric thought developed my Helena Blavatsky in the late 1800’s presented a revival of many lost esoteric traditions to a spiritually hungry society seeking new ideas. It was profoundly influential and man of Gann’s contemporaries, like Sepharial, were closely involved with it or influenced by it. Blavatsky’s work was channeled from higher planes and is filled with fascinating ideas rarely found before. The movement influenced many spinoffs like the Anthroposophy of Rudolf Steiner, the Arcane School and work of Alice Bailey, the teacher Krishnamurti and many more. We make available a collection of Theosophical work that leans more toward their scientific theories and contributions relating to our fields of interest.
Our Unique Translations Into English of Rare Metaphysical Texts
Our series of 7 important books on harmonics and cosmology translated by Ariel and Joscelyn Godwin from French and German. We have 4 works on universal harmonics by Hans Kayser, the Archeometer, a Key to All Science, and The Natural Architecture, the essence of Hermetic and Pythagorean science. Eberhard Wortmann’s Law of the Cosmos is an important work decoding the cosmology of Plato’s Timaeus. These books were brought into English for the first time through our Society, which continues in new forms with many more books to come.
The Canon is an esoteric system of knowledge and cosmology known by the ancient and encoded into their temples, artifacts, art and monuments. The great ancient civilizations possessed a wisdom that had been lost to the modern world, but is hidden in the ancient artifacts and monuments waiting to be read by those “with eyes to see”. Understanding the system of the Canon opens the door to reading all the wisdom of the ancient world. There are more specific Canons, like canons of proportion used by Renaissance artists to draw their figures or to lay out the geometry in their paintings. The Egyptians also had a specific Canon that laid out the grids upon which they designed their art. There are canons of literature, music, architecture and all subjects, which were used to encode this valuable information to be preserved for future times. This category contains books on tehse various types of Canons and helps to learn how to read and understand this important subject.
While most people think of Yoga as the system of physical cultivation developed in India, there are actually many branches and schools of Yoga applied to different system of knowledge and practice. The root of the word Yoga is “yoke” like to yoke a horse to a carriage, meaning these are methods for man to link himself to the Divine. Some different Yogic systems would be: Laya Yoga – Kundalini and energy system, Bhakti Yoga – heart work and love, Raja Yoga – Kingly yoga, generally works on subtleties of the senses, Jnana Yoga – intellectual Yoga, Kriya Yoga – Yoga of the breath, Karma Yoga – selfless service to humanity.
Zen and Chan are the same terms from the Japanese and Chinese systems of Buddhism respectively, but they originate from the Indian work Dhyana, loosely translated in English as “meditation”. Zen is a mind science, a methodology of direct access to the core layers or ground of mind, often called Emptiness (Shunyata). The origin of this tradition is in India, the home of Buddhism, which Allan Watt’s called, “Hinduism stripped for export…” It is a powerful system of personal transformation using meditation and radical mind techniques to snap into different realizations of the nature of reality.
Theoretical Esoteric Cosmology in Western Tradition
Based upon a title of a book written by Hermann Hesse, for which he won the Nobel Prize in literature, this idea is of an underlying symbolic cosmology that is the basis of all science, philosophy, spirituality and thought. Hesse imagines a game created using universal symbols to represent flows of thought or information, in the way that music flows, played like a symphony of mathematical symbols. Ultimately, this is a metaphor for the systems of esotericism and symbolic cosmology that underlie all traditions of knowledge and feed the more external systems of science and psychology.
Metaphysical Systems of Knowledge Encoded Within The Bible
As mentioned under Kaballah, the Hebrew system of Gematria pervades the Bible concealing secondary teaching in a number code read only by initiates into this deeper system of knowledge. This section contains books that gives some tools to and translations of the Bible using these forms of interpretation. WD Gann and George Bayer were two individuals deeply immersed in this form of Biblical decoding, developing systems of mathematics, prediction and astrology out of their readings.
A generalized term for any kind of metaphysical methodology for predicting future events. Examples would be psychic phenomena, reading crystal balls, scrying mirrors, numerology, astrology, and many more such divinatory techniques. These systems are popular amongst esoteric traders and forecasters seeking insight into future events…
Dr. Alexander Goulden
Dr. Goulden takes a different approach to market analysis than most normal traders and educators. As a Cambridge educated scholar, Goulden is interested in deep principles and in exploring the foundations and implications of both trading techniques and the systems behind them. Before he was ever interested in the markets, he was asked by a friend why Gann’s tools and system are considered to be based upon metaphysical principles. He found this question intriguing and engaged in deep research in the field to answer this question. In this process he recreated a new set of tools based upon principles of Ancient Geometry and Celestial Mechanics. His tools are taken from the same sources as Gann’s and are quite powerful, but are slightly different from Gann’s, so that traders often use them as non-correlated cross-confirmation tools giving similar technical indications but from different perspectives.
His work is deep and has many layers of application and exploration that can be derived from it. His latest work on financial astrology, The Secrets of the Chronocrators, looks back to the astrological and astronomical systems of the ancients, reviving the more mathematical and technical astrology of the Great Masters of the medieval and prior times. Exploring principles like Spherical Astronomy and subtle movements of the Solar System, it seeks to develop a more advanced and scientific system of astrology determination as distinguished from the simpler forms that are generally known. It represents a new movement to re-explore the deeper scientific systems of the ancients that were lost in the press towards the development of a purely mechanical science.
Goulden is a superb educator and the most active Forum moderator that we have seen, with each of his Forums for his courses having 1000’s of posts with detailed questions and answers, deviling deeply into further and new fields of research beyond what is presented in his courses. His Online Forums serve as an advanced classroom where the details of his theories are discussed and elaborated and where students share their research and work with each other while overseen by Goulden, who continually presents new ideas and suggestions.
Hasbrouck Space and Time
One of our great historical discoveries is the Hasbrouck Space-Time Archives, a collection of rare research materials and forecast letters lost for over 30 years. This research develops a new theory of market influence based upon Solar Field Force Theory that was developed during the birth of the space age. The Hasbroucks were deeply connected to the esoteric and financial market communities from the 1920’s through the 1970’s, and contributed a new and recontextualized presentation of information taken from older original esoteric sources. They present a new field of study of solar phenomena, space weather prediction, earthquake prediction and market forecasting.
Muriel Hasbrouck was the inspiring force behind the research, which a foundation in Theosophy and trained as a classical pianist, she pursued an interest in original source works in astrology, through the turn of the 19th century into the early 20’s. She studies with greats like Walter Russell, Paul Foster Case, Aleister Crowley, and Israel Regardie within the esoteric fields. In the market realms she was close with many of the great analysts of her day like Edson Gould, Edward Dewey, Hamilton Bolton, SA Nelson, and more. She and her husband Louis produced a well-received forecasting letter for 30 years called Space Time Forecasting of Economic Trends, and are now quite famous for forecasting the exponential bull market of the 90’s and subsequent crash 50 years in advance! Their theories of Solar influence upon human and earthly experience through geomagnetic influences still lie at the cutting edge of scientific speculation.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this entire website is based. Baumring is the only known modern person to have cracked the code behind WD Gann’s system of trading and market order. However, even further, Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration. There is absolutely no other Gann teaching that goes anywhere near as deep as Baumring’s work, or that even so much as attempts to approach the core ideas developed by Baumring. This study is for those who are interested in the mysteries behind the markets and the ordering system behind the universe itself. This is the study of cosmological theory on its deepest level, and of the interaction between man and the cosmos in which he lives, explored through an examination of causation and propagation of forces in the financial markets.
Dr. Baumring’s course program is not easy, and should not be approached without the willingness to commit at least a few years to the study. It is a long and detailed course, requiring the equivalent level of research and difficulty as most PhD programs, but in the field of Gann Analysis, which is not taught at any university. It requires many years of challenging work including the reading of many dozens (if not 100’s) of books required to develop the foundations needed to understand Gann’s approach to the markets. It is a very serious study that should only be approached by those willing to dedicate themselves to intense thinking and vast research across many fields of knowledge including: astronomy, biology, physics, finance, cycles, wave mechanics, geometry, mathematics, astrology, numerology, number theory, numerous esoteric and alternative scientific theories, and much, much more. Baumring summarized his system by the term “Numerical Astrophysics” in an attempt to give a modern name to an ancient theory that Gann himself had discovered.
Of all the analysts and traders we have known, the most advanced have all come to their understanding through following the lead of Dr. Baumring, or through having gone through a similar and parallel study and path of research to his. His teachings represent the “best of the best” of all material on Gann publicly available, but it will not give up its secrets to a mere superficial perusal. Baumring does not spell out simple explanations of how Gann’s techniques work, but rather leads his students into the depth of the science behind the system, while slowly elaborating how the techniques build upon this deeper science. For those seeking a fast path to the application of Gann exoteric trading principles, this is NOT it! Baumring’s work is not merely some market trading program, and indeed if approached this way may be found to be dissatisfactory.
Baumring himself often said to his students, “If you only are looking to make money, don’t bother studying Gann, it’s too difficult. Simply study swing trading systems, risk management and options strategies, and you can make all the money you want to make.” (Note: we have excellent books on these alternatives…) There are much easier and more direct methods to learn to effectively trade the markets than studying Gann. Those in more of a hurry to apply Gann’s work to trading may want to begin with the work of Ferrera or one of our most applied analysts, like Prandelli or Gordon Roberts, and save the Baumring work for a later time to explore at your leisure.
