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.
The Sacred Science Translation Society & Sacred Science Preservation Foundation Translating Rare Source Works Into English Uncovering The Lost Mysteries Of The Ancient Traditions
About the Translation Society
The Institute of Cosmological Economics is proud to be affiliated with The Sacred Science Translation Society & Sacred Science Preservation Foundation. These translation endeavors share relationship to ICE through mutual origins in the Sacred Science Institute.
The projects of the Translation Society and Preservation Foundation seek to translate – into English – the world’s rarest occult and esoteric source works; whose purpose is to unearth the lost mysteries and previously hidden universal wisdoms that are housed within ancient cultures and traditions. The most exact and high quality translations have been undertaken in collaboration with Ariel & Joscelyn Godwin, in Which Ariel would produce the translations under the oversight of his father, Joscelyn, Professor of Music at Colgate University, one of the most respected scholars and translators of works in these fields. The Translation Society plans to translate all the works of Hans Kayser (12 more volumes) and Wortmann, as well as Von Thimus' works on Pythagorean Harmonics, and Francis Warruin’s works on Kepler, and Wronski.
Translation Society Titles Available Through the ICE Bookstore
We proudly sell all Translation Society titles on this website. For more information on the Translation Society read the preface below. For book and author details read the Author introductions at the bottom of this page or or click on the following links:
For a more thorough exposition of the Translation Society's origins and mission we encourage you to read the Translation Society Series introduction:
For many years we have been in possession of a number of important esoteric, scientific and cosmological source works in various languages, which we always dreamed of having translated into English. The Sacred Science Translation Society began with the inspiration of an anonymous Angel Benefactor, who offered to support the majority of our first project, the translation of Hans Kayser's Textbook of Harmonics.
While considering our options to produce the most exact, and highest quality translations possible, we were extremely fortunate to connect with Ariel & Joscelyn Godwin, and to establish an ongoing relationship with them in which Ariel would produce the translations, under the oversight of his father, Joscelyn, Professor of Musicology at Colgate University, one of the most respected scholars and translators of works in these fields.
Following the first generous contribution, we were able to recruit a handful of our most serious supporters, and received further funding from our initial Angel Benefactor, along with a large donation from another Angel, allowing us to continue with the translations of Natural Architecture, by Petrus Talemarianus, and The Law of the Cosmos, by Eberhard Wortmann.
With the completion and release of these initial works, the Sacred Science Translation Society morphed through several experimental stages, attempting to determine the best means to find continued support for further translation projects. The difficulty in finding such support primarily lies in the problem that there are, unfortunately, only a small number of people who seem, at this point, to appreciate and value these complex, technical, esoteric texts.
Our current strategy, which has developed over the last few years, is to use the funds produced by the sale of these initial books, and each progressive translation, to fund each next title on the development list. Initially we tried to develop a subscription format, where members of the Translation Society would purchase each progressive book, at a member discount, as it was released. However, this became difficult, as different members tended to want only specific titles, and not every book in the series, forcing us to alter our strategy. What we have now decided to do, is to simply release every title as it is complete, each at one flat price, and consider anyone who purchases any of the translations as a supporter and Member of the Sacred Science Translation Society.
There is no longer any requirement for membership in the society, other than to support it through purchasing only one title, or all, as one so desires. We will then compile the combined funds produced by all of these sales, and continue to dedicate them to the translation of further titles on the development list.
Our Publication Process
Our publication process begins with the release of each title in our suede, hardcover, print on demand, Translation Society Edition, which we consider a pre-release format, allowing us to make this important material available as soon as the translation is complete. Beginning with this format is necessary due to the complex nature of some of these texts, with their numerous diagrams and technical details, which often need further editing, formatting, and minor corrections.
In the future, we will then re-release each work in a high-quality, Collector's Edition, once every detail has been perfected and triple checked, with the help of Translation Society Members. All Translation Society Members who purchased an initial Translation Society Edition of any title, will be given the opportunity to upgrade to the new Collector's Edition of that title for a marginal fee to help cover the printing cost of the new quality edition.
This allows us to release this important material immediately for those anxious to begin studying the work while also later providing members with a beautiful Collector's Edition, at a lesser cost than the final edition will be for those who wait. Sometime after the release of the Collector's Edition, we will then produce a less expensive Student's Edition, probably in a smaller format soft-cover, for those who cannot afford the higher cost of the Collector's Edition.
We are now in the 15th year since the birth of the Sacred Science Translation Society, and are happy to announce that we have now created a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation, The Sacred Science Preservation Foundation, which will take over the work of the Translation Society and which will not be able to apply for grant money for this work and also will be able to accept tax-deductible cheritable donations for our translation work.
As of 2017, we have already completed the translation of the following works:
Hans Kayser - The Harmonic Division Canon (Released, June, 2010)
Hans Kayser - Harmonia Plantarum (Released June, 2010)
Herman von Barvalle - Descriptive Geometry (Release forthcoming)
Herman von Barvalle - Geometry as the Language of Form (Release forthcoming)
Hans Kayser - Akroasis: The Theory of the World Harmonic (Release forthcoming)
Our continuing translation plans are to work through the entire series of Hans Kayser's work, another 12 volumes, and also to probably attempt Von Thimus' 2 volume work on Pythagorean Harmonics, which inspired the work of Hans Kayser.
We are considering translating the work of Francis Warrain, beginning with his 3 volume work on Kepler, and his 3 volume work on Wronski, and perhaps his work on Charles Henry. When we find further funding, we would like to translate the original work of Charles Henry and Rene Hoenne-Wronski as well. There is an entire French school of esoteric science that is practically unknown in English since it's never been translated, which is worth preserving.
Eventually, we would like to translate Robert Fludd's 2 volume Magnum Opus, the Cosmographia, and potentially explore the works of Athanasius Kircher and Raymond Llull and Giordano Bruno. A newer addition to our list is the work of Branislav Petronijevic, particular his Principels of Metaphysics, which is a geometrical cosmology similar to that of Bruno's, which influenced Einstein, and provides the foundations for Gann's Law of Vibration.
We will always be open to suggestions of other titles by Translation Society Members, and will continue to search for other interesting works of a similar content and importance. We hope to be able to continue our relationships with top translators, like Joscelyn Godwin, and others in the scholarly field.
We welcome any and all charitible contributions to the The Sacred Science Preservation Foundation will allow these great historical works to remain in the public medium and be appreciated by intellectual students and scholars for centuries to come. Such participation not only provides access to these great masterpieces, but can provide a sense of honor to have contributed to the funding of these projects, thereby being directly responsible for helping to preserve some of the highlights of Western Civilization for the future of humanity...
I would like to express my warmest and most heartfelt thanks to all those who have and will participate in helping to support this vision.
Sincerely, William Bradstreet Stewart, Director Institute of Cosmological Economics The Sacred Science Preservation Foundation
Translation Society Authors
Hans Kayser was born on April 1, 1891, in Buchau am Federsee, Germany.
He was a contemporary of the great W. D. Gann and they shared interests in the science of vibration. He applied his unique knowledge into the science and technology of harmonic vibration to the fields ofusic, cosmology, philosophy, architecture, botany and more.
His 600-page masterpiece Textbook of Harmonics remains one of the most important reference works for Gann Theory studies today.
German Edition 1950. English Translation 2006. 485 illustrations.
The first release in our project to translate the complete works of Hans Kayser.
The Textbook is THE MOST IMPORTANT WORK ON HARMONICS AND VIBRATION EVER WRITTEN! This course is the equivalent to a Ph.D. in technical and historical harmonics and musicology, and there is no work ever created or conceived which touches the depth of knowledge and scientific application of this masterpiece!
It surveys the entire history of harmonics through all ancient societies and authors, developing a Science of Harmonics & Vibration, stemming from Pythagorean origins, elaborating how the entire universe is constructed upon Harmonic Principles.
German Edition 1958, Translation Society Edition 2010. 205 Pages, with 50 plates and illustrations.
This is Hans Kayser’s primary work on the Harmonics of Architecture, using the temple at Paestum to demonstrate how Sacred Architecture is constructed according to Harmonic Proportions.
The Harmonic Division Canon - Hans Kayser
A Harmonic Division Canon by Hans Kayser ( $75.00 )
German Edition 1946, Translation Society Edition 2010. With 20 plates and illustrations.
This interesting, shorter work by Hans Kayser gives a harmonic analysis of the human body, and its proportions. The collection of essays by Kayser’s student Rudolf Haase presents a number of very interesting essays on the History of Harmonics and its relations. Also included is Hans’ Kayser’s Horoscope with a brief analysis.
Harmonia Plantarum - Hans Kayser
Harmonia Plantarum by Hans Kayser ( $175.00 )
German Edition 1943. 350 Pages - with numerous plates and illustrations.
This is Kayser's extensive work on the Harmonics of Plant Forms, filled with fascinating diagrams of the structure and harmonic relations of plant forms.
Akroasis - Hans Kayser
Akroasis by Hans Kayser ( $50.00 )
German Edition 1943. 175 Pages With plates and illustrations
This is Kayser's introductory work on his Doctrine of the World Harmonic, and an essential introduction to the subject of Harmonics and lead in to the Textbook of Harmonics. An excellent work to introduce one to the subject and to Kayser's approach to the topic.
By the book Natural Architecture’s own testimony it was authored by "Petrus Talemarianus" during the hundred months preceding the summer solstice of 1944.
However next to nothing is known about the author and there appars to be a consensus that Patrus Talemarianus is a pseudonym for another author (or authors).
The United States Catalog of Copyright Entries (Jan.-June 1977) identifies Petrus Talemarianus as Dr. Alexandre Rouhier himself (the book’s editor), on the authority of Odette Rouhier (his daughter). Little is known about Rouhier aside from the fact that he was a pioneer in the first-hand study of hallucinogenic drugs and the authored a classic book on peyote.
Natural Architecture by Petrus Talemarianus ( $300.00 )
The second title in the Sacred Science Translation Society series. This book is a rare masterpiece of esoteric cosmology, coming from a secret French esoteric school, connecting the work of the cosmologist Rene Hoenne-Wronski, teacher of Eliphas Levi and Balzac, and the work of the French Traditionalist, Rene Guenon.
The thesis develops a system of correspondences between the symbolic, geometrical, mathematical and astronomical systems of architecture of the ancient world. Loaded with 100's of diagrams of the most complex cosmological nature, this masterpiece is one of the greatest classics of the esoteric tradition.
The Law of the Cosmos by Eberhard Wortmann ( $200.00 )
This is the 3rd book in the Sacred Science Translation Society series. This book is One of the Ten Greatest Cosmological Masterpieces Ever Written!
Eberhard Wortmann is the only know modern Magister Ludi to have corresponded with Hermann Hesse, who in appreciation of his brilliant work called him a master "Glass Bead Game Player."
The Sacred Science Institute worked in conjunction with Wortmann's family to produce this English translation of his Masterpiece, and will continue to translate his 3 further works, bringing his life work into English for the fist time. Wortmann's works contain hundreds of the most sophisticated diagrams on Sacred Geometry, Pythagorean and Platonic Number Theory, Harmonics and Astronomy ever seen, as well as one of the most intricate elaborations of Universal Order and Cosmic Law known to man. The vast and synthetic thinking process presented in these works inspired a correspondence between Hesse and Wortmann discussing the GBG.
"Here it should be mentioned that the Platonic riddle of numbers are actually a question of logical games of thought, "Glass Bead Games", as Hermann Hesse, the great writer and man, had named this kind of mental business."
Alexandre Saint-Yves, Marquess of Alveydre (1842-1909) was a French occultist and author of "L'Archéomètre" (The Archeometer). He is a known proponent of Synarchy – a political formula (and opposition to Anarchy) which he believed would lead to a harmonious society. He was also an earlier envisioner of a Federalised Europe with a government composed of three councils: academia, judiciary,commerce.
St. Yves d'Alveydre was a powerhouse in the evolution of occultism in the 19th century. His his contributions to the field influenced the work of Blavatsky, Rudolf Steiner, Max Heindel, a young René Guénon, and more.
The Archeometer remains one of most beautifuly complex renderings of nature’s universal system available in print.
The Archeometer by Marquis Saint-Yves D'Alveydre ( $300.00 )
This fourth translation in the Sacred Science Translation Society series represents one of the most highly respected elaborations of the universal system, by one of the most respected esotericists of the 19th century.
Our volume includes the technical source text, along with a further 70 page elaboration and description by another of St. Yves associates published in the French magazine La Gnose from 1909-1912. It also includes another half-dozen scholarly articles published throughout the last century on St. Yves and his work. This book is another of the Greatest Cosmological Masterpieces Ever Written!
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.
