Hello I am sure you may have heard about Sifu Mark Rasmus's new book 'Backdoor Into Hermetics'.
I wanted to do a quick post on it as I think this may well be a massive turning point in many peoples training which in turn can have a massive effect on the community with so many more people managing to reach the higher steps and move onto the later book.
I think this is one book dare I say all Bardonists could benefit from as even if you are advanced and require no outside assistance (After step 4 I see no reason why people may need outside help as the foundation has been laid.), the different apporoaches and ideas presented in the book give you entirely new ways to utilise the skills you have built up.
The proof is in the pudding with many students who have visited Sifu Mark over the years in Thailand or learned from him on his seminar tours now making their own original breakthroughs in the work and having their own unique experiences with the beings of the ZGE. I think the success of his students is a testament to the teachings and his approach. It really does work and really does assist you in breaking throughs areas you may well have been stuck on for long periods of time.
My own story is very similar to this after being told by so called 'Masters' that my difficulty with visualisation was astrological in nature and that I would never be able to do it to the standard required! I swiftly left that group and went out on my own, then finding and communicating with Sifu Mark until I eventually went out to study with him in 2012.
In the space of days my ability to do certain exercises completely transformed thanks to a change of perspective and incremental approach. So now fast forward to 2020 and we have his new book which is full to the brim of information as well as the online training via Vimeo where you can follow his approach to Tai Chi, his Elastic Force Method or his channel that is devoted to going through Initiation into Hermetics. What you can access now via the book or vimeo previously required a big investment of time and money so I think right now is the time to dive in and get tiwhile you can. Who knows what the future brings.

Lastly I am really no fan of Masters or Gurus, but that is one key reason why I like and appreciate Sifu Mark, he focuses solely on making sure you get and understnad the material, then once you have it he gives as much as possible to you in the remaining time. Super generous! So the least I can do is return the favor with a blog post.
