The Pilgrimage is more than a simple tale of adventure. As it unfolds, the reader is led into an allegorical exploration of temple symbolism that reveals truths about the secret life of the soul, a life that is central to those individuals that have heard the call of the Holy Spirit, and who are compelled to undertake a pilgrimage that leads them into the inner sanctum of Creation.
Following in the footsteps of the great exemplars of the ‘Tradition’ the author uses the narrative of The Pilgrimage to inform the reader about some of the most outstanding features of the ‘inner life’ that souls will encounter, and must understand, if they are to make progress upon the path of spiritual development. The elements of this tale are timeless and are as just as relevant today as they were three thousand years ago.
