John L. Lash has been called the true successor of Mircea Eliade and the rightful heir of Joseph Campbell. Unlike those two world-class academics, John is a self-educated freelance scholar who combines studies and experimental mysticism to teach directive mythology: that is, the application of myth to life, rather than its mere interpretation. Find links below to crucial essays that outline the origins of the Gaian Mythos and the development of Planetary Tantra: The Portal of Conscious Dreaming.

John L. Lash; Author of ‘Not in His Image‘ – describes the rich spiritual world of pre-Christian classical Europe – the Pagan Mysteries, the Great Goddess, Gnosis, the Myths of Sophia and Gaia – and its future as a force for reconnecting to the earth. JLL’s riveting account describes the decisive arc of history from the dawn of the Christian Era to the present moment of global terror, a trajectory driven by faith-based violence and fundamentalist politics. Countering the patriarchy of monotheistic religions with the Gnostic story of the wisdom goddess, Sophia, Not in His Image  gives us back our heritage and guides us beyond destructive social chaos toward a sacred ecological path for the future.
