Ken Wilber's Website
Ken Wilber is one of the leading thinkers on metaphysics, tranpersonal psychology and the 'Great Tradition'. He is author of many books, including "Up From Eden", "No Boundary", "A Brief History of Everything", "Grace and Grit" and others that have been shining lights on my path.

Kenning and the Glass Bead Game
Ron Hale-Evans simple but unusual and thought-provoking site, describing a word game that leads to some interesting philosophical sideroads.

The Hipbone Game - A Glass Bead Game
Charles Cameron's wonderfully original game design considerations that overlap some of the same metaphorical ground as the Tarot and the Taromandala Teachings.

Alex Gray's Sacred Mirrors
This showcases this famous work in a new context called the Sacred Mirror Chapel. Each painting in this series mirrors different levels of identification we can make. I saw these paintings in a book in 1991 and was profoundly affected by them. Awesome talent and vision.

The 1st Pagan Church of All Worlds
I've been a (somewhat inactive) member of this since 1991. I first visited the land where Oberon, Morning Glory, and some of the other founders lived in 1989. I remember dancing as the Green Man in the Lugnasad ritual down by the stream. The mission of the Church of All Worlds is 'to evolve a network of information, mythology and experience that provides a context and stimulus for re-awakening Gaea, and re-uniting her children through tribal community dedicated to responsible stewardship and evolving consciousness.' Sounds good enough to me.

Enchanted Spirit
The Enchanted Spirit Metaphysical Resource Center, run by Rebecca Brent, is one of my favouriteTarot-related sites on the web, offering horoscopes, tarot readings, classes, e-books, free ezines in your email, and free articles through their online metaphysical ezine, The Enchanted Sprite.

Jean Houston
Dr. Jean Houston 'is a scholar and researcher in human capacities, and for the past 30 years has co-directed, with her husband Dr. Robert Masters, the Foundation for Mind Research. Their work has focused on the understanding of latent human abilities. She is the founder of the Mystery School--a program of cross-cultural mythic and spiritual studies--dedicated to teaching history, philosophy, the new physics, psychology, anthropology, myth, and the many dimensions of our human potential.' Seeing her when she visited Auckland was a real highlight.
