Return to Gnosis: Knowledge of the Sacred & What Keeps Us from It by Nick Reed is a book for seekers and dreamers, and those who are desirous of connecting intimately with their higher self, a spiritual book that reads like a classic, providing tools that readers need to attain knowledge and wisdom. In this slim but compelling book, readers are given powerful doses of insights and wisdom through the author’s personal stories — and most of them veer strongly towards the esoteric —
and extraordinary spiritual experiences, and the author’s personal and spiritual odyssey in search of answers to the questions that nudge our minds, but that few dare to ask. The title of the book contains one of the powerful words that have defined an entire philosophical school; the word “gnosis” which refers to the “knowledge of spiritual mysteries.”
Nick Reed writes for readers who seek meaning, who really want to uncover their purpose, create a life that takes them beyond the absurdities that punctuate the ordinary life. This book will help readers answer the most crucial, not-so-often-asked questions that create a deep sense of meaning - such as who we are, what is important to us, and where we want to be in life. This book will challenge any reader to reconsider what they know, to take a critical look at the dogmas they have generously embraced without seeking to understand why. It is a book for people who are open to exploring their spiritual selves, to use a new spiritual language which allows them to see themselves and the wealth they carry within them more clearly. Return to Gnosis: Knowledge of the Sacred & What Keeps Us from It is well-written and the author speaks with the confidence of someone who has a lot of experience in the subject.
