It is the month of the “returners” on Thoth Hermes! P.T. MISTLBERGER was my guest on the second Thoth Hermes episode ever, back in May 2017! We had a lovely talk then and I know he was at the time a discovery for many of my listeners here.

One who listened to his interview and then got in touch with P.T. Mistlberger, was Gabriel McCaughry from ANATHEMA Publishing. And the result was a great new book that came out earlier this month: THE DANCING SORCERER.

I admit that I am a bit proud about that story and so it is my enormous pleasure to welcome PT MISTLBERGER back on the show with a talk about his new, and by the way wonderful and beautiful book.

P.T. Mistlberger was born in Montreal in 1959 and educated at John Abbott College and Concordia University. He has worked as a transpersonal therapist and seminar leader since 1987, and has taught in numerous cities in North America, Europe, and the Middle East. He has founded several personal growth communities and esoteric schools, and has authored six books. Since 1984 he has lived in Vancouver.

The Dancing Sorcerer is a wide-ranging study of deep recesses of the Western esoteric tradition as well as the mind of both the Solomonic and Faustian magician, authored by a world-wide traveler with over 40 years experience on both Eastern and Western esoteric paths.
