The Secret Teachings of All Ages w/ Mitch Horowitz



Today’s Guest: Mitch Horowitz

Well, that was a pretty damn awesome way for me to spend an hour. I am a huge fan of Manly P. Hall’s magnum opus, “The Secret Teachings of All Ages,” and to get to dig into it with Mitch Horowitz, author, lecturer, leading expert on esoterica, and Manly P. Hall aficionado… can’t be beat!

In this episode, we discuss some personal favorite chapters and stories from my beloved and much poured over copy of SToAA. Including…

What is the hidden meaning of the Philosopher’s Stone?

Is there a hidden, possibly immortal brotherhood of wise masters that has helped to shepherd human civilization over millennia?

Was the brilliant English statesman and philosopher Francis Bacon a member of this brotherhood, and was he the hidden hand behind famous works of literature that have shaped our development for the last 400 years? Was Francis Bacon the secret mind behind the works of Shakespeare?

If you are a fan of anything even remotely esoteric and you don’t know about this book… this episode of What’s Your Theory…? will be only a tiny but delicious taste of the massive feast of information and historical and existential rabbit-holes that is…

An Encyclopedic Outline of

Masonic, Hermetic,

Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian

Symbolical Philosophy

Being an Interpretation of the

Secret Teachings concealed within the Rituals, Allegories

and Mysteries of all Ages.

How’s that for a subtitle?

And for fans of Manly P. Hall and/or Mitch Horowitz: don’t miss this… Starting on June 21st, Mitch will be delivering a 12 episode video lecture series originating from the University of Philosophical Research specifically about this book, “The Secret Teachings of All Ages.” You can sign up for the course @ www.prs.org

Mitch Horowitz is a writer-in-residence at the New York Public Library, a lecturer-in-residence at the University of Philosophical Research in Los Angeles, and the PEN Award-winning author of books including Occult AmericaOne Simple Idea: How Positive Thinking Reshaped Modern LifeMind as Builder; and the The Miracle Club: How Thoughts Become Reality. Mitch has written on everything from the war on witches to the secret life of Ronald Reagan for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Salon, Time.com, and Politico.

The Washington Post says Mitch “treats esoteric ideas and movements with an even-handed intellectual studiousness that is too often lost in today’s raised-voice discussions.”


Talking Esoterica w/ Mitch Horowitz



Fear will hold you back from greatness. Collective fear of things we don’t yet understand holds us all back at once.

Today on the show, a conversation with Mitch Horowitz on why so many people seem so scared of all things new and certainly all things esoteric…even the nice stuff like the power of positive thinking.

Mitch Horowitz is an author, publisher, and lecturer who “treats esoteric ideas and movements with an even-handed intellectual studiousness that is too often lost in today’s raised voice discussions.” (Washington Post)

I’ve owned his first book, “Occult America,” for several years and it’s one of my favorite works of non-fiction to come around in a long while. In a world rather unevenly divided between a “mainstream” and “not-mainstream,” Mitch Horowitz has been a champion of occult and esoteric ideas, and their place in our history, bringing important but neglected ideas from the edges and the shadows, into the light of everyday conversation where they probably should have been all along.

Everything moves in cycles. Today, Mitch Horowitz and I have a conversation about some ideas who’s time may be coming around at last… or maybe again.
