The 30 Trials of Ix and the Angels follows Ix Pantheos from his awakening in a ruined castle through his travels to the moon, the sun, and beyond, carried along by the songs of thirty angels as they initiate him into the mysteries of consciousness and the nature of existence. The answer seemingly found and the journey apparently nearing its end, Ix then finds that he must suffer the destruction of his former self, and face a new struggle to hold onto all that was revealed to him.Born of a series of meditations performed by the author, and utilizing an eclectic mix of various world religious and occult philosophies, the story is a surreal journey into the depths of the mind, echoing Ix's own quest to redeem both himself and mankind. While it stands alone as an engaging read for those unacquainted with the various schools of inquiry that comprise the fertile field within which it took root, it retains that symbolism which may prove insightful to like-minded readers who find themselves treading its obscure paths.

Religious and spiritual writings have always made reference to beings from the spiritual hierarchies, especially those known in Christian tradition as Angels. These spirits are the closest to human beings and act as our invisible guides and companions. They influence the life of the individual as well as the evolution of humanity and the cosmos. From his own clairvoyant vision, Rudolf Steiner confirmed the existence of such spiritual beings and showed how modern minds could gain access to their world. As he explains in these inspiring lectures, it is important for us to understand and cooperate with the work of the Angels today as this is crucial for the further development of humanity.

Angels is a 52 page introductory volume to the works of the visionary artist, philosopher, teacher Cecil Collins (1908-1989), widely regarded as England's most important visionary artist since William Blake. It differs from all other published work on Cecil Collins in that it focuses on his teaching and is small enough to be carried everywhere. An opening to Collins' vision and a brief biography of Collins precedes the address he was invited to give on angels. This address is offered here for the first time in its original form and carries a pertinent message for today's world. With discernment and objectivity Collins explains the imbalance and divisions in contemporary society, throwing light on the root cause of much confusion, conflict and loneliness. He offers hope and points the way towards universal consciousness. His ideas are conveyed in simple language with clarity and certainty. Elegantly presented, this pocket volume provides food for thought. It is an invaluable document not only for people interested in this artist but also for those concerned with a rejoinder to the imminent crisis facing humanity While the Tate Gallery houses a permanent a body of his work, he is widely represented in many smaller museums and galleries throughout Britain, Angels is a simple introduction to Collins and provides a clear idea of his two major themes: the Fool and the Angel. There are six illustrations and a foreword by Jonathan Stedall, the filmmaker, who worked with Collins over a number of years.
