      Patterns in Comparative Religion by Mircea Eliade; Comparative Study of Religions by J. Wach; Gnosis: The Nature and History of Gnosticism by Kurt Rudolph; Psyche the Cult of Souls and Belief in Immortality Among Ancient Greeks by Erwin Rohde; Erring: A Postmodern A/theology by Mark C. Taylor; The Meccan Revelations, volume I by Ibn al-Arabi.   My purpose in writing this blog is to bring psychologists, my clients, and us all back to psychology as the study of the psyche, to a focus on the ground of our being, to the soul.

    Nietzsche’s The Birth of Tragedy and Viacheslav Ivanov’s treatise in response, “The Hellenic Religion of the Suffering God,” have been considered the foundation of the dithyramb revival, but Katherine Lahti shows Erwin Rohde’s Psyche: The Cult of Souls and the Belief in Immortality among the Greeks also to have played a significant role.   The psychic immortality was a common belief between the Pythagoreans and the Orphic religious cult, which, according to Herodotus, originated from the Egyptian religion. Fundamental feature of Orphism was the psychic ‘catharsis’ or cleansing, from somatic impulses and passions, through shamanic-like rituals, music, strict dietary practices.

    forms the idea of immortality took among the ancient Greeks, we must observe that it is exactly this approach to the problem of life and death that is found originally in Greek tradition, whereas belief in the immortality of the soul is a later product of the Greek mind. It cannot be separated from the development of the idea. Western beliefs about witchcraft grew largely out of the mythologies and folklore of ancient peoples, especially the Egyptians, Hebrews, Greeks, and Romans. Witches in ancient Egypt purportedly used their wisdom and knowledge of amulets, spells, formulas, and figures to bend the cosmic powers to their purpose or that of their clients.
