    I'm a Christian with interests in Christian Gnosticism (Valentinian, Sethian, Ophite, etc.. and Christian Theosophy (Boehme , Gitchel, Swedenborg etc..)

    Other influences include
    Esoteric Christianity (Gurdjieff, Rosicrucianism..)
    Mahayana Buddhism (Especially Tiantai )
    Western Esoteric Tradition ( Alchemy, Hermeticism, Kabbalah, etc.)
    Taoism
    Sufism and Shi'ite Esoterism

    Overall I'm an avid student of world religion and spirituality in general. More recently I've been trying to broaden my reading outside of religion to include "secular" philosophy including Process Philosophy, Heidegger, Phenomenology, and whatever else catches my attention.

    Currently Reading:
    The Gnostics by Jacques LacCarrire
    &
    Being and Ambiguity: Philosophical Experiments in Tiantai Buddhism by Brook Ziporyn
