Doesn't matter. These practices can't be done without the direct teachings and transmission of a qualified guru who is holding the lineage and has realization in the practice. Publishing texts on it in an openly available book is a sign that they don't know what they are talking about.
I'm not sure what they're selling but I don't think I'll be buying it. There are much better books and teachers out there.
On their website they manage to blend (in just one of many squishy paragraphs) a new-age dualist view with eternalism, conspiracy theories, perennialism, patriarchal oppression and top it off with a repeating picture of Shiva completed by a Guy Fawkes mask superimposed over the face.
Divine treason is to accept our spiritual worthiness. We have the same intrinsic right to direct experience of spiritual growth as we have to economic, social, and environmental justice. These issues are not separate. The inequalities are maintained by the same mythologies. The rulers whether heads of state, bankers, priests, lamas, ceo’s, or the laws of reason, science and technology, are not divine. They have merely usurped this power and claimed it for their own. The treason is divine, to accept that the human heart has a natural capacity to blend with the Source, the All by any name, and that we can all return home to a heart blended with the fabric of being and support each other in that returning. The flawed being that dominator societies call human nature is not our true face. It is the true face of the dominators mentality with all the cruelty that entails. We look in their mirrors and see what they want us to see. Look deeper into your true heart and see what we really are and can be, one with the fabric of being, naturally generous and caring in kinship with all life.
