The School of Death indulges in both scientific and spiritual literature & poetry.

 The easily relatable as well as the far out & thought provoking.


We relate to perennial wisdom,

a spiritual perspective that sees all of the world's mystical traditions

as sharing a single, metaphysical truth

from which all esoteric and exoteric knowledge and teachings have grown.


Therefore, we do not follow any particular denomination or school of thought,

 but are interested in the One Great Mystery

to which various philosophical and religious approaches, beneath the apparent differences, point.


Tat Tvam Asi.
