A long-time practitioner of Hinduism, Vedic Astrology, esotericism, Tantra, and Ayurvedic medicine, Craig Williams has been warded title of “Veda Kovid” and “Yogacharya” by David Frawley (Pandit Vamadeva Shastri) and the American Institute of Vedic Studies. He also has a Bachelor’s Degree in Religious Studies with a focus on Eastern Religions, and a Master’s Degree in Oriental Medicine.
In part one of a two-part interview, Craig gives us an overview of his just released book Cave of the Numinous (Theion Publishing). Here we look at Hinduism, esotericism, and the guru, among other subjects, laying the foundation for a more in depth conversation in part two.
From the publisher:
Highly anticipated and the result of over 25 years of initiatic study within authentic Guru lineages, Cave of the Numinous by Craig Williams is one of the very few genuine expositions of the Left Hand Path in general and Left Handed Tantra in particular.
Cave of the Numinous is the first installment in Craig’s Tantric Physics series of books. Each self-contained volume will treat crucial aspects of the Vama Margaand considered as a whole this series will unveil a complete initiatic system of Left Hand Tantra.
Radical in its approach, the Tantric way of the Dark Goddess is a most intense and dangerous pathway towards spiritual liberation and power. Sexual alchemy, Guru Yoga, antinomian ritual and complex interactions of various Vedic sciences form a fascinating universe of spiritual transformation within which the wayfarer may attain to the supreme freedom of Kaivalya or suffer utter destruction.
