By Gordon Strong.

The medieval troubadour saw the Holy Grail as a vision of heaven. In the twenty-first century, the quantum physicist locates heaven in parallel universes. The shaman, spanning prehistory and the modern world, travels in other dimensions to experience the limits of existence.

In Sun God and Moon Maiden, Gordon Strong argues that the metaphor of the Grail questions not only space and time but perception itself. The philosophy of Plato, the psychology of Jung and the nobility of mythic kings lie in the Grail's domain; an interior landscape where we discover gateways into Inner Space, the nature of the universe, and ourselves.

From legends of Atlantis to Arthur's Camelot, the path to Avalon awaits. In this fascinating book, drawing together mythology, magic and modern physics, Gordon Strong explains how the ancient wisdom of Qabalah, Tarot and Stone Circles open the way for new discoveries in expanded consciousness.


An approach to the sanctity and mystery of the Grail which combines tradition, insight and invention in equal and exciting measure.

– Alan Richardson, author of Priestess: The Life and Magic of Dion Fortune

This revealing and original study sheds important new light on the paradoxes of the Grail which we find, ultimately, are paradoxes of the Self. Joining Gordon Strong's mythic quest to unlock the secrets of its divine truth will reward the reader handsomely.

– Geoff Ward, Mysterious Planet
