THE MAGUS OF STROVOLOS. Kyriacos C. Markides, a native of Cyprus, is Professor of. Sociology at the University of Maine. He is married to Emily J. Markides. In this vivid account, Kryiacos C Markides introduces to us the rich and intricate world of Daskalso, The Magus of Strovolos. In what appears at. In writing The Magus of Strovolos, Markides seeks to bring the master healer's teachings to the world. By reading it, we too undertake his spiritual journey.
The magics which stem from the recuperative or destructive powers of the body over itself have the worst reputation of all.
Great power to kill with a single spell is a cause of fear in most ordinary people.
It was with this thought in mind that two enchanters, members of the Sect of Eshost, left the relative safety of their own sect in to set up their own, with support from a diviner of the Pale Flame.
These pioneers intended to study the fields of necromancy with an aim of improving the knowledge of this little understood realm amongst mages everywhere. It proved impossible to break with their background in magic, and so the new sect taught not only necromancy but also the Enchantment school. They received little help whilst setting up, from either the Pale Flame or from the Sect of Eshost, which is a little ironic as it was this new sect who influenced the Pale Flame into finally adopting necromancy as one of their own schools in The new sect struggled for ten years to find its feet, but it was not until they perfected spells such as Transfer Life and Chill Touch that they finally became established among their peers.
By , the group had grown considerably, and had done some startling research into their school. The Pale Flame and the then Sect of Necromancers worked together at that time in an attempt to counter the plague which was ravaging the lands.
Despite their failure to make any impact on the plague, but some important research had been done, and the Pale Flame ha provided the Sect of Necromancers with several new spells.
By the year the sect had expanded to the three centres in the southern Empire, but it had not reached into the north. As a response to the growth in agriculture in Caldonacia in the run up to the crisis in , many support services had sprung up.
One of these trades involved the secret use of magic in the production of poor quality steel for farming use. One perceptive conjurer, Dornan Rees, used unseen servants and conjured elementals to provide this expensive, but hard wearing metal to the community.
By , he had become extremely wealthy, and used his cash to establish a new sect in Caldonacia devoted to the study of conjuration and summoning spells through the Summoning school.
While the sect thrived, the unfortunate mage went bankrupt as King Bruan pumped expensive grain into Ticetia to manipulate the marketplace.
Dornan had appointed a trusted friend to run his Sect while he focussed on keeping his steel making business afloat, and this friend kept the sect solvent by preventing Rees from taking any money from it to support his other interests. Dornan eventually fell foul of his downturn in business, he laid off his few staff in a last ditch attempt to save his company, but one of them reported his use of magic to the authorities, and a mob turned up at factory, ransacking the place and lynching him.
He was burned for witchcraft.
When the second great plague struck in , both the Sect of Necromancers and Dornans Sect of Conjurers were hit financially. It is the calling of some but really it the necessity for all. To be successful in the material world or the spiritual world we must become more aware and more conscious, which requires research in the form of observation and study.
The first benefit of researching the truth is it frees us from ignorance, fear and illusion that are at the root of our problems both in the material world and in the spiritual world.
Simultaneously the research of truth brings us knowledge and wisdom. These are two different things. Knowledge is not wisdom but knowledge leads to wisdom. Of course the most important knowledge a Researcher of Truth can come to is who and what they are. Again this requires researching the truth in order to distinguish the difference between our constantly changing outer self our personality from our changeless Inner Self the Soul. And this is the aim of the System for the Research of Truth as established by Dr.
Stylianos Atteshlis who is more popularly known as Daskalos the Mystic of Strovolos. The Whale Book first introduces Daskalos as a young seven year old master and then reveals the year old lineage of the Researchers of Truth in the introductory workbook, Swimming with the Whale. This workbook guides your initial approach to these safe, effective and self-evident teachings and practices. It makes a tremendous difference in my life and I finally have a place to really learn the detail stuff.
I really love the way that Swimming with the Whale is laid out, it makes quite complex subjects much easier to understand.
The members of our Researchers of Truth Group have opted for using your Swimming with the Whale Workbook to guide our gatherings, as we appreciate the fact that it is well-structured and it presents a good progression also for beginners. You have had a tremendous impact on my life as I have learned so much reading your beautiful Swimming with the Whale book and listening to your wonderful Virtual Circle Lessons on the Radio. Just writing to say that I received the Diving with the Whale e-book just under a week ago and I couldn't stop reading it.
I enjoyed it a lot. I think Swimming with the Whale is a wonderful Book should be released in German and I am looking forward to the "Diving with the Whale books". I've been reading Swimming with the Whale again, and I feel like I'm reading it for the first time.
I'm so glad you wrote these books. Your explanation of kinetic energy makes me pay more attention to the beginning meditation which I do daily as I focus on my toes then move up to knees, etc.
How is the 3rd volume coming? The Swimming with the Whale book and the teachings of Daskalos take the reader to higher dimensions of enlightenment and faith.
Excellent reading - Blessed to have found this book. My wife and I absolutely loved Swimming with the Whale and are looking forward to watching the Online Courses together. The book is one of the best I've ever read and I've read many. My life will forever be changed after reading Swimming with the Whale.
Daniel's Swimming with the Whale book is one of the very few to do that. Daskalos' primary teachings are available for those interested but Daniel, using those teachings and his own experiences and wisdom, adds that much need "spark" which ignites that flame.
Even though I am so busy, I am delighted by your Diving with the Whale books!! They came just in time to clarify some aspect of the system. I cannot go to sleep without reading at least a chapter from them. God bless you and I am very happy that you bring the teaching of Daskalos to life again. I have studied all the three Whale books, I love them!
Now I have found safe meditations. I had been practicing certain meditation that resulted in hemorrhaging in my lungs. But more importantly for me, is that I now live in a new way, more happier, calmer, satisfying and confident and better about the future. I have to say, Diving with the Whale is remarkable work.
