The Modern Mystery School has many books it recommends that will create a foundation of esoteric, metaphysical and Hermetic knowledge, which is the basis for all the mystery teachings. While books alone will not replace the true, oral teaching of the mystery school tradition, they are a great place and reference points for further education.
