Dromenon Magazine

Dromenon shares the view of the ancient Mystery Schools of Egypt and Greece, of Gnostics, Sufis, and other mystical traditions -- that belief and knowledge are not sufficient in themselves. One needs to be in process with the sacred, actively engaged in the exploration of psychological depths and realities.

*Dromenon's host went down and the magazine seems lost. We hope it will appear again, but meantime aim to present and archive an increasing number of its articles here .

The magazine was founded in 1994 by Janet Parker and others, who had attended philosopher and psychologist Jean Houston's Human Capacities programs, and her revival of the Mystery School tradition. The notion was, that since there was no membership organization, a magazine could help the thousands of individuals who attended these or similar programs keep in touch with each other, with Jean Houston's work, and with others working in the field as well.

Dromenon publishes poetry and short fiction as well as interviews, articles, journal excerpts, and public announcements of programs, workshops and activities.

Dromenon is actively interested in and seeks contributions about everything from ancient mystery schools to modern brain-mind research. It endeavors to sift as best it can through many sources, from academic to new age, for material and processes which will help individuals explore both their own psychological depths, and the ancient realms of the shamanistic, archetypal and sacred.

Total print circulation is about 2,000 -- 1,300 via snail mail.
