It started in August of 1972. Nicholas R. Mann, like many other western spiritual seekers, journeyed to the mystic East in search of enlightenment. Instead, he descended into darkness.
Set up and arrested for possession of a small quantity of hashish, Mann was imprisoned at Bayrampasa, the same hellish Turkish prison made famous by Willie Hayes in the book and the movie Midnight Express.
Rather than denying the darkness and brutality of life in prison, Mann embraced it. Virtually cut off from the rest of the world, he turned to a daily practice of yoga and meditation. His prison became his monastery. Raw, emotional, and intense, The Dark God chronicles Mann's spiritual odyssey.
Drawing upon the traditions of his ancestors, life in prison became a shamanic vision quest. While deep in this dark world he discovered a powerful, transformative means through which the divine masculine can at last become whole, and once more rejoin the divine feminine.
The Dark God reveals the true secrets of Men's Mysteries. It brings the Dark God back into balance with the Goddess. Included are rites that will open you to the Goddess and reconcile the majesty, power, and importance of the God in your life and the world.
By facing the fear and denial surrounding the mythic figure of the Dark God, Nicholas Mann sheds light on the darker side of masculine spirituality.
