CATAFALQUE PRESS

CATAFALQUE PRESS takes its name from its first published title: Peter Kingsley’s 2018 Catafalque.

In a world that seems obsessed with the perpetually new and is determined to rush headlong into some unknown future, deaf to any counsels or warnings, Catafalque Press offers something different: the timeless wisdom of our ancestors.

This newly formed press aims to publish only those exceedingly rare works which embody the ancient understanding of creativity. That understanding has been expressed variously in different times and places, but was perhaps best summed up by Jung himself:

“True creation is to give birth to the primordially ancient in a world that is new.”

Catafalque: Carl Jung and the end of humanity (two-volume set)

REALITY

(New 2020 Edition)

by PETER KINGSLEY

CATAFALQUE:

Carl Jung and the end of humanity

by PETER KINGSLEY

Reality introduces us to the extraordinary mystical tradition that lies right at the roots of western culture.

This is the true story of Parmenides, Empedocles, and those like them: spiritual guides and experts in other states of consciousness, healers and interpreters of dreams, prophets and magicians who laid the foundation for the world we now live in.

Catafalque offers a revolutionary new reading of the great psychologist Carl Jung as mystic, gnostic and prophet for our time.

Much more than a brilliant spiritual biography, this book holds the key to understanding why western culture is dying—and what we, now, can do to help it.
