One of the most important but little known concepts of Western occultism is that of the egregore, an autonomous psychic entities created by a collective group mind.
An egregore is sustained by belief and ritual, and relies upon the devotion of a group of people, for its existence. An egregore that receives enough sustenance can take on a life of its own, becoming an independent deity with powers its believers can use to further their own spiritual advancement.
Presenting the first book devoted to the study of egregores, Mark Stavish examines the history of egregores, with detailed and documents examples, and explores how they are created, sustained, directed, and destroyed.
Revealing how egregores form the foundation of nearly all human interactions, Mark Stavish examines the history of egregores from ancient times to present day, including their role in Western Mystery traditions and popular culture and media.
