About meAn esoteric library for the San Francisco Bay Area. Our collection covers Wiccan, Pagan, Reconstructionist, Afro-Diasporic, metaphysical and esoteric content. We have a private reading room in the East Bay, open by appointment to scholars for on-site use.

About my libraryWhat is "Adocentyn"?

In the Hermetic dialogue called the Asclepius, Hermes Trismegistus prophesied that a time would come when the people would no longer worship Nature as a manifestation of the Divine and that the Gods would withdraw from Egypt to dwell in a city "to the furthest west from Egypt", leaving mankind to "the tyranny of the angels". Eventually, the Gods would venture out into the world again from this city, restoring the worship of Nature and the old wisdom.

Later Hermetic texts identify this city as "the City of Hermes" and name it "Adocentyn", based on the Latin "ad occidentem" or "to the West".

And we even already have our own pyramid. ;-)
