Are you ready for an adventure into the unknown? Today on Veritas Radio, we're taking a journey into the heart of Russia's mystical past. We'll uncover the ancient spiritual practices that still thrive in modern Russia, from the indigenous customs of the Mari people to the shamanic traditions of Siberia. We'll delve into the "Silver Age" of Russia, exploring the precursors to modern spiritual movements and the impact of the Russian Revolution on esoteric groups. But that's not all, we'll also uncover the truth behind the controversial Book of Veles, a text that has been both discredited and celebrated as an epic chronicle of the Slavic people. Join us as we explore the implications of the modern Russian spiritual and esoteric renaissance. Will Edgar Cayce's prediction of Russia as the hope of the world come true or will Russia always remain, as Churchill famously stated, "a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma"? Tune in to Veritas Radio to find out. It's going to be an unforgettable journey. Tune in to find out.

Christopher McIntosh is renowned British-born writer and historian with a passion for the esoteric traditions of the West. With a wealth of knowledge and expertise on the subject, Christopher holds a doctorate in history from Oxford University, a degree in German from London University and a diploma in Russian from the United Nations Language School. His academic background, combined with his passion for the subject, has led him to write many books, with his most recent being "Occult Russia: Pagan, Esoteric & Mystical Traditions" which examines the survival of ancient Slavic deities, pagan practices, and folk medicine tradition in modern Russia, including the indigenous pre-Christian customs of the Mari people and the shamanic traditions of Siberia.

Christopher`s interest in the mystical and spiritual traditions of the West began when he wrote his previous book "Beyond the North Wind" which delves into the legend of Hyperborea, a supposed ancient civilization in the North Polar region, which is popular in Russia. This sparked his interest in the great spiritual quest happening in Russia, which led to the creation of his latest book.

As an author, Christopher is known for his unique perspective and in-depth analysis of the subject matter. He brings a fresh perspective to the field of esotericism, and his works are a must-read for anyone interested in the mystical and spiritual traditions of the West.
