Craig Williams
An ordained Gnostic Bishop and a highly empowered adept of Esoteric Voudon, Craig Williams has moved beyond conservative views of Vedic Studies – evolving a radically unique system of Esoteric Hinduism and Left Hand Tantra.
With over 25 years of academic and initiatic study in Yoga, Ayurveda, Tantra, Jyotish, and Vedanta, Williams is the recipient of the prestigious “Veda Kovid”, “Yogacharya”, and “Yogayurvedaacharya” titles awarded by the American Institute of Vedic Studies and the Academy of Traditional Ayurveda.
Author of Cave of The Numinous: Tantric Physics vol. I (Theion Publishing, 2014) and Entering the Desert: Pilgrimage to the Hinterland of the Soul (Anathema Publishing, 2017),  along with numerous articles on health, martial arts, and authentic initiation in the Kali Yuga, Williams is a vocal proponent for the benefits of serious spiritual practice in the contemporary world.

“Craig Williams’ has extensive training and education, a sincere dedication to practice and study, and an ability to distill complex philosophies and practices into accessible and practical wisdom for modern spiritual aspirants. A rising star in the world of esotericism, I highly recommend Craig’s writings and teachings.” – Greg Kaminsky, Host/Founder, Occult of Personality 

“I have found Craig to be uniquely qualified and adept not only in Ayurvedic medicine, but in Vedic astrology, Classical Yoga, Vedic science, Vedanta, Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and clinical herbalism as well. It is a rare combination that makes his work very special as well as extremely practical. Craig can diagnose and treat imbalance with Ayurveda or Chinese Medicine, adding a proficiency of clinical herbalism to his treatment that has little parallel among Ayurvedic practitioners in the West. He can examine Vedic astrology charts relative to health with clarity and precision, and recommend yoga and meditation practices in-depth for physical, psychological or spiritual purposes.” – David Frawley ( Vamadeva Shastri), American Institute of Vedic Studies

“Unlike many modern-day ‘Vedic prophets’, he is no superficial American who wishes to express or superimpose pasteurised or New-Age pseudo-Vedic wisdom upon the world; his refreshing wisdom reflects that of great lion-hearted Rishis from Vishwamitra and Vasishtha in ancient times to Shankaracharya, Dayananda, Vivekananda and Aurobindo in more recent times, who are echoed in his wise words and personality.” – Durgadas (Rodney) Lingham, Veda Kovid, Author, Agni Rahasya: The Secret of the Celestial Fire in Yoga and Ayurveda

    Greetings Craig

    Heard your interview on Glitch Bottle, I immediately impressed and fascinated. Just ordered a preowned copy of Tantric Physics Vol off of Amazon today, couldn’t find it elsewhere, really looking forward to seeing it.

    Finding a teacher is way more difficult than I expected.

    When is Volume II of Tantric Physics becoming available?

    Thanks for your work. Onwards and Upwards.

      Hello Casey!

      Thank you for the message! I hope all is well in your world. Please do try to find a copy of “Entering the Desert”! My next book, “Cult of Golgotha” will be out in August. Tantric Physics II: Sacred Body, Sacred Space” will be out in 2019. I hope you were able to find a reasonably priced copy of Cave, I abhor the horrible black market occult prices.

      Best wishes!

    Question regarding Entering the Desert: within the Cell, are involuntary body movements commonly experienced after divine reading or during dreamless sleep?
