Ever since his childhood, Kyriacos C. Markides has heard mysterious rumors concerning the Magus of Strovolos, Cyprus’s “specialist of the netherworld.”
When he returns to Cyprus as an adult, Markides seeks out this master healer and spiritual teacher, to discover the old man for himself. Armed with the skepticism he learned as a sociologist, combined with his passion to explore the inner world and beliefs of this strange Magus, Markides soon learns to appreciate the power and wisdom of this peaceful and humorous soul.
From his exorcism of a Jewish girl haunted by Nazi ghosts to his theory of reincarnation, the Magus reveals to Markides the extraordinary secrets of his philosophy, challenging Western materialism and science, and pointing towards vast domains we normally cannot see.
In writing The Magus of Strovolos, Markides seeks to bring the master healer’s teachings to the world. By reading it, we too undertake his spiritual journey.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
You can study the occult for 25 years, or simply read the Magus of Strovolos. The treatment of psychic healing, color therapy and elemental creation is excellent. A book for those who want to know how an occult master/holy person uses the laws of God energy for White Magick.
Read this book to obtain an unusual level of insight into the inner dimensions of life. I have found the teachings expressed within to be without equal, a true expression of esoteric Christianity.
