Michael the Archangel and the Shadow of the Spirit has been by far one of my favorite and most essential lecture series that I have taken from the Rosenkreutz Institute. I believe this lecture series should serve as a foundational lecture series for all students of the spirits here at the Rosenkreutz Institute. If you feel any sense of urgency on beginning your spiritual journey I would highly recommend taking this lecture series. If you want to work with the impulses of Michael the Archangel then this would be a wonderful lecture series to begin with. This lecture series also has many different practical techniques to advance the student of spirit along his path. In taking this lecture series I would highly recommend taking along with this course 027 The Mysteries of the Rose Cross since this course builds upon what was previously discussed in the 026 lecture series.
