Atop a 400 million year old monadknock outside of Atlanta Georgia called Arabia Mountain, wandering Bishops, occultists, mystics, and adepts of a multitude of traditions, link arms in mutual aid and support of each other while administering the mysterious points-chauds empowerments and performing various workings of the clergy of the Gnostic Church. Operating under the inclusive banner of Free Illuminism, these individuals from all walks of life work a progressive form of initiation by linking the points empowerments with the Antient & Primitive Rite of Memphis+Misriam, as expressed by the 1921-22 Ecclesiastical Revision of the Rite. Each individual empowered from the Arabia Mountain workings is free to develop and research the mysteries of the points and their alignments to this progressive arm of Freemasonry. This book is the result of such exploration. +PALAMAS, working with his companion in the mysteries and wife, SALOME+, has merged together the two worlds of the Voudon Gnostic inspired points-chauds empowerments with the degrees of the Rites of Memphis & Misraim in an innovative and unique system that is fully workable and expresses the living tradition that stems from Arabia Mountain. The approach is spiritist and the manner of Masonry propounded is mystical. The sincere individual that explores this powerful path will have access to the supersensual realms and encounter entities and energies that are consciousness expanding and life altering. In a single tome +PALAMAS has provided an introduction to the movement and practice of Free Illuminism, created an inspired three degree system that unfolds the Sacred Doctrine of Memphis+Misraim, and revealed an operative and spiritist ritual monitor and guide for working all 97 degrees.

Emerging adulthood has been identified as an important developmental stage, characterised by identity exploration, instability and open possibilities, in which young people are no longer adolescents but have not yet attained full adult status. This ground-breaking edited collection is the first book to offer a comprehensive overview of emerging adulthood in a European context, which includes a comparison of findings in 9 different European countries and the USA.
Each chapter, written by a leading European researcher, describes the socio-demographic characteristics of emerging adults, reviews the state of the field, synthesises new findings, and provides suggestions for how to move forward in research, interventions, and policy. The book examines how the traditional domain markers of adulthood, such as finishing education and caring for children, have changed. It also highlights how different factors such as gender, working status, living arrangements, romantic status and parental educational background affect the importance assigned to each set of adulthood criteria. The theory of emerging adulthood is further developed by considering how Arnett's emerging adulthood, Erikson's early adulthood, and Robinson's theory of early adult crisis fit together, and data is provided to support the new framework given.
The book will be of great interest to researchers interested in these developmental transitions, and to advanced students of Emerging Adulthood on developmental psychology and lifespan courses, and related disciplines.
