A new angle on Gann's work.
Baumring Reading List
Dr. Baumring's reading lists were very comprehensive, covering all areas of the markets, sciences and metaphysical fields.
Baumring was an intensive scholar who read 1800 words a minute and had a photographic memory, thus extendinghis scope.
Baumring's 10,000 volume library included around 500 books which he saw as core information.
The Canon refers primarily to an ancient esoteric system of knowledge and cosmology encoded into temples, artifacts, art and monuments.
The Egyptians had a specific Canon to lay out the grids upon which they designed their art, and there are also canons of proportion used in the Renaissance, as well as by later artists, geometers and musicians.
In Magic Squares the addition of each of the rows and columns add up to the same number.
From Ancient times thinkers have explored these mathematical mysteries, uncovering deep ordering principles underlying numbers and geometry.
Within his esoteric market analysis systems Gann used a "Squares of Nine" and a "Square of Four".
The vortex, a key element of 19th century aether physics, was critical to W.D. Gann’s market science and was taken up by great thinkers like Walter Russell and Edwin Babbitt.
Vortex and Toroidal energy theory provides a dynamic space-time model of energy fields from human and plants to planets, suns, solar systems, and galaxies.
Daniel T. Ferrera
Our most popular author, Dan Ferrera is a master of making complicated ideas easy to apply.

W.D. Gann Works
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann.
His private courses represent the most important of his writings, going into much greater detail than the public book series. Our 6 Volume set of Gann's Collected Writings includes supplementary rare source materials, and is the most reliable compliation of Gann's unadulterated vital work.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this entire website is based. Baumring is the only known modern person to have cracked the code behind WD Gann’s system of trading and market order.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumring’s work.
Hans Kayser Master of the Science of Harmonics
About the Author
The Sacred Science Institute is honored to be involved in supporting the work of the Sacred Science Translation Society through translating the complete works of Hans Kayser, the great master of Harmonics which forms the basis for Gann’s Law of Vibration.
Kayser’s Textbook of Harmonics is a 600 page masterpiece on the science and technology of harmonic vibration as an ordering principle or control factor behind all universal form, structure and process. Gann developed much of his Law of Vibration through the Natural Sciences of the late 1800’s.
Hans Kayser was a contemporary of Gann and took a similar interest in the science of vibration, applying it to the fields of science, cosmology, philosophy, architecture, botany and much more. As such, it is one of THE most important source and reference works for any serious student of Gann Theory.
Hans Kayser was born on April 1, 1891, in Buchau am Federsee, Germany.
In his youth he flourished as a musician and painter. As a young man he would often express a heartfelt reverence for nature combined with a solidly scientific approach; this respect for the patterns building the universe must have grown from his father’s influence during his formative years.
In 1911 Kayser undertook music studies at the Berlin Academy of Music. He first studied composition with Engelbert Humperdinck (whose teaching style he strongly disliked), then quickly transferred to Stuttgart to study under Joseph Haas; but after a few months he returned to Berlin, not to resume his studies at the Academy, but instead to pursue private lessons. Thus, in April 1913, he began lessons with Arnold Schönberg.
Schönberg gave Hans an excellent background in harmonics and composition theory, though they eventually quarreled; Schönberg, despite recognizing his student’s great gifts, advised Kayser that he should not become a composer since he was more philosopher than musician. Despite their differences, Kayser later remembered Schönberg fondly, in particular the gift for painting that both men shared.
World War I
With the outbreak of World War I Hans joined the army voluntarily as this meant he could choose which regiment to serve in. His military service was marked by a series of lucky and rather humorous accidents .
Following the end of the war Kayser studied art history with Prof. Hans Preuss, and wrote a dissertation drawing parallels between Fra Angelico’s art and the Summa Theologica of Antoninus Florentinus.
By then, Kayser’s literary career had begun: 1919 saw the publication of the first volume of Der Dom: Bücher deutscher Mystik by Insel-Verlag, a collection of writings on mysticism by authors including Johannes Kepler, Jakob Böhme, and Paracelsus, edited in part by Hans Kayser.
He bought a printing press in 1922, with which he produced various small publications, mostly ephemeral; this project did not last long, but gave him some experience in book design that he would have opportunities to use later.
Kayser's Orpheus was published in 1926, followed by Der hörende Mensch (The Hearing Human) in 1932.
Life & Writings Throughout World War II
Hitler was now on the rise to power, and some of Hans’s writings had been suppressed because of his anti-Nazi sentiments. The Kaysers’ financial situation was worsening, and had they remained in Germany, there might have been great danger, since his wife Clara was of Jewish descent. They were saved by an unforeseen circumstance: Gustav Fueter (1889-1948), a prominent Swiss businessman, became Hans’s patron by moving him and his family to Switzerland and supporting him financially for two years. Like Kayser, Fueter believed that the development of harmonics as a science had the potential to improve the human condition.
Hans Kayser enjoyed a singular friendship with his first patron, instructing him in harmonics even though Hans was not a born teacher, and undertaking works in which the whole Kayser family was involved (most notably Blätter für harmonikale Forschung, a 15-volume collection of essays distributed to a very limited circle).
Due to evolving personal differences Fueter ceased his support of Kayser in 1936. Not long afterwards Clara managed to secure the patronage of Hermann Rupf, another wealthy businessman with a strong interest in the arts. This paved the way for the publication of Vom Klang der Welt (The Sound of the World, 1937),Abhandlungen zur Ektypik harmonikaler Wertformen (Essays on the Ektypics of Harmonic Value-Forms, 1938), and Grundriss eines Systems der harmonikalen Wertformen (Plan for a System of Harmonic Value-Forms, 1938); these three books would form the major part of the foundation for his Lehrbuch der Harmonik (Textbook of Harmonics).
Kayser continued to work under Rupf’s patronage during the war years, resulting in the publication of Harmonia Plantarum (1943), dedicated to the memory of his father and their botanical explorations; and the 2-volume set Harmonikale Studien (Harmonic Studies, 1946-7). The Lehrbuch was the culmination of his career, not only in its magnificently all-embracing content, but also in its presentation; the original oversize edition, produced on high-quality paper with multiple folding plates, was a testimony to Kayser’s technical knowledge as a printer and his discerning taste in design.
Hans lost his German citizenship in 1940, and was without a homeland until 1948, when he was granted the rare privilege of becoming a Swiss citizen.
A trip to southern Italy in 1954 formed the basis for Paestum (1958), a harmonic analysis of Grecian architecture that offers some astounding revelations about the designs of ancient monuments, while at the same time painting a moving and evocative picture of the harmonist’s solitary quest for ancient knowledge. In Paestum, Kayser’s great learning and wisdom are conveyed in a more fully matured style than ever before, making what would be his final work—besides Harmonikale Symbolik, published posthumously—a true masterpiece.
Kayser’s Passing & Legacy
Hans Kayser died peacefully from heart failure on April 14, 1964, after a relatively short illness. He was 73. He was survived by his wife, two daughters, and five grandchildren. He also left behind a library of approximately 4,500 volumes. During his lifetime, Kayser authored a total of 15 books and 45 essays, as well as 32 musical compositions.

Ferrera's Collected Outlooks 2008 - 2019 are like instructional manuals in the Art of Financial Forecasting, providing educational studies on market theory and technique by a highly respected forecaster.
They expand the toolbox of even seasoned traders, providing new tools and deep insights into cycles, technical analysis and Gann forecasting.
George McCormack, famous Astrometeorologist, is known for his classic Long-Range Astro Weather Forecasting, the most popular book on the Astro-Weather Forecasting.
He also produced a series of financial market forecasting newsletters called Astrotech. We have recovered the only known partial set of 400 pages of these newsletters.
A quick insight into general conditions of the market can be had by synthesizing combinations of data as simple indicators giving an overview.
Such indicators are often based on diverse data, from astrological signals, like Scott's Astronomical Market Barometer or Bradley’s Siderograph, to whether a specific market is overbought or oversold.
Gann Reading List
In the 1940’s Gann published a 2-page list of about 90 Books that he stocked and sold to his students, known as "W. D. Gann’s Recommended Reading List".
Each book contains some component of Gann’s system of knowledge essential for piecing together his system.
Any one book may have one simple idea critical to Gann's perspective.
One can learn much by studying the lives and achievements of the great thinkers who have shaped human history and culture.
In our biographical library we have a collection of rare texts which complement theoretical study by allowing deeper insight into the characters and deeds of many significant philosophers.
Glass Bead Game
This derives from a book by Hermann Hesse, representing an underlying symbolic cosmology that is the basis of all science, philosophy, spirituality and thought.
Hesse imagines a game created using universal symbols to represent flows of thought or information.
This is a metaphor for systems of esoteric symbolism underlying all knowledge.
The term "occultism" is often misunderstood by those who fear the unknown. It simply refers to "hidden knowledge" and the various esoteric traditions, such as Theosophy, Anthroposophy, Magick, Hermetics, Tarot, and Astrology.
In the Alice Baily works channeled by The Tibetan, Djwhal Khul "occultism" encompasses all high esoteric science.
There are a many important historical figures in the field of science and cosmology, like Pythagoras, Plato, Hermes, Bruno, or the misrepresented Isaac Newton.
The work of these outstanding men contributed a great deal to our extended fields of knowledge.
We specialise in books exploring the work of past masters who contributed so much.
Codes and Ciphers
We have books on symbolic codes and ciphers from various esoteric traditions, including Masonic codes.
Gann used codes in "Tunnel Through the Air", and encrypted his personal notes using a code called "Bell, Book and Candle".
Gann enthusiasts study Masonic codes to help uncover his secrets.
A branch of Chaos Theory, fractals are beautiful self-similar patterns mathematically generated from non-linear equations.
Fractals apply directly to financial market phenomena, and time-periodic market charts show that similar patterns permeate each time level.
Gann and Baumring saw common patterns foreshadowing coming events within consistent structure.
Kayser, the greatest scholar of harmonic science, was far ahead of his time, penetrating the depths of ancient esoteric Pythagorean Tradition to present a universal Law of Vibration.
His "Textbook of Harmonics" provides the most valuable insight into Gann’s Law of Vibration of any resource.
We have so far translated four of his works into English.
Natural Order has from ancient times looked deeply into principles of order behind nature and the universe, like phyllotaxis which governs the placement of leaves on plants, the harmonic ratios between the placement of the planets in the solar system, or the spirilic mathematics of galaxies.
Natural order reveals magical relationships in the natural world.
