The Esoteric Quarterly was established in 2004 under the sponsorship of the School for Esoteric Studies, Asheville, North Carolina. John Nash, founding editor, continues to serve as Consulting Editor. Donna Brown was appointed Editor-in-Chief in 2008.

Volume 9, number 1, Spring 2013, was the first issue of the Quarterly published as an independent journal. The decision to spin off the Quarterly as an independent entity was beneficial to both parties. For our journal it provided an opportunity to reach out to a larger readership and perhaps to establish relationships with a number of esoteric schools. Meanwhile, we express our sincere thanks to the School for Esoteric Studies for its support during the Quarterly’s formative years and also acknowledge that copyright of material through volume 8 remains with the School for Esoteric Studies.
