Why transhumanism can never work, and why I’m betting on Venus

I went through a period in my early teens of being an atheist, mainly because my prayers to the god they kept telling me about were falling on stony ground. The Christian church’s deity just wasn’t working for me. And so I gave up all belief in any kind of divinity until I started my…

King for a Year and a Day

There is a consensus among ancient history researchers that the “king for a year and a day” was actually a practice of the Irish, Welsh and Scots during pre-Christian times. However, historians in the main do not have the right lenses to interpret ancient myths, and are blind to metaphor. So they end up weaving…

What to read during the lockdown – Stories in the Stars

We may be feeling stuck in our isolation, in our separation from each other, with each Groundhog Day seeming exactly the same. We’ve mowed the lawn, pruned back the buddleia, tidied up the clematis …so now, what next? What we’re experiencing may seem like stasis. However, it’s more like a fission reaction blur of possibilities,…

More evidence of sacred shamanic sexual rites in Anglo Saxon Britain

I know many who read my book The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar were convinced, by the sheer volume of evidence presented, that sacred sex rites attended the coronation rituals of kings all over the world thousands of years ago. But some may have had their doubts about whether the same practice was going on…

How St Thomas Aquinas could guide us through the information war into the Aquarian Age

It seems to me that we have a Lost Generation that is wandering around and latching on to any seemingly “just cause” as a sleepwalker would blindly grab the bannisters along the landing. This is not their fault. Man lives on stories, and if he is not given the right story upon which to map…

The Ecstasy of the Heart

This is probably one of most powerfully metamorphic shamanic healing techniques that you will ever practise – and you don’t even have to be a shaman to do it. Anyone can do the Ecstasy of the Heart and benefit enormously from it – anyone who has a heart. And it will not only change how…

An Epiphany about Epiphany

The celebration of Epiphany on January 6th marks the arrival of the three kings from the Orient who followed the star to the stable of the baby Jesus, bearing him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. However, it would probably pass by practically unnoticed were it not also the day when we take down our…

What is Great Art? And what does it have to do with spiritual progress?

The term “the Great Art” comes from medieval times and it refers to the art of alchemy, which has, at the heart of its raison d’etre, the many-stepped alchemical process that culminates in the Philosopher’s Stone. The science of alchemy found a way to use various forms of art – by which I mean stories,…

Thanksgiving and the Magic of the Dragon Clans

The convenient myth is that the American Founding Fathers were Deists and that the New World pilgrims first learned about the ceremony of Thanksgiving from Native Americans. The inconvenient truth is that the Founding Fathers were the offspring of the mystically-inclined Dragon Clans who, in the 17th century, were hounded out of Britain in a…

The Destination of the Mythological Hero and the Perpetual Choirs

The sole and soul purpose of the journey of the mythological hero is for him to ultimately join the perpetual choirs that are continually and joyously singing the praises of this magnificent creation, the resonance from the song lines of which fertilises and sustains its overarching, magnitudinal majesty. At night, the Moon and the stars…

For the Protection of the Honey Isles

It is little remembered because its meaning has been buried under the sands of time, but the British Isles was at one time referred to, by those who spoke the hidden language, as the Isles of Honey. In those slower-paced days, it was a green and pleasant land which was renown for its tangled orchards…
