Stories about an occult order secretly running a small town are the fodder of horror novels. Yet in early twentieth century New Zealand, the Order of the Golden Dawn thrived. In his book Beyond the Sun, Author of the Month for July, Nick Farrell, investigates the strange story of Whare Ra, the last bastion of the Order of the Golden Dawn. More here:

Ancient cultures separated by vast distances mirrored heaven on the ground by employing 'earth to sky' architecture in their ground plans. That doing so unquestionably required knowledge of complex astronomy and geometry is a great curiosity indeed, and a topic being puzzled on increasingly by scholars and independent researchers alike.

Shamanism can be described as ‘consciousness activism’ that exists in similar but different forms among indigenous cultures around the world.

The Egyptians, among other ancient cultures, understood reality as "magic". Understanding how and why "magic" constituted their reality but became and has remained unreality to ours is fundamental to re-awakening consciousness in technological societies and reversing toxic materialism.

A hike in the New England woods with Glenn Kreisberg is always a fascinating and enlightening experience, and its been my privilege to join him on several of those hikes looking into the landscape archaeology and archaeoastronomy of the region. This is an important and under-researched subject about which we must learn if we are to understand ancient American prehistory. It is a pleasure to welc

It is my great pleasure, and honour, to welcome the renowned Dr. Gabor Maté as our featured author for October 2018 with his important book 'In the Realm of the Hungry Ghosts'. Countering prevailing notions of addiction as either a genetic disease or an individual moral failure, Dr. Maté presents an eloquent case that addiction – all addiction – is in fact a case of human development gone askew.

Some of the greatest mysteries of our time concern the very recently discovered species of human called the Denisovans: Who were these people? What were they like? To what extent do they fit in with our story of human evolution? On the contrary, could their evidential trail rewrite the story we have hitherto written?
