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? A warm welcome to my friend, the formidable Andrew Collins, whose importan

Oral histories maintain that the Hopi have survived three world-ages, each destroyed by the chaos inflicted on Earth by Sky and base acts of humankind. Welcome to my friend Gary David, our author of the month for April 2018, whose multidisciplinary investigation into the Journey of the Serpent People contextualises Native American ‘pre’-history and maps its course through ‘Old World’ territory

Psychedelics were revered by ancient cultures and used to explore and expand the higher realm that we call Consciousness. Welcome to our first AoM of 2018, P.D Newman, whose reinterpretation of Masonic symbolism brings us a step closer to reconnecting with the higher wisdom teachings of cultures in deep antiquity. Happy New Year!

Fundamental to the Consciousness Revolution is the bridging of modern science with ancient wisdom traditions.

John was a good man, and a brilliant researcher unfairly maligned by academic so-called “skeptics” who completely, and in most cases deliberately, misunderstood and misrepresented his work. In getting to grips with the mystery of the Mayan calendar, it is only the astronomy that counts – and naked-eye astronomy at that. We are not talking about radio telescopes or astrophysics here. “With reg

Welcome Stephen! Your book is excellent and I'm looking forward to some thought-provoking discussions here. Thank you so much for joining us. Cannabis, one of the most controversial organisms to modern humankind, is also one of the most materially and non-materially productive plants on Earth.

I agreed to write the Foreword to "The Forgotten Exodus" because it is my strong intuition that Bruce Fenton is onto something of great importance with this new book. It's a hot topic and some will perhaps find it too politically incorrect for their taste, but that should never deter free inquiry into the mysteries of the human past. Bruce will be answering questions and engaging in deb

Hi Sally, thank you for your thoughts. Yes I know the violence in Entangled is a tough and repellent read. Believe me it was a tough write too! But none of the horrors described there were made up.

Unfortunately Entangled fell foul of its UK publishers (the main publishers), Random House, who didn't support it after my editor left. In fact the new people who took it over seemed to hate it!! I couldn't bear working with them and cancelled the contract for Vol 2 and repaid the advance. Then I went with my old editor in his new publishing house but for a number of reasons we couldn't immediate

You make excellent points here, Carl. Much food for thought. And in my view you are absolutely right -- understanding what psychedelics do and the proper performance of archaeology are indeed closely related. Apart from a notable few individuals whose minds appear to be open, psychedelics represent a profound blind spot for archaeologists, even though their use was integral to so many ancient cul
