Sacred Geometry and Connections to the Stars
Sacred Geometry is the blueprint of the universe. James will explain further on this and how the ancient cultures around the world were aware of this divine patterning. James will also talk about the sacred sites around the world and the connections he has found between them, and also show how he found an intelligent pattern within the crop circle phenomenon.

Marcus Allen
Construction of Ancient Structures
Marcus Allen is the British distributor and publisher of Nexus magazine, focusing on alternative points of view on the subjects of health, human rights, the environment, human potential and suppressed information. Marcus says his publication offers "news and information that is overlooked, unreported or ignored by the mainstream media." Tonight he will be talking about technology in ancient Egypt.

March 2nd
Glenn Lane
The Runes
There is some, lets say, ‘a variety of opinions’ to when the Runes came into practice, the oldest view is they are over 2,000 years old. The Runes themselves come from the Teutonic and Scandinavian spiritual traditions and the word ‘Rune’ itself means mystery. The Runes have been used in casting for divination, communication in the form of writing, used in protection and healing charms. Each Rune itself is a shamanic guide, for in the Poetic Edda their coming into being was indeed a shamanic experience for Odin as detailed below from the Havamal of the Edda.

April 6th
Sylvia Francke
The Mysteries of Chartres Cathedral
Sylvia Francke, author of ‘The Tree of Life and The Holy Grail.’ Is an anthroposophist, member of the RILKO (Research Into Lost Knowledge Organisation) Council, and of the Francis Bacon Society Council Chartres Cathedral, standing on an ancient sacred site south west of Paris, represents the highest achievement in the flowering of Gothic architecture. Its orientation, close to midsummer sunrise, is in contrast to the north eastern orientation of most Christian churches and it has been a place of pilgrimage for thousands of years. The iconography in stone and stained glass presents us with the rich content of the Platonically inspired teachings of the School of Chartres which flourished between the tenth and the thirteenth centuries.

May 11th

July 6th
Jonathan Black
The Sacred History of the World
The Sacred History is an account of the workings of the supernatural in history. It tells the epic story of angels, from Creation, to Evolution through to the operations of the supernatural in the modern world. This tale of how people and peoples have been helped by angels and other angelic beings is woven into a spellbinding narrative that brings together Krishna, Moses, Buddha, Elijah, Mary and Jesus, Mohammed, Joan of Arc, the angels who helped Hungarian Jews persecuted by the Nazis, and stories from African, Native American and Celtic traditions. Told from the spiritual point of view, The Sacred History relates every betrayal, every change of heart, every twist and turn, everything that looks like a coincidence, every portent, every clue, every defeat, every rescue moments before the prison door clangs shut. This is the angelic version of events.

Colin Parker
How to Read Stonehenge
An After-Sunrise Before-Sunset Guided Tour for the Discerning Visitor
Author Colin Parker has spent the last 30 years as an independent researcher of many disciplines. These include: archaeology, architecture, astronomy, Egyptology, quantum physics, religion, freemasonry, civil and mechanical engineering. Many years ago he began researching the adoption of ancient pre-history earthwork pagan sites by the early Christian churchmen, during the replacement of Paganism by Christianity in Britain. The first years were spent researching and measuring the solar-lunar orientation of pre-reformation Christian churches built within ancient pre-historic earthwork pagan sites, checking each individual site entrance and viewing horizon for possible solar-lunar orientation within the landscape. As this research progressed, he researched and measured each ancient pre-historic earthwork pagan site within the Stonehenge landscape. Perhaps their orientation and position could provide possible purposes for their construction. They were built by generations of people using antler picks and cattle shoulder blades as shovels – who would never see these huge projects finished.

September 7th
Jeremy Harte
The Yew Tree
Change of Speaker
Brooding, mysterious, and very, very old, the ancient yew trees of England have inspired magical poetry and historical speculation. Where does the poetry end and the history begin? This talk looks at the churchyard yew in literature and archaeology. It takes the story back to the cultural melting-pot of the seventh century, when Irish, Briton and Saxon met in the land of Wessex on the cusp of Christianity.

November 2nd
Gary Biltcliffe
Rediscovering the Sacred Omphalos Sites of Britain and Ireland
The earliest tribes of Britain and Ireland marked their new kingdoms by locating and honouring its navel or mid-point, constructing mounds, stone monuments or re-shaping sacred hills to create a link to the cosmos. At these centres, we find dragon pathways aligned to the sun, crossings of trackways pointing to the cardinal directions and the worship of the Fire Goddess. Gary will share his discoveries for a forthcoming book of these centres of power at the omphalos of England, Cornwall, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

December 7th
