Just as the beehive is an ancient symbol of knowledge, so the bee is an initiate and Arcadia the landscape on which it feeds. Immerse yourself, and taste the honey that wisdom brings.
I love the notion of Arcadia; a paradise or golden age lost in antiquity, preserved in mythology, and commemorated by countless generations. In harmony with this theme, I’ve chosen the motif of a bee entering a hive - brilliantly designed by Mark Foster - as a symbol of an initiate's immersion in knowledge, for this is what a beehive represents, esoterically; the collective wisdom of the ages.
Arcadia provides a perspective on history's mysteries. And while it features my writing, research and insights, it also showcases the new and fascinating ideas of others, both in the Forum and in Guest Articles. Want to share your work? Well then, this is your chance.
Welcome to Arcadia. Now that you’ve entered the hive, isn’t it time you immersed yourself in the mysteries?
Arcadia is a state of mind.
Thank you for visiting.
I’ve been an enthusiast of esoterica for decades and study with the Cabalist who mentored Jean Cocteau and Salvador Dali. I am also the editor-in-chief of The Heretic Magazine, an innovative new quarterly magazine that features the biggest and brightest new names in the world of the esoteric and alternative history genres. As Director of the Institute of Interdisciplinary Sciences (ISIS), and Chairman of the long running esoteric research society, The Rennes Group, I understand your desire for knowledge and quest for truth. I’ve written for journals and publications of all kinds and decoded Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code in the bestselling book, The Dan Brown Companion (Mainstream 2006). Most recently, I contributed ‘The Sacred Bee in Egypt’ to Philip Gardiner’s, The Ancient Code: The Book, and was the featured speaker in a documentary on the Mysteries of Girona. My current projects include a television documentary entitled The Lost Tradition of the Sacred Bee.
I’ve traveled the ancient world and cataloged ancient rock art in Egypt’s vast and unspoiled eastern desert. I’m an active speaker on the lecture circuit and a regular guest - and interviewer - on ‘Gardiner’s World’; a syndicated talk show that is broadcast to over 40 million viewers across the globe. Originally from Chicago, I currently live and work in London.
