A Basic Guide to Technopathic Stress

Book Review by Roy Riggs ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Many leading scientists today believe that the increasing amount of computers and other electronic devices within our homes could be making us ill. Research has now linked these higher levels of electromagnetic radiation and consequential dirty electricity to increases in autism, cancer, depression and Alzheimer’s disease. In his fascinating and well-researched book Grahame Gardner explains and guides readers through a tour of their domestic dwellings, exposing many hidden dangers you wouldn’t expect. Grahame’s complete command of the subject allows him to express in straightforward and accessible language how many of … Continue reading A Basic Guide to Technopathic Stress

Dowsing Magic

Review: Dowsing Magic by Grahame Gardner Reviewed by Simon Wheeler Over the years I have prepared and given – and been subjected to – many PowerPoint lectures/presentations. When you know your subject well it is tricky knowing how much detail to go into, what assumptions to make about the audience, what handouts you should have to distribute, how much to say when diverted by an interesting question, and when to stop. No matter how well you have prepared, no matter how often you give the same presentation, each one will be different. Which is probably how it should be; after … Continue reading Dowsing Magic

Touchstones for Today

Touchstones for Today – Designing for Earth Harmony with Stone Arrangements by Alanna Moore The subtitle of this new book by Alanna Moore is ‘Designing for Earth Harmony with Stone Arrangements’, but it could equally well be ‘Everything You Need to Know About Stones’, such is the range of the subject matter. This is an updated and greatly expanded version of her 2005 book ‘The Magic of Menhirs & Circles of Stone’. The first part of the book looks at the traditional uses of stones and stone formations in cultures around the world, from the healing (and cursing) stones and … Continue reading Touchstones for Today

The Alchemy of Light

This has very little to do with geomancy, but I do have an interesting connection with it – when I came across this projection mapping video by Joel Sebastian, I was pleasantly surprised (and flattered) to discover that Joel is using one of my sacred geometry diagrams for his logo at the end of the video. As I’m also a lighting designer,  I can really appreciate the work that went into making this video. It’s a really fantastic demonstration of projection mapping technology, something that used to cost a great deal of  money to do but can now be done … Continue reading The Alchemy of Light

The Spine of Albion

The Spine of Albion, by Gary Biltcliffe and Caroline Hoare I have not anticipated the publication of a book for longer than this one. It’s been in the pipeline for over 15 years, and now at last it’s finally here! Following the ‘serpenteering’ tradition popularised by Hamish Miller & Paul Broadhurst, The Spine of Albion documents the several pilgrimages taken by Gary Biltcliffe and Caroline Hoare to chart the course of the male and female serpent currents surrounding Britain’s longest alignment, the Belinus Line. Beginning on the Isle of Wight, the alignment bisects the country almost vertically, passing through six … Continue reading The Spine of Albion

Something Unknown

…Is Doing We Don’t Know What. I first came across this film on Alex Tsakaris’ Skeptiko podcast, where he interviewed the film maker Renée Scheltema. It’s also mentioned on Dean Radin’s blog – perhaps not surprising, as Dean features quite heavily in the film! Following three very personal psychic experiences, Renée set out to investigate and interview the top researchers in the field of parapsychology and documents her journey of discovery along the way. It covers the ‘Big 5’ of psi – Clairvoyance, Precognition, Telepathy, Psychokinesis and Healing, and features interviews with the likes of Dean Radin, Rupert Sheldrake, Hal … Continue reading Something Unknown

How the World is Made

(well, A4 paper at any rate) I’ve just finished reading one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever had the pleasure of holding in my hands  – John Michell’s final work (with Allan Brown), How the World is Made – The Story of Creation According to Sacred Geometry. Everything about it screams quality; the proportions, the paper, the typeface, the layout, the content, and of course the 300+ beautiful watercolours of John’s sacred geometry illustrations, brought to rich, vibrant life on the page. To open the book is to step into a world of wonder and enlightenment, where every turn … Continue reading How the World is Made
