According to Andean Elders and the Dalai Lama the most powerful center of earth energies shifted from the Himalayas
(masculine energy) to the Andes (feminine energy) a little over 17 years ago.

Since that time, many serious spiritual seekers have been drawn to come home
to the powerful nurturing energies of the Andes, to connect with the Pachamama, the Mother Earth,
for their own personal healing.

The ancient Inca legend of the Pachacuti ("Turning of the World") or the New Dawn or New Sunrise
says that when the Eagle from the North flies with the Condor from the South,
peace will return to the Americas and spread throughout our world.

Travel with us to meet your Condor brothers and sisters
and experience the peace of the Pachamama
as Her Children extend to you their heartfelt welcome to this spiritual wonderland.

You'll be able to participate in the connection of the energies with your South American
"Condor" Brothers and Sisters....assisting in the fulfillment of the ancient prophecy of returning peace to our Earth!

Bonnie Scotland beckons you to come and explore its vast beauty and immeasurable treasures!

History buffs, archeologists, nature lovers and the adoring connoisseurs of quaint and regal Scottish culture
will all find something to cherish in this magnificent land of wind-swept emerald hills, pastures and glens.

Scotland’s historical tradition dates back to 3500 BCE and includes many of the oldest Neolithic settlements in Europe,
including Kilmartin Glen, Temple Wood Stone Circle, and Maes Howe in the Orkney Islands.

Scotland-Orkneys-StonesOfStennes-1.jpg (13436 bytes)

The magic of the Celts and their enlightened Druids also survives in Scotland at many power spots, such as the Island of Iona,
which was anciently known as the “Island of the Druids.”

Scotland is, of course, the land of the fiercely independent Scots,
the hardy breed of bagpipe-playing Highlanders clothed in colorful tartan kilts
who courageously threw off the yoke of the imperialist English.
It is the land of the indomitable Scottish leader William Wallace (remember Braveheart?),
as well as the adopted home of the mighty Knights Templar
who helped the Scots achieve independence at the Battle of Bannockburn
and then deposited their esoteric secrets and Holy Grail treasures in such mysterious places as Rosslyn Chapel.

If you listen closely you can still hear the voices of the ancient Knights echoing throughout the land: “Come to Scotland,”
they say,  “the land where great mystery and adventure never sleeps!”

Astrologer, Shamanic Practitioner, Researcher & Teacher of the Goddess Tradition and Ancient Megalithic History
Author of
The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom
and four other books about the esoteric history of our planet.
and Andrea Mikana-Pinkham
Researcher & Teacher of the Goddess Tradition and Ancient Megalithic History
Mark and Andrea have been leading spiritual pilgrimages yearly to Egypt since 2000.

IMPORTANT!
Registration closes October 2, 2014, or sooner if the group fills before that date.
In order to be assured of your place in the group, we encourage you to register NOW!


The November 2014 Sacred Journey of Initiation offers you a unique opportunity to come to Egypt
for a life-altering experience 
that will transform you in many positive ways!

Egypt is the ancient home of the rites of spiritual initiation and dramatic transformation (alchemy).
Legends state that Thoth-Hermes brought these rites from Atlantis and then oversaw the construction
of numerous temples and pyramids throughout Egypt to facilitate them.

Thoth-Hermes.jpg (22107 bytes)

Our Sacred Journey of Initiation is scheduled to correspond to the period when these temples
will have their strongest impact on us.
At that time in November 2014 all the transiting planets will either be in Scorpio, the sign of initiation
and transformation, or will be intimately influenced by those that are.


Egypt-Djed-Ani.gif (24324 bytes)      
Like the enlightened initiates of old, our journey will commence as we enter the reactivated temples
and pyramids of Egypt and undergo special alchemical rites.
For example, in
Abydos, home of the Osirian Mysteries, we will study the alchemical hieroglyphs
which explain the process of initiation and transformation as the Osirian adepts once knew it.
We will also pay homage to all those initiates by visiting the adjoining 12,000 year tomb of the archetypal initiate, Osiris.

Our journey of transformation will be highlighted by the special rites and meditations observed
in the
Temple of Isis in Philae, the Temple of Sobek/Haeoris in Kom-Ombo, the Temple of Horus at Edfu,
the
Temple of Hathor at Dendera, and the Sekhmet Chapel and Temple of Ra in Karnak.
The final and most dynamic initiation will occur in the
King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid!
Finally, just as the Osirian adepts did thousands of years before us, each of us will rise resurrected from the "sarcophagus"
as spiritually reborn initiates in the most ancient tradition of Thoth-Hermes.


Egypt-Neters-Ani.gif (126444 bytes)

During our daily on-site meditations, you'll receive transformative initiations from the Neters
(the Egyptian Gods & Goddesses who are aspects of Nature and your own consciousness).

The magic of the Celts and their enlightened Druids also survives in Scotland at many power spots, such as the Island of Iona,
which was anciently known as the “Island of the Druids.”

Scotland is, of course, the land of the fiercely independent Scots,
the hardy breed of bagpipe-playing Highlanders clothed in colorful tartan kilts
who courageously threw off the yoke of the imperialist English.
It is the land of the indomitable Scottish leader William Wallace (remember Braveheart?),
as well as the adopted home of the mighty Knights Templar
who helped the Scots achieve independence at the Battle of Bannockburn
and then deposited their esoteric secrets and Holy Grail treasures in such mysterious places as Rosslyn Chapel.

If you listen closely you can still hear the voices of the ancient Knights echoing throughout the land: “Come to Scotland,”
they say,  “the land where great mystery and adventure never sleeps!”

NOVEMBER  2014: EGYPT
Sacred Journey of Initiation

Egypt-Sphinx.jpg (12151 bytes)

With Mark Amaru Pinkham
Astrologer, Shamanic Practitioner, Researcher & Teacher of the Goddess Tradition and Ancient Megalithic History
Author of
The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom
and four other books about the esoteric history of our planet.
and Andrea Mikana-Pinkham
Researcher & Teacher of the Goddess Tradition and Ancient Megalithic History
Mark and Andrea have been leading spiritual pilgrimages yearly to Egypt since 2000.

This Sacred Sites Journey to EGYPT is open to 16 people. The group is already half full.
IMPORTANT!
Registration closes October 2, 2014, or sooner if the group fills before that date.
In order to be assured of your place in the group, we encourage you to register NOW!


The November 2014 Sacred Journey of Initiation offers you a unique opportunity to come to Egypt
for a life-altering experience 
that will transform you in many positive ways!

Egypt is the ancient home of the rites of spiritual initiation and dramatic transformation (alchemy).
Legends state that Thoth-Hermes brought these rites from Atlantis and then oversaw the construction
of numerous temples and pyramids throughout Egypt to facilitate them.

Our Sacred Journey of Initiation is scheduled to correspond to the period when these temples
will have their strongest impact on us.
At that time in November 2014 all the transiting planets will either be in Scorpio, the sign of initiation
and transformation, or will be intimately influenced by those that are.

Like the enlightened initiates of old, our journey will commence as we enter the reactivated temples
and pyramids of Egypt and undergo special alchemical rites.
For example, in
Abydos, home of the Osirian Mysteries, we will study the alchemical hieroglyphs
which explain the process of initiation and transformation as the Osirian adepts once knew it.
We will also pay homage to all those initiates by visiting the adjoining 12,000 year tomb of the archetypal initiate, Osiris.

Our journey of transformation will be highlighted by the special rites and meditations observed
in the
Temple of Isis in Philae, the Temple of Sobek/Haeoris in Kom-Ombo, the Temple of Horus at Edfu,
the
Temple of Hathor at Dendera, and the Sekhmet Chapel and Temple of Ra in Karnak.
The final and most dynamic initiation will occur in the
King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid!
Finally, just as the Osirian adepts did thousands of years before us, each of us will rise resurrected from the "sarcophagus"
as spiritually reborn initiates in the most ancient tradition of Thoth-Hermes.

World Gnosis: The Coming Gnostic Civilization

WorldGnosisCover-Sm.jpg (31585 bytes)

Gnostic Templar Grand Prior Mark Amaru Pinkham presents the amazing history and teachings of the Left Hand Path
- which includes the world's gnostics, alchemists, shamans, Secret Societies, and mystery school initiates
- and its continual battle with the patriarchal adherents of the Right Hand Path.

Mark begins with the Garden of Eden and the Gnostics' First Instructor, the Serpent on the Tree,
and then traces the Left Hand Path down through the Sons and Daughters of Seth
to the Essenes, Sufis, Knights Templar, Cathars, Freemasons and the Illuminati,
as their plans for the creation of a One-World Gnostic Civilization gradually unfold.
The final stage of the plan is about to occur!

Praise for World Gnosis

"WORLD GNOSIS must surely be the most authoritative book on its subject ever written.
Mark Amaru has woven together a rich and fascinating history of Gnostic myth and legend from the dawn of human self-awareness through to today
- and then he provides guidance on how we can all move forward to a better, reunited world. Simply brilliant!"
Christopher Knight, co-author of The Hiram Key

"Prophetic, inspired, superbly written, authoritative in its scholarship, World Gnosis: The Coming Gnostic Civilization by Mark Amaru Pinkham
is destined to become a classic of Esoterica." 
Brad Steiger, author of Revelation: The Divine Fire and
co-author of Conspiracies and Secret Societies: The Complete Dossier.  


"WORLD GNOSIS is, above all, a learned book. And a learned book in an era of throw-away scribblings and sound bites is a wondrous thing to be revered and cherished. Between these covers is a great distillation of academic and mystical histories, linked with the kind of love the old Gnostics would heartily approve of."
Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince, authors of
The Templar Revelation: Secret Guardians of the True Identity of Christ


"It is now time to become conscious that we are a bridge between heaven and earth,
and that we must manifest higher, divine principles on this planet in order to discover our inner, divine nature.
To accomplish this, it is indispensable to reconcile, as Mark says in this enlightening book,
the Left and Right Hand Paths, and the Gnostics are the progenitors of the new unified path."
Grand Chancellor Francesco Corallini Garampi, OSMTH Italy

"It is said that the Pen is mightier than the Sword and Mark has proved just that point with WORLD GNOSIS.
A must read for all seekers of the truth. Well researched and well written."
Grand Prior Ian Sinclair KGCTpl, Scottish Knight Templars

More About Mark...
redball.gif (144 bytes) Life Experience

Mark has been gathering the wisdom contained within his books since 1976 when, at 21, he traveled across Europe and Asia to India. He resided for seven years within the ashrams of the yoga and meditation master Swami Muktananda. During that time Mark intensively studied the Hindu scriptures, as well as the wisdom compiled by the Theosophists of India regarding the secret history of Earth. Since 1996, Mark has been a student of Mata Amritanandamayi, the "hugging saint" from India, and has resided in her ashram in south India. 

Since 1990 Mark has been involved in intensive research regarding the secret mysteries of the Earth’s esoteric history. During this time Mark has been initiated into two Andean esoteric societies, apprenticed to a master shaman in Peru, and helped lead an expedition in search of a secret monastery in the Andes. While leading tours he is  continuously gathering new information about the esoteric origins and the lineages of spiritual teachers that have guided humanity’s spiritual destiny.

Mark was the Co-organizer and Featured Speaker for the 2012 Sedona: Birthing the Fifth World conference, held in Sedona, AZ Dec 19 - 21, 2012.
