“This excellent liquor of knowledge, whether it descend from divine inspiration or spring from human sense, would soon perish and vanish to oblivion if it were not preserved in books, traditions, conferences, and places appointed.”
Francis Bacon: Advancement of Learning, Bk I - 1605

Second-Seeing Shakespeare

Peter Dawkins

In this Sherlockian investigation, historian Peter Dawkins uncovers clues hiding in plain sight which show that the prima facie evidence suggesting that William Shakspeare of Stratford-upon-Avon wrote the Shakespeare works is not what it seems. Instead, it is a double-truth showing a very different authorship, and the involvement of a philanthropic secret society dedicated to the enlightenment and good of all humanity.

Shakespeare Enigma by Peter Dawkins

The Shakespeare Enigma

Peter Dawkins

Foreword by Mark Rylance

This groundbreaking and exhaustively researched book is a fascinating voyage of discovery that reads like an Elizabethan thriller. It draws aside the veils concealing the truth concerning Shakespeare, to reveal the real author or authors of the Shakespeare plays, the involvement with the Rosicrucians, and the treasure trail or game of hide-and-seek set up by them as a mystery to train us in an 'art of discovery' by which all things might be known.

Beautifully illustrated, this book will appeal to all literary-minded people, scholars and non-scholars alike, those interested in esoteric wisdom or the Shakespeare authorship, and anyone involved in drama and arts education.

Core Truths

Peter Dawkins

What are Core Truths? They are the essential wisdom teachings and laws that allow us to live harmoniously with ourselves and with Nature, and encompass not just a vision of ourselves within our environment but also of ourselves in relationship to the wider cosmos.

Drawing on the Wisdom traditions of the West, such as the Rosicrucian, Neoplatonic, Hermetic, Magian, Hebraic, Orphic, Classical, Celtic and Christian traditions, Core Truths presents the fundamental truths known to these ancient traditions updated with new discoveries and insights for the world of today, including geocosmology. Understanding and working with these truths enhances our lives and all that we do, bringing joy and fulfilment.

This richly illustrated work addresses the three basic archetypes of the Wheel of Life, the Chakra system and the Tree of Life. These are the basic patterns expressed not just within Man but also within all Nature. Special beings called landscape angels embody these archetypes. They guide our lives and model the landscape according to natural patterns and laws.

For those seeking the initiatory path to enlightenment, these core truths of perennial wisdom light the way. They help us to understand how to use space and time to the best advantage in our lives and our environment, creating beauty and harmony, and leading to a deep connection and expression of true humanity in both a simple yet comprehensive way.

Building Paradise by Peter Dawkins

Building Paradise

Peter Dawkins

This revealing book explains clearly and succinctly the Baconian/Rosicrucian 'Six Days Work' - a highly practical, creative method and labour of love, designed on Kabbalistic, Neoplatonic and Christian principles, by means of which we might discover all truth and build paradise on earth. A central feature of this method is theatre, as represented by the Shakespeare plays and the initiation dramas of Freemasonry.

Francis Bacon - Herald of the New Age

Francis Bacon - Herald of the New Age

Peter Dawkins

Written simply but based on wide-ranging in-depth research, this book reveals Sir Francis Bacon as a Master of Hermetic Wisdom and a remarkable man of illumination. We learn that his purpose was to lead mankind to the light, providing an 'art of discovery' by which all things might be known, even the supreme truth and law of life, Love.

A man much misunderstood, misquoted and maligned, Sir Francis Bacon developed an all-embracing philanthropic philosophy, vision and method of operation by means of which the world could build a golden age of wisdom, peace, prosperity and sustainability for all, if it wanted to. Bacon always understood that his method and science was not for all and would probably never be part of mainstream science, as it requires total commitment to philanthropy or charity, but he hoped that one day it would exist side by side with mainstream science and help to guide and illuminate the latter.
