Product Description

About the Author

Stuart Wilson was born in Exmouth in the West of England. He came from a conventional background and went to a Scottish public school (Fettes in Edin-burgh). However his mother was fascinated by theosophy and the writings of Alice Bailey, and this led to Stuart's lifelong interest in esoteric teachings and the Eastern and Western wisdom traditions. After service in the RAF on Christmas Island in the Pacific, he entered advertising as an agency copywriter, rising over some years to become an advertising manager for an industrial company. He then retrained as a counselor and set up a small publishing business, which he later sold to concentrate on writing. He wrote two best-selling name dictionaries, including Simply the Best Baby Name Book, and moved in 1990 to help his friend Joanna Prentis with the development of the Starlight Centre in mid-Devon. He writes of this period: "It was inspiring and fascinating but also exhausting! A stream of visitors came in to the Centre, mainly from the United States and Australia, but some also from Europe. We had an amazing and mind-expanding time sitting at the feet of internationally respected spiritual teachers and workshop leaders. What I remember most about this time was the big gatherings when our friends came in to share a meal and talk about our experiences and all the changes that were happening in our lives. It was a wonderful time, full of joy and laughter, and the special events, like Anna Mitchell Hedges sharing her crystal skull, and the two fire-walks led by Esassani, were simply magical!" Joanna Prentis: I was born in Bangalore in southern India. When I was two my family returned to Scotland where I spent my childhood and teenage years. After leaving school I traveled exten-sively, married and lived in Hong Kong for two years and then ten years in the Australian bush in Western Australia, where my three daughters were born. It was there that my interest began in alternative medicine and education, organ

This really is an excellent book. It answers so many questions. Like: who were the Essenes? Where did they live, and when? What did they believe? Where did these ideas come from? And what happened to them after the crucifixion?

There is much that we will never know... but this book gives a useful insight into the life and times of this most important community... and why they had to be so secretive.

Some (like me) may find the contents strangely familiar. It is as if we have known all along... a memory buried deep inside. Perhaps we were there also... in a previous life; I don't know.

But it might explain why I was not surprised to find Mary (the mother of Jesus), her brother Joseph of Arimathea, her husband Joseph, their son James... and Mary Magdalene... at the very centre of things.

It might also explain why I was never completely comfortable with the "traditional" teachings of Christianity. Somehow, the simple "message" got corrupted over the years... (probably) in the name of politics, power, and religious dogma... and just look at the mess that we have got ourselves into as a result!

If only we had followed the "original" teachings of Jesus, the Essene Way.

But all is not lost... there are encouraging signs that the Truth is finally getting out to the people... and that we are at last recognising the need to return to a sense of "oneness" with God, the World and all of Creation.

Hopefully, it is not too late...

This book is excellent. No question. It provides the reader with an in depth view of what it was like living at the time of Jesus, with the community of which he was part - the Essenes. It gives us huge amounts of new information about the Essenes, who were, in effect, Jesus's support group. It also gives us new information about Joseph of Arimathea, the uncle of Jesus, whose business dealings and contacts allowed him to do so much to protect Jesus and those around him. In addition, there are many fresh and sweeet spiritual insights. And if all that is not enough, it's very well-written and easy to read.

If you are interested in the life of Jesus you must read this book. The story is told from past life regressions of souls who were contempories of Jesus. A fascinating insight into the spiritual powers of the Essenes who inherited their knowledge from descendants of the people of Atlantis.

It is timely evidence in the beginning of the Aquarian age and follows on from the work of Dolores Cannon 'Jesus and The Essenes'.

A fascinating enlightening journey back in time, that I absolutely loved reading! Thank you Joanna and Stuart!
If you haven't read " Power of the magdalene" go get it and read that too. I am just coming to the end of it and it is even more amazing! There is just so much I wanted and needed to know in these two books!

For me this book addresses the glaring lack of information in the Bible about how to treat the Earth and all Creation that lives upon it. The way of life of the Essenes and their relationship with Jesus is beautifully and movingly laid out. This book will refresh your spirit and strengthen your purpose on this planet. A bold claim yes, but it will, because it will lead you to other books by this author, guaranteed. If you've been drawn to this book then buy it, because you know there are no such things as coincidences!

Well, theirs was a beautiful way of life. I think we could still live like that but not necessarily in tunics, sandals and no make-up! These people were taught a way of life by an advanced society. Should we ever choose to mirror it I feel we should be equally progressive and not hold ourselves back by denouncing modern technologies which seems to happen when people start recreating some alternative lifestyle from the past. But this book is a joy in that it opens the door to the world as Jesus knew it. Stuart Wilson has stumbled upon people who `were there` and it`s never an accident. I for one, am delighted and grateful that he did. The teachings of Christ have been re- interpreted by scribes over the centuries so it`s refreshing to read how things really were. I know Jesus would not want us to look back and try to create any more scripture from these channeled books. I feel this infornmation is more a frame work for us. We can then use it to spring- board into the future with a clearer understanding of what he was trying to achieve. The wisdom of his teaching is timeless. This book brings a lovely energy (they all do) I hoovered it up, I hope you do too! xx

I loved this book. It brought together some fascinating past life recalls which really resonated with me.The accounts of the Essenes involvement with Jesus made for me a lot of sense. I was particularly interested in the take on the how the teachings of Jesus were far more simple and heart centred than formal religion would have it. I would highly recommend this book to anyone with an enquiring mind interested in the similarities between the challenging times of today with the experiences, feelings and philosophies of the Essenes.
