SHINING ONES Philip Gardiner
Are you ready for an extraordinary story of intrigue and power-play with a twist of deep spiritual truth? Long before the dawn of recorded civilization, in an era named the Golden Age, a mysterious shamanic priesthood developed a powerful method of attaining spiritual ecstasy. These priests were The Shining Ones - members of an advanced culture whose wisdom and power has been carried in esoteric symbolism, through mythology, legend and secret codes embedded in art, architecture, the mystery traditions and literary works, by the likes of the Knights Templar, the Rosicrucians and the Freemasons. Their mission is to preserve the ancient knowledge - to serve humanity and to influence the development of the world. In deciphering the Shining Ones' clues, Philip Gardiner and Gary Osborn show how the mysteries of the world can now be solved, from megalithic standing stones, the Holy Grail and alchemy to the truth behind religion and our present political systems. After all this time, what is their relevance now?
