“…Although a very mature, serious and in many ways learned study and in no way to imply a simplistic form, there is also about it the originality, freshness, zest and sheer joie de vivre of some of the much beloved adventure stories of my childhood – an irresistible and all too rare combination.” BT
“As Don and Wen work their way through these sites of wonder, their insights and discussions are shared with the reader and there is a level of inner knowledge of the Mysteries that does remind me of The Zelator. The quest itself from place to place, always guided by the Kites, with the discovery of various symbols and potential meanings along the way is a little reminiscent of The Da Vinci Code. However, this is a work of Art and it is very definitely unique.” GMV
“Within the adventure are lessons on mysticism as Wen and Don study the churches and find a mystery in the architecture and stained glass windows. Their written journey is punctuated with myths, tales, visions and a story from another time.” RA

Adventures in Sacred Chromatography
Sue Vincent & Stuart France
Foreword by Steve Tanham
Imagine wandering through an ancient landscape wrought in earth and stone, exploring the sacred sites of peoples long ago and far away in time and history. The mounds and barrows whisper legends of heroes and magic, painted walls sing of saints and miracles and vision seeps through the cracks of consciousness.
Now imagine that the lens of the camera captures a magical light in soft blues and misty greens and gold. A light that seems to have no cause in physical reality. What would you do?
If you were open to the possibility of deeper realities, perhaps you would wish to explore this strange phenomenon…something two people came to know as sacred chromatography.
The Initiate is the story of just such a journey beyond the realms of our accustomed normality. It is a factual tale told in a fictional manner. In this way did the Bards of old hide in the legends and deeds of heroes those deeper truths for those who had eyes to see and ears to hear.
As the veils thin and waver, time shifts and the present is peopled with the shadowy figures of the past, weaving their tales through a quest for understanding and opening wide the doors of perception for those who seek to see beyond the surface of reality.

THE HEART OF ALBION:
Tales from the Wondrous Head
Stuart France & Sue Vincent
“If I am consciously following a woman who is about to engage a Llama in conversation, which I certainly appear to be, it does not impinge too negatively upon my thought processes.”
What does Jack and the Beanstalk have to do with a spiritual quest? What, for that matter, is the nature of the relationship between Salome and the Jester? Why is Wen conversing with a llama in the Yorkshire Dales? And what links the beautiful and sacred landscape that is the Heart of Albion with Breakfast in Slug Town? These, and many other questions, must be considered as Don and Wen continue the journey begun in The Initiate exploring the shadowy roots of the ancient myths and legends of these Blessed Isles, steering a perilous path through the murky waters of religious symbolism and iconography.
“Breakfast in Slug Town?”
Join them on their continuing quest for knowledge and understanding as they explore the landscape of England and people it with strange creatures and even stranger theories, using sacred intent and guided imagination to penetrate into the mysteries unfolding before them.

Rhyme and Reason
Stuart France and Sue Vincent
It began with a walk over the bracken covered hillsides of Derbyshire to a lonely stone circle, almost forgotten. It was just a walk…until the hawk flew from the tree and once again the visions began.
Plunged into a realm beyond reality, further than history, deeper than time, Don and Wen begin to unravel the hidden messages hidden in plain sight, concealed by habit and acceptance, and extraordinary magic framed within the small things of ordinary life.
Follow a journey across the Heart of Albion and become an Initiate of the mysterious verity of verse.
“Interesting that they should seek to make the seven four like that.”
“Three harmonic pairs and a jubilant head?”
“It reminds me of something biblical.”
“It wouldn’t be Jubilees would it? The Hebrews, you know, took an awful lot with them when they fled from Egypt.”
“I know, but it’s not Jubilees, although that does bear some consideration. It’s the three-score years and ten! It’s precisely the same dynamic. In fact, we even raised the question of whether there was anything in the tradition appertaining to it.”
“And now we have our answer!”
“The Hebrew’s Divinely sanctioned earthly span of life is determined by the Seven Hathors.”
