The Initiate.. Free on Kindle!

The book begins and ends with a riddle… and you can join us Don and Wen on the adventure. It all started with a trip to the White Horse at Uffington and the ancient stone circle at Rollright…

“We don’t have any guns.”

“I know we don’t, we just have our dowsing rods and pendulums… ka-pow!”

“…but of course! We need to dowse the place and dowse ORC and compare the two energy fields, I knew you’d agree.”

“I haven’t agreed to anything but there would be no harm in doing that and whilst people might look at us a bit odd, which they do anyway, there’s little chance of us being arrested for dowsing a couple of ancient churchyards.”

“But what do you think it is?”

But a chance visit to a medieval church leads to the discovery of a strange phenomenon that leads Don and Wen down the straight paths of the leys and the more convoluted ways of symbolism, taking an unusual delight in severed heads….

… and the hawks lead the way to the Feathered Seer and the Ninth Knight….

And all the while they find a rainbow of coloured light in the sacred places that defies explanation….

A gentle reminder folks… while I am away imbibing various grape-related beverages and watching deeply symbolic folk dances with flaming brands under the Hunter’s Moon… I’ll tell you all about it when I get back….

“We are… without question…going to get locked up!”

The Initiate is free to download on Kindle until 20th October to celebrate the launch of our new books, The Osiriad and The Living One.

Why not check it out and download our little book while you are there?

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.

  1. Well, Sue, you have invited me into the world of reading Kindle books, and I just downloaded The Initiate. Thank you so much for making your book available for free this weekend. I’m looking forward to enjoying it. WG


    • Sue Vincent says:

      I hope you have as much fun with it as we did in the writing 🙂


      • Sue, I’m enjoying your book quite a lot. Saturday was my day to sit at the computer and read, and I’m almost half way through. Thank you again for the free download weekend.
        I have finished a necklace for you with Lapis and several sorts of quartz, including rutilated quartz. I’m going to re-make it before sending you a photo because it looks a little to tightly made to my eye. I’ll loosen it up a bit, snap a photo, and get it in the mail tomorrow. It is a lightworker’s tool. It would not be comfortable to wear a lot, but should prove helpful when you’re working. 😉 Hope you are settling back in and had a good weekend. A busy day here, so I’m behind in reading posts- Best wishes, WG
