Review: The Search for the Eye of Fire

This is a hard review for me to write because I am not in any way unbiased about this e-book.  I met Boyd down in Glastonbury in 2007 and we started chatting about how we fitted into the group and she explained how she had actually witnessed many of the events that were described in Graham Phillips’ book “The Eye of Fire”.  She mentioned that she had made and kept some notes and I was enthusiastic about knocking them into a publishable format.

Fast forward to today and these notes have found their way into a wonderful personal account of the Eye of Fire adventure. Be warned: this is not a rewrite of the original book. In fact it had been so long since I had read EoF that I had to go back and read it again to refresh my memory of the sequence of events.

Where the original was melodramatic and slightly frenzied, Boyd’s account is deeply personal, more measured and more reflective. Because of this both books actually stand well together as complementary rather than contradictory.  You feel reading Boyd’s account that it is less like a horror movie and more like a diary coming to life and it is all the more powerful for that.

I don’t want to say too much more. You need to read it for yourselves. Suffice to say that the writing style is very polished, quickly bringing those heady days back to life in your mind’s eye.  I very much suspect that Boyd’s account will become a fixed part of the questing canon and that future generations of questers will seek it out, not just for the unique perspective it offers on the EoF story, but because of the very practical questing techniques it contains.

Highly recommended.

Review: Spirit Chaser by Alex Langstone

There are a surprising number of strands in Alex Langstone’s new book “Spirit Chaser”, intertwined and running like luminous DNA through the pages of the book.

At the most immediate level this is a “psychic questing” story in the classic mould. We follow Alex on a series of journeys (both physical and psychic) around the British Isles and watch as the threads of synchronicity, symbolism and psychic experience weave a fascinating picture about some of the early Celtic Christian saints. Through traditional (though painstaking) research Alex is able to corroborate much of the information that is psychically transmitted.  Even what is not immediately backed up adds entirely believable detail to the skeleton story.

As well as this, however, he mixes in an imagined historical biography of Saint Bega – the focus of the book – and traces how she and her Celtic colleagues may have left a legacy for us in the present day.

Still more, he breaks off his own narrative and hands over to “guest” authors such as Yuri Leitch and Gary Biltcliffe whose own impressive research is shown to dovetail seamlessly with Alex’s. This is a great example of an inclusive, co-operative attitude that breaks down the possessiveness that often stifles genuine sharing of information and which can only strengthen the questing community.

Lastly the book is a meditation on the spiritual nature of the British Isles. As an Irishman living in England with three half-English, half-Irish children, I found this aspect of the book both surprising and touching in a way that I hadn’t expected. I was powerfully reminded that in those days the sea was easier to cross than the land and the communities dotted around the Irish Sea were far more connected than you would imagine.  The ancient perspective probably inverted todays default view and envisaged the Irish Sea as the container and focal point rather than the land around it.

In all of these areas Alex writes honestly and engagingly. In fact, at times he is probably too modest and does not accompany some of the more astonishing events with the fanfare that they deserve. He traces his own spiritual development as the quest unfolds and clearly illustrates how questing can provide a framework for this kind of inner exploration.

In summary, this is a great addition to the questing canon and Alex is to be congratulated on a truly inspired and inspiring work.

Trickster and Psychic Questing Presentation

Here is my powerpoint presentation form the recent Questing Conference weekender at Avebury. Download here.

It was a great couple of days and there were some great (unrehearsed) correlations between the presentations with Trickster making several appearances. There was so much more I wanted to say but as it was I ran over by 7 minutes.

Although it’s in the Bibliography, I must to highlight the Doctor Quantum link. These are short YouTube videos geared to show the basics of Quantum Theory to children. I’m not proud and I freely admit that I found these extremely useful to illustrate the theories in way that my resistant brain could comprehend.

Lastly, if you have downloaded the presentation and are interested in some very major future developments, please sign up to the special Mailing List here:Subscribe to Special Event Mailing List You can find a little more information about the purpose of the list here: Special Mailing List Info

I hope you enjoy it!


Special Mailing List

After what has been described as the best Psychic Questing Weekender yet, I am planning something new and very big. However, in order to make it work I need, as a first step, to get as many of your email addresses as possible.

These will not, ever, be passed on to anyone else. In fact I will even be keeping these separate from the normal newsletter mailing list.

You can unsubscribe at any time. A permanent unsubscribe link is on the website and you will get reminders of this with any emails that get sent.

I know that many attendees at the Questing Weekender swapped details. Please pass this link to everyone you think may be interested so that they can subscribe.

You will not get many emails. Don’t worry if things go quiet; the plan is to unleash something new around Christmas-time but this cannot happen unless we get everyone with an interest in Questing signed up first.

Please click here to join: Subscribe to Special Event Mailing List

I hope you will join me and help create a stronger, more connected Questing community.

Many thanks, Simon Nugent

In Memorium, Bernard.

Anyone familiar with Andrew Collins’ psychic-questing publications will have heard of Bernard, quite possibly the most talented direct-information psychic that Andrew has ever worked with.  He is most well known to us from The Black Alchemist books and The Seventh Sword, but he also produced a great deal of other information which has enormously influenced the directions of Andrew Collins work, including the finding of the cave complex at Giza.


Sadly, Bernard died in his sleep at 01:30 on Tuesday 30 March 2010 at the age of 70.  He is survived by his wife, daughter and grandchildren.  You can read Andrew Collins’ tribute to him here:

Paul Weston has also written a piece about Bernard on his Avalonian Aeon blog here, which has a fantastic painting by Bernard adorning it:

As he ascends through the Empyrean Realms, let everyone who reads this raise a glass to this extraordinary man.

Alchemy and Water

The International Alchemy Conference, claimed to be the largest gathering of alchemists for 500 years, is nearly upon us.  It runs from the 23-25 October in the LA Convention centre.  It’s a little far for this writer but if any members are attending, I’d be very interested to hear what you thought of it and would love to get a small review posted in the News (link on the left) or the Forums.


One of the keynote speakers is Dr Masaru Emoto, whose work with frozen water crystals has been featured in the movie “What the Bleep!” and who worked with Dean Radin on a triple-blind experiment that produced strong evidence for the ability of thought/intention to affect material reality ( ).


I mention this because I had previously and indepedently come across the idea of “altered/aesthetically beautiful” water as I followed another thread relating to the Icon Trail.  This was the work of Sepp Huber who has created devices which will act on the water, resulting, it is claimed, in a better quality solution akin to the intention-affected water observed by Dr Emoto.  Mr Huber is a genuine guy who is clearly passionate about his work and has the same intense energy that seems to characterise so many pioneering inventors.  His website ( ) has got to be one of the least sales-y I’ve come across and yet is definitely worth a look.  Anything that can possibly reverse some of the harmful effects of modern living has to be valuable.
