The Book of Pheryllt

SKU: 9788793886353

  • At the age of 12, Joshua Free was officially initiated into the Pheryllt Druid tradition (based on the work of Douglas Monroe) and then began leading his own Gnostic Druid organization at 13. A year later he was initiated and quickly installed into the ‘third degree’ of Celtic Wicca. In the mid-1990′s, he was heralded the youngest initiate to join the “Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids” (OBOD), a large international organization based in England that New Age (Druidic) authors frequently cite.

    While in high school during the late-1990′s, Joshua Free maintained leadership under the name Merlyn Stone of a small esoteric mystic-magical experimental research group, the “Elven Fellowship Circle of Magick” (EFCOM), which met both in private and publicly in Washington Park (Denver, Colorado) from 1998 through 2000. Considered a prodigious youth within the growing Rocky Mountain New Age Scene, he wrote many underground manifestos on various New Age topics using the pseudonym Merlyn Stone while still a teenager — one of the first and most famous being the “Sorcerer’s Handbook” that has reached thousands of readers and is currently celebrating its 15th Anniversary in 2013! (The complete works of Merlyn Stone are now available in the NEW commemorative edition -- "Wizardry".)

    Merlyn Stone (Joshua Free) quickly became a controversial underground occult figure that advocated radically diverse approaches to Druidic Philosophy & Metaphysics — including active participation with the New Forest Pheryllt group of his primary Druidic mentor, Douglas Monroe, for which he was unseated from all positions (particularly OBOD) and disappeared from public view while still a teenager.

    Although now best known for his work on Sumerians, the Anunnaki and Babylonian Tradition for the Mardukites, his work on the Secret Dragon (Elven) Legacy and modern Pheryllt Druid Tradition is also paramount. In addition to his own collected works anthology, “The Druid Compleat“, his writing has even been used for the third volume completing the classic bestselling ‘Merlyn’ trilogy by Douglas Monroe, “The Deepteachings of Merlyn“ in 2011.

    Before returning to mainstream view in 2008 (nearly a decade later) via the internet, Joshua Free had already spent fifteen years intensely exploring esoteric sects of society, underground counter-culture and contemporary academia. Following an individualized path, preferring personal apprenticeships over direct membership in certain groups and organizations, his all-encompassing Universalist pursuit is to unify the knowledge and potential of the human condition, experiencing life in the metaphysical universe.

    [The literary cornerstone of this effort, consolidated and released in 2008 as "Arcanum", not only earned him an honorary position in the "Ordo Lapsit Exillis" from Tracy R. Twyman and then as a companionate to the "Dragon Court" of (the now 'late') Nicholas de Vere, but also contributed to the rise of his own revolutionary 'Next Generation' (NexGen) underground movement...]

    On the Summer Solstice of 2008, Joshua Free founded the inception of the modern Mardukite movement — currently in its fifth active year of operation, with extensive literary materials now in print. In Spring of 2011, he co-founded the Systemology division (Systemological Society) of the Mardukite Research Organization drawn from truths of the most ancient spiritual technologies on the planet.
