May 9, 2018 – Dream Analysis

Dreams Comments Off on May 9, 2018 – Dream Analysis

Mark your calendars for next week! We’ve arranged for a new LES public presentation on Wednesday, May 9 at 6:00 PM:  “Dream Analysis” presented by Jill Baker.


Today research and actual experimentation on recording dreams is a topic for many studies. Dreams have been the subject of analyses and research since time began.

Dreams have always been considered messages from other dimensions and certainly arise from the subconscious. Jill’s presentation will include some background on how dreams have been viewed, categorized and analyzed in the past, but will also include a more interesting discussion of dream symbols and dream events and what they may mean to the dreamer.  Do dreams give hints about future events – sometimes referred to as visions or – are they the  wishes and fears of the dreamer playing out in the subconscious? Or, are they simply the left-over energy of an active brain?

Jill is an award winning artist, teacher and author.

Please mark your calendars and plan on attending this meeting which is sure to intrigue.

February 22, 2018 – Finding Atlantis

Ancient History Comments Off on February 22, 2018 – Finding Atlantis

Mark your calendars for later this month. We’ve arranged for a new LES public presentation on Thursday, February 22 at 6:30 PM:  “Finding Atlantis” presented by Lee Pennington.



For the past several decades, Lee Pennington has been researching the lost continent of Atlantis.

In the last half dozen years, he has focused his attention on looking in a different place from the Atlantic Ocean, where most think, if the legend has any validity at all, the island should be found.

In Plato’s time, however, there was no such thing as the Atlantic Ocean, so it stands to reason Plato, who in his “Dialogues” discussed Atlantis, could have been talking of someplace else when he referred to continent being located beyond the Pillars of Hercules.

Pennington thinks he knows where Atlantis is located, as well as the lost land of Lemuria. He also thinks that a large monument rises into Indonesian sky that is somehow connected to both those lost places.

His presentation perhaps will not only convince you where Atlantis is but will also point out we have history all wrong—especially that part that says there were no civilizations beyond those we already know about and certainly none that reaches back beyond the ice age.

Gunung Padang, a great man-made pyramid in excess of 20,000 years old, alone should convince us history is wrong.


Commonwealth Bank & Trust, 286 N Hubbards Ln, Louisville, KY 40207.
Enter through the front door. The meeting will be held in the lower level meeting room of the bank building. Stairs and an elevator are just inside the front entrance.


March 9, 2017 – King Arthur in America

History Comments Off on March 9, 2017 – King Arthur in America

Lee Pennington at the Los Lunas stone in NM; it’s an abbreviated version of the Ten Commandments written in ancient Khumry.

We’ve arranged for a new LES public presentation on Thursday, March 9 at 6:30 PM:  “King Arthur in America” presented by Lee Pennington.

Think you know all there is to know about King Arthur?

Well did you know that there were really two King Arthurs who lived 250 years apart and that scholars have mistakenly combined them into one individual?

Did you know that King Arthur II (of the Round Table fame) came to America in 573 with his brother, Prince Madoc, and that King Arthur was killed here (in Kentucky actually)?

Did you know that King Arthur’s body was mummified and was taken back Wales and the exact place of his burial is known?

This is not fiction! The evidence is compelling.

Don’t miss Lee Pennington, researcher, film maker, and poet, presenting “King Arthur in America.”


  • In 562 AD Britain was the site of a catastrophic event—most likely a comet striking the Island country. The land was devastated. The king at the time was none other than the legendary King Arthur.  King Arthur’s brother, Prince Madoc, was at the time the fleet admiral of a substantial Welsh navy. Madoc was at sea when the comet struck and was blown totally off course and was gone for 10 years.
  • England was mainly uninhabitable and Arthur took his people and army into Lydaw which is now Normandy. Records say that in 572 Arthur returned to Wales, and he and Madoc gathered 700 ships at Milford Haven and sailed west to Anwan, “that which is beyond.”
  • Having missed Ireland, there is only one place, sailing west, they could have gone—North America!  Other records tell of King Arthur being killed in Anwan and being brought back to Wales in a celebrated voyage described in a number of extant manuscripts
  • Lee Pennington will present compelling evidence that the Welsh records are totally correct in stating that Wales’ most famous king did indeed come to America and was killed here.

Changes to Louisville Esoteric Society

Uncategorized Comments Off on Changes to Louisville Esoteric Society

Louisville Esoteric Society has lost our lease in Bakery Square due to a business expansion next door overtaking our space.  After a fruitful six years of thought-provoking presentations we’ve decided it’s time for LES to evolve. For the time being we will discontinue our regular twice-a-month public meetings, but may re-start public meetings at some point in the future. If we do, we’ll post a notice here, so you will be aware of our plans.  

It’s been a wonderful six-year run.  Thanks to all those who chose to financially and spiritually support our intent to have a private and inspirational location for our gatherings.  Thanks to all those who have taken the initiative to present great topics to our group over the years.  The relationships we’ve formed are invaluable.  It’s you who’ve made the difference!

October 26, 2016 – Naturopathy

Healing, Health Comments Off on October 26, 2016 – Naturopathy

Join us Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 6:30 PM for Naturopathy presented by Dr. Robert G. Churchman, N.D.

According to Wikipedia:

Naturopathic practice is based on a belief in the body’s ability to heal itself through a special vital energy or force guiding bodily processes internally. Diagnosis and treatment concern primarily alternative therapies and “natural” methods to promote the body’s natural ability to heal. Naturopaths focus on a holistic approach, often completely avoiding the use of surgery and drugs. Naturopaths aim to prevent illness through stress reduction and changes to diet and lifestyle, often rejecting the methods of evidence-based medicine.


Dr. Churchman will hopefully discuss some of the scientific and clinical evidence documenting the efficacy of natural approaches to healing as well as some of the specific modalities he incorporates into his practice.

All sincere seekers are welcome.  $10 for pay-as-you-go attendees; No charge for LES pre-pay Members.

September 28, 2016 – Magicians of the Gods

Ancient Engineering, Ancient History, Megalithic Architecture Comments Off on September 28, 2016 – Magicians of the Gods

Join us Wednesday September 28, 2016 at 6:30 PM for “Magicians of the Gods” presented by Jim Patterson.

Graham Hancock’s 1996 multi-million bestseller Fingerprints of the Gods remains an astonishing, deeply controversial, wide-ranging investigation of the mysteries of our past and the evidence for Earth’s lost civilization. Twenty years later, Hancock returns with the sequel to his seminal work, Magicians of the Gods, filled with completely new, scientific and archaeological evidence, which has only recently come to light.

The evidence revealed in his latest book continues to support the theory of an advanced civilization that flourished during the Ice Age and was destroyed in the global cataclysms between 12,800 and 11,600 years ago. But there were survivors – known to later cultures by names such as ‘the Sages’, ‘the Magicians’, ‘the Shining Ones’, and ‘the Mystery Teachers of Heaven’. They travelled the world in their great ships doing all in their power to keep the spark of civilization burning. They settled at key locations – Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, Baalbek in the Lebanon, Giza in Egypt, ancient Sumer, Mexico, Peru and across the Pacific where a huge pyramid has recently been discovered in Indonesia. Everywhere they went these ‘Magicians of the Gods’ brought with them the memory of a time when mankind had fallen out of harmony with the universe and paid a heavy price.

Jim will present an overview of the book and the evidence presented within – including what Hancock feels caused the global cataclysms that destroyed those lost antediluvian civilizations. As always, we’ll have plenty of time for Q&A discussion.

All sincere seekers are welcome.  $10 for attendees who are not pre-paid members;  No charge for LES pre-paid Members.
