March 9, 2017 – King Arthur in America

History No Comments »

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.

500x390-flammarionLouisville 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 No Comments »

naturopathy2-188x300Join 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.

September 28, 2016 – Magicians of the Gods

Magicians of the Gods book coverJoin 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.

August 24, 2016 – Encounters of a Seeker: the Four Body System, Part II

Cosmology, Multi-Dimensions, Quantum Physics, Spirituality No Comments »

MercabaJoin us Wednesday August 24, 2016 at 6:30 PM for “Encounters of a Seeker: the Four Body System, Part II” presented by Harold Cottrell.

Several questions have arisen from Part I.

Why can’t we see the other three bodies?  Are these bodies like a body of water or like the human body?  Do the bodies get fed?  Do the bodies sleep?  If the bodies are asleep and awaken, then what is the light they awaken to—surely it is different than the sun.  If any of the bodies can see, then where is the light that illuminates that which is being observed?  Do all the bodies die like the physical body?

These questions and more will be explored as we continue to understand the ancient teachings of the Four Body System that predates the Babylonians from 4500 years ago.  Once again, we will draw upon Quantum Physics within a six-dimensional universe in our adventure into the possibilities.

Harold Cottrell has a Masters in Mathematics, a former professional Ballroom Dancer, farmer, naturalist,  Seeker of Truth and author of the book, “Just One Generation: Repairing the Past, Learning from the Future”.

Harold is from Hart County Kentucky and has lived in Lexington for 35 years.  Currently Harold lives in Louisville.

August 10, 2016 – Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt

Ancient Engineering, Megalithic Architecture No Comments »

51Pd6tXrDEL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Join us Wednesday August 10, 2016 at 6:30 PM for “Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt – Advanced Engineering in the Temples of the Pharaohs” presented by Jim Patterson.

In this 60-minute DVD Christopher Dunn presents a stunning stone-by-stone analysis of key Egyptian monuments, including the statue of Ramses II at Luxor and the fallen crowns that lay at its feet.  His modern day engineering expertise provides a unique view into the sophisticated technology used to create these famous ancient monuments.

Using modern digital photography, computer-aided design software, and metrology instruments, Dunn  exposes the extreme precision of these monuments and the type of advanced manufacturing expertise necessary to produce them.  His examination of the mysterious underground tunnels and stone boxes of the Serapeum illuminates the finest examples of precision engineering on the planet.  He also addresses the shortcomings of the orthodox explanation for the quarrying of obelisks, particularly the gargantuan ‘Unfinished Obelisk.’

Providing never-before-seen evidence, Dunn’s research shows that while absent from the archaeological record, highly refined tools, techniques, and even mega-machines must have been used in Egypt.

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