Paul is an unashamed eclectic, describing himself in his books as a Psychic Questing, Reiki, Crowley, Mother Meera, Fellowship of Isis, Adi Da, Druid, Osho, Scientology, Gurdjieff, Anthony Robbins firewalking, Kriya Yoga, UFOlogical, Avalon of the Heart, 2012 kind of guy. Having completed a degree in the Study of Comparative Religion (for which he produced a dissertation on Nazi Occultism) in 1983, Paul moved on to a period working as a hypnotherapist. Meeting Andrew Collins in 1988, he became seriously involved in psychic questing and makes appearances in 3 of Collins' books of that time, The Seventh Sword, The Circlemakers, and The Second Coming. Moving to Glastonbury in 1995 he immediately began a four-year period of a hundred public presentations on esoteric topics. From there he progressed to ten years of writing which resulted in his inter-related first three books, Mysterium Artorius, Aleister Crowley and the Aeon of Horus, and Avalonian Aeon. The sequence will be completed with the publication (hopefully by the end of 2010) of Aquarian Phoenix. As a long-term resident he is passionately interested in all aspects of the total Glastonbury package of history and mythology and the current extraordinary spontaneous social experiment that the town itself represents. Paul is currently once again engaging in an extensive sequence of lectures to promote his books.
