About the Book

In the cycles of the sun and stars, in the movements of the earth and the cosmos, the message of a journey to enlightenment is written.
Many thousands of years ago, ancient seers understood this – revering the sun as the highest symbol of divine consciousness, and its light the spiritual source of creation. Its major stages at the solstices and equinoxes became the dominant alignment of sacred sites all over the world, as well as central events in the lives of many spiritual figures. Today, these ancient remains can still be decoded to reveal their message of spiritual enlightenment.
The roots of this knowledge trace to a distant time before a global cataclysm destroyed a prior civilization. After this disaster, mysterious wisdom-bringers are recorded as traveling the world on a divine mission to establish this cosmic knowledge anew and initiate the spiritual beginnings of our current human age. They oversaw the building of some of the most enigmatic sacred sites on the planet, and gave rise to a civilization of the religion of the sun that extended across much of the earth.
However, over time, strife and persecution took its toll, and after a while it was lost–left in scattered fragments that echo a bygone era of great spiritual knowledge. The Path of the Spiritual Sun aims to restore this lost knowledge – exploring the sites, symbols, and sacred texts connected to the ancient spirituality of the sun – and provide celebrations and ceremonies to re-enliven its transformative practice once more.
This book includes:
  • Hundreds of images and illustrations
  • Hundreds of excerpts from the world’s sacred texts
  • Detailed descriptions of over 40 ancient sacred sites
  • Step-by-step guides to celebrating the solstice and equinox
  • The meanings and cosmological origins of many ancient symbols

Review on Aksworld

Most people are familiar with Stonehenge and other similar sites around the world, built by the ancients to celebrate their mysterious rites of the summer solstice, and the solstices and equinoxes in general. However, the real meaning, i.e. the esoteric significance of these events, is largely unknown to the modern world.

This book, by authors Mark and Lara Atwood, is probably the most complete and readable on the subject for seekers of esoteric wisdom…

This theme is explored in rich depth through a detailed examination of esoteric wisdom and also archaeological/historical research. The book’s 476 pages contain a wealth of quotations from ancient sources to back up the profound points being made…

What is particularly striking about The Path Of The Spiritual Sun is how well written, clear, and reader-friendly the book is throughout. Far from trying to impress by being obscure and academic to all but the initiated, as so many esoteric books tend to be, the authors strive throughout for clarity and communication, both through the written text and the illustrations. This makes the book a joy to read, and the reader is well rewarded for the time spent doing so.

From the Book

The Path of the Spiritual Sun uncovers a highly significant knowledge, which has the potential to both decode and explain much of the ancient spiritual wisdom of the past.
It is not an encyclopaedic style compendium of research on the celebration of the sun—that would be a much bigger book, would serve little real purpose in terms of practical understanding, and would also be very boring! Instead it aims to synthesize the deeper meaning behind the celebration of the spiritual sun as something that can be practiced today just as the ancients did thousands of years ago. It uncovers the lost threads that connect the very process of spiritual transformation, with the movement of the heavens and the earth, as well as the remaining fragments of ancient spiritual knowledge we have access to today.
It describes why so many ancient sacred sites align to the sun’s major annual stages (the solstices and equinoxes), why so many ancient spiritual teachings share similarities with one another and the sun even though separated by great distances, and reveals the common roots behind many of the religions and traditions still practiced today. I will go so far as to say that the knowledge of the spiritual sun acts as a virtual Rosetta Stone of ancient spirituality.
~ Lara Atwood, from the preface of The Path of the Spiritual Sun

Why We Don’t Receive Royalties

We believe spirituality is not something you can price tag, and that it should be passed onto others just as freely as it’s received. We work in the ancient and time-honored way of running on what people give voluntarily in donations alone. In line with this principle, we used to give all our books away as free eBooks – The Path of the Spiritual Sun was downloaded over 30,000 times. However, they were so extensively plagiarized that we’ve had to provide them as paperback books instead. We continue not to receive any payments from their sale, which helps keep their price as close to cost as possible.
