Secret Traditions of Elves, Faeries, Druids and Dragons; Druidic Trilogy by Joshua Free Reveals All

The Druid's Handbook, Elvenomicon and Draconomicon by Joshua Free

A critical year in the literary legacy accounting for the Secret Traditions of Elves, Faeries, Druids and Dragons preserved in the classic underground Druidic trilogy by Joshua Free, first begun in the mid-1990’s while still writing and contributing toward the underground New Age developments as “Merlyn Stone.”

Joshua Free on Mardukite Necronomicon, Sumerian Magick & Remembering Tracy Twyman These writings have directly influenced thousands of people over the past decades, indirectly even millions, and most overtly leading to the inception and development of the Mardukite Research Organization and the evolving NexGen Systemological Society of Esoteric Philosophers.

Joshua Free’s paramount Druidic trilogy demonstrates the definitive DRUID CONNECTION to the totality of western civilization–including its magical traditions, philosophies and systematization of society and intellect. The legacy runs deep, crossing diverse and controversial pathways that have led the author into dangerous territory for many years.

Elvenomicon by Joshua Free, Discover Hidden Worlds of Elves and Faeries

In 2008, coinciding with the inception launch of the modern Mardukite movement, material by Joshua Free specifically from DRACONOMICON and what is now called ELVENOMICON (formerly ‘Book of Elven-Faerie’) caught the attention of two underground individuals– Nicholas de Vere and Tracy R Twyman –both influencing the earliest revival interest in matters of intensive controversy and conspiracy that have now become everyday household concepts, including “the Dragon Legacy” or “Merovingian Mythos” and other aspects later popularized in mainstream media such as the “Da Vinci Code.”


JOSHUA FREE’S WORK IS COMMONLY EXPLOITED BY POPULAR TV AND RADIO SHOWS WITHOUT HIS RECEIVING RECOGNITION AND WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY SUPPRESSING EXPOSURE TO HIS DEEPER WORK as briefly brought to light when recently interviewed on Michael Decon’s live End of Days program.

Joshua Free / Nabu / Merlyn Stone What is it they don’t want you to know from his books ???

JOSHUA FREE’S PREVIOUS INVOLVEMENT IN THE NEO-DRUID COMMUNITY SINCE 1995 HAS ALSO BEEN A SOURCE OF CONTENTION AMONG SUPPOSED NEW AGE AUTHORITIES and yet all of his most controversial historical theories were scientifically confirmed this year as new DNA evidence reported from Europe in April 2019.


Elvenomicon -or- Secret Traditions of Elves and Faeries by Joshua FreeELVENOMICON, even as a stand-alone title, represents a powerful tool advancing spiritual technologies on the planet as a literary knowledge-key, once only available to the initiated, used to unlock forbidden truths of esoteric archaeology including:

–How traditions of the Ancient Near East evolved into mythical, mystical and societal systems in Europe.

–How the forgotten arcane legacies of Elven-Faerie and even “Dragon” races on Earth have shaped the Western world and “Western magical tradition.”

–How modern folk-magic and “New Age” revivals may be traced back to coincide with evolutions in Human civilization marked by specific ancient migrations.


Draconomicon: Book of Ancient Dragon Magick by Joshua Free DRACONOMICON reflects some of the oldest writings by Joshua Free still in print from the “Merlyn Stone” days, newly revised and rewritten for its 25th Anniversary hardcover collector’s edition.

The Dragon Legacy is an important and integral part of the history and traditions of all cultures, and subsequently underlies all cultural magical traditions–not to mention symbols and motifs that lie beneath the development of human civilization as a whole. Nothing is separate. And this is one of the lessons we learn from The Dragon–that everything is connected together and we cannot see things in exclusion to other things if we are to see things, with Self-honesty, for how they truly are–another gift of The Dragon.

“Hidden in the depths of the Dragon’s Lair is an untold legacy of knowledge and power, secret societies and bloodlines, cults and symbols encompassing our entire material existence–and the means by which it can be controlled. It is quite possible this is among the best kept secrets in the history of occultism, even enshrouded in a cacophony of grand conspiracies. And in its most ancient forms, it is the undefiled, raw and primordial Truth of things–just as we would expect the Druids, wizards and sages of old to understand them. And with understanding comes wisdom.”
–Rowen Gardner in the Foreword to Draconomicon

Druids Handbook: Ancient Magicks for a New Age by Joshua Free Drawing upon over two decades experience in the neodruidic community, Joshua Free’s original underground masterpiece returns to life, newly revised and expanded for this amazing 20th Anniversary presentation. THE DRUID’S HANDBOOK by Joshua Free is a superior addition to any modern Druid Library.

Providing a new vision with unparalleled clarity for modern Druidry, world renown occultist and mystic, Joshua Free explores the magic and deep teachings of Druidic Lore, including core doctrines and codes, triad teachings of the Bards, natural philosophy, the construction of ritual tools and performance of ceremonial magic involving the elements, trees and forces of Nature–all of which is presented in honor of the true spirit of authentic Druidism.

BOOK OF PHERYLLT – Complete Druid Source Book developed by “Merlyn” Author’s Apprentice

THE BOOK OF PHERYLLT edited by Joshua Free is a realization of legendary proportions, delivering the virtually impossible—a complete collection of esoteric Pheryllt Druid fragments scattered across history into a single coherent source, collected from the popular underground trilogy from Joshua Free, and now accessible to all modern Druidic practitioners for the first time ever! Published in collaboration with Kima Global Books, the literary home of Douglas Monroe’s conclusion to the ‘Merlyn Trilogy’—The Deepteachings of Merlyn, (which also included a brief ‘Interlogue’ written by Joshua Free).

THE BOOK OF PHERYLLT
A Complete Druid Source Book

edited by Joshua Free

Come drink deeply from the wisdom of authentic Celtic Druidism brewed at the Cauldron of Awen, wherein lies unknown depths and heights of true mystic initiation. Travel far along hidden wooden paths of the Enchanted Forest—using The Book of Pheryllt as your guide—and discover the ancient storehouse of Nature’s Mysteries from the original Druidic database of universal knowledge.


Although best known for his work connected to the modern MARDUKITE “New Thought” movement, Joshua Free has been involved with “practical Earth magic” since he was 12, starting with his first initiation into Pheryllt Druidism in the mid-1990’s as “Merlyn Stone.” At that time, he was once the youngest initiate ever of the Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids (OBOD) in England, before leaving to exclusively pursue a Druidic apprenticeship with Douglas Monroe, and is now “Bard of the Twelfth Chair” at New Forest Centre for Magickal Studies.


Douglas Monroe fondly memorializes the efforts made by his old apprentice in the Preface for the Joshua Free’s presentation of THE BOOK OF PHERYLLT from Kima Global Books

“Our paths first crossed back around 1995. I was teaching university abroad, and there received an email from one Merlyn Stone, a teenage aspiring writer with a headful of penetrating ideas which he confessed the 21 Lessons of Merlyn had someway triggered. I recall being astounded at the depth of the letter, and was soon to learn that ‘Merlyn Stone’ was actually the pen name of Joshua Free… Through the intervening years I have watched as Joshua Free has matured into a fine writer—and an even better scholar, whose prodigious output of books cover a wide range of esoteric topics and philosophies, well worth exploring… Joshua’s genius lies in his ability to compile, categorize and connect vast stockpiles of lore, ancient to modern, and which has, over the last decade, culminated in a truly impressive contribution to world metaphysics… In time, I believe his work will receive more of the serious recognition it deserves…”

PHERYLLT 3 – Completion of Pheryllt “Books of Fferyllt” Trilogy Series by Joshua Free

In ancient Keltia, the Druid Order consisted of learned ones, those educated in Bardic Arts: cosmology and spirituality, natural-native history and geology, legendary history of heroes and mythology, healing and botanical medicine, astrononmy and astronology, and of course ‘magic’ – all of which are hidden in lines of Bardic verse and the researches of those who study them. As primary preservers of Celtic and Druid Mysteries, it is no wonder that Bardic Druids were considered the transmitter or catalyst of -awen- the essence, Divine Spark or spirit of inspiration that the Greeks termed ‘gnosis’. It is to the ‘ebb and flow’ of the -awen field- that the magical and poetic genius of the Bard is attributed.

Preservation of ancient knowledge is key among all elite orders of the ages. This Ancient Mystery School is timeless and spans all places on Earth. Past mystical cultures often relied on elite orders of scribe-priests and poet-magicians to bridge ancestral roots and traditions with the future – orders rooted in ‘languages’, ‘communication’, and above all the written word. The poetic genius of “awen” – the Divine Spark of Creation – manifests throughout all creative arts and as the spirt of “prophecy,” an ability to observe experiences with a heightened awareness and communicate it in the World of Form. Druidism is, therefore, an echo of this “poetic genius,” an amalgamation of collected knowledge preserved by the ancient elite, including a mystical and scientific understanding of the world that eluded the perceptual range of ‘common’ folk.

PHERYLLT: Volume 2
PHERYLLT: Volume 3

A unique metaphysical apprenticeship combining diverse facets of knowledge – from practical magic, to Welsh Bardic tradition, to Celtic history, or even foreign philosophies assimilated by the Druids – all appear in Douglas Monroe’s Merlyn Trilogy under a premise of being derived from the Book of Pheryllt (or Books of Fferyllt); a collective ‘body’ of Druidic wisdom also called the Body of the Dragon. As such, a wide array of sources and subjects were required to develop an allegorical facsimile (but legitimately authentic) manifestation of the Book of Pheryllt consistent with the mysterious manner in which Bards and Druids conceal and reveal the secret tradition. Considering the sheer variety of citations and scattered references in Monroe’s work, meeting justifiably high requirements and expectations for the ‘Body of the Dragon’ would require more than one volume to be complete and follow protocols – actually three volumes: a TRIAD interwoven as ONE.

Many antiquated scholarly references to the “Books of Fferyllt” or the “Pheryllt” themselves may be found (included or paraphrased in the current Book of Pheryllt trilogy series facsmile). Whatever bits trickle down from classical literature and antiquarian druidism to satisfy a modern thirst for the ‘pheryllt paradigm’ have been collected together in one place – a sacred book once thirded and now made whole – forming a complete sourcebook of undefiled lore. Whatever name, guise, or title we might attribute to the ‘Body of the Dragon’ – and we have chosen PHERYLLT – this same lore (originally accessible to few) serves as basis for the majority of Celtic and neo-Druidic revival of the past few centuries; whether or not it has been given due credit as such.

PHERYLLT: Volume 1
PHERYLLT: Volume 2
PHERYLLT: Volume 3

Several different cycles of important Celtic and Welsh literature and lore – Hanes Taliesin, Cad Goddeu, the Gwarchans, Cymric Triads, the books of Aneurin, Taliesin, Myrddin… – are all found in the Iolo Manuscripts including the Myvyrian Archaeology anthology and Barddas. In fact, we can essentially trace the abundant wealth of surviving Welsh MS. – including the Mabinogion – back to “Iolo Morganwg” (Edward Williams) and manuscripts ascribed to “Llywelyn Sion.” Where a thick scholarly aura accumulated from years of controversy may surround the ‘authenticity’ of some of these manuscripts, valid substitution shortages have bound the modern revival specifically to these available texts and the tradition gleaned from them.

The Book of Pheryllt trilogy of volumes edited by Joshua Free (also collected together in one volume in the forthcoming “Pheryllt -or- Body of the Dragon” anthology to be released later this year) is the realization of a legendary tome collecting wisdom passed down from an equally legendary ‘priesthood’ known in the histories of the Druids as the PHERYLLT (pronounced FAIR-ee-llt or VAIR-ult) – those who resided in the ancient Snowdonian mountains of northern Wales. There, they inhabited an ‘ambrosial city’ named for its mysterious founder, PHARAON (FAR-ah-on), meaning ‘higher powers’ and possibly alluding to the ‘celestial’ authority of a “Pharaoh.” Perhaps it is the practice of “Druid Craft” to call down ‘higher powers’ to conjure inspiration and magic in the world – perhaps that is what Ceridwen is doing where Taliesin the Bard writes: – “She took to the crafts of the Books of Fferyllt to boil a cauldron of awen.” According to our modern ‘Neo-Pheryllt’ tradition, a manuscript known as the Book of Pheryllt exists from the 16th Century collection attributed to Llywelyn Sion of Glamorgan Wales. Along with its companion volume, Barddas, also purportedly by Llywelyn Sion, the manuscripts moved from the library of Owen Morgan (“Morian”) to the private collection of the Albion Lodge of the United Ancient Order of Druids in Oxford (an ancient stronghold of the Pheryllt Order noted by Ralph Waldo Emerson).

The Magical World of Joshua Free – A Road Paved with Druids, Elves and Wizards

(Joshua Free as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s)

With more than two active decades in the underground “New Age” and occult scene (known as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s), over 20 unique arcane texts in print (not including collected anthologies), and now a decade spent as presiding director of the modern Mardukite movement – you may have already experienced some piece of the magical world of Joshua Free personally or more likely one of the many very publicly visible facets of culture and industry that he has influenced from behind the scenes.

Having so adeptly remained in the underground for so many years, it is quite possible that you have never actually read one of these critically acclaimed esoteric and arcane underground bestselling classics by Joshua Free and there is no better time than now to reap the benefits of the experience. Many of the original beloved titles (from 1996–2008) now appear in a special economical anniversary collection available to the new generation of seekers and returning patrons alike.

Joshua Free (also known as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s) released many amazing resources for the modern occultist many years before his launch of the Mardukite organization (primarily emphasizing Mesopotamian studies). Starting with the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK and DRACONOMICON from the 1990’s and continuing with the BOOK OF DRUIDRY and BOOK OF ELVEN-FAERIE in (the earliest part of) the new millennium – thousands of copies of books by Joshua Free were in circulation before writing his magickal magnum opus to date, the infamous ARCANUM materials, first completed at age twenty-four!

When the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK premiered in 1998, the first edition was printed from an old-fashioned typewriter. It was originally reproduced and bound by a (local) Denver Colorado copy-center until they decided to actually read it one day… then they refused serviced because they were afraid of the spiritual implications of having anything to do with it. Thus began a tradition of Joshua Free self-producing his own books long into his days of more commercial distribution. After circulating in the underground for a few months, a second edition was printed exclusively for members of the “Elven Fellowship Circle of Magick” and the “Order of the Crystal Dawn,” two interconnected underground occult organizations in Colorado using the text as a Book of Shadows in the late 1990’s.

Although best known now for his work pertaining specifically to Sumerian and Babylonian paradigms (especially Anunnaki subjects), over twenty years ago, Joshua Free became active in another prominent underground movement – Pheryllt Druidism – a tradition he was initiated into at the age of twelve and remains active in today as a protege of Douglas Monroe. DRACONOMICON began as a notebook kept from the earliest periods of initiation when personal research led into all matters of “Dragons.” It has been revised, changed and enhanced four times prior to reaching its current state – marking nearly twenty years of neodruidic influence before inspiring the release of a separate “Pheryllt” series/trilogy of materials by Joshua Free (of which PHERYLLT I and PHERYLLT II have been released).

Materials from Joshua Free’s original initiation notebooks (not necessarily specific to dragons) was released to the underground as THE BOOK OF DRUIDRY in 2001, forming a second part of the “Druid Compleat” series/trilogy of materials (also available as an anthology of the same title). The other title in this series, THE BOOK OF ELVEN-FAERE, is not only a masterpiece of Druidry and Celtic Magical Tradition in its own right – It also served as a basis of inspiration (along with materials from all the above mentioned titles) to begin the ARCANUM project and ultimately the inception of the Mardukite movement, publicly solidified in 2008 and rooted in these works before the establishment of the widely circulated ‘Mardukite Core‘ (presented as the Necronomicon series/cycle edited by Joshua Free).

MODERN DRUIDS!! Self-Initiation Into Druidic Tradition: A Complete Course Curriculum in Druidry!

Hidden within the folds of time, space and the magic that holds it all together, there hides a little known, though popularly growing interest, misunderstood – yet powerful – facet of history, the evolution of human traditions and culture and the reality we are bound to everyday: the DRUIDS

Beyond the simple — though not necessarily inaccurate — stereotypes of white-robed priestly men gathering in stone circles near oak groves, the tradition of the Druids is laden with a much deeper philosophy of living and spiritual mysticism. It is still available to us in such intensity and power and bright colors that we see no equal in cultural histories of the world evolving since ancient Mesopotamia.

THE DRUID COMPLEAT is the most comprehensive course curriculum in the magick, metaphysics and secret wisdom of Druidry, designed for both novice and adept alike by prolific writer and occultist, Joshua Free, who has developed a huge definitive revolutionary literary anthology contribution for the New Age, comparable to his revolutionary “Arcanum” volume and even the “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible.” Now, come initiate yourself and gain clear understanding of the ‘secret knowledge’ of the Druids unlike anything ever before compiled in print!

Many issues or challenges face a seeker who is called to pursue a modern study of Druidry. For one, there are very few real resources and published printings that provide truly sufficient foundations or practical applications. There is a significant growth of neodruidic literature appearing on the bookstands, but a significant amount of it is insubstantial after closer inspection and further fragmenting the wholeness of pure Druidry. This provides yet another challenge for the modern Druid in relaying its relevance or ‘reality’ to today’s population.

THE DRUID COMPLEAT is perfect for solitary seekers and working groups. Self-paced instruction provided by a leading member of the underground occult “New Age” community, available without membership and in the privacy of your own home, office or secret chamber. For the first time since its prestigious underground release in 1996, Joshua Free’s Druid Compleat is finally available in this all-in-one NEW economical volume, revised, expanded and reformatted to include the complete text from the author’s personal Druidic trilogy, available separately as “Druidry“, “Draconomicon” and “Book of Elven-Faerie.

As is greatly needed for our world and our times – and of which has been known to a select few in the world at all times – the beauty of the pure stream of Druidic philosophy and spirituality can be revealed in the most simple language; as it had always been intended to be – and as it was relayed in the forests and woodlands of the ancient world.

The quest for Druidic Wisdom is not restricted to a specific locale – some small island in Western Europe – or even a special lineage or bloodline; though many modern or neodruids believe that they have connections to the path from past lifetimes. Druidism differs in that the accessibility to universal knowledge is found everywhere in Nature and does not require a visit certain buildings to pay homage to gods or to seek authorities to administer truth – for there is no religion higher than Truth and there is no Man greater than Truth – there are no intermediaries, no external channels, nothing to prevent the seeker from embracing the wholeness of Nature and the Secrets of the Universe on their own terms…

…THIS is what the Druid path offers one who would come to know it in self-honesty.

Mardukite Research Organization & Publishing Group : 2016 Year-in-Review | New Babylon Rising eZine

NBRheaderSMALLnotuse

MARDUKITE YEAR-8 (2016) proved monumental in furthering the work of the Mardukite Research Organization and distribution of Mardukite Truth Seeker Press titles all over the world!

cybervampscollectionsmall Following the revolutionary CyberVamps debut volume in 2015, THE VAMPYRE’S BIBLE, the Beltane 2016 release of CYBERNOMICON completely reevaluated the complimentary synchronicity of the complete works of modern mystic and hybrid messenger Joshua Free — whether dubbed “Mardukite” or “CyberVamp” or “Systemology,” (etc.) the bigger picture for our times has become clearer than ever before!

pherlytcoll23 Continuing the widely anticipated and highly controversial Books of Fferyllt series first introduced with volume one of the BOOK OF PHERYLLT in 2014 with an emphasis on the “Dragon” in history, magic and human consciousness, Pheryllt neodruid initiate Joshua Free provided the second installment BOOK OF PHERYLLT in time for Samhain 2016. It emphasizes the secrets of “Tree Ogham” and herbalism in druid tradition. (Both the CYBERNOMICON and PHERYLLT VOL 2 were first published as limited edition hardcovers for Mardukite Chamberlains prior to paperback release.)

2016reissuecollectionsmall As it turned out, 2016 was a banner year for “Anniversary Editions” commissioned by the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press commemorating long-standing underground occult classics developed by Joshua Free, dating back to his years writing under the name “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990s.

DRACONOMICON, first published underground in 1996 for the Mystics of the Earth (Draconic Celtic Lodge of Druids) celebrates its 20TH ANNIVERSARY this year! This original classic by neodruid Joshua Free predated the authors more recent official work with New Forest Centre of Douglas Monroe and the Books of Pheryllt literary series.

JOSHUA FREE’s unpublished manuscript titled “Applied Druidology” in 2001 served as reference material for later works including “Book of Elven-Faerie” and “Arcanum.” It appeared underground under the title “Druidry” in 2012 and has now been re-released to the general public for its 15TH ANNIVERSARY edition as the THE BOOK OF DRUIDRY, complimenting a growing line of pocket eco-editions from the Mardukite Publishing Group.

BoZthumbcvr In addition to the CyberVamps and Pheryllt Druid paradigms, the Mardukite-specific work from Mesopotamia also saw restoration this year, including a new 5TH ANNIVERSARY pocket eco-edition of the ceremonial guide to the Babylonian Akitu New Year Festival in the BOOK OF ZAGMUK BY NABU. Furthermore, a new edition of the “Book of Sajaha the Seer” reappeared as the LOST BOOK OF SHAYAHA.


Plans are still being developed for the National Mardukite NexGenCon scheduled for the August 2017 eclipse at Carhenge, Nebraska following a Wizards of the Wasteland spiritual retreat in the South Dakota Badlands.
