World renowned visionary writer Graham Hancock will be visiting Ibiza in late October, appearing at the Amorevore Food and Arts Festival over the weekend of 26th to 28th October and then running an exclusive, intimate retreat, hosted by the Tyringham Initiative, on October 30th and 31st.
Most famous for his controversial bestseller, Fingerprints of the Gods – first published in 1995, translated into 27 languages and sold over 3 million copies – Graham was scathingly attacked at the time by conventional archaeologists for his revisionist approach, contending that highly advanced civilisations were wiped out by a catastrophic climate change event, approximately 12,000 years ago.
However, as the years passed and technologies advanced, much of what he first speculated about has now been verified by the geological record and more recent archaeological findings from the US to Turkey and Indonesia. His 2015 book, Magicians of the Gods, provided ’the smoking gun’ for many of his theories, now accepted by an increasingly wide audience.
Along with maverick biologist Rupert Sheldrake, one of Graham’s TED Talks was famously withdrawn under criticism of pseudo-science by corporate sponsors, highlighting the deep divide in world-views held within the scientific community and the many materialist assumptions now being challenged on numerous fronts.
Graham has also become a leading spokesperson about the ‘War on Drugs’, or what he has famously dubbed the ‘War on Consciousness’, highlighting the pivotal role that various sacred, psychoactive plants have played in the evolution of cultures around the globe and even the human understanding of consciousness itself.
In his Amorevore event, Foods of the Gods, Graham will elaborate on this fascinating topic, in dialogue with fellow writer and ‘cultural change agent’ Greg Sams, while the Magical Mystery Tour Retreat will present his latest archaeological findings, soon to be published in his forthcoming book, America Before.
