Meet The Host

Dr Geoff Thompson


Geoff has had a life-long fascination with esoteric literature down the ages. His conclusion is that whether it’s occult, philosophical, religious, or simply the rantings of the insane, it all comes down, ultimately, to how humans treat one another, The aim of this website, he says, is to sift through all the white-noise and rhetoric to unearth the gems that can help signpost and light a gentler path through our hectic modern lives. Geoff has held a number of jobs in different industries, has travelled extensively, and holds a PhD in Latin.

This is NOT a site for academics. Impenetrable ‘Acadamese’ is avoided at all costs. You will not be reaching for the dictionary every third word, nor will you be bogged down in ridiculous footnotes. This website brings you lessons from the past in plain, comprehensible language – exactly the way the original authors intended it to be.
