About the Author

Stuart Wilson was born in Exmouth in the West of England. He came from a conventional background and went to a Scottish public school (Fettes in Edin-burgh). However his mother was fascinated by theosophy and the writings of Alice Bailey, and this led to Stuart's lifelong interest in esoteric teachings and the Eastern and Western wisdom traditions. After service in the RAF on Christmas Island in the Pacific, he entered advertising as an agency copywriter, rising over some years to become an advertising manager for an industrial company. He then retrained as a counselor and set up a small publishing business, which he later sold to concentrate on writing. He wrote two best-selling name dictionaries, including Simply the Best Baby Name Book, and moved in 1990 to help his friend Joanna Prentis with the development of the Starlight Centre in mid-Devon. He writes of this period: "It was inspiring and fascinating but also exhausting! A stream of visitors came in to the Centre, mainly from the United States and Australia, but some also from Europe. We had an amazing and mind-expanding time sitting at the feet of internationally respected spiritual teachers and workshop leaders. What I remember most about this time was the big gatherings when our friends came in to share a meal and talk about our experiences and all the changes that were happening in our lives. It was a wonderful time, full of joy and laughter, and the special events, like Anna Mitchell Hedges sharing her crystal skull, and the two fire-walks led by Esassani, were simply magical!" Joanna Prentis: I was born in Bangalore in southern India. When I was two my family returned to Scotland where I spent my childhood and teenage years. After leaving school I traveled exten-sively, married and lived in Hong Kong for two years and then ten years in the Australian bush in Western Australia, where my three daughters were born. It was there that my interest began in alternative medicine and education, organ

Format: Paperback
This book is so astounding and outstanding that I am moved to write my first Amazon review. We are treated to an insider's experience of not only the Essene community at Qumran, but the travels of Joseph of Arimathea and the true inner teachings of Jesus Christ. I have come to truly understand the Way of the Nazarene as taught by Jesus while He was on Earth in a human body. The teachings are profound and yet so simple--practice love and forgiveness with all. The story of the Essene priests bringing Jesus back to life is a stretch for me, but may very well be entirely true. We see how involved the family of Jesus was in His ministerial training and support. I came to truly feel that Daniel was a good friend and a sense of loss overtook me as the book ended, like losing an old and dear friend to old age. The wisdom in this book is on a par with Conversations With God, and it is just as insightful. The parallels to the work of Dolores Cannon are more than remarkable. They either copied her work or --clearly--their methods of regressive hypnosis reveal the same hidden truths. Unlike Cannon's work, Daniel is an Essene master of the Mysteries and is trained in clairvoyance, and is therefore able to see that he is talking to beings in the future and obtains permission to reveal the secrets he was sworn to preserve even under torture by the Romans or the Sanhedrin. Having studied with Cannon years ago and taken classes at the Berkeley Psychic Institute, I was well prepared to accept the information at face value. Even if you discount the method, the information and teachings revealed by Daniel and Joseph are true, deeply profound, and as moving as anything I have read in Buddhist literature or from my favorite spiritual teacher and writer, Ram Dass.Read more ›

If you have interest in the Essenes, and in the experience of being in Jesus' presence, this is the book for you. Thanks to the author using past life regression, the reader hears about the Core Group that supported Jesus, the Kaloo (Ancient Ones)who gave their wisdom to the Essenes, the Order of Melchizedek, the meeting before Jesus' death and events after his death. This book is a joy to read and to aid us in growing to the Light. I have bought extra copies to share with friends. Thank you, Joanna and Stuart, for writing it. I await your next book.

Format: Paperback
A strange title for a review of a book which is full of historical background? It's based around some extensive past life regression sessions of those who were once Essenes and one of these was a well-known Biblical figure. So the book is historical in nature and gives us a lot of information, with many fascinating details of Essene life. In essence, they were nothing less than the support group for Jesus. However, it is the beautifully poetic spiritual words which come through from Daniel that, for me, make this one of the most wonderful New Age books that I have ever come across.

Yet another confirmation of the truth of Jesus and the Essene Brotherhood who not only predicted the rebirth of the Master Soul, but prepared "the Way" for him to re-enter physical form. Wilson and Prentis weave a wonderful story of their quest to discover and reveal hidden and lost information that we all have the right (and an obligation) to know. Since getting to know them through correspondence I feel strongly that they are sincere and dedicated researchers, and I can't wait for their next book that is to be released in the near future. Thank You Stuart and Joanna for you years of dedication and hard work for my sake, and the sake of all searchers who have the eyes to see and the ears to hear truth. B.

Format: Paperback
This book is a treasure.I have been so moved ,that I am writing my first review ever.It contains a trove of information on the Essenes and specially on the teachings of Jesus . It also contains material I had never known before ,about signifcant events in his life and events before and after the crucification ...and as to what exactly transpired in the tomb....you must read it...
His teaching of unconditional love and forgiveness really struck a chord...with me.The present moment is the only moment of power a person has...It is our clinging to the past and the future that prevents us from realizing our divinity. Forgiveness helps us to stay in the present moment..forgiving ourselves as well as others...The easiest way to God is through the heart...
There is also a mention of the upcoming end of the earth's cycle and our imminent ascension.
Only unconditional love in our hearts would be necessary for us to be ascension compatible.Those who have not raised their vibration enough would have to continue their cycle of evolution on another planet.

There is a lot more information that can be gleaned from it.It is definitely a must read....

Some time ago I was introduced to some of the history of the Essenes by obtaining and reading Dolores Cannon's book "Jesus and the Essenes".
But I found "The Essenes: Children of the Light" revealing a great deal more most interesing historical information, which gave me a much deeper understanding of the Essene religeous and spiritual movement and the leading/teaching role of Jesus within this movement.

As we find in the conclusion of the book (page 339):"It was in the communities of the Essene Brotherhood that the Way was first taught, and perhaps in that setting it was most fully understood. The Essenes did not try to elaborate the teachings of Jesus into any kind of ceremonial or doctrinal structure. The simple and profound fellowship of lives lived close to Mother Earth had taught them them the power and beauty of simplicity"

The book confirmed to me that Jesus had no intention to start a new religeous movement. His teaching was purely aimed at the spiritual development of those people, who were receptive to benefit from it.
