The sons of dawn

Never spoken of on the mainstream media...

Never featured on any TV documentary...

...And hardly ever mentioned even in Christian church services...

THE ESSENES are a mystical cult whose most famous member was JOSHUA OF NAZARETH.


Baptised By The Holy Hallucinogenic Spirit...

Baptism was a soul-wrenching experience - and to be baptised meant a strong physical, mental and religious RITES OF PASSAGE...

'Mystery Schools' operated all over ancient Palestine.

Many baptismal centres were on seasonal river beds.

Baptizers had regional celebrity - such as JOHN THE BAPTIST...

Often baptism was the climax of a long 40 day fasting and nights of prayer.

The expert Mystery School of the day was run by the ESSENES at QUMRAN...

An elite sect within the Essene community called themselves THE SONS OF DAWN...

The Sons of Dawn...

Wide-eyed and ecstatic, speeding, feeling sexually and intellectually primed, their nostrils filled with the intoxicating aromas of incense, their eyes seeing the etheric, quivering, plasma-like glow and lattice work of the aura over all faces, bodies and objects, the sacred anointing oil and inhaled infusions delivered the so called Teachers of Righteousness and their devotees to a psychic landscape made of pure expanded consciousness...

In this altered state of Holiness, floating in salted waters, they sought the Word of Yaweh and would bathe away the unwanted side effects of their psycho-active unctions, able to control their body temperature and concentrate on enjoying the higher visions of a holy dream-state in the desert night.

Such was the nightly devout activities of the 'Sons of Dawn' described in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Ingesting Mandrake and Henbane causes the pupils to dilate and this makes bright light uncomfortable - again, this is a side effect one could not feasibly endure in the already bright desert. The copious references to all night vigils in the Dead Sea Scrolls points me to the conclusion that ritualistic ingestion and anointing probably took place at night or at dawn - the nightshade family having always been the drug of choice for 'witches' and creatures of the night.

It is interesting to note, that since these rituals most probably took place at night or dawn, this could be the origin for this plant family’s common botanical name; the ‘nightshade’ plants. The plants of shadows. The Goetia, also known as the Book of Shadows in some European translations, contains within it, spells or invocations to bring forth the demons who were also known as ‘shades’ or ‘shadows’.

At night, with small clay oil lamps placed around the pool, anointed Essenes could bathe whilst listening to elders singing incantations, psalms and hymns. This is perhaps the true meaning of a Baptism. The air heavy with Frankincense, Myrrh and Benzoin, the water infused with aromatic herbs and the body tingling and shimmering with heat, subjects would float in cool waters, receiving instruction from an Essene Gnostic and perhaps be read treatise from the Qumran library for contemplation during this altered state of consciousness. What a sublime and perfect way to cleanse oneself of the accumulated detritus of living in an urban society - with such a large number of bathing pools in the Qumran community, one must wonder if ritualistic bathing was not a pastime for which large parts of their settlement were especially built - they had, after all, deliberately ousted themselves from the city, and taken up residence in the desert, far from the madding crowd of Rabbis. The Essenes were self-exiled religious purists, following a gnosis which, through baptism, delivered their psyche to the Godhead. 

And that, is just the tip of the iceberg… Investigated in a 500 page large format hardcopy book and two hour DVD movie written and produced by CHRIS EVERARD.

The Cannabis plant evolved about 28 million years ago on the eastern Tibetan Plateau, it is a close relative of the common hop found in beer, it’s euphoric effects which trigger philosophical appreciation of human relationships, nature and lateral thinking is partly responsible for a ‘Cambrian explosion’ in the evolution and size of the human brain. More than 4000 years ago, Chinese farmers began to grow cannabis, and more than 5,000 years ago in the United States and Canada First Nations people were already using it as an aid to tribal debate and trigger for psycho-active telepathic communion with Elder Spirits, which is at the heart of the world’s oldest religion; SHAMANISM...

“This book is much more professionally produced than your average book - it has a full color chapter and every page is illustrated - it’s not just a great read - with plenty of humorous and astonishing observations - but Chris Everard has managed to condense hundreds of thousands of years of human history into a book which you literally cannot put down and laugh at on nearly every page. Chris has an easy readable, witty style, which is so lacking in most books on ancient history”
