    The Rite of Memphis and Misraim

    in Radio

    On Thursday April 30th, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will present a discussion on the quasi-Masonic Rite of Memphis, sometimes called the Rite of Memphis and Misraim which is highly irregular in orthodox Masonic circles and is usually considered a Clandestine (unrecognized and proscribed) organization to which regular Masons cannot belong. This collection of rites or degrees (96 of them) has a long and colorful history which we will delve into consulting Mackey, Calvin C. Brut, John Yarker and Allen Greenfield. In the 1880's the Rite of Memphis infiltrated the Scottish Rites Northern Jurisdiction and went into competition with Scottish Rite itself to see which system would become an accepted Advanced (Red Lodge) along with York Rite for regular American Masons. Scottish Rite's 33 degree system won the turf war, with Albert Pike's help and the Rite of M&M disappeared into the College of defunct Masonic Rites (yes there is such an institution). The same thing had happened to it in France a hundred years earlier when the Grand Orient absorbed it and locked it up in their archives -- but the M&M is not easily suppressed. Its founder, after signing it over to the Grand Orient, sneaked it into Moldavia (one of Dracula's hang outs) and it briefly rose again. Recently Masonic mavericks Allen Greenfield and Jeff Peace have tried to resurrect it here in the United States. Jeff Peace tried to get a number of regular Masons who were interested in the esoteric involved in M&M, at their peril. So if you would like to explore a delightfully conspiratorial and deliciously controversial secret society that claims to have "All the Secrets of ancient Masonry and certainly enough of its degrees" then tune in and we'll sail up the Nile to the Pyramids.

    Roads of Destiny: Russell Chapman

    in Business

    On Today's Episode, you will meet…(Russell Chapman)


    Born in Erith Kent at the end of 1957, Russell Chapman moved to the Cathedral City of Canterbury at age five. Here he attended the local grammar school. He studied mathematics at Bristol University followed by successful careers in accounting, sales and marketing.


    Married in 1989 to Dianne, they and their cat live in a small village in West Cornwall. Russell’s extensive travel experience includes cruising on the QE2, flying on Concord and riding the Orient Express.


    Writing and publishing a book was a long held ambition. Early in 2014, circumstances gave him the time to start work on his first novel. Doctors diagnosed his father with a terminal illness, giving Russell the motivation to write Roads of Destiny. He wanted to finish the book before his father died; it was not to be.


    Today we will be discussing his new book: Roads of Destiny

    Deepertruth: Our Lady Of Soulfanish-Damascus Syria 1980's, 8:00 Central

    in Religion

    Father René LAURENTIN


    It happened in the Orient. This is not a tale of "A thousand and one nights". It is an astonishing document, truly disconcerting. We are in Damascus (Syria), the city where Saul of Tarsus was about to persecute the first Christians, and when he arrived...as a Christian, overcome by Christ. It is an Arab city where Christians are many, scattered among various confessions, the differences and divergences of which emerged throughout history. One finds in it all the contrasts of the Middle East, with deep Christian roots.


    It happened to Myrna on November 27th, 1982, at Soufanieh, a Christian quarter of Damascus, Syria: a small inexpensive icon, in a plastic setting frame, starts to ooze oil, drop by drop, enough to fill a saucer. Myrna is 18 years old. She is married to Nicolas since 7 months. She welcomes this oil as God's gift. Her husband had bought the icon during a trip to Bulgaria.(1)


    Wise men and scientists, even theologians, may knit their brows.


    Oil? What for, what does it mean ? We have lost the sense of signs. The post-conciliar ritual (Vatican II) has suppressed the anointing of oil to the catechumens, symbol of the combat which characterizes Christian life. This unction, similar to the one applied on wrestlers, who, thanks to it, have escaped the holds of the adversary, is today optional and generally omitted. But one has kept the "Holy Chrism", oil that anoints the priests, bishops, and every baptized, every confirmed, as a sign that all Christians participate to Christ's fellowship. Oil is a Christian language.

    (Outside US: Dial 00 + 1 + 714-464-4891)


    Viki Winterton interviews Dr. Jean Farish!


    Dr. Jean Farish is an award winner of the global 2014 Transformational Author Writing Contest, freelance inspirational writer and guest writer for Xlibris Publishing, and author of The Long Journey Home.  


    Her book is a true story inspired by a welcomed life-changing journey for six months in the Pearl of the Orient (Penang, Malaysia), and the voice of the human condition and quiet desperation to find our way back home. Connecting to the hearts of readers who find themselves unfulfilled, disconnected from their higher self, and questioning their true purpose, her book is the lighted path that will lead them home.


    The Long Journey Home and noted accomplishments in higher education endeared her calling to ‘promote conscious living’ and to ‘educate for purposeful living’ with a shift in her paradigm of service from the classroom to the global community. Founder and Director of PROJECT PEP (Personal Enhancement Project), humanitarian projects sponsored by Dialogue Institute founded by the Turkish American community, she embodies altruistic service with the signature project, “PEP for Angels”, for children hospitalized with cancer.

    Engineering graduate of U. of Houston, Masters in Marketing from UCLA. 35 years in Toy biz (17 @ Mattel, balance of years with own company. Most of career spent living and working in the Orient. Scuba Dive, Lived in Florida Keys for 12 years. Hawaii for two years, S. Cal most other years, Currently live on Emerald Coast of Florida Panhandle ( Gulf Breeze, FL)


     My thirty years of adventure and experiences living and working in the Far East gives me the voice of authority in my writings of Asian business and crime, and how the two are considered one in the same.I was immediately struck as a young man of the Oriental's obsession with power and greed, gambling and sex, and the need to win at any cost. Their driving force of "Face", and the life threatening humiliation of losing it. I have spent my share of time in little known back-water ports around Asia, learning and applying the rules of the East; knowing when a business deal is done, when to run, believe only half of what you see, and nothing of what you are told; survival goes in the plus column.
