It is very possible that you have never personally heard of Joshua Free before—and yet millions of people have enjoyed medias, music and motion pictures strongly influenced by his invisible hand. Known worldwide in the underground occult scene, Joshua Free is a prolific author of over two dozen books on ancient history, esoteric archaeology, alternative mysticism, practical occultism, and NexGen Systemology. He has been involved with practical Earth magic since he was 12, starting with his first initiation into Pheryllt Druidism by Douglas Monroe in 1995 as “Merlyn Stone” and holds an honorary position of “Bard of the Twelfth Chair” at “New Forest Centre for Magickal Studies.” He founded the modern “Mardukite” movement in 2008, and is the presiding Director of the “Mardukite Research Organization,” conceiving development of their most famous literary contribution: “Necronomicon: The Anunnaki Bible” and research volumes composing the “Mardukite Core.” An advanced division of the organization, the “NexGen Systemological Society” (NSS), later formed underground in 2011
JOSHUA FREE began participating in his planetary mission by receiving ‘unofficial’ personal apprenticeships from individual mentors who were, themselves, members (active or preexisting) of the Illuminati, Rosicrucians, Freemasons, Catholic Mystics, Christian Gnostics, Buddhist Monks, Freezone Earth (Independent Scientology), the Dragon Court / Dragon Society, Theosophical Society, Aurum Solis, the GD (Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn), the O.T.O. (Ordo Templi Orientis) and A.A. (Argentium Astrum) among others.
At the age of 12, JOSHUA FREE was officially initiated into the Pheryllt Druid tradition (based on the work of Douglas Monroe) and then began leading his own Druid-styled organization at 13. The following year he was installed to the ‘third degree’ of Celtic Wicca. In the mid-1990′s, he was even heralded the youngest initiate to join the “Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids” (OBOD), a large international organization based in England that New Age (Druidic) authors frequently cite.
While in high school during the late-1990′s, JOSHUA FREE maintained leadership (under the name “Merlyn Stone“) of a small esoteric mystical-magical experimental research group, the “Elven Fellowship Circle of Magick” (EFCOM), which met both in private and publicly in Washington Park (Denver, Colorado) from 1998 through 2000. Considered a prodigious youth among growing Rocky Mountain New Age Scene, he wrote many underground manifestos on various ‘New Age’ topics using the pseudonym “Merlyn Stone” while still a teenager — one of the first and most famous being the Sorcerer’s Handbook that has reached thousands of readers and is currently celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2018!
JOSHUA FREE quickly became a controversial underground occult figure (as author Merlyn Stone) that advocated radically diverse approaches to Druidic Philosophy & Metaphysics — including active participation with the New Forest “Pheryllt” group of his primary Druidic mentor, Douglas Monroe, for which he was unseated from all positions (particularly OBOD) and disappeared from public view — all while still a teenager in the 1990’s!
Although now best known for his work on Sumerians, the Anunnaki and Babylonian Tradition for the “Mardukites“, JOSHUA FREE‘s work on the Secret Dragon (Elven) Legacy and modern PHERYLLT Druid Tradition is also paramount. In addition to his own collected works anthology — THE DRUID COMPLEAT — his writing has even been used for the third volume completing the classic bestselling ‘Merlyn’ trilogy by Douglas Monroe: “The Deepteachings of Merlyn“, in 2011.
Before returning to mainstream view in 2008 (nearly a decade later) via the internet, JOSHUA FREE had already spent fifteen years intensely exploring esoteric sects of society, underground counter-culture and contemporary academia. Following an individualized path, preferring personal apprenticeships over direct membership in certain groups and organizations, his all-encompassing ‘Universalist’ pursuit is to unify the knowledge and potential of the ‘human condition’ experiencing life in the “metaphysical universe”. The literary cornerstone of this effort, consolidated and released in 2008 as ARCANUM: THE GREAT MAGICAL ARCANUM, not only earned him an honorary position in the “Ordo Lapsit Exillis” from Tracy R. Twyman and then as a companionate to the true revival “Dragon Court” of (the now ‘late’) Nicholas de Vere — JOSHUA FREE has also contributed to the rise of his own revolutionary ‘Next Generation’ (NexGen) underground movement…
On the Summer Solstice of 2008, JOSHUA FREE founded the inception of the modern “Mardukite“ movement — currently in its tenth active year of operation, with extensive literary materials now in print. In Spring of 2011, he co-founded the “Systemology” division (Systemological Society) of the “Mardukite Research Organization.” Drawn from the truth of the most ancient spiritual technologies on the planet!
JOSHUA FREE (known as “Nabu” to the Mardukites) is currently the author of over 30 books on wide-spanning subjects. He has personally published over 100 unique editions of his work for the Mardukite movement in addition to providing expert private third-party consultation and materials preparation for independent media publication for others — making him personally responsible for over 200 different books independently published from varying authors since 2008.
