Hi, everybody.
Hope you are having a great festive break. I am still trying to complete my current book project, which is a special Egypt book I'll bring you details of in due course. In the meantime I want to bring you news of a tour I doing with Hugh Newman and JJ Ainsworth to Gobekli Tepe, Karahan Tepe and many more ancient and religious sites in Turkey. This is scheduled for Sept 4-16, thus 13 days/12 nights, and will take in not just the these sites but also
the ancient city of Harran, the Neolithic city of Çatal Höyük, Konya, home of the Whirling Dervishes, the Bronze Age/Hittite sites of Alaca Hoyuk and Hattusa; Sanliurfa, the birthplace of Abraham, the ancient city of Mardin, and various so-called Tas Tepeler sites (Pre-Pottery Neolithic sites with 11,000-year-old T-pillars). This is the traditional area of the Garden of Eden, as well as the home of the Watchers and Nephilim of the book of Enoch, and, of course, the Annunaki of Sumerian and Babylonian mythology. We will also visit the huge underground city of Derinkiyu as well as the Fairy Chimneys of Cappadocia.
All details are outlined below.
Obviously, some of you may know that I have had some problems in Turkey, but I believe I have over come these now. Plus the discoveries being made right now at Karahan Tepe are too great for me to ignore. I have to get back out there whatever the cost. In 2022 I shall be writing extensively about Karahan and so will need to get back to a place I first visited as far back as 2004 and have continued to visit periodically since that time. I have done various articles on the subject, such as the following:

Okay, here all all the tour details.

Hosted by Andrew Collins, author of Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods, with Megalithomaniac Hugh Newman, author of Earth Grids and Stone Circles, and special guest from the USA, JJ Ainsworth, a leading authority on ancient symbolism.

The breathtaking plains and steppes of eastern Turkey, the traditional Garden of Eden or terrestrial Paradise, was the setting for the Neolithic revolution and the rise of civilization.
We visit some of the world’s most exciting archaeological sites including Göbekli Tepe, the oldest stone temple complex and now a World Heritage Site, and Karahan Tepe, a newly excavated site from the same era, as well as numerous other Tas Tepeler sites that are currently under excavation.
The new Sanliurfa Archaeological Museum has hundreds of artefacts from Göbekli Tepe, Nevali Çori and other Pre-Pottery Neolithic sites.
We also explore the ancient city of Harran, and Çatal Höyük, the world’s first city. We visit the city of Konya, home of the Whirling Dervishes; Alaca Hoyuk and Hattusa that have incredible megalithic polygonal masonry similar to Peru, along with Sanliurfa, the ancient Christian city of Edessa, birthplace of Abraham; and the traditional area of the Garden of Eden, home of the Watchers and Nephilim of the book of Enoch, and the Annunaki of Sumerian myth and legend.
We will also visit the huge underground city of Derinkiyu as well as the Fairy Chimneys of Cappadocia.
Andrew, Hugh and JJ will be presenting evening lectures throughout the tour, and discussing new theories and research on many of the sites visited.

Our journey continues eastwards into the Tektek Mountains where we will visit Karahan Tepe, Göbekli Tepe's sister site, where some of the most extraordinary discoveries anywhere in the world are being made at this time. We explore its astronomically aligned stone enclosures and see its estimated 250 T-shaped pillars. Many of the site's more portable carvings are now on display at Sanliurfa's breathtaking archaeological museum.

Karahan Tepe's Structure AD, also known as the Great Ellipse. Note its extraordinary elliptical geometry, first noted by chartered engineer Rodney Hale and Andrew Collins in 2021.

Both Hugh Newman and Andrew Collins have been visiting Karahan Tepe for many years and have developed a strong knowledge of its Pre-Pottery Neolithic culture, in particular their interest in the cult of the serpent and celestial alignments involving the sun, Milky Way and Cygnus constellation.

After leaving the area of Sanliurfa the tour group will journey onward to the beautiful ancient city of Mardin, where we visit various sites of historical and mystical importance.

Origins of the Gods: The Qesem Cave, Skinwalkers, and Contact with Transdimensional Intelligences
Foreword by Erich von Daniken
A detailed examination of the role played by shamanism and communication with non-human intelligences in the development of civilization
• Shares supporting evidence from the spiritual and shamanic beliefs of more than 100 Native American tribes
• Shows how the earliest forms of shamanism began at sites like Qesem Cave in Israel more than 400,000 years ago
* Explores how our ancestors used shamanic rituals at sacred sites to create portals for communication with non-human intelligences
* Provides scientific answers for human interactions with transdimensional intelligences using the latest cutting edge discoveries in quantum realities
From Göbekli Tepe in Turkey to the Egyptian pyramids, from the stone circles of Europe to the mound complexes of the Americas, Andrew Collins and Gregory L. Little show how, again and again, our ancestors built permanent sites of ceremonial activity where geomagnetic and gravitational anomalies have been recorded.
They investigate how the earliest forms of animism and shamanism began at sites like the Denisova Cave in the Altai Mountains of Siberia and Qesem Cave in Israel more than 400,000 years ago. They explain how shamanic rituals and altered states of consciousness combine with the natural forces of the earth to create portals for contact with otherworldly realms—in other words, the gods of our ancestors were the result of an interaction between human consciousness and transdimensional intelligences.
The authors show how the spiritual and shamanic beliefs of more than 100 Native American tribes align with their theory, and they reveal how some of these shamanic transdimensional portals are still active, sharing vivid examples from Skinwalker Ranch in Utah and Bempton in Northern England.
Ultimately, Collins and Little show how our modern disconnection from nature and lack of a fully visible night sky makes the manifestations from these ultraterrestrial intelligences seem random. If we can restore our spiritual connections, perhaps we can once again communicate with the higher dimensional beings who triggered the advancements of our earliest ancestors and may still be providing knowledge and insights to humanity today.

Watch this very special podcast discussion between Erich von Daniken, author of groundbreaking book Chariots of the Gods, and Andrew Collins on the true nature of extraterrestrial intelligences and their impact on the rise of civilization. We are not just talking about the Pyramids of Egypt or Gobekli Tepe here, but the impact on our world of transdimensional beings since the genesis of shamanism and the first use of altered states of consciousness at places like Israel's Qesem Cave as much as 400,000 years ago.
