Godspeed, John Michell

April 26, 2009

John Michell, author of some 40-odd titles that covered everything from sacred geometry to archaeoastronomy, euphonics to Fortean phenomena, passed away April 24th. He was 76.

michellI first discovered the writings of John Michell as a school boy, happening upon a copy of The View Over Atlantis in the bring one/take one box at my local library in ’77 or ’78.

It was a fascinating book, especially to my pre-teen mind, sending my head all a spin. This was my introduction to ley lines, telluric currents, and sacred geometry, all of which center prominently in my current worldview.

He was, without a doubt, one of the premiere pioneers of the New Age.

May he find solace in the Summerland.
