Star Crossed Serpent III:‘The Taper That Lights The Way’ (Cochrane’s Letters Revealed)

Robert Cochrane spoke of the man in the red cap bringing illumination to the world – the sun/son of light, of the morning star, at last, his words and works are recorded, and published in celebration of a vital and thriving heritage. thank you Mandrake Press for making this possible.


Those that speak of secret and secrecy, and not of discretion or wisdom, are those who have not discovered Truth.”


Subject to continual speculation and study, the enigmatic words of this erstwhile poet have touched the Craft, influencing all called to it, irrespective of their path or journeying. Such was his genius, such was his unique gift, ever the barb of fate, he was beyond his era. His legacy has enriched the tone of all seekers and all pilgrims who would cast aside the veil of illusion in favour of the ‘Real.’

 For the first time, his own Clan are able to offer clarification on the mystery of his Faith through his evolving Craft, begun officially at the onset of the decade that witnessed his tragic death. Finally, through the gift of several early letters, now brought together with those already published, their message is consciously revealed. Under a carefully constructed chronology, this is ‘his’ story, unfurled through his words and works.

 As the ‘Order of the Sun,’ his People of Goda, of the Clan of Tubal Cain, we continue to hold aloft his brave taper, that for the ‘Hound’ and ‘Pale Guiden,’ in the Great Hall of Caer Ochran, is ‘worth a light!’

 Illumination of the ‘Cochrane Tradition,’ is our testament to the valour of mentors past and those yet to be.



the taper that lights the way that's worth a light

Following on the groundwork prepared by Evan John Jones, the thread continues its narrative spanning several decades of service to the mysteries. Experiential research en-fleshes the seeds planted by ancestral journeyman whose wisdoms enrich the stream in which this lineage flows. Inspired, guided and prompted, we live each day, each moment in its Wyrd. Concepts and core principles germane to our Mythos and Praxis are nurtured by its aegis.  By their gifts, we gain ever deeper appreciation of a ‘Perennial Philosophy,’ as an ecumenical undercurrent that continues to reveal the source and the causalities of our work and its obligations, both to ourselves, and through our ancestors, to those yet to be.

Subtle treasures from our rich and diverse heritage are shared here, through the literary genius of a man who plumbed the arte to give vibrant impetus to the folklore and legends of these precious Isles. Overarching paradigms find expression in the vital tenets of Clanship, its Egregore, Tradition, Lore, History and evolutionary aspirations, as we the People of Goda carry forward the words and works of Robert Cochrane through his Clan, the Clan of Tubal Cain.  Cumulative works from the first two volumes find fruition to herald the eternal paean, the Song of the Beloved: Promethean gnosis of the Star Crossed Serpent.
