Lee Gerrard-Barlow. My husband's and my time with Mr. Gerrard-Barlow in the British
Museum was deeply fascinating and fulfilling. His words rang true and combined 
with the presence of the artifacts and symbols, transmitted a visceral understanding
of some of the workings of and principles of alchemy. He imparted some truths that I
couldn't completely understand with my mind yet I could feel and know within my body.
Lee Gerrard-Barlow has an obvious passion for these teachings.                                                                                   Most impressing was his ability to share with us drops of his vast ocean of knowledge
with genuine humility.  We felt warmly welcomed and we left filled-to-the-brim!"

We went on Lee's  tour at the British Museum yesterday. Fascinating and excellent insight
into some of the religious/mystical/magickal beliefs of the Ancient Egyptians and how
that has formed a bedrock of many current magickal practices. He had a very clear and
insightful delivery style and also enabled energy transmission from some of the egregores
associated with the ancient Egyptian objects we were observing. Chap is the real deal
and well worth attending the tour !

My private tour of the Egyptian Galleries with Lee Gerard-Barlow was amazing and I can highly
recommend it to anyone who is interested in Egyptology and/or magick. I have previously
studied Egyptology at Liverpool University and I have visited the British Museum many times
before but I found out information from Mr. Barlow that was completely new to me and caused
me much food for thought and inspired future research. One afternoon is really not long enough
to hear all that Mr. Barlow has to say about the exhibits and the background to the collections
so I would advise anyone who wants to arrange a private tour to book to spend as much time
as can be offered. I understand that Mr. Barlow also takes groups around the Egyptian Galleries
but of course a private tour allows you to ask him many questions (for which he will have
lengthy and fascinating replies!) and you may also take the tour at whatever pace you choose.

It was my great pleasure to have a private tour of the Egyptian section of the British
Museum with the erudite and charming Lee Gerrard-Barlow. Knowledgeable and
enthusiastic about his subject, he unlocked many of the secrets of the objects on
display.  I was left with a greater understanding of, and appreciation for the
spiritual/alchemical beliefs of the ancient Egyptians. Last, but not least,the tour
ended in the Enlightenment Gallery where Mr. Gerrard-Barlow  pointed out several
fascinating objects that he linked back to the ancient Egyptians.Not to be missed !

A few days ago I joined Lee Gerrard- Barlow's tour at The British Museum. If you would
have any interest in either esotericism, mysticism or simply would like to understand
some basic principles and symbols carried through to modern day's religions and spiritual
rituals - then this tour is A MUST when you visit London... Enjoy!                                                                                                                              JACOB HANCKE
If anyone wants to go on an very very splendid tour of the Egyptology Section of the
British Museum, I highly recommend Sir Lee Gerrard- Barlow's brilliant guided tour.                                                                                           CECCILIA SMART 
In London for the Mandrake ‘Saturn’s Return’ event at Treadwell’s last night, I met up
with the charming and erudite Lee Gerrard- Barlow. Lee walked us through his
speciality tour of the Egyptian collection, in which he gives particular attention to the
more esoteric and alchemical aspects of Egyptian spirituality. If ever you are thinking
of a guided tour of the Egyptian collection, then Lee’s the man for the job.
Highly recommend ! EMMA DOVE 

I’d been meaning to take this tour for so long  and I’d had sky-high expectations but Lee

still managed to blow them out of the water.He proceeded to spin a web of symbols and

meaning and context all around us in so many layers and dimensions it was staggering.

Apart from his vast knowledge, he has such passion and joy in the subject , it would be

impossible to listen and be left untouched... The sheer amount of facts left me reeling

- in the good way! Seriously, if you are ever in London , if there’s only one thing you do,

make it this tour!  You can thank me later.

Hi Everyone,

 Just letting you know that myself , my Wife and our good friend went on Lee's tour last

Sunday and it was absolutely fascinating! We all found it opened up a completely

different view of the ancient Egyptian culture compared to the more mundane tours and

really brought to life the vibrancy of the Spiritual  Essence of the ancient Egyptian culture

and beliefs.

Lee is a wonderful guide who is genuinely passionate about highly his subject and we highly
recommend this highly fascinating and captivating tour !

I went on Lee's tour at the British Museum yesterday and really enjoyed it , particularly
because Lee clearly has a much deeper understanding of the Ancient Egyptian symbolism,  
going beyond ordinary archaeology.  Had a nice chat over coffee during the half-way break
too . I think I'm now officially addicted to the Egyptian sections of the British Museum!
 Thanks Lee !!

If you are deciding whether to go on this tour, then i urge you to do so ! Drenched in

mystery and magic with a guide who is both very knowledgeable  and personable.

So good in fact,  that  we are booking another time !

I couldn't recommend Lee's guided tour enough ! Incredibly informative, very engaging

and entertaining guide, through the Egyptians perspective on magical thinking , via                                    the British museum exhibits.  Beautiful knowledge.  Not to be missed!   Thanks , Lee !

You will enjoy a highly informative and engaging hour which covers all the key figures

and myths of the time, their ritualistic and symbolic significance and see how it

all still remains relevant within society today. Great stuff Lee , I shall be coming back

for lecture 2 in the series.                                                                                                                                                                                          HEATHER MORRIS                                                                                    

                                                              

Thank you for your great tour I took with you last Friday...We were all so very                                       impressed with your thought provoking explanations of some of the pieces in the
Egyptian rooms and Enlightenment gallery.                                                                                                            It was very interesting from a number of esoteric perspectives and went far beyond
the dry museum tours of mummies, dynasties and dead king lists offered by others.  
Keep up 'The Great work'' , Lee !

Had a great time at the British Museum with Lee , a really enlightened and mesmerising

tour, of the Egyptian artifacts. from an occult way of analyzing the way the Egyptians

used their magic in daily life and rituals....Well worth the time and money spent !

A must for lovers of all things Egyptian especially the magical/spiritual side and even  
for those who are simply curious to know more. The tour was fun, so fascinating , lively,
and easy to understand and the guide is clearly passsionate about this topic. It does not
matter whether you are a complete novice or if you already have some knowledge ...
It gave me a much clearer understanding of a lot of the basic symbolism on Egyptian                                   statues  and objects in the museum. Lee also touches upon how this symbolism is
universal to other religions e.g. Hinduism and how it's influence has stretched over
into Christianity. Highly recommended !

I had such a wonderful day yesterday .It was incredibly interesting,to the point where i
completely forgot to take pictures! Sorry, I was just too busy picking my jaw off the ground.  
Our guide,Lee Gerrard- Barlow, is himself a practitioner and his passion,sense of humor
and genuine interest in the subject matter had our rapt attention for 3 hours straight.                                          He was very patient with our never-ending stream of questions even when we realized
that we'd been questioning him for so long that the museum  was about to close! I have to
recommend this tour to anyone with an afternoon free in London!Don't  worry if this isn't
a topic you have much knowledge about in advance- your mind will still be blown, I promise!

Learnt much that was new and interesting about the myth and history on Lee's Egyptian
Enlightenment tour but just as importantly i re-connected to Egypt from a different perspective
So much to learn yet still, am ready to go back to Egypt with new eyes....Lee is an excellent
guide in the Egyptian and Western Mysteries. I only wish he did the tours over there! I had
been waiting a year to go on this tour , saving it for a special occasion It was worth the wait ! 
Lee tailored it really well for me and my friends ,with an esoteric touch ! I would definitely do it
again !!

What a excellent day I have just had. I went to London to the museum for a tour of specific things Egypt with knowledgeable Lee Gerrard-Barlow . . Definite recommend ! His tour is great, pitches it in a way that covers the differing levels of knowledge and interest of those there. Both interesting and engaging.. Just love it when threads join and lead and trigger a new avenue and thinking on differing levels. . Very glad I went.

I went on the Egyptian tour at the British museum recently and it blew my mind... The tour gave me plenty of creative inspiration and it was a delight to revel in such an ancient source of creativity and understanding.. Lee went over and beyond to make this a very memorable experience. He is personal and informative. Thanks Lee !                                                                                             LESLIE CLAIRE
 
 
 
We recently had the pleasure of being shown around the Egyptian section of the British Museum by Lee Gerrard- Barlow. What can I say apart from we were truly mesmerised by Lee's deep understanding of his subject. We all gained some very insightful knowledge, wisdom and understanding and I would recommend his tour to anyone who wants to begin to answer the question: Quo vadis? 
                                                     COLIN SCHWINGEN
 
I will definitely be taking another one of these tours. Lee's Tours are remarkably exhilarating and I discovered so many interesting things. Also such a great way to spend a Sunday. I recommend highly.
Thanks Lee and I will look forward to hearing more about the Scarab beetle. '                                                          AMANDA, CORSICA STUDIOS 
 
 
''A wonderful tour indeed, Lee presents the tour in a way unlike any other, digging deep into the hidden symbols within each piece which goes hand in hand with those who attended his course in hermetic magnetism thereby taking your knowlege and understanding to the next level. Combining the knowlege from his "hermetic magnetism" course and the Egyptian tour allowed me to further incorporate the hermetic teachings to benefit my life even further. A tour that would I recommend to absolutely everyone!"

My journey brought me to the British Museum to meet with Lee Gerrard- Barlow, for the tour of ‘Egyptian Magic & Enlightenment’. A journey through the teachings of a great period in our history. A fascinating guide to symbology, mysticism and much much more.
As someone who has spent many years studying texts and the internet, this tour was like a
dream come true. The imagery i’ve studied, the philosophy i’ve reasoned with, the tales i’ve
heard, there in front of my eye, as if timeless. This occasion Perfectly accompanied by Lee
the perfect tour guide, charismatic and full of knowledge.
If you’re unsure as to whether this is for you or not, don’t be. Do not risk living with regret,
seize the moment and enjoy this experience - it’s truly magical. So much so, i’ll be going back next Sunday at the same time.  A beautiful day, thank you Lee !

Lee Gerrard- Barlow's tours of the Egyptian galleries at the British Museum are absolutely brilliant. My perspective on these beautiful sculptures, carvings and ritual objects has completely shifted forever. In fact everything has shifted forever. A very magical four hours . Definitely check out the tours...
 
Mr. Gerrard-Barlow breathes life into the mysterious, sleeping artifacts on display in the Egyptian
Wing at the British Museum. My partner and I enjoyed our 1/2 day tour with Lee so much that
we went back for a second whole tour. We left London dreaming of more, still. A four hour tour
with Lee may  traverse all of 100 feet of museum display cases and stone sculptures, but the
territory that he surveys in that short physical distance outmeasures in awareness the scope of
entire books on the subject.
It is a rich and vibrant path of discovery, all the more rewarding for Lee's expert bearing, his
enchanting manner and the professional posture of his delivery. Any interest at all in the
hidden realms will  be rewarded  whether you’re a novice, an adept, or (dare I venture?) an
incarnation of the Blackstar himself,as Lee points out no end of fascinating relationships and
overturns arcane nuggets that any conventional tour or self-guided walk would no doubt ignore.
True to his subject , Lee Gerrard-Barlow enlightens with a twinkle in his eye, a sense of magic
for the world he unveils  and a knack for aligning landmarks one never before thought
to connect.. A-ha moments abound..                                                                                                                 For anyone eager to better understand the graphic and aural symbol complexes of the Ancient
Egyptians ,to appreciate their nuanced and subtle application on display in the artifacts at hand
and to sense their resonating role within the old cosmology, a tour with Lee is absolutely
paramount !
He unifies the whole  picture and tunes it with a charge you can feel. A holiday in London
without taking-up Lee for a guide, is a sorely missed opportunity

‘Lee offers a tour of the Egyptian artifacts in the British Museum which succeeds in getting underneath the historical overlay to their symbolic heart. It was an intensely rich afternoon and journey into the esoteric heart of the Egyptian way of life. Lee is clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about this and generous in sharing his study and informed speculation about this fascinating period in mankind’s history.’
