In this metaphysical “Untaming of the Shrew,” a contemporary Shakespeare has enslaved the players inside of a story that he controls. A contemporary Bacchus sets out to free them from Shakespeare’s spell, and reopen the path to awakening concealed by the sign – Gates of Hell. Before Shakespeare lets that happen, he will write the end of days.
The Lord’s Bedchamber is a western alchemical text in which Bacchus, the Greek God of Theater, teaches the theory and practice of awakening to the Muse writing students at Witch’s Rock, a school for sexual alchemy financed as an adult studio. This novel is a direct challenge to religious fundamentalism and the authoritarian characters of the selfish heart and certain mind that would lock us all inside a cage of lies, and give us the choice between obedience and punishment. The Lord’s Bedchamber poses the question – Can a Christian, a Muslim, a Jew, be a seeker of the truth, or must they be a knower of the truth? It exposes those forces that divide us and suffocate our spiritual and intellectual evolution, and it reveals our path to freedom and awakening, as individuals, as a society, and as a Hero Planet, that can accelerate the people into a future of peace and unimaginable prosperity.
