Belsebuub’s Work

Belsebuub’s work describes the path of the spiritual sun/son that ultimately leads to the return to source consciousness, a process described as immortality, salvation, enlightenment, or liberation in a number of ancient sacred texts. This path can also be found imbued in the very fabric of creation, reflected in the yearly cycle of the sun through the solstices and equinoxes.

Belsebuub’s writings explore how this solar cycle depicts the return to the spiritual source of creation. He states that this spiritual process was once the foundation for the ancient religion of the sun, which spanned the globe in prehistoric times and left behind an incredible legacy of megalithic monuments, pyramids, cairns, and other sacred sites.

In the Path of the Spiritual Sun, co-written with his wife Lara, Belsebuub explains that many ancient sites are in fact much older than is accepted by mainstream archaeology, and that the many precise alignments to the solstices and equinoxes in sites found around the world were a method used by the ancients to encode spiritual teachings. This method helped ensure these teachings would pass the test of time, even across thousands of years. Belsebuub and Lara’s ongoing work involves uncovering and piecing together the evidence for this ancient religion and interpreting it for the modern era using the knowledge Belsebuub has gained while on the path of the spiritual sun/son.

Written from Experience

Belsebuub writes from his own experience of spiritual practice over the last 28 years. He began this process himself in 1991 after he first learnt its key exercises. You can read more about who Belsebuub is on his website.

From his experience of the path of the spiritual sun/son, Belsebuub is able to write accurately about each stage of the process and what someone needs to do to experience it themselves. This information has been given many times in the past by spiritual figures throughout history, but has been repeatedly suppressed, persecuted, destroyed, and obscured. Today, Belsebuub describes it in a complete form that is understandable in contemporary terms, so that anyone who is interested can begin this process too.

By tapping into his experience of the esoteric side of life — a source of knowledge that mystics throughout time have been able to access — Belsebuub’s work is also able to shed light on many formerly incomprehensible ancient texts, sites, and symbols that expressed this process. Furthermore, he provides techniques to explore spiritual and scientific phenomena such as out-of-body experiences, psychic faculties, dreams, the possibility of life after death, and much more.

Providing Spiritual Information for Free

Belsebuub provides his work in accordance with the principle that spirituality is a gift given freely from the universe, which should be shared with others in the same way. For this reason, he has never charged for his work, instead aiming to provide information about spiritual topics that is freely available to anyone interested in it.

After beginning his spiritual journey in the 90s, Belsebuub spent a decade teaching thousands of people at no cost in cities across the UK and Australia. In 2001 he began authoring a series of free online courses on astral travel, self-discovery, and esoteric knowledge that became the most popular of their kind. Over 90,000 people registered for his courses. He stopped teaching in 2011 to focus on writing.

Belsebuub continues to work by the same principles today; all the work on is provided free of charge, except for printed books, which are provided as close to cost as possible and from which he does not receive any royalties. You can read more about why Belsebuub’s work is free here:

Lara Atwood

Lara Atwood had a number of spiritual experiences from childhood and in the early 2000s began investigating out-of-body experiences and other spiritual phenomena after discovering techniques taught by Belsebuub. Since then she has spent over 12 years researching esoteric subjects, and today works alongside her husband, Mark (Belsebuub), to write books and publish videos on the religion of the sun. She describes herself as a writer, researcher, and practitioner of the ancient religion of the sun, which has been revived by Belsebuub — the evidence for which can be found in many ancient sites and teachings throughout the world and in the very design of the universe itself.

Researching and writing alongside Belsebuub, she is co-author of The Path of the Spiritual Sun and sole author of The Ancient Religion of the Sun. Belsebuub provides the esoteric knowledge — gained from his over 28 years of personal experience — which Lara then combines with her research into science, cosmology, archaeology, and ancient texts. Lara posts updates about her work at the website
