The Francis Bacon Society recently reviewed Patrice Chaplin’s City of Secrets: One Woman’s True-life Journey to the Heart of the Grail Legend in their Baconiana journal.

 

The review reads, “Patrice Chaplin’s outstanding book City of Secrets is the story of one such seeker. It is appropriate that the publishers are Quest, because the book itself is the record of a lifelong quest. Books often represent the quest being as a philosophical or a mystical journey. It can be both of these things, but whereas the student’s path can be dry and solitary, and the mystic often turns away from the world, there is also the artist’s way – the search for that in life which is colourful, vivid and exuberantly alive.”

UFO Digest contributor Mary Alice Bennett discusses The Portal: An Initiate’s Journey into the Secret of Rennes-le-Château author Patrice Chaplin in a new article: “Berenger Sauniere and Emma Calve.”

“Rennes-le-Chateau researcher Gerard de Sede wrote that ‘No one will ever know exactly how the Abbe Berenger Sauniere and opera diva Emma Calve met one another.’ De Sede had interviewed those related to the mystery who had known the original RLC players in person. La Diva was the queen of the occult in her time, were she and Sauniere involved with the same secret society? Author Patrice Chaplin has written much about the relationship between these two at Sauniere`s retreat in Girona, northern Spain along with information regarding the Girona Rosicrucian-based ‘private society’ and their activities throughout the history of the region which goes back to the Templars. Her findings will enlighten us on this subject.”

“DAN BROWN MEETS ON THE ROAD“!
Publishers Weekly

The Portal is the true and startling disclosure of respected British writer Patrice Chaplin. Picking up where Patrice’s previous memoir City of Secrets: One Woman’s True-life Journey to the Heart of the Grail Legend leaves off, The Portal details Patrice Chaplin’s 21st century initiation into the Holy Grail’s deeper mystery.

To unveil the sacred and prehistoric purpose of what is now Rennes-le-Château, Patrice had to live the myth of the famed priest Bérenger Saunière, a fellow initiate who rose to recent cult popularity due to modern-day bestsellers such as Holy Blood, Holy Grail and The DaVinci Code. This real-life memoir documents Patrice’s little known purifications and the deadly pilgrimage they prepared her for.

It was 2003 and City of Secrets was in the process of being published in the UK. The charismatic Jose Tarres, real-life custodian of the Holy Grail, great friend to remarkable talents such as Salvidor Dali, Jean Cocteau, Umberto Eco and Simone de Beauvoir, and forever the love of Patrice’s life, had suffered a near fatal heart attack. With Jose then in his seventies, the power of death as a silencer threatened the survival of his society’s guarded knowledge. Patrice had thoroughly researched Jose’s documents and testimony with his permission for the writing of City of Secrets. But upon its completion, Patrice confessed she still did not fully understand the puzzle revolving around the legendary, yet very real, golden cup. “So what was the secret behind the secret?” Patrice asked. With simple resolution, Jose said “You have to do what they did in every century, the initiates. You have to do the Journey”.

Jose’s matter-of-fact assignment comes to life in this deeply profound memoir. Under the guidance of Jose’s teacher, a mysterious recluse and one of the few true living Kabbalists, Patrice embarks in 2004 to ‘Tread the Seven Stars Under the Great Bear’. Through activating the eleven sacred sites along the French/Catalan border, Patrice journeys detachment, death, and rebirth. Unlike some unfortunate initiates, Patrice lived through Mt. Canigou’s great secret, and more so, was decreed to tell about it. What she discovers in the end—startling as it may be—is space/time’s inextinguishable truth: What it is to be “human”, and to be “of” this earth. The mystery of our origins has been imprinted upon our planet from time immemorial. The time for us to remember has come; this journey is now a gift for everyone.

A story of love and magic steeped in the truth, a story that will stay with you years after you read the last pages.
Kathleen McGowan, New York Times best-selling author of The Expected One, The Book of Love , and The Poet Prince

Patrice Chaplin is the first author in decades to add something original to the Rennes-le-Chateau mystery.  No one else has been so involved in the decipherment of a century-old secret that could give a quantum leap in our evolution.
Javier Sierra, New York Times best-selling author of The Lady in Blue

The Grail mystery: Patrice Chaplin lived it and is conveying its incredible nature to the reader.
Phillip Coppens, author of Servants of the Grail and The Stone Puzzle of Rosslyn Chapel

Press Release

The New Age Blog reviewed Patrice Chaplin’s September release

The Portal: An Initiate’s Journey into the Secret of Rennes-le-Château!

The Portal by Patrice Chaplin is a multi-layered read, the levels of which are still making themselves apparent, even days after I turned the last page. On the simplest level, it is beautifully written, the author being superbly adept at never reminding the reader that they are in fact, reading a book. It feels as if we are actually on a journey with her, frightening at times, and always breathtaking, through the countryside of Spain and France. We live vicariously through Chaplin and her vulnerabilities as we accompany her on this quest that pushes her to the edge of what she knows, and what she believes she is capable of. We feel her frustrations and celebrate her courage.

Peter Tongue, host of Awakening to Conscious Co-Creation welcomes Patrice Chaplin, author of City of Secrets: One Woman’s True-life Journey to the Heart of the Grail Legend.


Patrice Chaplin explains how she stumbled upon an ancient mystery in Girona, Spain, a town steeped in medieval grail secrets, Caballistic documents and a mysterious history. Girona was host to numerous famous European actors, mystics, priests, alchemists and artists including the 19th century mysterious priest Berenger Sauniere. This priest and his little church dedicated to Mary Magdalene in Rennes Le Chateau, France, became famous as result of books like “Holy Blood Holy Grail” and “The Da Vinci Code”. Learn what Sauniere was really up to in building the Tour Magdala. Who is the Lady with the Cup? Why did Salvador Dali say Perpignan Station was the Center of the Universe and what is the connection to the Big Dipper and journeys into other dimensions?

Aeon Byte, the first and only ever weekly radio show on Gnosticism, Ancient Religion and the Occult, welcomes Patrice Chaplin, author of City of Secrets: One Woman’s True-life Journey to the Heart of the Grail Legend.


“The Fisherkings. The Holy Grail & The Kabbalah.  Dan Brown and the other Grail hunters got it all wrong.  The Holy Grail was never a cup or a woman, but something both so ordinary and extraordinary most of the world missed it. Its location was never in Southern France (although Sauniere of Rennes-le-Chateau was involved with it), but in a Spanish town called Girona.  Although it has been guarded for thousands of years by various groups, from the ancient Phoenicians to the present Kabbalists, hunted down by the early Catholic Church to Hitler himself, it is really no secret all (just ask the Catalonian population in that region!). Today the Holy Grail is available to anyone who wishes to visit Girona and dare a journey into the primordial secrets of the universe through a ritual practiced since the dawn of human civilization.  Astral Guest– Patrice Chaplin, author of City of Secrets.”

–Miguel Conner, host of Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio

When asked the obligatory question: “Does this have anthing to do with aliens?” Chaplin responded by saying that aliens, as she understood the term, are able to walk through portals and arrive on this planet in a manner similar to Magdalene.                       pc_painting

“I have been told that the Grail material and the initiates’ journey had been handed down from before the time of Atlantis by intelligence greater than ours. Cabbala experiments do lead to transformation and to experiences with many entities that are ‘other than us.’…I understand that the cup is made of the highest form of gold, a white powder which is mentioned in the Bible. Also other materials from ‘elsewhere’ which may or may not survive this atmosphere.” —excerpted from  Chaplin’s Love Affair with the City of Secrets by Sean Casteel, UFO Magazine
