|One of the Showman's Guilds' symbols,|
recreated by Hamish McCormick.
All the lessons and thoughts that appear on this blog has been inspired by a long term research and creative project of mine. My search for an elusive secret society called the Showman's Guild and their secret teachings known as the Way of the Showman. The fraternity has gone almost undetected throughout history, but through fastidious research particularly over the last four years I have piece by piece assembled an outline of this esoteric history of circus.
I intend to publish snippets of this research right here on the Illuminated Showman. For the Showman's Guild is the shadow, always behind the Illuminated Showman. It's time the shroud of mystery is lifted.
