Martin Faulks | Managing Director

Martin Faulks was born on the 21st December 1977 in Norwich and now lives in Ely, Cambridgeshire with his fiancée Kindra.


During his youth Martin became a proficient martial artist, winning three gold medals at regional level in the Korean art of Kuk Sool Won. His love of sport extended to fencing and boxing, and he achieved the status of Norfolk Fencing Champion in 1993. During this time Martin developed a great interest in meditation and its related disciplines, drawing inspiration from both the Eastern and Western traditions. A discipline that has truly become his greatest calling in life and has seen him travel to Japan, Egypt, Sri Lanka and the Mediterranean to seek out and train with great masters. His works on these subjects include ‘The Emerald Tablet: A Commentary on the Path of the True Adept’, ‘Shugendo: The Way of the Mountain Monks’, and ‘Adepthood: Complete Success on All Levels’.

 

Martin’s interest in history and philosophy led him to Freemasonry and he was initiated into Burlington Lodge No. 96 in December 2001, raised to the Third Degree in 2003, and he took the chair in 2009. Martin is an active member of Burlington, having been Assistant Director of Ceremonies for three years and Charity Steward for four. One of the earliest founded lodges in England, Burlington was the first ever to have an Inner Guard. It was also one of the two founding lodges of the Emulation Lodge of Improvement, which went on to found Emulation Ritual, the most popular form of Masonic Craft Ritual in the United Kingdom today.


Having found a passion for Freemasonry, Martin, who was at the time running a book distribution company, felt he would like to put more into the Craft and so approached David Allan to see if there was an opportunity with such an eminent firm as Lewis. He was first offered the position of Marketing Manager of the Lewis Masonic imprint in 2005 and later promoted to General Manager in 2012. In 2021 Martin took over the reins and became the new managing director of the company.  Through his work with Lewis Masonic Martin has made it his duty to help spread the good works of Freemasonry and promote a positive image of the craft


Other Masonic appointments have included membership of Cabbell Lodge no 807 in Norwich, where Martin held the position of Master in 2008, but retired from the lodge after his year in the chair due to time restrictions. He is also a Past Master of Canonbury Tower Lodge, which meets in the spectacular surroundings of Canonbury Tower in Islington, London. The former home of Sir Francis Bacon, this lodge is filled with some of the most interesting and scholarly minds in Freemasonry. 

2018 was a very exciting year for Martin. First, he published ‘A Mosaic Palace: Freemasonry and the Art of Memory’, a culmination of several years of research into the underlying structure of Masonry. His findings were first presented to QC Italy in Rome, and he has since given his talk to several other lodges and chapters. Secondly, he was honoured to receive London Grand Rank from the Metropolitan Grand Lodge in London.

In 2021 Martin was elected as a member of the prestigious Quatuor Coronati lodge 2076 which is the premier lodge of research. He is currently serving the lodge as assistant secretary.

 

Martin is also a dedicated member of The Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia in which he holds the following grades/ positions 
  • Grade VII - Adeptus Exemptus
  • Deputy Librarian General
