Meet the Team

Martin Faulks | Managing Director

Martin is a specialist in memory and meditation. Known for his demonstrations of recall and mind over matter Martin has written over 20 books on or related to the mind sciences. A keen student of philosophy Martin has travelled the world to train with teachers of different traditions and cultures.

 Martin’s interest in history, self-development and memory 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 and is currently the Lodge Mentor. 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 Martin still attends regularly), 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 relocation.

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 around the world. 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. In the very same year, Martin was promoted to the rank of Past Senior Grand Warden in the Regular Grand Lodge of Italy

Derek Bain | Editor

Derek was initiated into St Peters Lodge 481 in the Province of Northumberland in 1976 by his father. It is not an understatement to say the Freemasonry is in his blood. He has since gone on to be a member of lodges in Dorset, Northants and Huntingdonshire and London, becoming the WM in two lodges. He holds provincial Rank in Northumberland and LGR in London. In the Royal Arch he holds London Chapter Grand Rank. He has been a member of Mark and is a Past Commander in RAM. He has a passion for the esoteric side of Freemasonry and for Orders that promote a deeper understanding of the ‘Mysteries’. It is therefore no surprise that he is very active in SRIA and is currently Chief Adept for the Province of North Eastern Counties.
