About the author:
Lewis E. Graham, Ph.D., D.D. was raised in a small, East Coast town facing industrial decline due to globalization. As the son of a successful entrepreneur, he was relentlessly curious and achievement-focused—with ardent pro-civil rights beliefs and broad spiritual interests from an early age. He was a natural learner and successful student.
He earned a B.S. degree in Psychology from Virginia Commonwealth University. He then earned an M.S. from the University of Georgia, where he also was awarded a Ph.D. degree in Clinical Psychology with a co-major in Psychophysiology. This unusual path of study aimed to study the mind-body connection at an early point in scientific focus upon that area of emerging research. It later became known as psychoneuroimmunology.
After graduation, Dr. Graham pursued a three-year postdoctoral training curriculum as a US Public Health Service Fellow and served as an adjunct faculty member at the Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Medicine. In 1981, he completed multidisciplinary postdoctoral studies before entering a business career. Having been a marathoner and amateur triathlete at Stanford, he competed in the World Championship Triathlon in Nice, France in 1983. He also undertook community service as a Planning Commissioner and later was elected to the City Council in Brisbane, California, serving one term as Mayor.
In the early 1980s, he founded and managed (for ~20 years) a successful international consulting firm with offices in San Francisco, London, Zürich, and Oslo--living primarily in London during the 1990s to better serve European clients.
Starting in 1987, Dr. Graham began a 13-year program of divinity studies. Consistent with a dramatic shift in personal values, in 1998 he made a life transition to a path of service. This included select charitable giving and esoteric contributions.
Ultimately he was ordained as a minister by both the Temple of Knowledge and the Huna Heiau, which also awarded him its Doctorate of Divinity degree (D.D.) in March 2000 after years of dedicated learning and wide-ranging Gnostic immersion.
Dr. Graham’s in-depth exposure to multiple areas of orthodox research has been invaluable for the GNOSIS series. It is a novel fusion of science and spirituality that integrates decades of research, travel, inquiry, and sincere seeking to gain clarity on clues suggested by long-standing esoteric riddles.
APOTHEOSIS: Last Lap in the Human Race
A Spiritual Autobiography
Dr. Lewis E. Graham Ph.D. D.D.
This no-holds-barred backstory provides candid context for how the author’s Gnosis series came to fruition. That 4-volume set distills more than four decades of seeking out astonishing answers to enduring esoteric riddles.
"Dr. Lew Graham's book is a romp through delicious esoteric precepts and searing connectivity. Read it. It's a beautiful thing."
-Viki King, Author "How To Write a Movie in 21 Days"
"Dr. Lew Graham shares his incisive and humble story with us in Apotheosis in a way that leaves you feeling like you’ve just gotten that much closer to the source of all that is good. Shocking stories of synchronicity abound in a way that brings a sense of awe for all that which we still know so little about. While Dr. Graham’s expansive and rich understanding of Gnostic cosmology breathes wisdom into the pages of Apotheosis, it is not overbearing in language, but accessible and warm. This is one of those books you keep to remind you that there is much to be marveled at even in the face of the most adverse and violent conditions the world can present. I offer Apotheosis to you with my highest recommendation."
