About Francis Xavier Aloisio

Francis Xavier Aloisio was born on the island of Malta, but spent more than half of his life abroad, first in Peru as a missionary priest and then in England where he settled after resigning from the Church. He worked as a Probation Officer, as Social Worker and as the CEO of a Charity in Sussex, UK caring for people with learning disabilities.
Whilst abroad, he realised that not many people knew about the temples of Malta. On his return home, he had a strong urge to find a way to promote the unique wealth of the Maltese prehistoric culture. Firstly he created a collection of paintings depicting Malta’s journey throughout history; and then he started doing his own research on the Temples. He completed a trilogy on the temples of Malta; Islands of Dream, The Age of Magic and Wisdom and The New Temple Dreamers. Now he publishing this pocket size handbook as an Alternative Guide to the Maltese Temples.
Francis started painting late in his life as a way of self-expression, and he draws his inspiration from his Maltese background and his experience in South America and England. He is a visionary artist, author, teacher and subtle energy guide and temple escort. Francis accompanies people who come to Malta and Gozo to experience the many energy sites and their link with Atlantis. Recently, together with Christine, he has begun to accompany people who want to connect with the Lemuria Energies found along the Central Coast of California and especially around Cambria and Big Sur.

Review by: noelabela on Dec. 18, 2015 :
This book is much more than an auto biography. There has been a long-felt need for such a narrative to be told. Although the author's experience is unique, the broad outline of his story is in line with that of many souls inhabiting this earth.

Innocent childhood is conditioned very early in its lifetime by authority, 'education', society and even family. Many 'choose' their place in society based on expectations placed upon them, and then later on, they discover their true selves. Sadly, most are not strong enough to take the leap of faith out of their soul cages. Bolder souls, maybe with a little luck and with some help from real friends do take the steps towards liberty. This is the story of such a soul and thankfully, it has a happy ending.

The reader can find a clear testament to the success of the author's healing process. This is in the form of the language used and spirit shown while writing about entities and people who have had a negative impact on his life. He has made his peace with them as he calmly relates their stories in the manner of an honest, truly independent reporter. There is no anger expressed. There are no accusations. There is no judgement. There is just a clear description of cause and effect.

Although the author's trip was a turbulent one, its narration is quite a smooth and pleasant ride. I particularly appreciated the dynamic style. One moment we grudgingly wake up with him in a Tantric workshop in Gozo facing the unknown, and in an instant we are taken on a flashback in the past to then find ourselves back to the workshop again. A quite enjoyable read indeed. Highly recommended.
