Two Burials and a Battle - King Arthur in Glastonbury

  Speaker: Don Carlton

A devastating article by David Dumville in 1977, in which he pointed out that the evidence that would enable us to write genuine or authentic history about King Arthur does not exist, brought serious academic study of the historic King Arthur to an end. Dumville urged historians to stop writing about Arthur and, above all, to exclude him from the titles of their books. Academic study thereafter concentrated on the reception of Arthur, how he has come down to us as a literary figure.

Don Carleton's new book Arthur Warrior and King is therefore perhaps the first study of Arthur of history for more than two generations. Carleton says the way to find the Arthur of history is to forget everything you thought you knew about him. Then you read the existing material closely and see also what additional information there is in forgotten accounts in Wales, Scotland and Ireland and in the small unregarded details in the legends and the romances. The figure of Arthur which emerges from that scrutiny is new and may be, to some people, uncongenial. He is certainly different and he seems to be historical.

In this talk, Don Carleton concentrates mainly on King Arthur in Glastonbury. 'I have found this new historical picture of the king and warrior', he says, 'because I started with no theory about Arthur. I still do not have a theory about him. What I have is some observations about him and Glastonbury is central to those ideas. I look forward to putting this new Arthur before the Wessex Research Group'

11-10-18 Electrosensitivity
  Speaker: Dr Andrew Tresidder
  This talk aims to look at what ES is, and to understand symptoms, sources and solutions. increasing numbers of people are affected by the environmental pollution of Radiofrequency Signals and Electromagnetic fields, but dont always make the connection. If ants, birds and bees are affected, then why shouldnt humans be? Some sensitive people are particularly affected. Electromagnetic hygiene involves recognising the issue and doing something about it. Industry will help, when the mistaken presumption of no harm; becomes obvious, and when the ICNIRP derived safety limits, which ONLY apply 6 minute tissue heating limits, and ignore increasing evidence of biological effects. Dr Andrew Tresidder, GP and Educator, aims to cover the main issues and answer questions
13-09-18 The Mysteries of the Tarot
  Speaker: Peter Mills
  To many people, the Tarot cards are nothing but a fortune-telling device. However, there is a great deal more to these occult tools. There is a coherence of image within the traditional Major Tarot cards which can be followed in detail through the centuries. It is possible to trace the Tarot designs back into the depths of history. In fact, it is quite possible that the Tarot actually originated in Ancient Egypt. The ancient Egyptians wrote their messages in an alphabet of pictures (hieroglyphics) and this is quite possibly the original source of the Tarot images, updated and re-rendered over the centuries by artists and designers who illustrated their versions in the styles of their own times, but adhering to the original basic symbolism. Today, in the right hands, the Tarot cards can be ancient stereotypes of life's conditions and situations and, if used properly, these occult tools can offer help and guidance in difficult circumstances.

Peter Mills, who is nearly 70 and has written several books on various occult matters will discuss these claims and images and demonstrate the proper use and application of the Tarot cards. He has been a professional Tarot card reader for 45 years and a
Wiccan since 1968
28-11-17 What Are the Western Mysteries
  Speaker: James North

Sometimes spiritual teachings focus on general and universal truths in a one sided way. But in the 21st Century it is important to remember and revitalise the spirit of the local. This includes knowledge of power places, traditional folklore and distinct spiritual traditions.

This talk will examine the re-emerging concept of British Mysteries with reference to three Avalonian teachers - Dion Fortune, Wesley Tudor Pole and Ronald Heaver. It will show the connection of their ideas with the Matter of Britain, the corpus of Arthurian and Grail lore. We will also consider how to separate the concept of British Mysteries from its racialist and imperialist distortions. This requires putting the role of Avalon and Britain in a wider context, by examining the current role of the Western Mystery Tradition and the rewakening of the Celtic and Hibernian Mysteries. We will close by looking at practical ways we can engage with the Sacred Landscape in Britain and elsewhere, through connecting with the landscape and its elemental energies.James North is an Initiate of the Western Mystery Tradition and has 20 years experience as a student and teacher in several Hermetic traditions. His current focus is on how Dion Fortunes work may be taken forward in the 21st Century

10-10-17 Approaching the Angelic Hierarchies
  Speaker: James North

The doctrine of the angelic hierarchies has always been central to the Western Esoteric Tradition. But although the subject of angels has become fashionable in recent years, the traditional teachings are not often discussed and studied. This talk gives an outline of the great Western teachings about the angels, especially in the Jewish Kabbalah, Esoteric Christianity and Hermeticism. We will discuss the different ways humans have encountered angels through mysticism, magic and vision, and explore their nature and connection with our daily lives. We will conclude with a short introduction to the practical methods of experiencing and cooperating with angelic beings, through meditation and ritual

12-09-17 Jose Arguelles and the Harmonic Convergence
  Speaker: Paul Weston
It is 30 years since the Harmonic Convergence, the New Age Woodstock, created by Jose Arguelles, a visionary professor of art history, who had become immersed in the mysteries of the Mayan calendar. Paul will talk about Arguelles life and the many inspirations for the event that range from Martin Luther King to Tibetan Buddhism, Nicholas Roerich, and the Face on Mars!
11-07-17 Key to Qabalah and the Western Mysteries
  Speaker: James North
Whether you aspire to be a practical magician, a Qabalist or just want to understand how the Machinery of the Universe works, Hermetic philosophy is the key. For hundreds of years, the great mystics and occultists of the West studied the Hermetic tradition and passed it down from generation to generation. Unfortunately, with the mass popularisation of the occult in the 20th Century, the central principles of Hermeticism were largely lost. In the New Age, there is a lot of talk about the nature of Angels and how to work with them, Masters, Alchemy and so on. But lacking a solid foundation in the tradition, much of it is insubstantial and doesnt lead to durable positive changes in peoples understanding or outer life. This talk gives a solid introduction to the principles of Hermetic Philosophy, and how to apply them on your spiritual path. James is a student and teacher in the Western Mystery Tradition with many years experience of Hermeticism and Qabalah
13-06-17 Is Your Life Choreographed? Exploring Soul Resonances in Time and Space
  Speaker: Mark Herbert

Join Mark and allow him to demonstrate how these novel concepts can enable more informed decisions in the future by mapping soul resonances from the past!


The Ancient and Occult Secrets of Menoroth

  Speaker: Peter Mills
A "lost book" printed in 1805 has been rediscovered! This book, Artes Magicae or the Ancient & Occult Secrets of the Menoroth by John Parkins presents an incredible and fascinating new understanding of the Qabbalah and enlarges the Qabbalistic concept beyond all bounderies, taking Qabbalism into new and Biblical dimensions. It has been believed for 2 centuries that no copy of Parkin's astonishing book remained. Its existence was known merely from an entry in a catalogue of the famous London booksellers Lackington Allen & Co. which ceased trading about 1840. However, a ragged, fragile and fragmented edition came to light and Mr. Mills has restored the text for publication by Marsh Lane Press. The esoteric knowledge within this lost book simply boggles the imagination and even transforms the Old Testament into a set of coded occult instructions!

The Elongated Skulls of Stonehenge

  Speaker: Maria Wheatley
  Stonehenge once had a neolithic high queen. She shared her looks of a long skull with the priesthood of malta and Egypt. Her people created some of the largest monuments in the prehistoric landscape some if which have strange earth energies. The Queen and her people were murdered and their kind was wiped out. Maria's recent discovery has changed our understanding of the people who created the first British megalitic stone temples. Their story reads like an Agatha Christie novel but fact is often far stranger than fiction. The people of prehistory are hardly ever mentioned. Maria tracked the remains of the stonehenge queen and will show you what her skull looked like and her long lost history will be revealed. She is one of our ancestors and should be remembered

Dartmoor Mindscapes

  Speaker: Peter Knight
  This presentation covers the author's research, including profound personal experiences, based on 'cognitive archaeology'. He uncovers the intricate relationships between tor outcrops and other natural features, with stone circles, stone rows, cairns and megaliths. Peter proposes how our prehistoric ancestors interacted with notable outcrops, simulacra, rock basins and propped stones; the author gets inside the minds of prehistoric people and their shamans, to walk their Dreamtime. We are invited to perceive landscapes as interfaces, saturated with cultural and mythic memory. Peter suggests ways to walk and interact with the landscape in a more meaningful and mindful way today, to develop deeper connections with the sacred and ancient mindscapes of Dartmoor.

Conversations with Angels, Nature Spirits and Elementals

  Speaker: William Bloom
  Since his teens William has been exploring how to understand, communicate and cooperate with the parallel dimension of the angelic and elemental world. In this evening's talk he will share openly about his personal experiences and learning. Dr William Bloom is one of the UK's leading educators in the field of spirituality and health. His many books include the classic 'Working with Angels'.

Rudolf Steiner and the Rebirth of Tintagel

  Speaker: Paul Weston
  Tintagel became a major Arthurian tourist attraction in the nineteenth century, primarily due to the success of Tennyson's poetry which had featured it as the supposed birthplace of the king. Since then, regardless of the arguments of historians and cynics, it has established itself alongside Glastonbury as a mythic locale. Rudolf Steiner visited Tintagel in 1924. He supposedly saw with clairvoyant vision that the place had been an ancient mystery cult centre. The mysteries of Arthur were reviving during the new age of the rulership of Archangel Michael. Paul will look at Tintagel from a mystic perspective that takes in Tennyson and Steiner and try and see if real history in any way harmonises with that vision

The Terrestrial Alignments of Katherine Maltwood and Dion Fortune

  Speaker: Yuri Leitch
  Occult intrigues of the 1930's revealed by two Glastonbury women; Publishing books at the same time. Great alignments across the land; places of power; the lines of Michael.

The Earth is a Womb of Angels

  Speaker: David Ash

David Ash will talk on the EARTH IS THE WOMB OF ANGELS. Based on his new books CONTINUOUS LIVING and THE VORTEX THEORY and the evidence of near death experiences he explains our soul destiny. From a life time of research as a spiritual scientist, David is convinced the purpose of our lives is to decide through the way we live whether we become an angel in the light with Life and Love, or an angel in the dark separated from Light, Love and Life. David says death is a delusion. It is not an end, but a beginning. Death is our birth as an angel!

David concludes with a Sacred Sabai Blessing accompanied by spiritual songs. The blessing is profound, providing a deep peace and connectedness to Spirit as a direct experience of the angelic realms of Love and Light.

David is author of:The Vortex: Key to Future Science (Gateway Books 1990), The New Science of the Spirit (College of Psychic Studies 1995), Activation for Ascension (Kima Global Publishing 1995) The New Physics of Consciousness & The Role of Evil in Human Evolution (Kima Global 2007), The Vortex Theory & Continuous Living (Kima Books 2015)

Ley Lines, Templars and Destiny Amid our England Landscape

  Speaker: Mark Herbert
  Is it possible for soul relationships to be expressed as precise geometrical alignments along etheric pathways over Earth's surface?

Stolen Images: Ancient Sites, Pagan Symbolism and Christianity

  Speaker: Peter Knight
  In this lecture international speaker and author Peter Knight shows how the church adopted and assimilated pre-Christian myths and symbols for its own use, to help promote its own agenda. Most Christian icons can be traced back to an older origin, and many churches were also sited on ancient holy places. The church also took over existing Pagan festivals and turned them into saint's days. This fascinating talk links Egyptian, Norse, Greek, Celtic and other cultures to Christianity

The New Spirituality

  Speaker: Dr Jacqueline Hobbs
  What exactly is the "new vibration"? Many of us are experiencing a much higher frequency; time going faster than ever before; feeling lighter; astonishing synchronicities; and going through intense personal change in very short periods. In this talk, I explore the shift away from ancient systems such as chakras, karma, past lives and enlightenment and systems in general towards claiming our own divinity and unlimited potential as human beings.

Shamanism, Carlos Castaneda, and the Invisible World

  Speaker: Gordon Strong
  Although specific to Siberia, the Shaman is an ancient figure, one who has an equivalent role in all tribal societies throughout the world.

Sef will take those attending, through the seven planetary Archangels - how and when to seek contact with them, and why an Angel is not the key to everything. By the end of the evening, every one present should have a way to begin working with these powerful forces

The Mystical Inner Life of Carl Jung

  Speaker: Gordon Strong
  Jung was a pioneer of psychoanalysis, at a time when the art was in its infancy. By suggesting that the imagery and symbolism of dreams was significant, Jung brought new understanding to the idea of the unconscious.

Although an academic with a strict religious upbringing, Jung readily embraced the mystical element in himself and others. He believed the inner life was as essential to the individual as the conscious world. Jung also promoted the concept of the anima and ‘animus', the male and female elements present in both sexes. A courageous, charismatic leader, much of Jung's own life seems paradoxical, often bizarre. By delving into personal and universal myth, he followed his own soul's journey. In this way he was able to provide emotional healing for all those he encountered

Angels, Archetypes and Nature Spirits

  Speaker: William Bloom

Throughout history and in all cultures we can find these mysterious beings. Are they real or imaginary? What do they mean for us today?

His books include The Endorphin Effect, Working with Angels and The Power of Modern Spirituality. He is founder of the Spiritual Companions Trust. www.williambloom.com

09-09-14 Aleister Crowley and the Loch Ness Monster
  Speaker: Paul Weston

A Typhonian entertainment. Aleister Crowley is the second most famous inhabitant of Loch Ness, having owned a home there in the early years of the last century. Occult folklore has suggested a link between his activities and the later return of the monster. This appears to be absurd but can lead into a fruitful surreal consideration featuring the magick of Crowley's Aeon of Horus in connection with monster hunting and UFOlogy. The lecture material is based on the chapter Loch Ness Leviathan and the Boleskine Kiblah in Paul's book Aleister Crowley and the Aeon of Horus.

15-07-14 The Belinus Line and the Fate of Albion
  Speakers: Gary Biltcliffe and Caroline Hoare

This secret alignment connects 6 cities including the ancient capitals of England and Scotland, geographical centres of power and many famous prehistoric complexes. Having a natural ability to detect the yin and yang dragon force in the land the authors followed this north/south equivalent to the St. Michael line and discovered key places of power where the dragon lines crossed. The authors will talk about the significance of these places of power and how they have an influence on the past and the future of Albion
10-06-14 J.R.R. Tolkien Teller of Tales, Man of Faith.
  Speaker: Gordon Strong
  Known as an Oxford academic and the man who wrote Lord of The Rings, Tolkien's personal life is rarely scrutinized as it appears to be so uneventful. His inner life, however, is endlessly fascinating and was not only the wellspring of his inspiration, but helped to create an endless landscape of the imagination. Tolkien's spiritual world is complex and sometimes contradictory. When examined there emerges a man of noble ideals and, above all, compassion. Gordon Strong has written numerous books on myth, legends and metaphysics. His Merlin - Master of Magick was a runaway success in the U.S. and his novels with both Medieval and Modern themes are very popular. As an authority on the Neolithic age and the Arthurian Tales, he has appeared in the National Geographic T.V. feature The Truth behind King Arthur.

22-04-14 What is Prana, Chi, and Living on Light? Does it really exist?
  Speaker: Jacqueline Hobbs (Oracle Girl)
  In this talk I will describe the history of, and academic research on, the energies named 'prana' and 'chi' more recently developed into ideas of 'living on light.' I will also give you a new perspective on and unique insights into the yogic traditions of India; the immortality cults and martial arts secrets of China; and the 'breatharian movement' of the New Age based on my own personal experience of slowly going food free, and my previous career as a martial artist. Was man always an eater and why do some sources reveal a dramatic switch away from the consumption of vital forces (prana), to the king as an eater of food (anna)? Is there a connection here with new and old stories about the 'annunaki'? What is the origin of the ancient concepts of prana and chi and are they still as relevant now, as then?
18-03-14 The King and the Land are One
  Speaker: Mark Taylor

The story of St Edmund Anglo Saxon King of East Anglia, martyr and England's first patron saint embodies many Arthurian and celtic concepts of sacred kingship.

On the Origins of Spirituality
