PRC Talk ‘The Passing of the Flame – Dion Fortune, W.E. Butler & the Way of High Magic’ with Ian Rees
A series of 8 themed but standalone talks taking the major themes of Dion Fortune’s work and exploring them as expressed through the work of W.E. Butler and Tom Oloman. The introductory talk to the series considers the passing of the flame from Dion Fortune to Ernest (W E) Butler, Tom Oloman and finally to Ian Rees. It will explore the nature of the Tree of Life as Rosetta Stone translating between inner and outer experience. It will consider also the fundamentals of Qabalistic High Magic and the Inner Teacher behind the work.
Throughout history and in all cultures we can find these mysterious beings. Are they real or imaginary? What do they mean for us today? William will present you with an inspiring perspective that is good for you and good for the planet.
In the evening the tower on top of Glastonbury Tor will be lit up in the bluish green colour of teal to mark Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day. It is the latest addition to other buildings and monuments throughout the world which will be similarly illuminated in the teal colour associated with the disease. See the website for a list of places worldwide to be illuminated.
The highlight for us is always the Sheep & Alpaca Run, where sheep are herded down Glastonbury High Street and anything can happen along the way! The ‘Run’ opens the festival at 10.00am on Saturday 4th – but this time with the added excitement that they will be driven through the George & Pilgrims coaching entrance as in times past!
If you have pain, discomfort, wounds of body, emotions or mind and are in need of healing, come to our special Goddess Temple Ceremonial Healing Day to receive healing and blessings of the Lady of Avalon from Temple Healers, Priestesses and Melissas.
Discover how you can play your part in helping the Mother Earth and in bringing about a shift in global consciousness – the threshold of a new dawn for humanity.
This talk explores the world of the mind and magic. Parapsychology is the scientific investigation of the tools of magic, the psychic ability of our minds and the psychology of states of mind conducive to the practice of the psychic arts for healing, clairvoyance, divination, ritual, etc. Parapsychology seems to be uncovering the basic root elements of all religions and beliefs -The Perennial Philosophy.
Tim will be showing how to gently anchor our twelve chakra system, and smooth our pathway during these fast moving times.
Session 1: ‘Glastonbury & Alchemy – The Search for the Red Powder’.
What actually is alchemy? ‘An Alchemical Journey’ is a series of 6 stand alone themed talks that will introduce us to this fascinating subject. In this first talk James begins with the story of John Dee’s scryer Edward Kelley, who claimed to have discovered a mysterious red powder in the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, through which he later made alchemical gold. What did the monks know of alchemy and what light do the secrets of alchemy shed on the mysteries of Glastonbury itself?
