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!
