Tuesday Evening Lectures
Reclaiming Guinevere, Arthur, the Fae & the Round Table with Marguerite Rigoglioso – Tuesday 20th September 2022 – 6.30-8.00pm UK time – via Zoom – £10
Join Marguerite Rigoglioso, PhD, as she shares in-depth research regarding the hidden histories of the Court of Avalon: King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, Merlin, and more. These historical figures were real people who merged with the lineages of the Essenes and the Sidhe/Fae in service to humanity. These souls are fully accessible to us now, as spiritual role models, in this time of great tribulation, for our own spiritual awakening.
Transformation Through Turmoil with Steve Taylor, PhD – Tuesday 18th October 2022 – via Zoom – 6.30pm-8pm UK Time – £10
For 15 years, transpersonal psychologist Steve Taylor has been researching cases of spontaneous spiritual awakening that occur in the midst of intense psychological turmoil. In times of bereavement, serious illness, addiction, deep depression and intense stress a miraculous transformation sometimes occurs: the death of an old identity and the birth of a new, spiritually awakened self. In this presentation – based on his new book Extraordinary Awakenings – Steve provides some examples of these transformations from his research, and explains the reasons why they occur, including factors such as the dissolution of psychological attachments, acknowledgement and acceptance.
Gaia and the Tree of Life with Dr Stephan Harding – Tuesday 15th November 2022 via Zoom – 6.30-8.00pm UK Time – £10
The Tree of Life is an ancient image that comes to us from deep in psyche. The Tree image has taken many forms in many cultures down the ages and has aided many individuals to discover the deepest secrets of their true happiness which they realised as inseparable from the well-being and health of nature, of Gaia, of our living earth. The ancient Greek myths tell us that Gaia was the first born of primordial Chaos and that she in turn gave birth to the starry heavens and then to all the beings here on earth. She is the mother of us all, including the Tree of Life. In this talk we’ll explore whether myths and images of Gaia and The Tree of Life can in any way help us to solve our terrible contemporary global crisis.
The Interior Shores of Norse Mythology with Andreas Kornevall – Tuesday 17th January 2023 – via Zoom – 6.30pm-8pm UK Time – £10
Join Andreas Kornevall for an evening presentation of Northern Myth, Seidr, Ritual and Runes. Andreas will introduce us to the enchantments, practices, wonder tales and myths that form the mythical dreaming of Northern Europe – myths and fairytales that have shaped much of Great Britain and Northern Europe for centuries. Through these stories and myths, we will explore essential questions about wisdom, where can it be found today? Also what rituals and practices can we start to develop that bring us closer to reconciliation with each other and the landscape we live in, whether it is rural or urban? There will also be a presentation and discussion of the multi-soul idea in Northern folklore and how it relates to folk-magic.
