A special event for the anniversary of the death of mystical artist explorer Nicholas Roerich who quested in search of Shambhala. His concept of Art for Peace inspired an international pact that influenced Jose Arguelles. His unique odyssey took him from helping to create the legendary Rite of Spring ballet to journeys into Central Asia. Paul will talk about his expansive life and put it into a wider context of the esoteric and political history of the time. The event will, of course, include visuals of his numinous paintings.
Paul Weston is the author of The Michael Line, the Qabalah and the Tarot; Mysterium Artorius; Aleister Crowley and the Aeon of Horus; Avalonian Aeon; The Glastonbury Zodiac and Earth Mysteries UFOlogy; and Glastonbury Psychogeography: History. Mythology. Occult. Literature. Harmony and Horror. The Living Presence of the Past.
Having majored in Comparative Religion for a Combined Arts degree, Paul went on to work for the Scientology-influenced Institute of Hypnosis and Parapsychology. He eventually became completely absorbed into the Glastonbury matrix and was fortunate to be closely involved in the Psychic Questing work of Andrew Collins. A frequent lecturer, his other main influences and inspirations include Colin Wilson, Dion Fortune, Reiki, Mother Meera, the Fellowship of Isis, Adi Da, John Cowper Powys, Osho, Psychogeography, Gurdjieff, Anthony Robbins, and UFOlogy. He affirms the 2012 gnosis.
