Paul will discuss the life and work of the enigmatic magus in the context of the search for the possible sources of his system.
This expansive odyssey will include the work of PD Ouspensky, JG Bennett, and Idries Shah, covering diverse historical topics ranging from Sufism, Babylon, the Yezidis, Gothic Cathedrals, medieval witchcraft, and ‘pre-sand Egypt’.
The material is presented in the full awareness of its contentiousness with the intention to set in motion ways of thinking that might not otherwise be engaged.
