The imagery and ideas featured in the Glastonbury Tor visualisations engaged in by Dion Fortune and her associates in the 1940 Magical Battle of Britain did not emerge from nowhere. They were a product of the rebirth of Glastonbury. The mood they were conceived in also reflected the beliefs concerning the spiritual forces at play during the previous war. In a special presentation for Dion Fortune’s birthday, Paul will discuss the Angels of Mons, the Jerusalem hymn and the Glastonbury Jesus stories from the vantage point of 1940. The strongest link between the two periods, Wellesley Tudor Pole’s Silent Minute, will also feature.
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; Glastonbury Psychogeography: History. Mythology. Occult. Literature. Harmony and Horror. The Living Presence of the Past; and Atargatis.
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.
