A revised updated version of a previous presentation, Paul will salute Powys as supreme bardic magician who deserves to stand alongside Fortune, Bond, and Pole in the ranks of the Avalonians. He will discuss his intense and disturbing experiences with the titanic Glastonbury Romance suggestive of its status as a psychoactive text and how it may be worth pondering amidst the current Holy Thorn drama.

Mythology. Occult. Literature. Harmony and Horror. The Living Presence of the Past; Atargatis; William Blake and the Glastonbury Gnosis; and the just published Occult Battle of Britain.
