Some fiction is charged with strange inspiration so potent it can function as magic that manifests in the external world. To what extent its creators are fully conscious of this is not always clear. In this presentation Paul will tell powerful stories from his new book Atargatis. It will include Robin of Sherwood, Twin Peaks, and the deliberately magical fiction, The Sea Priestess of Dion Fortune.
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.
