In the latest of his series of talks and teaching through storytelling, Hugh le Prevost casts his gaze upon Middle Earth. The world created by J R Tolkien. In The Silmarillion Tolkein maps the vast history of Middle Earth, it’s characters, it’s landscape and it’s dimensions.
For anyone who has ever entered into these realms via The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings Trilogy, Hugh takes this a stage further, suggesting that Tolkien had a profound understanding of the ages of time. We will explore how the ideas in his novels relate to Druidry and are of interest for all who have an esoteric love of the land. The past lays roots for the future and in understanding Tolkein’s characters, including his four wizard archetypes, we discover Tolkien’s ability to look back through the veil and channel a world that through our myths and legends is reborn in our imagination – and beyond!
Born in Guernsey, Hugh le Prevost was inspired to seek the truth, becoming a Lay Minister at an early age and pursuing the practice and teachings of this for many years until, inspired by the philosophy and teachings of Christian Rozenkreuz, he was drawn to travel and the exploration of sacred sites around the world and the wide study of mystical teachings.
Hugh has lived in Glastonbury for 19 years and he continues to lecture and to pursue his studies with appreciation of the rich cultural heritage that Britain has to offer.
Venue: Glastonbury Town Hall. £6 (£5 concs.) on the door including refreshments.
