This presentation was inspired by Blake in Avalon: this year’s magnificent William Blake Festival here in Glastonbury.
“I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
Till we have built Jerusalem,
in England’s green and pleasant land.”
The manifestation of the New or Heavenly Jerusalem is the climax of the Christian vision as laid down in the Holy Bible. It has inspired mystics, poets, kings, and queens throughout the centuries and has been interpreted as a prophecy of a golden age to come.
Tonight we will explore the esoteric meaning of this enigmatic climactic vision, using it as a key to reveal the ancient wisdom teachings that are “hidden in plain sight” in the Holy Bible. We will take a trip through time and space, covering elements of sacred geometry, gematria, ancient druidry, and shamanism, myth and starlore, gnosticism, alchemy, stone circles, and more. This is ancient wisdom restored, as we unveil the Heavenly Jerusalem! Special reference will be made to the work of some great Avalonians, as well as the significance of this vision in both Glastonbury and Norse mythos, as well as the new age.
“Would to God that all the Lord’s people were prophets”
