Glastonbury 2012: Creation Myths and Eternal Return.

My public 2012 programme commences with a lecture for the Glastonbury Pilgrim Reception Centre on Tuesday Jan 10th. £5.00 (includes refreshments).
At the end of a global time cycle, renewal is indicated. Many traditional cultures retold and acted out their creation myths during New Year festivities. I will look at Glastonbury and 2012 from the perspective of the great theorist of comparative religion, Mircea Eliade.
This presentation will not feature lizard aliens, the Illuminati, pole shifts, or any channeling from dolphins.
