UFOlogical Interview with Zelia Edgar on Just Another Tin Foil Hat



Great to have a UFOlogical chat with Zelia Edgar of Just Another Tin Foil Hat. We covered the psychic questing roots with the 1974 Aveley abduction and 1976 Sunderland family case that feature in my Avalonian Aeon and Atargatis. and expanded out from there. I felt nostalgic recalling how I got into the work of John Keel and Jacques Vallee when I was in my twenties and it’s very encouraging to see people like Zelia enthusiastically devouring the classic works and pondering the high strangeness conundrums.

Crowley, Jung, Parsons, Gnostic Warrior Podcast





I very much enjoyed the recent opportunity to talk again about some of the core material in my book Aleister Crowley and the Aeon of Horus for the Gnostic Warrior podcast.

There are video lectures already posted of me talking about Jung’s mysterious Seven Sermons to the Dead episode, comparing it to Crowley’s reception of The Book of the Law.  My most viewed video dates from nearly five years ago and features my lecture on The Babalon Working at the Glastonbury Occult Conference.

Here I am talking about all of it together in the broad context of the idea of Gnostic revival and the conversation takes in aspects of our distinctly 2020 situation and what I’m up to at the moment so, even if you are familiar with the book and the videos relating to it, I’d like to think you might find this of interest.

Dion Fortune podcast inteview video



My book The Occult Battle of Britain was delivered to my home a year ago today. It’s excellent to note the symmetry of this video being posted in synch with that.

In the hours leading in the time of the full moon over the last weekend I had the chance to chat across the airwaves/ethers from Glastonbury to Steiner enthusiast Amanda Bradley in New Zealand.

We discussed the life and work of Dion Fortune. I lingered awhile on the big events of 1940 and how I made my own connections to them in the nineties. This included me discussing how the 1940 Glastonbury material was used by me on the night of Princess Diana’s funeral with the imagery adjusted for the occasion.

I also had a bit to say on Rudolf Steiner, his visit to Tintagel and Archangel Michael.

In conclusion I noted how intriguing it was to be making a Glastonbury New Zealand connection with such subject matter when Robert Felkin had launched a branch of the same magical order that Dion Fortune had joined in New Zealand.

Green Stone conference Michael Line video presentation




Here is a video of my presentation at the October 2019 Green Stone 40 conference.

The material is taken from my book The Michael Line, the Qabalah and the Tarot.

It deals with a leyline journey inspired by the potent ideas of landscape qabalah and tarot. These ideas were based on an earlier psychic questing episode from 1981 which is also explained here.
