Jung at Heart and a Trip Down Under

Here is a link to my latest conversation with Jeffrey Mishlove. This time we take on Jung, and of course we can only scratch the surface.

On a different note, here is short notice for a trip down under. I’ll be in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia, in August, giving some talks. The idea of my heading there has been in the planning stage for quite some time, but it wasn’t until last month that it seemed it would really happen.

Here are the links for my talks in Sydney, on Dark Star Rising and Hypnagogia, the strange intermediary state of consciousness between sleeping and waking, with which many who attend my lectures are familiar… And here’s a link to a weekend devoted to A Secret History of Consciousness and Lost Knowledge of the Imagination.

And here is the information I have for my talks in Melbourne. Contact details are sadly missing but I’m working on getting them:



Saturday 3 August DOCKLANDS: Library at The Dock, Level 2, 107 Victoria Harbour Promenade, Cnr. Collins & Bourke Sts, VIC, 3008

10:00 – 11:30am – A LOOK INSIDE THE WORLD, our ancestors saw a living nature rather than a mechanical one. This vision informed Goethe’s view of the world and we can discover how to use this vision today.

2:00 – 3:30pm – A DIFFERENT KIND OF KNOWING, before reason, logic and “facts”, a knowing based on the total picture of reality prevailed. Throughout history there have been individuals who have combined both “facts” and the bigger picture.


Sunday 4 August WARRANWOOD: The Michael Centre, 37A Wellington Park Drive, VIC 3134,  VIC

 2:00pm – 4:00pm – THE CARETAKERS OF THE COSMOS Living Responsibly in an Unfinished World, looking at how ancient ideas about our place in the world can unite with those of some of the most important but little known sages of recent times to envision a future in which we “take care of the cosmos” by becoming “fully human”.

  1. Great news about the Melbourne gig. I will be there, but I hope we can catch up for a coffee or whatever as well. All the best, Barry

  2. I am booked in for all the Sydney gigs, Gary – hope you don’t think I am a stalker. I promise to sit quietly at the back 🙂
    I am so excited that you are coming.
    I wish I could organise for them to name a koala after you, as they did when Noel Coward came to Australia.

    1. Walter, very good to hear from you. I was going to tweet you about the talks, but I’ve been caught up with quite a bit of work. Excellent that you’ll be there. Please come up and say hello!

  3. Twas a pleasure to hear you speak in Melbourne Gary and to hear your cool cosmical synchronicities! I’m thrilled that your latest book is going to be released on the 5th of may, my birthday. I hope that you make it to beloved Byron Bay whilst you’re here and rock it out at the sacred lighthouse and crystal castle! I would love to see you write a book on the heroic Hypatia too. Wishing you an infinity of synchronicities and joy! Ally

    1. Hello Ally. Good to hear from you and thank you for making my Melbourne talks memorable. Funny, 5 May is the birthday of two of my closest friends. I get along with Taureans. Byron Bay will have to wait until my next trip but Hypatia rocks. All the best, Gary

  4. Sveiks Mr esoteric Awethor. I’m loving the 5th of May connection. May your 5th of May buddies also be blessed with every loving frequency that the benevolent universe can conjure! Your darling buds of May (literary forms included!) I am Taurean with an Aquarian moon, hence my quirky “out there” nature! Plus I was even birthed by a Dr Hart, sole first! I love breeching the rules, been centered in my heart of psychic truth and encouraging others to do the same, as we should all be self-sovereign souls. I even bought a stethoscope on my birthday many years ago and started listening to my own heart for hours at a time, connecting to my being of infinite possibility from all of the Galactic centers, freeing me from all earthy limitations and dogma like a good zen koan would, but even better. I even walk down the street advertising this sentiment proudly and the reverb from the peak hour traffic is particularly divine. I always found it quite ironic that others, many with lots of credentials after their name got a better squizz to the master tapes of my heart amp than me! I also do heart healings on people and become Dr Heart in feminine form, another alchemy ritual started on my birthday. Spiritually applied from this compassionate empath! Anyway Mr, feel free to astral travel back to Oz anytime. But when you are finally here in your physical form, I need to get a photo with your books sitting resplendently on your crown chakra Mr Headliner! 🙂 And perhaps you could do a palm reading on my Pleiadean psychic water intuitive hands? You have such an awesome sense of humour and a cool accent that would sound so swell on a guided meditation CD!
    Take care, Miss Heartliner herself 😉

    1. Hello Ally. That is some message to try to follow! I love the idea that you bought a stethoscope to listen to your heart. That sounds like something a surrealist poet would say. If I find myself heading back down under I will certainly let you know. And I’m not surprised you stop traffic. Thanks again for making my Melbourne experience particularly memorable. All the best!

  5. Cool! Glad I made you walk the Ally Literary Labyrinth! I hope there were some benevolent Allies guiding you on your Hero’s journey, providing you with water and shelter along the way. Consider yourself initiated into a more heartfull way of being if you aren’t already. 😉 The best way to convey a message I find is through a playfull tongue in cheek sense of humor and irony. Much more appealing than a proselyte standing on a street corner trying to convert the masses to some serious untruths and propaganda!
    And this coming from the lass whose Latvian relatives lived though some seriously heartbreaking George Orwellian times, leading to Slave labor camps in Siberia. “The Baltic Way” of 1989 lives deeply in my heart, where an unbroken human chain of 2 million people joined hands in symbolic protest spanning all three Baltic states, setting in motion independence from communist rule as well as “the singing revolutions”. These are my kinda people!
    But I love been Surreal. Thank you Sir! The fine people of Melb often call me Frida Kahlo because of the elaborate Latvian flower crowns I wear. I am their serotonin. I love serving my community in this way for I am the Bohemian Raggle Taggle Gypsy O and it is my way of serving my spiritual truth and benevolence by applying it to others like a relay runner would by passing the baton!
    Anyway Gaz if you send me your email I will send you the Warranwood pics, or shall I blast them through your third eye? Ally

    1. Ally, you certainly are a personality. I’d love to see the pics. You can send them to gvlachman@gmail.com Frida Kahlo no less. And a sense of humour is the poor man’s – or woman’s – mystical experience. It’s pretty much the closest I come at least. G

      1. Thank you lovely. Pictures of an Exhibition coming right atcha, blasted through the ether! Al
