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:

GARY LACHMAN – LECTURES IN MELBOURNE

DOCKLANDS

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.

WARRANWOOD

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”.

 

Spring Roundup

The latest in my Thinking Allowed interviews with Jeffrey Mishlove is up on You Tube. It’s on Hermes Trismegistus and the Hermetic Tradition and you can find it here.

Later this month – April – I’ll be speaking on politics and the occult and punk rock, of all things, at FILBo, the international literary festival held in Bogota. This will be about as south of the border as I’ve ever got, so far at least.

On May 5, I’ll be putting everyone half asleep at Brompton Cemetery, in West London, going on and on about hypnagogia, that strange state in between sleeping and waking, and talking a bit about my experiences with precognitive dreams. I know you knew that already but please, give me a break.

On May 23 I’ll be talking about Rudolf Steiner at the Goldfinger House – not the Bond villain but the architect – in London’s leafy Hampstead.

On June 22 I’ll be talking about John Michell, of A View Over Glastonbury fame, and his place in the counter culture of the 1960s, at the John Michell Symposium held by the Temenos Academy at the Art Worker’s Guild in London.

On July 10 I’ll be talking about Alesiter Crowley on Drugs – yes, when wasn’t he? – at the Century Club in London’s still fashionable West End.

Further down the road, on October 4-6, I’ll talking about the Lost Knowledge of the Imagination at the Omega Studios, in Rhinebeck, NY, as part of their Real Magic weekend seminar, with Dean Radin, Alex and Allyson Grey, and Regina Meredith. It’s months away but places are going fast so if you’re interested, I suggest you reserve a seat now.

On October 11-13 I’ll be taking part in Black Flame 2019, the esoteric conference held in Montreal. I’m sharing the bill with some impressive speakers and the event should prove equally so.

Following Black Flame, I am trying to arrange some talks in NYC. Discussion is ongoing and I’ll post details as soon as they emerge.

Finally, my new book, The Third Way: History, Apocalypse, and the Return of Holy Russia is due to be published by Inner Traditions sometime early 2020.

There you go.
