The Glastonbury Enigma

A talk about the seminal figures of Glastonbury esoteric side.

This talk will examine the patterns of changing fate that have characterised the life histories of people who have involved themselves with Glastonbury over the years, some better known names include Frederick Bligh Bond, Wellesley Tudor Pole, Benjamin Fearnley Carlisle and Anthony Roberts. It will also look at the background to these strange twists and turns of fortune.
The Isle of Avalon represents a potent melting pot of myths, legends and traditions, and is a place where the mundane world walks easily into a parallel, magical realm. Part of its power and mystery lies within the landscape itself. In this heady climate, earth-based phenomena and mythical constructs, sometimes largely devoid of historical or scientific validation, become tangible, liveable and 'real'. Complex metaphysical strands have coalesced at Glastonbury to create an unpredictable place-spirit with a life of its own.

Jack Gale is a frequent workshop leader and speaker at esoteric meetings and conferences. He is also the author of four books: Other Meridians, Another Greenwich and Goddesses, Guardians and Groves, both about the sacred landscape of his native Greenwich, Magic for the Next Thousand Years and The Circle and the Square, a factual psychic-questing narrative focussing on Glastonbury.
