JOHN MICHELL MEMORIAL LECTURE
London, Friday 28 November 2014
Philip Carr-Gomm: “High Weirdness & the Function of the Obscure in the Western Esoteric Tradition”
The Western Esoteric Tradition, and the landscape of magic, mysticism and religion within which it lies, is replete with curiosities, and even pathologies, that make its exploration often amusing but sometimes unsettling. Why is so much of esotericism so weird and obscure? John Michell loved the eccentric, and this talk aims to be both entertaining and sobering, at turns elucidating and obfuscatory. Examples of High Weirdness from the audience will be welcome.
Philip Carr-Gomm trained with Ross Nichols, the founder of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, and has been leading the Order for over twenty years.
He is a writer, psychologist and lecturer.

THIRD ANNUAL JOHN MICHELL MEMORIAL TALK
Glastonbury, 18-19 May 2013
Confirmed speaker: Michael Glickman
A leading lecturer, researcher and commentator, Michael Glickman has long occupied a central space at the heart of debate on the crop circle phenomenon. A former architect and teacher, he is now a renowned and inspirational speaker and writer. His work on the geometry and interpretation of the crop circles has spanned over 20 years.
Michael has written several regular columns on the crop circles over his career, both in print and on the internet. His column for The Cerealogist magazine, when John Michell was editor in the early 1990s, was called “New Swirled Order”. “Wheat from the Chaff” is its latest incarnation. He has written seven books including Crop Circles (published by Wooden Books). Cornography, a selection of his former column writing, was published in 2007 while his latest book Crop Circles: the Bones of God was published in 2009.
