This talk is from an event hosted at osmos, Berlin, on 22 January 2020. The same topic which I presented at SAND 2019.
The signs are there. They’ve been there for thousands of years. In this talk I’ll take you through a personal journey of my “Hero’s Return” from the darkness of depression and psychosis, to a world of magic and mysticism.
As above, so below; as the Hermetics proposed, I’ll argue why this individual awakening process is being mirrored on the global scale. I’ll illustrate how the process of alchemising existential despair, or spiritual awakening, is unfolding across the world.
From the Mayans, to Carl Jung, Vedanta, Astrology, predictions from some of the world’s greatest thinkers are leading us to what Teilhard de Chardin referred to as the Omega Point, the divine harmony of the metaphysical and the material, and how quantum physics is catalysing our global understanding on our non-dual nature.
In the early 1900s, sociologist Max Weber bemoaned the age of disenchantment, the de-magic-ation of our world and the mysterious within and without. We killed God, according to Nietzsche, but thanks to advances in science and the crumbling of institutionalised religion, and increase is esoteric practice, we’re on the cusp of an unfathomable shift in consciousness.
The sacred union of spirit and the physical is happening. Our relationship with the world, with ourselves, and with each other, will be enriched beyond comprehension. It’s written in the stars.
Welcome to the return of magic. Welcome to the age of Re-Enchantment.
