AN ESOTERIC QUEST in the WESTERN ISLES OF SCOTLAND Megalithic, Norse and Hermetic Culture in the Celtic World
Stornoway, the Outer Hebrides August 22–27, 2017
Scotland is one of the most esoterically rich countries on earth. The rock of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides is some of the oldest anywhere, and the island is dotted with enigmatic megalithic sites, most famously Callanish, that echo an ancient culture. Lewis is also a place inhabited by Picts, Scots and Vikings, where Gaelic is still spoken.
This year’s Esoteric Quest — the 13th in a series stretching back to 1995 on Western spiritual traditions — will continue our theme from our 2016 Quest in Iceland of exploring the mysteries of the North. This time we will encounter the meeting of Celtic and Norse cultures, experience the mystical beauty of these islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, and go deeply into Scotland’s more recent esoteric traditions, from alchemy to Freemasonry. Our home base will be Lews Castle, a 19th century estate recently restored to perfect condition.
We invite you to join us on this Quest and participate in one of the most highly regarded series to be found anywhere on the planet on the half-forgotten spiritual history of the West.
PRE- & POST-CONFERENCE JOURNEYS
* Callanish, Scotland * Findhorn, Scotland * Westfjords, Iceland
There will be a pre-conference day visiting the megalithic sites on Lewis and Harris, and two Post-Conference Journeys: one to the celebrated eco-village and spiritual community of Findhorn, followed by three days on the most sacred of all Scottish islands, Iona. The other will return to the expansive grandeur of the Westfjords of Iceland, a realm of cosmic ocean vistas, ever present rushing waterfalls, and immense, profound silence.
The Esoteric Quest Open House Join us on Friday, March 3, 7:30pm for a free overview of the upcoming Quest.
