Southwick Community Centre, Southwick, West Sussex


Confirmed Speakers

Dr Brian Bates -

Brian Bates was Chairman of Psychology at Sussex University and a professor of psychology at the University of Brighton. But he found that his real interests rested on more mysterious material. He became fascinated by the spellcraft of ancient English magic documented at the British Museum. He wrote a novel called The Way of Wyrd which explored the shamanism of Anglo-Saxon England and how it changes our understanding of life. For fifteen years he ran an award-winning course in experiencing Shamanic Consciousness, also at Sussex, and he worked with actors on magical drama at The Royal Academy of Art. He thrives on first hand involvement in this world of wisdom, in which we can bring together research and experience to understand things more deeply. Healing, dreams, intuitive secrets of animals, Otherworld journeying, shapeshifting, Anglo-Saxon wizardry. It’s knowledge for all of us, and Brian invites us to share it with him….
