THIS FRIDAY 22nd February 2013
THE BLESSED ISLES OF BRITAIN
Sarah will recount some of her experiences on pilgrimage within the British Isles which connect with the triple zodiac of the 'British Isles' Britain (England and Wales), Ireland and Scotland and the main chakra system which connects these three lands and their heart centres. She will also consider the myth of Europa and the Bull, the overlighting myth connecting the British Isles with mainland Europe, which provides a key to understanding the role of Europe in the world. Finally, she will look at pilgrimage as a way of healing and gaining knowledge, initiation and a wider understanding of nature.
Sarah Dawkins has been involved with pilgrimages since the inception of the Gatekeeper Trust in 1980. With her husband Peter she has widely travelled within the British Isles and Europe studying myths and the stories that arise out of the energy and patterns of the landscape. Sarah delights in celebrating the solar festivals through song, dance and fire ceremonies. Sarah organises pilgrimages and workshops within the Zoence Academy.(Zoence means Pathway of the Soul)

THE HUMAN HEAD IN RELIGIOUS AND MAGICAL THOUGHT
Is the head the seat of the soul? Or just an emblem representing the individual life-force? The human head and the tête coupée, or severed head, has been a key image around which a variety of concepts have constellated in religious and magical thought from the earliest days of human history. John Billingsley traces the recurrence of the motif through history, legend and other lore, and untangles a consistent implication of meaning that may still be active today.
John Billingsley is the author of A Stony Gaze: Investigating Celtic and other stone heads (Capall Bann, 1998) and several books on folklore and related topics in his home county of West Yorkshire. He is also the editor of Northern Earth magazine.

The Annual Robert Cowley Memorial Lecture
The public is warmly welcomed to attend this lecture
THE REALITY OF WOLFRAM VAN ESCHENBACH'S PARZIVAL AND THE GRAIL MYSTERIES OF ANTIQUITY
Who was 'Kyot,' referred to by both Chrétien de Troyes and Wolfram von Eschenbach, how did he discover the Grail Story from 'Flegetanis' being thus able to form a bridge between the original Grail Mysteries and the time in which he was living, apparently parallel with the life-span of an actual 'Parzival' individual in the Ninth Century? Sylvia Francke will pick up glimmers of insight which seem to fit into a vast canvas of precisely dated events and exact locations that point to 'Parzival' as real-life Drama, stretching across the breadth of Ninth Century Europe tracing a Rosicrucian thread from Ancient Chaldea to the 20th and 21st centuries.
Sylvia Francke is an Anthroposophist and the author of The Tree of Life and the Holy Grail. She is a member of the RILKO council and of the council of the Francis Bacon Society.
