Abraxas, Jung, & his Glastonbury Visit


The story of why I recited some of Jung’s Seven Sermons to the Dead in the crypt chapel of Joseph of Arimathea in Glastonbury Abbey on New Years’ Day 2003 and the synchronicity tsunami that unleashed is a potent case study that blurs boundaries in multiple categories. I will discuss Abraxas, a waft of Glastonbury medieval heresy, John Cowper Powys, my discovery of the little-known 1939 Jung West-Country jaunt, and an astonishing 80-year time-lapse addendum that pulled in the Cosmic Trigger crew and their wild Liverpool-Switzerland odyssey.  1 hour 12 mins.
