This Month's Moot - is in the Red Lion for 4pm!
Sunday, 23 October 2011
The following communication was sent to us by KaosCrow:
"This talk and discussion follows on from last Septembers Moot, 'Occult War for the New Aeon' in which we examined the many and various schools of thought and theories of impending Apocalypse and whether or not shadowy occult cartels manipulate human evolution.
Taking the conclusion that whatever the causes, or indeed whatever the 'truth' behind the scenes, we cannot escape the fact that civilisation stands on the brink of a collapse of monumental scale. Our symbol for that talk was Atu XVI, The Tower.
Over a year has passed and the world slips further toward disaster but from the ashes the phoenix can rise... If we've the will to change and to direct that change for humanities benefit.
We now take Atu XX, the Aeon, as our symbol as we examine how we can change and adapt our ideas and thinking in order to gestate a fundamental change in the direction of human evolution. Be under no illusions some of your deepest held beliefs will be challenged by this talk and if no-one walks away without at least some of their beliefs in tatters I will be dissapointed!
See you at the Red Lion at 4pm on Sunday the 6th of November - there will not be any Hot Dog Buns this time round.

Richard will be hosting this Sunday's (3/7/11) Avebury Moot (Red Lion at the usual time of 4pm). The Talk will be given by Richard's partner, Alda Gerchi, who will be coming along to give a talk and introduction to the subject of Intuitive Geomancy. Alda is Slovenian and has studied at the school of Marco Pogacnik in Slovenia. Marco has undertaken earth-healing and erected stone circles containing healing symbols (Cosmograms) in every corner of the globe, and Alda has been part of a number of significant stone circle projects with him.
Alda will be involved in a 2012 project to erect a stone-circle in London planned to coincide with the Olympics with the intention of ameliorating any disruptive energies associated with that event.
Many thanks Mooties

Greetings - The Moot is taking a spring break this month - it's first proper break for over 2 years :) People will still be gathering at the Red Lion, but we don't have the room booked. Feel free to turn up for a natter. It's Beltane of course so Avebury's gonna be busy with all sorts of goings on.

Greetings Mooties - this Month I'm delighted to confirm that Maria Wheatley and Busty Taylor are coming along to present their talk... Redicovering the Avebury Henge and the Earth Force. For the full low down click HERE - all the details are on last month's post. Circumstances meant that they couldn't make it last time.
Remember - we start at 4pm these days..
Also... something odd is happening in Swindon... check this out!
Does modern science have it’s roots in the occult?
Swindon Libraries will be playing host to bestselling authors Clive Prince and Lynn Picknett as they talk about their new book The Forbidden Universe.
Were the first scientists hermetic philosophers? What do these occult origins of modern science tell us about the universe today? The Forbidden Universe reveals the secret brotherhood that defined the world, and perhaps discovered the mind of God.
All the pioneers of science, from Copernicus to Newton via Galileo, were inspired by Hermeticism. Men such as Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Leibniz, Bacon, Kepler, Tycho Brahe – even Shakespeare – owed much of their achievements to basically occult beliefs – the hermetica.
In this fascinating study, Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince go in search of the Hermetic origins of modern science and prove that not everything is as it seems and that over the past 400 years there has been a secret agenda behind our search for truth. From the age of Leonardo da Vinci, the influence of hermetic thinking upon the greatest minds in history has been hidden, a secret held by a forbidden brotherhood in search of the mind of God.
Join the authors at the Central Library on Thursday 14th April at 7:30pm.
Tickets are £2 (£1.50 concessions) and are available from the First Floor Help point at the Central library.

For the coming March moot I’m delighted to announce that Maria Wheatley will be joining us. Maria is author and co-author of a number of books including:
Avebury: Sun, Moon and Earth
Ancient Sites of Stonehenge
The Essential Dowsing Guide: 1
Stonehenge: An Investigation into Earth Energies
Maria also wrote Avebuy: Sun, Moon and Earth with another writer, Busty Taylor, who I’m also delighted to say will be joining us and presenting the first part of the talk. Busty will start things with an examination of Avebury’s solar alignments, followed by Maria who will talk to us about ley lines and earth energies.
Avebury is a regional power centre which holds many secrets. At specific times of the year the Sun and Moon interact with certain stones creating mysterious shadow lines and also linear lines of intense bright light, which were used in past rituals. Intriguingly, surrounding stone circles and mounds were aligned upon these light/yang and shadow/yin lines which can extend for miles and possibly inspired the ley line phenomena.
Powerful earth energies were also integrated into Avebury’s megalith architecture which are absorbed and transmitted by the standing stones – the electromagnetic frequencies of which were recently detected by sensitive electronic equipment. Further investigations revealed that when megalithic or earth energy is contained, by constructing certain stylised monuments, paraterrestrial activity causes mind-altering affects, time-lapses, and spirit manifestations. Maria describes which earthen and stone structures were designed to produce paraterrestrial affects and how to recognise and interact with the Earth Force within Avebury’s timeless landscape.
Fascinating stuff, I think you’ll agree, and I’m certainly looking forwards to enjoying March’s moot on Sunday 6th at the new time of 4pm at the Red Lion.
