Come to our next  Symposium


with Caitlín Matthews

7.30 PM  24th September 2016

At The Assembly Rooms

In this relaxed evening gathering, Caitlín Matthews will talk about her life as a ritualist, writer and shamanic practitioner who walks between worlds. Drawing on her songs and poetry, she will explore how we pick up the contacts and inspirations about the many-layered spiritual path that we each follow.  These windows to other worlds are the invitations that lead us to explore the path ever more deeply; if we stick at it and actually visit, rather than just study, wonderful connections result.

Rasputin and the Goddess.

With Steven Ingman-Greer

25 August at 19:30–21:00 

in the Avalon Room,

2- 4 High Street, Glastonbury, BA6 9DU


Rasputin was part of an ancient Siberian Shamanistic Tradition which treated everything on earth as being alive with life and part of the body of the Great Mother. His cultural past is very Feminine-centric- a philosophical view that sees time move, not in a straight line, but in circles, and that includes everyone in a loving embrace. Even the view of the meaning and significance of death itself undergoes a radical shift in his world, centred as it is on the Divine Feminine. He taught his philosophy to the Imperial Family of Russia – and it very nearly revolutionised the world. Properly understood, the tradition he is a part of could change our world today – for the better.


Steven Ingman-Greer is a musician, author and poet, who has spent most of the last 35 years researching Russia’s last Imperial Family. His novel, “Lost Eagle”, about the life of Nicholas II’s daughter Tatiana was published by Top Hat Books in October 2013 and is one of a series of five about the children of Nicholas II and Rasputin. He was consultant to Channel 4 in their TV series “Masters of Darkness”, on Rasputin. His Poetry collection, Russian Snowflakes and his novel about Nicholas II’s daughter Anastasia, “Voice on the Wind” are due to be published in 2017. Please see his website for more information.
