Jay Dyer – Esoteric Hollywood: Sex, Cults and Symbols in Film Part Three

May 24, 2017

Jay Dyer 4

Jay Dyer discusses his book Esoteric Hollywood – Sex, Cults and Symbols in Film. This is a three part interview. Part one is here. Part two is here

(Stream / download audio at bottom of page)

Delving into the deep, dark and mysterious undertones hidden in blockbusters and cult classics alike, Esoteric Hollywood explores philosophy, religion, symbolism and geopolitics, and their connections to film. We probe the prevalence of cinematic propaganda and predictive programming in promoting an ignorant, apathetic, dumbed-down generation of compliant consumers concerned only with instant gratification, unable and unwilling to challenge authority or subvert the status quo. We break down some of our own personal film favourites and ask whether, in an era dominated by gaming and social media, movies are less influential on the youth of today than they were in the past.

We also reveal Hollywood’s covert links to the CIA, how the border between fantasy and reality continues to blur, and the history of profound truths being hidden in plain sight on the silver screen. And from the dystopian sci fi and gritty, hard-boiled thrillers prevalent in the 1970s to the airbrushed, CGI-infested aberrations of today, we examine the extent to which movie makers are, unwittingly or otherwise, laying before our very eyes a real-world future which draws closer frame by frame.

Thomas Sheridan – The Druid Code: Magic, Megaliths and Mythology Part Two

November 12, 2016

Thomas Sheridan 5

Thomas Sheridan discusses his book The Druid Code: Magic, Megaliths and Mythology. The Druid Code sets out to examine the wider concept of magic and mythology being utilised as an early form of social psychoanalysis by the druids, how magic theory developed from this, and how this evolution of ritual magic eventually made its way into folklore, witchcraft and Freemasonry. The Druid Code utilises mythology connected to sacred sites, developing a bidirectional conduit back through time, to reveal what took place in 2500BC – a shift in human consciousness that made humans what we are today. From Atlantis to alchemy, you will never see history in the same way again.

Mark Olly – Revealing the Green Man

August 3, 2016

Mark Olly

On a journey through myths and legends, magic and folklore, we explore the mystery of The Green Man. From the time of the Celts and Druids, the rise of the Roman Empire, the Anglo-Saxon annals, and the descent into the Dark Ages and beyond, we meet with Robin Hood, Herne the Hunter, King Arthur, and many other colourful characters along the way. It is a tale pregnant with arcane symbolism, cultish rites, the perennial wisdom of ‘as above – so below’, and the final revelation of the Earth’s eternal cycle of destruction and rebirth.

Bernardo Kastrup – Religion, Reality and The Meaning of Life: Part Two

June 30, 2016

Bernardo Kastrup - More Than Allegory 1

Bernardo Kastrup discusses his book More Than Allegory – On Religious Myth, Truth, and Belief. In a Universe seemingly devoid of meaning and purpose where matter is all that matters, our souls are at war with our intellects, and the consequences for life on Earth may yet prove disastrous. Maybe it is time for us to remember who we really are – both magician and audience, dreamer and dream, from a realm beyond language where time and space are illusions, and the very nature of truth itself may not be what it seems. We are the universe becoming aware of itself. We know what God cannot know.

J.M. Harrison – Humanity, Insanity, and the Ascent of the Soul

April 10, 2016

J.M. Harrison

Jonathan Harrison discusses his book You Are This: Awakening to the Living Presence of Your Soul. Whether step by step or in the wake of sudden shocks, increasing numbers of people are questioning the meaning of their lives and that of the world around them. As a result, some are even drawn to doubt their own sanity. But what at first might appear as a disastrous disintegration of daily life may in fact emerge as a revitalising re-birth; the dawning of a wider reality and a deeper sense of self infinitely more meaningful than the maze of matter-of-fact materialism through which so many of us have wandered for millennia.

Ken Elliott – Manifesting and the Mind-Matter Matrix

April 5, 2016

Ken Elliott

Ken Elliott discusses his book Manifesting 1 2 3. For many years, the concept of manifesting has inspired countless individuals striving to improve their lives. Always one of the most popular areas in the Mind, Body & Spirit section of bookshops, titles such as The Secret and literally thousands of similar publications offer tantalising glimpses of how The Law of Attraction and other ‘positive thinking’ practices can bring about profound changes in our being. For millions, sadly, the result has been little more than disappointment and frustration as, despite months or even years of wish lists, vision boards and workshops, their hopes and dreams somehow fail to materialize. So is there, after all, real substance to any of this? Or is it merely New Age snake oil peddled to the lost and alone?
