Join us for this fun and fascinating look at the supernatural world, hidden in plain sight! In the Edgar Cayce readings and in many spiritual and folkloric traditions, there is an “invisible world” alive with beings that are not completely enmeshed in the physical world. These fairies, elves, sprites, gnomes—and yes, even leprechauns—are described as magical beings of diminutive human form with unique abilities and purposes.
Cayce indicated these beings could be perceived using the same psychic senses that allow us to feel the presence of our angels and guides! Today’s popular media is filled with these types of beings, perhaps demonstrating a sense of intuitive imagination awakening in our culture and ourselves. Ancient mysticism expert John Van Auken explores this hidden realm and it’s many inhabitants and shares what we can learn from these unique beings of legend and lore. You’ll also take a look at the story behind the legend of St. Patrick and the meaning of sacred Pict and Celt images and symbols such as the Z-rod, Double Disc, Celtic Cross, Spiral, and Celtic Knot.
Moderated by Cara Blume.
