I had a truly special Midsommar 2023 delivering a talk at the Theosophical Society in Wheaton, Illinois. The opportunity to put my focus specifically into gnosticism was a blessing on so many levels. Most of what we know came from sources who were hell-bent on ridiculing it. In fact all of the original literature was destroyed in the flames of witch-burners. We must both condemn and thank this ridicule for the preservation of these texts. The wisdom conveyed from the ashes only shines through thanks to people like Miguel Conner, Ivan Rosales, and the Theosophical Society.
