“So what’s it all about, then?”

“Oh, lots of things, like, duty and service, and honour, and love, and friendship, and devotion and good government, and bad…”

“But ultimately?”

“Ulitmately it’s about the need to balance polarity.”

“Is that an individual polarity or a collective polarity?”

“Somewhat inevitably, it is both the polarity of an individual psyche and the polarity of a collective state.”

“And erm, do we touch upon Matriarchy and Patriarchy at all?”

“Given that brief it would be very difficult not to.”

“And we seek balance in this sphere too?”

“But of course…”

“So, how come Aruru, the Mother-Goddess, gets to wear a delicate tiara of jewelled flowers,

while Anu, the Father-God, gets a plant pot plonked on his head?”

“It’s just the nature of things.”

Lord of the Deep – Workshop April 2019

The Silent Eye’s Spring workshop for 2019

*

The glories above were unamed.

The word for that world beneath, unuttered.

Source and time, unfettered, merged…

From the mingling waves-of-water came mud and slime.

Enshar and Kishar, twin halves of the globe, shone out of them.

Lord of the Deep: The quest for Immortality

26-28 April, 2019 – Great Hucklow, Derbyshire

  1. I truly wish I could be there for these events are a wonderful way to experience the philosophy, the psychology, the spirituality, the history, and all sorts of wonderful things that you will likely never experience anywhere else. I know that the reading of the oldest piece of literature found, the story of Gilgamesh, made a huge impact on my life. It covers all the aspect of man and the Gods – good and evil, and how we are a living aspect of the One. It is a truly amazing complex story full of wisdom considering that it is the oldest piece of literature ever found.

    After reading the story, I could not stop thinking about what I had read and the implications for those of us in the contemporary world. I will likely never forget the lessons that I learned from this story. I know how popular these events are and how much more you will get out of it than you bargained for. It is definitely one of my top goals to be able to attend one of these wonderful events in person.
