Huxley and Crowley. Goodbye to Berlin, Hello Sgt Pepper.

  Broadcast in Spirituality

Call in to speak with the host

A lecture presentation I will not be taking calls on. When Aldous Huxley and Aleister Crowley met for lunch in Berlin in 1930 the two great visionaries could never in their wildest imaginings have anticipated the events that would lead to their posthumous appearance together on the Beatles Sgt Pepper cover in 1967. From the backdrop to the movie Cabaret to Timothy Leary and the Human Be-In and the Summer of Love, here is a story of myth, ideas, and influences, taking in a whole host of cult figures and providing an introduction and context for the psychedelic era. Material drawn from my book Aleister Crowley and the Aeon of Horus.
