European Paganism, Spirituality and Anti-Imperialism w/ Christopher McIntosh
A Story Club: Global Cultures S1 E7
streamed live on FB from the US (San Francisco), India (Dehra Dun) and Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean, Thursdays 12pm EDT | 9am PDT | 9:30pm IST
What is the hidden history of European Paganism? What is it? What does it mean?
How has it survived centuries of Christian dominance, prejudice and hostility?
What are its connections to other cultures of the world, in particular wider Indo-European culture, and also the world that Europe colonised?
Is paganism a subculture of hippies and nonconformists that has no place in responsible, modern society?
Or are we actually unaware of the power of the European pagan tradition, its survivals – through Graeco-Roman culture, arts, science and philosophy; elite Secret Societies; and persisting European folk traditions – the way it has shaped the modern world, and may contribute to a more harmonious world?
Join me, Dr. Kirk Meighoo as we discuss with author Christopher McIntosh, author of several books on the subject of paganism, Secret Societies, esoteric traditions and nature-oriented belief systems, and former information officer with the United Nations Development Programme and UNESCO
