And don't spare the broomsticks

Paula and I are going on a Treadwells' organised walk next week. Paula has been several times to the bookshop in Tavistock St (near the Theatre Royal) for talks on all aspect of folklore, mythology, paganism, hermeticism and the occult. I've only been a few times and so am known only as "Mr Paula" but I enjoyed the talks on the Anglian Witch Hunts and the alchemical engravings of Kunrath. It's well worth keeping an eye on if you're into that kind of thing.

So if Demons of Mesopotamia, Kundalini Tantra and the Godess Rising or Victorian Fairies are your cup of tea have a look here
