Dr. Leonard George has always been drawn to the esoteric—to experiences that hint of something beyond. For the summer of 2017, he received a trio of invitations to speak about esoteric matters: at the Mongolian Academy of Sciences in Ulaan Baatar; at the Lily Dale Assembly of Spiritualists in New York; and at a convention of esotericists in Lews Castle, Scotland. Along the way he witnessed tantric rituals and shamanic dances, talked with mediums and meditators, roamed fairy haunts and stone circles older than the pyramids, and enjoyed fine scotch whisky. In this presentation, he will share impressions and images from his summer’s quest.

These FREE presentations are co-sponsored by Capilano University in partnership with North Vancouver District Public Library, North Vancouver City Library, West Vancouver Memorial Library, Burnaby Public Library, and Gibsons & District Public Library. 

This event is free, but space is limited. Early arrival is highly recommended.
