Drinking from the Haunted Well: A Victorian Fairy Tea Party

Oct 25, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

By popular demand, Stuart Südekum will be touring his lecture, “Drinking from the Haunted Well: A mystical exploration in the Fairy Land of A. E. Waite,” at some of NYC’s notable hubs of esoteric discourse. This talk was first debuted at Seattle Esoteric Book Conference.

This Saturday, Catland Books will host Mr. Südekum as he shakes the dust from the relatively unknown fairy stories and poetry of Golden Dawn alum Arthur Edward Waite.

A. E. Waite is commonly remembered for his long and technical tomes of scholarly mysticism. It might surprise many modern readers to learn that his body of work also contains a beautifully interwoven mythos of esoteric Romances, set in a visionary realm of fairies. Waite carried this secret kingdom in his heart throughout his life, even into his late, post-Golden Dawn work.

Stuart Südekum will serve as a mystical tour guide to this forgotten realm, exploring how Waite’s fiction, drama, and poetry can be used to better understand the challenging concepts we encounter in his “Holy Grail,” “Holy Kabbalah,” and other non-fiction works.

Delicious tea will be served. Admission is $15, or $7 to those who come dressed as a Victorian or a Fairy.
