Walker Talks!
Walker Brents III
on the alchemical nature
of Goethe’s
The Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily

Master storyteller, able interlocutor of literary ancestors, Walker Brents III delves into Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s fairy tale, groping in its lessons to get inside what it teaches, exploring the formative affinity he senses in it to the way consciousness actually goes along, seeking once again the place to which he’s always returned.

Corollary themes of this endeavor, says Walker, include anthroposophy, Schiller’s insights into the education of the aesthetic sense, and the French Revolution, and some flashes of the Illuminati as well, prior to their being stirred so deeply into the collective cultural soup.

Walker’s talks, monthly but for June and July when he travels the west once again, have been delivered only in our live stream since the beginning of the “special period” we have endured so long.

Now, we can host a small audience in the shop. Call for a reservation: 415-586-3733. Or just grab a friend and come out!

You’ll also find Walker’s talk live streamed
on our Facebook page or YouTube channel.
