My First Encounters with Occultism

It was in London in 1985. It was a period of light and darkness. In the daytime I worked as a gentlemen´s outfitter in Harrods, dressed in fine suits. In spring and summer, in the lunch break, I crossed Brompton road, and followed a narrow alley to Kensington Gardens, where I sat down by the Peter Pan statue at The Long Water, close to J.M. Barrie's former home on Bayswater Road. Barrie's stories were inspired in part by the gardens: the statue is located at the place where Peter Pan lands in Barrie's book The Little White Bird after flying out of his nursery. Here I ate my lunch while dreaming about a free and light future.

Back to the Philosophical Globetrotter, Life Artist and Idler

Diagon Alley - Places in Harry Potter

On my website I have announced that the text-work on the site was finished Tuesday, August 28, 2018. This text-work developed after my first book, because I got whirled into the New Age world. At first I met the New Agers when I sought help with my spiritual crisis. Hereafter, when I offered philosophical counseling, I was mainly contacted by New Agers.
