The Ogmios Line and the Celtic Mysteries of Dorset

This 60 minute presentation, followed by 30 minutes Q and A, will look at late Victorian occult intrigues about Dorset Earth Mysteries that have evolved to shed light upon the spiritual mysticism of the heartlands of the Celtic tribe of Dorset; the Durotriges, and their relationship to their sacred landscape – and beyond.  Peeling back the many centuries of intrigue – touching upon Glastonbury Tor and Gwyn ap Nudd; the isle of Portland; Maiden Castle; the Cerne Abbas Giant; the Celtic Sea Trade; Dion Fortune; Katharine Maltwood; and the great goddess of the land, Nemetona 'She of the Sacred Grove'.

Yuri Leitch is an artist and writer, born in Devon in 1968, he has spent most of his life in the West Country – and recent years in the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey.  He has been involved with psychical research and Earth Mysteries studies since the late 1980s.  His main interests are Celtic mysticism and the occult intrigues of British history.  He is the author of many books including 'The Pagan Temple of Glastonbury Tor'; 'The Terrestrial Alignments of Katharine Maltwood & Dion Fortune'; and most recently - the seven-hundred page – 'Gwyn: God of Annwn'
