Recent and Upcoming Events

Taking care of social media is time-consuming, as many of you know.  That is why I avoid most social media outlets as it would be a full time job  just trying to keep current.  I have some impossible deadlines this year — all achievable, but which demand focus and concentration — and updating a raft of media sites would basically shut me down!  So my apologies for not keeping this site updated as much as you,  or I, would like.

That said, here is some updated information:

The ongoing series of interviews on the Dave Emory/Spitfire site is, well, still ongoing.  We will soon complete the interviews dedicated to The Hitler Legacy, and the last one(s) should be up in the next few weeks.

In addition, I have done a long interview with Jasun Horsley on his site:

This is a thoughtful interview, going into matters philosophical and psychological, and some listeners have enjoyed the exchange of ideas they hear in this free-wheeling conversation.

I also taped an  interview for a Discovery Channel documentary on the Nazi underground.  When that is scheduled to appear, I will let you know.

Now for the weird news:

I have been asked to participate in Contact in the Desert: a UFO type conference that takes place at Joshua Tree in Southern California that is hosted by George Noory (of Coast-to-Coast AM) and which will boast an array of famous speakers on everything from aspects of disclosure to ancient alien theories, etc.

I will be giving a presentation at the ungodly hour of 7:30 am on Sunday, May 31 and  then a workshop that evening.  This is the first time I will be at such an event since that famous Secret Space presentation in Amsterdam some years ago.

Now you all know I am not the UFO guy, although I did cover some of the story in Sinister Forces, but my research and point of view makes it impossible for me to ignore the larger, sociological implications of the ongoing UFO phenomenon and its religious/spiritual aspects.  I will be talking about communication (is it possible between species, and especially between us and a species of which we have no real knowledge? how would that work?) and about the possibility that religious and shamanic experiences may reflect “contact” in some way.   Basically, my point of view is I think it is time we stopped trying to prove the reality of this phenomenon and started working with the material.

In addition, I am hard at work at finishing my next book which is about the relationship between European alchemy (especially in the persons of Thomas and Rebecca Vaughan) and Tantra.   Watch this space!

That’s all for now.  Back to work!

  1. Thanks for the updates! I’m still reading Tantric Temples. I really look forward to your next book.

  2. I was hoping you would get more into UFOs, because there seems to be a link between Nazism and this phenomenon. My big three for the political, UFO, and paranormal now are: Peter Levenda, Jacques Vallee and John Keel. Seems there is a tie in with the three researchers and their observations. -Lily Sandoz

  3. I agree with Lily about the big three. I hope those of us not able to go to the George Noory event. The Secret Space Program lecture was my introduction to Mr. Levenda. While I enjoy the interviews, the lecture was much more interesting and had fewer interruptions. I also didn’t have to listen to some bizarre right wing rants that make me cringe. The “big three” listed by Lilly are exactly right. Thank you for being rational, and showing people that the occult, paranormal, and conspiracy worlds are strange enough without crackpots and racists diluting the message. Many of the brilliant points are just obvious, and it shows how blind we are day by day. Thanks for doing the research the rest of us would obviously miss thanks to our terrible mainstream media and limited time and resources.

  4. Best Of Luck at The Conference. Awaiting Your New Book… And I knew that one of these Channels was Just about Ready to put You on. Take Care

  5. Just wanted you to know that I am a huge fan. Wish I could have made it out to Joshua Tree but work always gets in the way. Hope I can make one of your appearances in the future. I do have a question about the Finders and what happened in Omaha. Dont know if this is the place to ask it. Anyway, thanks for the hard work you do.

  6. Not sure if this belongs here, but is seems like alot of this may have some genesis in a 1923 novel by Talbot Mundy. Originally serialised in Adventure magazine. “The Nine Unkown”. Lot of ties to the OSS, Donovan, The Adventurers Club of New York. I apologize if this has been brought up before but I would really like to know more and there doesn’t seem to be much discussion on this that I can find.

  7. I can’t believe I missed this! Such a short drive from Pasadena, and I have at least four colleagues with lodgings in JT.
    Please reinstate a mailing list, Peter!

  8. More on Mundy:
    In 1922 Talbot Mundy discovered Theosophy and moved to the Theosophical commune Lomaland, located in Point Loma, San Diego and headed by Katherine Tingley. “The single most important action of his adult life”, according to biographer Brian Taves.
    More than coincidence at work here? Or perhaps, one should leave the vast darkness of it all unobscured just as Oppenheimer once quipped about old Bertrand and his quantifications?
