Episode #18: Mysteries of Dionysus with Peter Mark Adams Coffee & Divination

    • Religion & Spirituality

On this episode of Coffee & Divination, we welcome back author Peter Mark Adams. Peter is the author of “The Game of Saturn: Decoding the Sola-Busca Tarocchi” and "Dancing out the Mysteries of Dionysus."  This was a fantastic discussion of the Dionysian themed frescos of Pompeii’s Villa of the Mysteries, which are not only incredibly beautiful works of art, they constitute the single most important theurgical narrative to have survived in the Western esoteric tradition. It was a great conversation that delved into some beautiful territory, and I hope you enjoy it!

PLEASE NOTE: In the video version of this episode, found on Vimeo and linked here in the show notes, I include images of some of the frescos as we discuss them, so I recommend watching the video version if you have the chance.
