TNP96 Secrets of the Temple with John Michael Greer

43 minutes

In this episode, we're talking with popular guest, John Michael Greer, about his book, The Secret of the Temple: Earth Energies, Sacred Geometry, and the Lost Keys of Freemasonry. He explains how ancient temples around the world and from different eras are actually forms of technology that affect agricultural fertility and bind human communities in a material way with the larger forces of nature. Our conversation tours history and humanity, stopping off to look at the Temple of Solomon, the Freemasons, and his take on the two shapes of time.

John also expands the function and importance of bread, blood, chanting and incense as related to temple technology.

Once again, a conversation that is both broad and deep.

Find all of John's 40+ books (!) here, and his essays here.
