Our speaker for 30 June 2021 will be Brother P.D. Newman. His topic for the presentation will be “Angels in Vermilion: The Philosophers’ Stone: from Dee to DMT.” Once considered the “Holy Grail” of hallucinogens, over the last quarter century, DMT has entered the public mind like never before. No longer a taboo topic to be discussed in the hushed tones among an esoteric elite, P.D. Newman’s “Angels in Vermillion” traces the secret lineage of transmission, beginning with Elizabethan alchemists, Dr. John Dee and Sir Edward Kelley, winding through the Royal Society and Masonic fraternity, and leading all the way up to the nineteenth century occult revival – and beyond.
