Lecture on Megalithic South America - London, Thursday 7th June

A Presentation by Hugh Newman at Rudolf Steiner House, this Thursday 7th June at 7.30pm.

Hugh has been travelling around North, Central and South America investigating megalithic sites and tracking the path of the famous Rainbow Serpent and Plumed Serpent global energy currents for several years. His recent trip to Peru, Bolivia and Colombia will be under the spotlight in this presentation.

Gargantuan megalithic temples that predate the Inca exist in these countries that defy explanation and have legends that consistently relate to Virococha, or the 'Feathered Serpent', a god who was hugely influential in prehistoric times. He was said to be able talk any language, summon thunder and levitate big blocks of stone. He introduced sophisticated agriculture, metalwork, construction, and taught the arts of vegetarianism, art and good communication. Like the legends of Quetzalcoatl in Mexico, he arrived from the waters on a raft of serpents' and eventually left for pastures anew.

Who were these 'serpent' gods? Where did they come from? Were they masters of working with earth energies? Hugh will give an overview of all the megalithic sites he visited, including the lesserknown San Augustin in Southern Colombia and the incredible underground complex of Chavin de uanter in Central Peru.
