Living Knowledge: Patterns of Life and Death in the Company of a Master

April 16 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Lucy Oliver’s new book Tessellations: Patterns of Life and Death in the Company of a Master (Matador, published 28th March 2020) is an unusual, fascinating account interweaving memoir, biography, wisdom teaching and metaphysical philosophy to present a rare illustration of how oral tradition of knowledge can be transmitted in modern Britain under the guidance of an extraordinary sage.

Tessellations is the first direct, personal account of over forty years under the direction of her inspiring and authentic spiritual teacher, who insisted on obscurity while he lived. As the text reveals, life around such an individual is never dull.

At this free Watkins Books talk, Lucy Oliver will discuss Tessellations and its embodiment of some of the founding principles of spiritual teaching, removing some of the mystique and superstition which have encrusted traditional esoteric work.

“A captivating, affectionate, and utterly factual account of the man who is the closest thing to a Master that I have ever met.” – Richard Smoley, author and editor of Quest Journal

About the author:
Born in Australia and living in the UK since 1972, Lucy Oliver has a lifetime’s direct engagement in the esoteric spiritual path. Following academic studies on sacred symbolism, she has been a teacher and practitioner of meditation and the western oral tradition for over 40 years.
