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
