Bard Medicine: Sacred Elixirs and Tantric Mantras from the Pen of the Dragon
The Ecology, Cosmos and Consciousness lectures series presents: Bard Medicine – Sacred Elixirs and Tantric Mantras from the Pen of the Dragon
Peter Moore (aka Pen Dragon) is a performance poet, pirate prophet and heretic healer who fuses myth, magic and slyly self-mocking tales of mystical misadventure into a wryly romantic, psychotropic-semantic cocktail so salty it should come with a Class A categorisation. An avid traveller, he has toured extensively in India and elsewhere including an eighteen month stint aboard the Institute of Ecotechnic’s Research Vessel Heraclitus. Artistically he seeks to distil the essence of the multiplicity of spiritual traditions into a poetic perennial philosophy both piquant and pertinent enough to inoculate against those twin enemies of true illumination – the Scylla of supercilious scientific cynicism and the Charybdis of uncritical New Age vacuity.
He divides his time equally between living and writing in India and performing at festivals, rituals and private gatherings in the UK and elsewhere. He is currently working on a volume of poetry, prose and visionary art with the working title of ‘Rimes of Passion’.
