LIVE THE DREAM
Church of All Worlds: Fantasy and Reality
We will explore Heinlein’s original concept of Church of All Worlds as presented in Stranger in a Strange Land and how it inspired the founding of the real life CAW. We will look at videos of Oberon, Morning Glory and others who have lived in Nests of water brothers, group marriages, intimate networks and expanded families of all kinds. We may even get some of the participants to join us by phone and/or Skype. How does Pagan ritual and belief system fit into all this? Oberon says that since he did not have the ancient Martian civilization to draw upon (except the pieces of it in Stranger itself) he used ancient human wisdom—as well as more current metaphysical teachings. “All acts of love and pleasure are my ritual” fits in perfectly with the poly life style guilt free!
Perhaps Heinlein was inspired by pagan writings in the creation of his Martian civilization… 1 pm Pot Luck lunch bring something healthy and delicious to share.
