For a time, Emanuel Swedenborg was a name that many in Europe and America were familiar with. These days, very few have even heard the name and those who have, the words ‘Madness’ or ‘Liar’ are not behind. Called by Ralph Waldo Emerson ‘A Mastodon of Literature’ the work and life of Swedenborg are indeed extraordinary. From his odd inventions, Life philosophy and his mystical experiences, there is much to learn from ‘The Scandinavian Da Vinci.’ So we head back to the Fools Gallery, to explore and introduce a figure that Doug feels should get a bit more recognition within the Occult than what he currently has.
My guest on this Episode was Lance Baker. Lance has a Clinic for Energy Healing, Hypnosis and much much more in Newcastle Australia, called Branches of Healing. A born healer, Lance has much to offer those who are suffering Physical and emotional pain. He also has his own Podcast Akasha Talks with Lance Baker where he talks with many interesting figures!
