Into the Mystery: an Essay by Joscelyn Godwin Revisiting the deepest moments of 25 years of the Quest
Our final morning points towards our next onsite Quest in Portugal. In this single session we’ll meet Fabrizio Boscaglia, who will be our principal curator in Lisbon and Tomar and will introduce us to some of the most significant legacies of esotericism in Portugal by examining the work of poet Fernando Pessoa. We’ll include a short performance of Fado, Portugal’s signature, soulful, music of longing, and then Paulo Borges will take us deeper into the spirit of Fado, saudade, and into Pessoa’s writing about the invisible sovereignty within each heart. We will conclude our virtual conference as we do all of our Quests, with a special Closing Circle.
