Farewell, Side Street, your comments were sensitive and most insightful.
We shall miss you.
Today Amazon released the second revision of The Rose, with many (corrected) edits.
The second revision is issued with gratitude to Brother David Steindl-Rast OSB of Gut Aich Priory in Salzburg, Austria.

Good to hear you, bernhohl. We all seem to have enjoyed the summer. Presently you and I may be the only discussants, but let's try to evoke SideStreet, who has a very good command of the material.

Just a note to say that the parallel (live) discussion on The Rose has been continuing with the Psychedelic Society of Durham University (UK), with Leonard responding by speakerphone to Q&As from the students there. That most recent (4th) session included a Cambridge theologian. See the Society's FB page for details. One can listen in by Skype. Instructions also available here on request. The 5th and final Q&A may be in October.

Many of the Durham students have recorded excerpts from The Rose for the intro podcast to the audio distribution of the entire work, at one chapter per month or so, which begins this winter. There are quite some prominent psychiatrists and spiritual leaders reading on the podcasts, I understand.

We'd best stay head of them!

Comments on Chapter 11 next weekend here, and each weekend thereafter..

Hi there,

Sorry to have been away, but there is exciting news.

A four-hour podcast of reading from The Rose of Paracelsus - On Secret and Sacraments is now online at:

The podcast has readers from the ages of 19 to 93, from the U.K., U.S., Germany, Austria and France. The well-loved theologian and Benedictine monk Brother David Steindl-Rast reads from Gut Aich Priory in Salzberg (see his TED talk on gratitude, with 6M views). British psychiatrist Ben Sessa MD reads, as does NYC psychiatrist and drug policy speaker Julie Holland, MD, and bioethicist Nese Devenot from Case Western School of Medicine. It's very well done, and produced by sisters Kat and Alexa Lakey. Enjoy. Post to your lists!
