AAC Associate Professor Ken Henson was a presenter at The 6th Annual Esoteric Book Conference, which took place at the University of Washington in Seattle last week. His presentation “Alchemy and Astral Projection, Ecstatic Trance in the Hermetic Tradition” was based on his recent book by the same title, which he wrote and illustrated in fulfillment of a 2013-14 Curtis G. Lloyd Fellowship he received from the Lloyd Library and Museum (Cincinnati, OH). At the conference, Ken also exhibited select paintings that were created as illustrations for his treatise.

The Esoteric Book Conference is an annual international event to bring together authors, artists, publishers and bookmakers working in the field of esotericism. In addition to presentations by notable authors and scholars, the conference opens it doors to publishers and booksellers showcasing new & used books as well as rare and hard-to-find esoteric texts. For two days the conference hosts the largest selection of esoteric books under one roof. Contemporary esoteric publishing, finepress book arts and antiquarian texts are offered to augment the libraries of readers, scholars and collectors alike.
