Paldywan's public talks
These podtalks are longer and more immersive than my podcasts.
They are for you who have attended talks, heard podcasts and read books by me. Or perhaps you've been involved in an event I was at in a former decade. Or perhaps you just fell on this page and found it interesting.
The podtalks are for you who need a few vitamins and enzymes from an old campaigner, still on the case.
I have bone marrow cancer (myeloma), I'm partially disabled and a clock is ticking on me - this strange gift has changed my perspective. It makes me see life from another angle, and I've gone deeper.
I'm not interested in persuading you to believe anything. You've had enough of that - and you have what it takes to form your own conclusions. Though I have some interesting insights and perspectives.
In some respects I'm really way out and left-field, but in other respects there's something sensible and realistic going on here.
I've been a founder of several projects, a writer and editor of books, a speaker from many stages, a humanitarian, peacemaker and historian. Oh, and an astrologer and geomancer. And a webmaster... stuff like that.
I live in a cabin with a lovely view over fields and woods on an organic farm in Penwith or Pennwydh, at the far end of Cornwall, UK.
I spend a lot of time alone, tuning in to the zeitgeist day to day, twiggling my antennae. Then I write or podcast about whatever comes up.
These PodTalks aren't scripted. I do think up talking points, but it's quite spontaneous. That's how I do it, and I've done it like that for ages.
I've often been about 30 years ahead of my time, so that, after I pop my clogs, this material might become more pertinent and useful as time goes on - perhaps as messages from a new age spiritual ancestor.
I want to leave something of this behind, and this is it. It's for you.
With love, Paldywan Kenobi.
A talk given by Palden at the OakDragon Camp, Somerset, August 2023. It's about sympathetic, ecologically and socially sustainable cultures in the Mesolithic, Neolithic and Bronze Ages in Britain - Goddess cultures.
Ancient sites such as dolmens, barrows and stone circles and why they were built. They were sophisticated energy-structures for advanced shamanic work in which medical procedures, weather-influencing, long-distance communication, resolution of social stresses and living religion itself were possible. These cultures declined by 1200 BCE, and Palden traces the stages by which this happened. This concerns our future, healing and uniting our planet and changing the very basis by which human society works.
A talk in Glastonbury on the world's future, on the group mind, resonance and changing the rules by which things operate. Easter 2023. 1hr 9mins.
The clicking in the background was a noisy chair I was sitting on!

Talks by Palden from
(mainly) the 1990s
A talk in Glastonbury in 1990 about the astronomy of prehistoric sites of the Neolithic and Bronze Ages. It explains solstices, equinoxes, cross-quarters, the cycle of the Moon, eclipses, lunar maxima and minima, the stars, planetary line-ups and power points in time, and longterm cycles of time.
Nov 1996, PAN Conference, Lancashire. A 1996 talk about the world healing work of the Hundredth Monkey Project, and the Council of Nine's view of why world healing is needed. In the early 1990s I compiled a book for the Nine called The Only Planet of Choice, and this talk is about that rather momentous work.
Wessex Research Group, Sherborne, Dorset, 1995. A talk about a necessary shift in world values in order for the world to come to rights. Ggood and evil, light and darkness, indifference, public values and humanity's choice. 1hr 20m.
Byron Bay, Australia, 1992. About the Council of Nine's perspective on Planet Earth. Given soon after I wrote The Only Planet of Choice.
Huddersfield, Yorkshire, Feb 1987. A wide-ranging astrological talk, for anyone a little familiar with astrology. It was aimed at a group of young people born around 1965-66, then in their early twenties. They were born during a power period in history. It's about the outer planets, the way history changes, times of intensity and change, and our life's work. Here are astrological charts mentioned in this talk.
