Richard Rose was a down-to-earth mystic, poet, esoteric philosopher and Zen adept from the hills of West Virginia. He reached thousands of people via his lectures across the U.S. over two decades, and worked directly with a group of about 100 dedicated students. This video was produced late in his teaching career, in 1991, and despite his age, the dynamism of the teacher is striking. The camera follows a group of students as they attend a university lecture by Mr. Rose and then drive to his rustic “ashram” (farm in West Virginia) for a weekend meeting.
Any student of magick or the occult arts will note the tremendous power and clarity of this teacher.
