Vectors of the Counter-Initiation

Charles Upton is a poet, author, and activist who has published numerous books on Sufism, Metaphysics, and other topics. After graduating from a Catholic High School, Upton involved himself in a number of antiwar demonstrations, and became acquainted with many influential figures of the Beat Generation, including Gary Snyder and Allen Ginsberg. Throughout the early 80’s, Upton became involved in the New Age movement for several years before being introduced to the study of traditional metaphysics. His increasing interest in traditional studies culminated in his initiation into a Sufi order near the end of the decade. In the first hour, Charles will talk about false and subversive spiritualities. He classifies the worst of these spiritualities as examples of the Counter-Initiation of the true esoteric way. In the second hour, we’ll continue on counter-initiations and discuss revolutionary movements, the new age religion, technological advances, psychedelics, the 60’s, alien disclosure and the green movement. Upton explains how these have been used as an up to date mind control operation. Then, we’ll talk about deviated esotericism and explore the various esoteric and political groups which are part of the counter-initiation.
