Roger Buck: Episode 9 - From Findhorn to the Catholic Mystery

Mr Buck discusses his journey from New Age activist to Traditional  Catholic.

Roger Buck, a former member of the international New Age community of Findhorn, Scotland recalls his life there, as well as his long years as a New Age activist - prior to discovering the Catholic Mystery. Buck discusses the origins of Findhorn and how he experienced the community starting with his first visit in 1980 and during the nearly three years in which he later lived there. He also addresses the spiritual hunger New Agers face in a materialistic wasteland, deprived of the transcendent power of the Sacraments of the Church. Topics also include the Eastern esoteric roots of the New Age and Findhorn in the Theosophy born of Helena P. Blavatsky (pictured above) and Alice Bailey whose Theosophy profoundly influenced such Findhorn pioneers as Peter Caddy and David Spangler and which Buck once consumed avidly himself. Roger Buck is a Catholic convert as well as the author of three books published by Angelico Press. An American by birth, he now lives in the northwest of Ireland, searching for ways to preserve Irish Catholic culture.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
