The Esoteric Quest in Scotland Open House

Meet Ralph White, Director of the Esoteric Quest, as he introduces us to what’s to come with our August 2017 main and post-conferences in Scotland. He briefly reviews the remarkable history of the Quests, and then shares with us a glimpse of the Outer Hebrides in the North Atlantic, a place where Celtic and Norse cultures intermingled, where megalithic standing stones dot the landscape of the isles of Lewis and Harris, and where big skies, mountain vistas, and the ever present rolling sea provide the context for our next and thirteenth Quest.
