Richard Power's Primal Reality series constitutes a significant contribution to the emerging global wisdom tradition of the 21st Century. Power delivered this presentation at the San Francisco Theosophical Society on March 18th, 2016 to mark the release of "Cauldron Yoga, Gaian Poetics and the Way of the Future," the fifth and final book in the series, (The video embedded below is also available via the Spoken Words of Power You Tube Channel.)

In the talk, Power explores the overarching themes that frame this series of books:
  • The evolution of yoga and the yoga of evolution. 
  • A Tantric vision of birth, death and transformation, in which human incarnation is experienced as divine revelation. 
  • The ascendancy of the feminine in psyche (human and divine). 
  • The poetics of our intimate, creative relationship with the vast planetary intelligence within which we live, move and have our being. 
  • A contemplation of the human condition in the early 21st century. 
  • Altruism and sustainability as spiritual (and existential) imperatives 
  • A call to the great shift required if our species is to evolve, i.e., the great shift to a green global civilization. 
In the course of the talk, Power reads excerpts from each of the five books. His "Epiphanies." Existential. Somatic. Reality-based. Experiential. New language for perennial truths. Dispatches from the Ancient Future. An inventory of open secrets. A compass for the pathless path.
