Changes to Louisville Esoteric Society

Uncategorized No Comments »

500x390-flammarionLouisville Esoteric Society has lost our lease in Bakery Square due to a business expansion next door overtaking our space.  After a fruitful six years of thought-provoking presentations we’ve decided it’s time for LES to evolve. For the time being we will discontinue our regular twice-a-month public meetings, but may re-start public meetings at some point in the future. If we do, we’ll post a notice here, so you will be aware of our plans.  

It’s been a wonderful six-year run.  Thanks to all those who chose to financially and spiritually support our intent to have a private and inspirational location for our gatherings.  Thanks to all those who have taken the initiative to present great topics to our group over the years.  The relationships we’ve formed are invaluable.  It’s you who’ve made the difference!

August 19, 2015 – The Metaphysical Nature of Wood

tree struck by lightningJoin us Wednesday August 19,  2015 at 6:30 PM for “The Metaphysical Nature of Wood presented by Thomas Freese.

Louisville Esoteric Society will host Thomas Freese, author/storyteller/artist on  August 19 for a presentation about trees, the “Standing People.” The Standing People—trees—are our planetary partners in healing. Thomas Freese has worked with wood for over 30 years, crafting a line of jewelry, wood wands, spoons and ornaments. Trees and wood have many properties to share, similar to the metaphysical offerings of stones and crystals. Thomas will bring his wood crafts and share some of the wisdom of woods.

As Marshall McLuhan said in the 1970s, “The medium IS the message.” Thomas has taken woods to psychics to receive information. In addition he has researched in books and online about the folklore, nature wisdom and metaphysical uses of various woods and writes,  “When I see a sculpture in a museum and it merely says ‘wood” for the material the artist used; I have to sigh and roll my eyes. What KIND of wood, where was the wood taken from, was it architectural salvage or wood struck by lightning? Wood is not plastic and this living medium offers us so many blessings beyond the practical.


Researchers from the University of Edinburgh have shown that trees grow faster when high levels of cosmic radiation reach the earth’s surface, concluding that cosmic radiation impacts tree growth even more than annual temperature or rainfall. Secondly, renowned researcher, Lawrence Edwards, found that tree buds changed shape and size rhythmically, in regular cycles all through winter, directly correlating to the moon and planets. The oak for example, appears to change with Mars, the Beech with Saturn and the Birch with Venus. Curiously, Edwards also found that overhead power lines disrupted this planetary influence.” Excerpted from:

Hope you’ll join us for what will surely be an enlightening and entertaining evening.  Some of Thomas’ wood art creations will be available for purchase.

All sincere seekers are welcome.  $10 for pay-as-you-go attendees; No charge for LES pre-pay Members.
