A MP3 version if this talk is here.
Today, many people feel Dante’s Paradiso is irrelevant. It’s not. It is the place of true perception and delightful knowledge, and the goal of the Divine Comedy. The question is how to follow Dante’s lead and become aware of this domain of reality that is here, now as much as anywhere.
In this illustrated talk, I track how Dante’s perceptions expanded as, led by Beatrice, he transhumanised. I ask, too, who I might meet as guides on the way.
My book, Dante’s Divine Comedy: A Guide for the Spiritual Journey is out now.
