After Mitch Walker finished his pioneering essay "Visionary Love" in the first half of 1976, his interest in "practicing the vision"—that is, living each day increasingly in a gay-centering psychological manner, only became greater, and thereby was he led to undertake what he considered a form of contemporary "gay shamanism." In tonight's talk, Mitch will focus on sharing how he learned about this fey occult practice, some of what it amounted to subjectively and interpersonally in its particulars, and will consider its nature as an early forging of "gay-centered inner work." He will also read from the essay and answer audience questions.
Mitch Walker has been a gay activist and scholar all his adult life, and was the first "out" homosexual writer to be published in the serious Jungian literature, with his groundbreaking paper on "The Double" in Spring 1976. He is the author of Men Loving Men (1977), Visionary Love (1980), The Revolutionary Psychology of Gay-Centeredness in Men (1999), The Uranian Soul (2008) and Gay Liberation at a Psychological Crossroads (2009), and co-founder of the Radical Faeries, Treeroots and the Institute for Contemporary Uranian Psychoanalysis.
