Forthcoming Traditionalist Fest in Canada

Sacred Web is organizing a major conference at the University of Alberta on September 23rd and 24th, 2006.

Many leading Traditionalists will be there. The speakers include:

  • The Prince of Wales
  • Seyyed Hossein Nasr
  • William Chittick
  • James Cutsinger
  • Jean-Loius Michon
  • Harry Oldmeadow
  • Reza Shah-Kazemi
  • Huston Smith
  • Two officials from the Jordanian court: Waleed el-Ansary and Joseph Lumbard
The Prince of Wales will not be there in person, but will be spending a taped address.

This promises to be a fascinating and important conference. I wish I could go myself... Others might like to check out the conference announcement, and if anyone feels like writing a short report (either for this blog or just for me) I would be most grateful.

An account of the conference, "Traditionalism in Edmonton" by John Robert Colombo, was published in Fohat, the quarterly journal of the Edmonton Theosophical Society, 10 (2006), pp. 84-88.
