Esoteric, Occult and Spiritual Los Angeles
New Friday Lecture Series
Since the early 20th Century our city functioned as the center of Esotericism in the United States. Dr Hoeller has been active in the Los Angeles esoteric milieu since the 1950s, and will discuss the nature, the history, the past and future of these currents.
