For the haunted houses that we are

Building on the success of the Idolatry of God event last year I’m running a second event called Holy Ghosts. This isn’t a retreat, lecture series or conference, but a curated festival of ideas. It was Charles Dickens who, in A Christmas Carol, showed us how ghosts appear during those times when we’ve become entombed in our own world and cut off Read More

Idolatry of God Event

About six months ago I had an idea. I wanted to run a small retreat in my hometown of Belfast that would explore some themes developed in my last book. But as I started to plan I became convinced (through the guidance of a friend in the creative industry), that I should rather curate a type of Read More

Idolatry of God: Special Guest Katharine Moody Confirmed!

As we continue to work on The Idolatry of God Retreat we realized that we needed someone who could address the wider cultural, political and religious significance of Pyrotheology. Whoever we invited would not only require an expert knowledge of the radical movement in general, but also an in-depth understanding of my own project and Read More
