  1. If it’s available, I would love to read the full transcript from the lecture “From Solstice to Equinox and Back Again.” Might there be a book coming out on this subject?

    • Hi! Julian hasn’t yet submitted his paper, but when he does (by Feb 1st 2012) we will post it up from a link to the Mt Haemus page on http://www.druidry.org and then it will be published in print form as part of 8 contributions in 2016 (!) I’m not sure Julian will be writing a whole book on this, but I know he is working on a book and the subject of the influence of solstices etc on human health will form part of it.
