Patrick Everitt

Patrick Everitt is an independent researcher of western esotericism and philosophy from Ireland. He completed a BA in Arts (Philosophy, Greek & Roman Civilization) at Maynooth University, where he wrote his philosophy dissertation on the system of magical and mystical attainment described in the Oratio (1486) by Renaissance philosopher Pico della Mirandola (1463 – 1494). He later completed the MA in Religious Studies (Western Esotericism) at the University of Amsterdam, where he wrote his Master's thesis investigating the role of the psychedelic peyote cactus in the life and work of the English occultist Aleister Crowley (1875 – 1947). His primary research interests are: the religious philosophy of Aleister Crowley; the psychedelic philosophies of Timothy Leary (1920 – 1996), Robert Anton Wilson (1932 – 2007), and Terence McKenna (1946 – 2000); and, the ritualistic use of psychedelics by occultists to attain mystical experiences and unite with higher forms of consciousness. He has presented on his research at the Interdisciplinary Conference on Psychedelics Research, the Irish Network for the Study of Esotericism and Paganism, Breaking Convention, the O.Z.O.R.A. Festival, Altered Conference, Beyond Psychedelics, and the European Society for the Study of Western Esotericism's (ESSWE) bi-annual conference.
