Join host Greg Carlwood, of The Higherside Chats podcast as he talks cinema symbolism with returning guest, Robert Sullivan. While the topic of cinema symbolism isn’t new to THC, considering the size and scope of the Hollywood’s reach, it may be time to take another look at the esoteric allegory and cinematic sorcery used to encode eternal archetypes, alchemical transofrmation, and occult ritual. Fortunately, today’s returning guest, Robert Sullivan, once again joins The Higherside to help us unfold the symbols and subtext behind the Hollywood machine. As a best selling author, lawyer, and 32nd degree Freemason, Sullivan offers an unmatched understanding of the deeper meaning behind some of society’s most beloved films.
