Love, Levitation, and the Mystery of Consciousness:
The Story of Joseph of Copertino
Join writer and researcher Michael Grosso for a talk about one of the strangest men that ever lived. For 35 years St Joseph of Copertino (1603-1663) embarrassed the Catholic Church and enthralled Europe with his public ecstasies and levitations. So disruptive was he that by the end of his life he found himself under house-arrest, hidden away in a convent at a remote Adriatic shore. Can a human being really fly? Is there something in human consciousness that can bend the laws of physics? Grosso will review the career of this psychic superstar: the evidence for his amazing phenomena, his impact on the people around him, and his significance for the 21st century.
Michael Grosso is an author and independent scholar who researches psychophysical anomalies; he’s working on a book about Joseph of Copertino.
