“This is the stranger-than-fiction story of two soul mates who rejected the status quo and embraced higher ideals … and had a whole lot of fun while they were at it. Reclaiming Pagan as a spiritual identity—and living in an open marriage for over four decades—Oberon and Morning Glory Zell truly embody the freedom to think, to love, and to live.

Telling the stories of their singular lives in this unique oral history, Oberon and Morning Glory—together with a colorful tribe of friends, lovers, musicians, homesteaders, researchers, and ritualists—reveal how they established the Church of All Worlds, revitalized Goddess worship, discovered the Gaea Thesis, raised real Unicorns, connected a worldwide community through Green Egg magazine, searched for mermaids in the South Pacific, and founded the influential Grey School of Wizardry.

Join Morning Glory and Oberon as they share the highs and lows of their extraordinary lives, and explore the role they played in shaping the community of Witches and Pagans that thrives in the world today.”

The Light: AFTERLife

“My late grandfather was a man of presence, with great insight and intelligence. Polish in origin, he fled to Great Britain after Germany’s invasion of Poland along with 160,000 other members of the Polish Army, who were attached to the British army, alongside British forces in 1939.

He had a will and integrity of steel, had an outstanding capacity for inspiration and shared many a story with a loving patience that I will forever remember. His effect on my life and my development as a human being has been and continues to be, absolutely remarkable.

Making this film was a deeply personal and cathartic process and has mentally prepared me for the next phase in my personal development and direction. I have felt compelled and guided to make it, which became all the more profound with the synchronicity of receiving twenty of his cine reels, which I wasn’t aware existed. Here in this film I talk to my partner about him and using just a few of those reels, I have been able to scratch at the surface of an extraordinary man.

This film concentrates purely on his spiritual insights and beliefs and poses the question, what of the afterlife, of life AFTER death?”
