Nanaimo Museum looks at the rise and fall of Brother XII

The Nanaimo Museum is excited to welcome you back to their gallery or virtually for their popular Brother XII presentations.

The presentations, led by curator Aimee Greenaway, examine the history of Edward Wilson and his rise and fall as Brother XII. From a spiritual teacher to scandals and conspiracy theories, the presentation provides insight into this controversial historical figure and his Aquarian Foundation followers’ stories — including Madame Zee — through stories and photographs.

“Brother XII is one of the most infamous figures in Nanaimo’s past,” says Greenaway, who is also the books editor of British Columbia History magazine. “We receive questions from across the country about Brother XII so are excited to offer virtual and in-person presentations.”

The one-hour presentations take place on Oct. 20, 27, and 28 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The first two are in person, and the third is via Zoom.

Pre-registration is required. Find more info or buy tickets here.
