Anne Weir papers
Collection Scope and Content
This collection includes copies of Weir's writings from 1982-2000 and her 2002 literary trust, as well as "Copies of Original Writings."
The majority of her writing is a type of "transcribed" meditation or teaching that is similar to channeling and/or proprioceptive writing. Weir considered herself the transcriber for the teachings of Christopher Marlowe, who she also referred to as "The Breath". She collected her transcriptions into bound books, such as The Color Book, and Marlowe: being in the life of the mind.
