‘The Next Step’ Workshop – The nature of the universe and the obstacles to being present
For students from part 4 (Presence of Mind) onwards and any ex-students that have studied with the school to the second year and above
at Newland House, Edgbaston, Birmingham
On Sunday 25th February 2018, 9 30am to 4 00 pm
Cost £22 including vegetarian buffet lunch and all refreshments
According to a Vedic model the universe expands through various stages to the material world (earth) which is obvious and in which we live. But what of the other less obvious worlds?
There are three aspects of our false superficial nature that hold us in check and are obstacles to realising our true nature. Each one is a result of over identification with one of the three energies (Guna). We shall discuss our true essential nature and how this apparent ignorance comes about through this over identification.
Through the model (the circle of nine points) the day will provide the opportunity to discuss, explore and observe the less obvious worlds available to us and recognise the main features of our manifest superficial nature that stop us from experiencing “being present” and centred in our true essential nature.
The programme for the day is:-
09:00 – enrol and tea/coffee
09:30 – the circle of nine points and the expansion of creation
10:30 – tea/ coffee
10:50 – some practical exercises to realise the present moment
12:10 – all meet to discuss observations etc
12:45 – vegetarian lunch
13:45 – further enquiry and discourse
15:00 – afternoon tea
15:15 – meet to review day
15:45 – 16:00 depart
The cost for the day, including vegetarian lunch is £22 and all refreshments.
Please bear in mind that although these workshops are obviously optional they are also part of the course from the point of view of Self-discovery and spiritual growth, so I can only encourage you to take advantage of these unique, transforming and blissful days. The day will be run by Steve Davy & Darren Wagstaff.
The effect of a day like this is always light, peaceful and uplifting and it is a marvellous opportunity to practice philosophy.
