Welcome to our independent centre for transformative learning, that expands on the work of our postgraduate (MA and PhD) academic initiative in Myth, Cosmology and the Sacred that ran at Canterbury Christ Church University between 2014 and 2021. Our ongoing work builds extensively on academic research, and in this website you will find links to all our live and downloadable offerings, our vision, people, fundraising, archive of MA material, bookshop and much more. Our events, lectures, webinars and courses fall into three main ‘umbrella’ themes, and are listed in the tabs below, and in their appropriate theme category. We hope you will subscribe to our newsletter and participate in this exciting new initiative to awaken the eyes of imagination, and step into a sacred space where mind and heart can unite.

Arts & Humanities

The Arts and Humanities are becoming increasingly sidelined in mainstream education, where they are usually presented in ways which dilute, decode and deaden the very essence of what they seek to awaken. While conventional education seems to think spoon-feeding is the way to learning, we should remember the words of William Butler Yeats who said, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire”, words which recall both Plato and Plutarch.

Gaia

This theme area covers a wide range of topics connected to our relationship with the living earth. By taking an earth-centred philosophical approach, we open to the possibility of widening and deepening our gaze in communion with the earth’s unfolding – embracing the imaginal worlds of religious philosopher Henry Corbin, and depth psychologists Carl Jung and James Hillman.

Spirit & Psyche

This theme covers a vast terrain of topics connected to the identity of the human soul and its relationship with dimensions of reality we call spiritual, as well as its communion with intelligences we call divine or daimonic.  It embraces the imaginal world of Henry Corbin – the liminal space between the world and the spirit – and the far reaches of the human imagination which is able see beyond the material plane in a myriad of mysterious ways.
