The Ancient Stones are Speaking: An Imaginal Journey to a Sacred Site with Dr Louise Livingstone – Sunday 20th February 2022 – 3:00pm-5:00pm (UK Time) – via Zoom – £15
The world is always in conversation with us; showing itself to us in its fullest living expression in every moment through vibrant images. In these rapidly changing times, how can we better engage with the dynamic, yet subtle, gestures of our planet and the more-than-human world that have so much to teach us? Such approaches towards us from the world are often missed through a purely head/mind-based rational worldview. In this session, we will take an imaginal journey to a sacred site on the Maltese island of Gozo through our organ of imaginal perception – the heart.
The Spiralling Heart with Dr Louise Livingstone – Tuesday 22 March 2022 – 6.30pm – 8.00pm UK Time – Via Zoom – £10
This talk is moves deeper into the philosophical implications of one of the hearts that Louise met during her PhD research. In her work, Louise communicated with, and deeply explored, the different hearts that live within her. One of these hearts presented itself as a spiral – becoming known to Louise as her ‘holistic’ or ‘spiralling’ heart.
Interspecies Communication and Community with Anna Breytenbach – Tuesday 24 May 2022 – 6:30pm-8.00pm (UK time) – via Zoom – £10
A natural birthright of all beings is the ability to communicate across apparent species boundaries. This creative and constructive imperative is at the heart of coexistence. We modern humans have fallen into a fog of forgetfulness – yet our true nature is that of connection and kinship. Beyond words and behaviour, we are in a dynamic quantum dance with the more-than-human world. Bringing our conscious awareness to these unspoken conversations is a great remembering. Through Anna’s stories and gentle guidance, we come to appreciate how accessible and intimate our intuition is. Interspecies communication is a beautiful way to restore our reverence for all life.
This paper discusses the relevance of the ‘four levels of interpretation’ of medieval theology – literal, allegorical, moral, anagogical – to the teaching of astrology at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. In an educational system increasingly bound to positivist assumptions a way is required to lead students to a deeper perception, and experience, of the symbolic.
