Ours is a culture which has no vision. It is at present imprisoned in a dying or outworn image of God and in a secular view of reality which has cut us off from the Earth and the Cosmos and from our own soul. Despite all the talk of freedom and human rights, countless millions live their lives in bondage to patriarchal images of God which are limited in concept and rigid in their authoritarian control over the human spirit.

For 15 years transpersonal psychologist Steve Taylor has been researching the phenomenon spiritual awakening. In his books The Leap and Extraordinary Awakenings, he has identified a number of essential qualities of the awakened state, as well as the different ways in which awakening can occur.

Gaia Alchemy with Dr Stephan Harding – Sunday 29th January 2023 via Zoom – 3.00-5.00pm UK Time – £15
About 400 years ago during the scientific revolution science and soul were drastically separated, propelling humanity into centuries of a valuable yet one-sided style of empiricism and rationality which has fundamentally disconnected us from each other and from nature. In this perspective, there is no room for the soul (anima or psyche), or for the development of empathy, intuition and feeling in relation to nature. This tragic separation is at the root of the serious ecological, climatic and psychological crisis which we currently experience all over the planet.
Now, for the first time, we have access to detailed scientific knowledge of the dynamics of the Earth, while depth psychology has shed light on the functioning of the human psyche. In this seminar we will explore how combining these apparent opposites – science and psyche – can help us recover our intrinsic wholeness to heal ourselves and the earth.
