“Art & Philosophy of the Spirit”


Our contemporary definition of ‘spirit’ is based on the convergence of three streams of knowledge: the impact of Eastern spiritual systems on the West in the 19th century and the parallel re-emergence of the Western stream of esoteric knowledge; followed by a 20th century global culture shaped by Internet technology. In separating ‘the spiritual’ from ‘the religious’, this groundbreaking course investigates a global, culturally inclusive interpretation of contemporary spirituality. All participants will benefit from an unbiased, non-denominational presentation of this sensitive domain. The narrow focus of spiritual systems will be defined, and the art of spiritual practices and spiritual philosophies interpreted.
