Learning and discussing

Learning and discussing

A quiet rural and spiritual place to meet kindred spirits and learn


A wide-ranging survey of the ways in which Far and Middle Eastern scriptures and poetry have explored and expressed the nature and consequences of spiritual aspiration. We shall consider the thought and style of texts from pre-history to the Middle Ages, covering Lao Tzu, Indian scriptures, Rumi and Hafiz, focusing on their evocations of the difficulties and rewards of spiritual work. We will look at how their insights might assist our own understanding and development. All texts will be studied in translation.
