If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you.
If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.
— Gospel of Thomas

We're living in a time of tremendous upheaval and turmoil. Old structures are crumbling rapidly, existing models are no longer fit for purpose, and we don't yet know what is going to replace them. There was a time when we could turn to an outside authority to show us the way forward, but that time is past. The so-called experts are lost, too, caught up in the same whirlwind of transformation as the rest of us.

What can we fall back on, when we are surrounded by such chaos and uncertainty?

Is there a source of deep, inner wisdom that we can tap into and bring forth that will enable us to keep our bearings and to move forward in a positive direction, despite the challenges we face?

Whilst there is no 'five-step', one-size-fits-all formula that will be helpful to everyone, we can each remember and re-awaken in our own unique way to the sacred knowledge that lies dormant in every human heart.

That same knowledge is embedded in all of the great spiritual, religious and mystical traditions, if we can but have the eyes to see it and the ears to hear it. The ancient myths and legends allude to it. Music, poetry and the visual arts stir our memory of what has been obscured but never completely lost. Our own dreams and fantasies offer up glimpses, as do the forms of nature that we find resonance with.

In this brand new online programme, I invite you to join me for an exploration and excavation of the wisdom of the ages that is both timeless and timely, as relevant today as it has always been.

We will touch upon the archetypal patterns and universal themes that form the backdrop to our daily life, and uncover the points of resonance within your own body-mind that are ready to break through into consciousness.

The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe - to match your nature with Nature.
— Joseph Campbell

In this way we link the personal to the impersonal, the individual to the collective, the local to the universal. Doing so provides us with a broader perspective, a deeper understanding and a higher vantage point from which to journey forth. It helps us to make sense of life and to find a deeper meaning and purpose that can truly sustain us through the darkest of times.

 
In all chaos there is a cosmos. In all disorder a secret order.
— C.G. Jung
