Unified Consciousness: One Mind One Heart

The Common Insight of all Spiritual Traditions and of the Greatest Scientists

Seeing What St. Paul Saw

St Paul is usually misunderstood. Understandably, because he was an intense personality, a volcano of vision and passion. But failing to see what he is teaching is to miss out on one of the great sources of wisdom.

Evening Talks Series

The diverse speakers in this series bring common gifts to share with us as we deal with the challenges of our lives and the uncertainties about the future. Wisdom, intelligence and especially a lively and deep contemplative perspective. They become guides and inspiration for the journey we must follow through the year.

Future of Intelligence​

In this series of round table dialogues, we will explore integral intelligence: the several balanced and unified forms of intelligence that humanity is gifted with. Speakers in the series will draw on left and right hemisphere styles of attention and investigate the unique nature of spiritual intelligence, the risks of AI, and finally that art of socio-political intelligence.
