    With Rupert Spira
    This is a contemporary, experential approach involving silent meditation, guided meditation and conversation, and requires no affiliation to any particular religious or spiritual tradition.

    In his meetings, Rupert explores the perenial, non-dual understanding that lies at the heart of all the great religious and spiritual traditions, such as Adavaita Vedanta, Kashmir Shaivism, Hinduism, Buddhism, mystical Christianity, Sufism and Zen, and which is also the direct, ever-present reality of our own experience.

    Festival of the Living Earth - What is the Earth asking of us?
    The Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain warmly invites you to take part in its summer conference at Emerson College

Inspired by Rudolf Steiner’s and John Ruskin’s insights into the being of the earth, we wish to awaken a deeper sense of responsibility for our task in relationship to Nature at this time.
