Ancestral Veneration

Ancestral Veneration: Honoring the Dead Across Cultures

Ancestral veneration is one of the oldest spiritual practices on the planet. Time honoured traditions of venerating and remembering those who have come before us, the dead and the long forgotten span across pre-colonial spiritual practices, seep into neo pseudo religious cult, saint followings and nearly every known culture across the globe. In this talk we explore what it means to honour or venerate one's ancestors.

Stoic philosophy

Stoic Wisdom Today

Stoicism has seen an astonishing revival over the past decade. But what is Stoicism? This interactive online talk aims to rectify distorted conceptions around the subject. After a short historical and philosophical introduction to Stoicism, we explore four central ethical themes: understanding what benefits us, choosing what promotes our well-being, developing a sense for what is up to us (and what is not), and being affiliated with others and the world around us.

The art of light - hikari

Japanese Calligraphy: The Art of Light

Each event we will centre around a new symbol: we will learn its meaning, discuss a poem about it, meditate and experience the power of the concept through a calligraphy practice. During the short meditation you will be invited to a moment of alignment between your body and soul, to find a channel through which you can listen to your inner voice. This approach helps to concentrate and sense the power of now. This time we will focus on character HIKARI and explore The Art of Light.
