Title: The Bow and the Sword
Speaker: Nigel Blair

An informative talk that not only compares two fabled heroes (Gesar of Ling and King Arthur) but also provides wonderful insight into the Eastern and Western mystic traditions. Gesar Khan was the fearless lord of the legendary kingdom of Ling. His heroic deeds are recorded in an epic which is recited through performance, poetry and prose across Asia, its classic version found in Tibet. King Arthur is a legendary leader of the late 5th and early 6th centuries, who, according to medieval histories led the defence of Britain against Saxon invaders in the early 6th century

 
Title: Homeric Gods
Speaker: Will Rasmussen

In this talk Will discusses Homer's description of the divine world in the Iliad and the Odyssey. He then goes on to describe Homer's life and work, the main gods and goddesses and what does homers portrayal of the gods and the divine world teach us about our ourselves.

 
Title: The Spirituality and Teachings of Native American Indians
Speakers: Dennis Renault and Richard Peters

Central to the spirituality of Native American Indians is their relationship with the Earth. Dennis and Richard who are of the Lacota and Ojwa tribes of North America provide us with many other insights including their perspective on events that unfolded in the Americas and the importance of tradition as a foundation for knowledge. As indigenous people they remind us that whoever we are; we are all of the Earth that is our common bond. Our task is to understand this and that everything is life, everything is sacred and that life is a circle. We must also recognise that we have to reconnect with the Earth if we are to move forward.

 
Title: Revelation Upon Revelation
Speaker: Jean Smythe

In this lecture Jean talks about her research on the subject of revelations; looking at the work of Edgar Cayce, Rudolf Steiner and Ivanov. A revelation is dependent upon ones capacity to receive it relates to the development of the body, the mind and the spirit - the evolution of the self. To go forward in the face of a revelation one needs courage, conviction and an understanding that we are all on a journey.


Title: The Secret Garden. The Way of the Heart
Speaker: Patricia Davis

Patricia begins this talk with a meditation, a meditation of the Secret Garden . The Secret Garden is the way of the heart, the way of the inner child. She then goes on to talk about the relationship between the head and the heart and how it changes over time and affects our earthly lives. Despite the dominance of the head (the intellect and reasoning) it is the heart rather than the head that can help us most through our life's journey.
