PROGRAMME FOR AUTUMN 2019
Susan McAvoy - Holy Fire Reiki
In May of this year, Susan travelled to Jerusalem to learn how to teach Holy Fire Reiki with William Lee Rand. Holy Fire Reiki is a relatively new form of Reiki healing, developed or 'given' to Rand in 2015. Holy Fire energy is mentioned in the bible and is an energy that has been active in the world since ancient times. Susan has practised and taught Reiki for over 20 years and her experience of Holy Fire is that this is more powerful and deeper acting than Usui Reiki. In this talk you will hear more about Holy Fire and get a chance to experience this energy through a Holy Fire Experience.
Tim Wyatt - Redefining Death
Tim is a journalist, writer, broadcaster, musician and actor with more than four decades’ experience in all sections of the media. A keen esoteric, he has been researching the Ageless Wisdom since the 1960’s. Tim’s talk will give us the opportunity to redefine our approach to death.
Death as the permanent extinction of all life, as oblivion and as annihilation is not only a myth but the biggest lie ever peddled on this planet. You could say it was the ultimate in fake news. Although many people believe in an afterlife of some kind, death still remains their biggest fear and often blights their lives. In the West, those believing in re-birth remain in a minority.
Zain Kurdi - Wheel of the Year, the I-Ching and the Human Design System
Zain is a Human Design Professional Consultant and Coach. Her talk will centre around the wheel of the year, including pagan celebrations and their relation to the degrees of the zodiac and the specific hexagrams in the I-Ching. This will tie in to the relationship between the specific hexagram of the I-Ching and the corresponding codon of our DNA. The Human Design System will be used as the framework highlighting the eight hexagrams which lie in the Self Centre in the Human Design Life Chart, which is the seat of the soul and the centre of our connectedness, love and direction.
Euan Macpherson - The Mahabharata
It is said in India that there is nothing in human existence which does not have a place in the Mahabharata. India's timeless classic is one and a half times the size of The Bible and tells the story of the life of Krishna interwoven with the destructive war that arose out of the rivalry between two dynasties. This story of right and wrong, of good and evil, not only casts a torchlight on human weakness but also offers up guidelines on the ways in which each of us can begin to lead a better life.
Gary Kidgell - Archetypes and the Spiritual Path
Carl Jung illustrated that archetypes or "divine ideas" are represented within the human psyche as symbols. This presentation considers the archetypes and the role that they play in our evolution, in the light of classical esoteric teachings. There is a particular emphasis upon the symbolism contained within the great hero myths of our world and also a consideration of symbols found in the dreamlife. Gary has studied esoteric teachings for the last thirty-five years. He has lectured throughout the UK and Europe. Gary’s book ‘The Inner Journey: Pathways to the Higher Self' has been distributed internationally.
Scot MacKenzie - The Voice of the Silence
Helena Blavatsky was a Russian occultist, philosopher, and author who co-founded the Theosophical Society in 1875. Scot will lead an evening of readings and contemplation based on Madame Blavatsky’s inspirational work published in 1889. According to Blavatsky, it is a translation of fragments from a sacred book she encountered during her studies in the East called "The Book of the Golden Precepts" giving guidance to students on the spiritual path.
Jeff Imrie - Coming out of the Shadows
Lecturer, healer, dowser, welder, sculptor- Jeff will share the fruits of his spiritual journey covering: Spiritual Quotient, Inner Matrix, Sacred Geometry, Conscious Evolution of the Soul, Sculpting in Spirit and more!
Owen Pilgrim - The Dark Wild
In the realm of mythology, there is told of journeys into the darkest places of the wild in order to find wisdom, treasure, or a lost soul. These tales reflect the journey into ourselves to the darkest recesses of the mind in order to retrieve or release parts of ourselves that are unseen but necessary to a greater understanding of ourselves and the experience of being human. Sometimes these journeys are undertaken in conjunction with a physical journey into the wild or by pilgrimage, sometimes we are forced to embark on these journeys involuntary due to events in our lives.
In this talk, Owen will explore stories that encapsulate the journey into the dark wild, as well as looking at practices, experiences and ceremonies that relate to the guiding of our personal journey into our own darkness.
Meetings are held at 7.00 for 7.15pm start in Room 2, G13, Dalhousie Building, Dundee University, Hawkhill, Dundee DD15EN
Admission: £3.50, concession £3.00, Members £2.50 All welcome
