FRIDAY 9TH FEBRUARY
Gypsies in Scotland and their Persecution by Euan Macpherson
Did you know it was a capital offence to be a gypsy in Scotland in the eighteenth century? And that if you were born a gypsy, you were an outlaw guilty of a criminal offence as soon as you had drawn your first breath?
FRIDAY 26TH FEBRUARY
The Wisdom Teachings and those of Carl Jung
Carl Jung described the spiritual quest in his concept of Individuation. This entails the unification of opposites within the human psyche: spirit and matter; male and female; conscious and unconscious whereby we may fulfil our spiritual potential via what Jung described as the Self. This presentation considers this, and other elements of Jung's teachings in the light of traditional esoteric teachings. Included here is a consideration of archetypes and symbols; the psychopomp or 'guide of souls'; the anima and animus; and our relationship to the unconscious.
Gary Kidgell is a professional astrologer who has studied the wisdom teachings for forty years. He has lectured extensively on esoteric subjects, as well as undertaking numerous astrological consultations throughout the UK and in Europe. Gary joined the Theosophical Society in 1994 as a founding member of the Dundee Lodge and as President. He is the current Organising Secretary for the Theosophical Society in Scotland and the librarian for the Theosophical Society in Scotland Charity. Gary has published two books: The Inner Journey: Pathways to the Higher Self and Greek Hero Myths: Symbols of Transformation.
