Wisdom Traditions of the East

Wisdom Through the Ages (new) HFMR

Thursdays 1400-1600 weekly from 5th Oct

Convener: James Wright

Providing there is sufficient interest, it is hoped to form a serious study group to consider some of the writings and sayings of exceptional (and lesser known) figures tracing the transmission of traditional wisdom from the 6th century BC up to the present day, with special emphasis on the comparison of Eastern masters with their near contemporaries in the West, viz.

EASTEASTWEST WEST
Chuana Tzu/Lao Tzu4th Cent. BCPythagoras6th Cent. BC
Shankara8th Cent. AD?Heraclitus6th Cent.BC
Gorakhnath11th Cent,AD?Pseudo-Dionysius5thCent AD
Ibn Arabi1188-1240 ADMeister Eckhart1260-1328
Nanak1469-1539 ADNicholas of Cusa1401-1464
Osho1931-1990Adyashanti1962-

This is most definitely NOT an “information” course, and although no previous knowledge is necessary, it will only be of interest to those who are prepared to make a serious commitment to group study on a regular basis.

If you are interested in making a joint voyage of discovery where you will be doing the work in conjunction with similarly motivated others, and IF you would be prepared to make a personal commitment to the group as a regular member, your participation would be much valued, and I hope you would find it also personally rewarding.

If you are interested, please contact James Wright but don't forget also to register for the group using the usual Green Form procedure.
