Buddhist Teachings on the Laws of Nature: From Karma to Nirvana

with John Cianciosi
Mondays, 7:00 - 8:15 p.m. CDT
September 14 – October 5 (4 classes) 

buddhis teachings classIn this course we will explore the Buddha’s discovery of the fundamental laws that govern existence. The Buddha taught the principle of conditioned arising to explain how things come to be without the need for an all-powerful being to orchestrate existence. This principle applies to karma, rebirth, the continuity of samsara, and the path to liberation. These laws of nature, just like laws of physics, operate regardless of whether we know them. However, by understanding these principals we are better able to direct our lives towards enlightenment.

Astrology and Tarot: Exploring the Intersection of Consciousness and Intuition

with Gwynne Mayer
Wednesdays, 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. CDT
August 19 - September 23 (6 classes)

astrology tarot gwyne maye augus 2020Our minds and bodies have to be centered in awareness, objective and impartial in observation, so as to receive messages from our intuition and our higher spiritual forces. We achieve this by allowing our egos to be mediators of the evolution of consciousness, rather than controlling factors in our development. Astrology and tarot can aid this process by determining the ‘times’ and factors that go into each day of our walk along the path of consciousness. This course will cover how we relate to others, how we adapt to the ‘times,’ and how our energies are under our control.

Registration includes on-demand access to recordings of all of the classes, which can be viewed for one week following the date they were presented.

TS Members: $90 • Nonmembers: $125 

Register here by August 18. Limit 25. 

You can also join Gwynne for an online workshop Dream Workshop: Deciphering the Symbolic Experience of the Dream World on August 8.
 

The Spiritual Search: Moving Beyond East and West to a Truth Beyond Expression

with Ravi Ravindra
Saturdays, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. CDT
August 1 – 29 (4 classes) No class August 22 

search for spirit ravi ravindraThe spiritual search is defined by a desire to learn why you have been created and what the meaning of your life is, and it’s an urge that is embedded in every person’s soul. The general religious and philosophical institutions often interfere with serious search, owing to their commitment to a specific religious perspective. In this class, we will explore how different religious perspectives can assist our search, and how they interfere.

If we can explore the perspectives of all religious traditions with sympathy and compassion, it is possible to go beyond any particular expression as all the great sages have insisted that Truth or God is beyond expression.

ravi ravindraRavi Ravindra is an author and professor emeritus at Dalhousie University, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where he served as a professor in comparative religion, philosophy, and physics. A lifetime member of the Theosophical Society, Ravi has taught many courses at the School of the Wisdom in Adyar and at the Krotona Institute in Ojai, California. He was a member of the Institute of Advanced Study in Princeton, a fellow of the Indian Institute of Advanced Study in Shimla, and the founding director of the Threshold Award for Integrative Knowledge.
