Presentation by juliana cesano - ts international speaker
Awakening Spiritual Consciousness Through the Heart Centre: 10:30am - 12:30pm
At the core of mystical traditions lies the burning flame of the heart, as the doorway to direct Union with the Divine. Like the mystics, occultist and TS founder H. P. Blavatsky, regarded the heart centre as the seat of spiritual consciousness and provided guidance for us to follow. In this workshop we will explore the meaning and nature of the heart from an esoteric and mystical perspective, the foundations of a heart centred meditation practice, and the essential requisites to tread this path, as taught by those who walk ahead of us.
Experiencing the Divine: Mysticism Across Religious Traditions: 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Underneath the surface of religious traditions there is an inner stream of teachings given by the mystics. Despite vast separations in time, place, language, and culture these women and men speak a common language based on the direct realisation of Reality. Their shared experiences are precious signposts for all spiritual seekers, and their advice can be followed in the midst of an apparent mundane life.
