We are happy to welcome back Robert Woolley from Northampton as our Guest Speaker at the 2016 Federation Spring Conference Merseyside.
Robert will be giving 2 talks at Merseyside. The first begins at 2 pm and is entitled:
The Masters of Wisdom and the Brotherhood of Humanity
This talk explores the nature and significance of “The Masters” who were behind the Theosophical Movement in the Nineteenth Century.
It attempts to disentangle some of the related concepts of Enlightenment, Illumination, Supernatural powers, Secret Fraternities and World Government and the concept of Brotherhood which they promoted.
It also explains how this is relevant to our own lives and spiritual development in the 21st Century.
There will be a break for a BRING AND SHARE AFTERNOON TEA
The Second talk is :
The Mystery of Consciousness
Most of us are conscious, more or less, most of the time.
So it is surprising that we have so little direct knowledge of consciousness.
The scientific community have, until the last 10 years, steered clear of the subject, not least because of the impossibility of defining it, and the impossibility of measuring subjective experience.
In this talk we shall explore the experience of consciousness and relate that experience to scientific findings and to the ancient wisdom.
All welcome. Venue: Friends Meeting House, 22 School Lane, Liverpool. L1 3BT
