The Dream of the Cosmos: A Quest for the Soul

Wednesdays, April 15, 22, 29, and May 6, 2015, 6:30 -  9:00 pm

We live in an “ensouled” and sacred world, says Anne Baring in her book The Dream of the Cosmos: A Quest for the Soul, which aims to restore a sense of communion between ourselves and the invisible dimension of the Cosmos that is the source of all we call “life.”  Read this interesting and challenging book and join four rich conversations exploring Baring’s main themes, including:

  • The lunar era—the Great Mother and original participation in the cosmic soul

  • The solar era—the separation from nature and battle between good and evil; myth of the fall

  • The resurgence of the Divine Feminine—instinct, body, interconnection as a manifestation of soul 

  • The great alchemy—the process of the soul’s transformation

Expect your intellect and creative imagination to be challenged by deep dialogue and nurtured by guided meditation, centering, poetry and music. 

Please obtain The Dream of the Cosmos: A Quest for the Soul prior to the first class. The book is available in local libraries or can be purchased. Visit Anne Baring's website.
