THE ORIGINS OF CONSCIOUSNESS: When outer gods became inner wisdom
with Tom Roberts
August 10 through 12, from 2:00 to 3:30pm every day
Sessions will take place via Zoom conference
This will be a exploration into the origins of consciousness and how it ushered in a dramatic shift of our spiritual awareness.
We will trace the early (Bicameral) awareness that shaped primordial concepts of our relationship to our environment and the gods that were believed to control us. Then we will explore the amazing shift in this understanding that occurred between 4-6,000 years ago. Along with many other indicators, there emerged individuals that were expressing experiences and awareness that were heretofore foreign.
Beginning with the ancient writings of the Vedas and the Bhagavad Gita to Lao Tzu, Buddha, Jesus, Talmud, The Desert Mothers and Fathers up to our deepening consciousness as to our elemental place in all creation. The understanding that we are, at the same time, completely insignificant and a wonderous appearance!
It has been this steady maturity of consciousness that underlies our continuing interest, curiosity and desire to reach towards the fundamental nature of our being.
