Description

Homesickness of the Soul

On Saturday 20 January at 2.30pm we will hold a free public talk in London,

at the Holborn Citadines Hotel, 94 - 99 High Holborn, London, WC1V 6LF.


Our souls can hurt. They hurt in a dozen different ways. We can be fed up, bored, despairing, depressed, angry.
When our souls hurt enough, we become seriously ill. Whatever the medical diagnosis, the real sickness is a lack of wholeness or to be more precise Homesickness.


Unfortunately we don’t have hospitals where you can check in with distress of the soul, loss of meaning, and spiritual confusion.
In the paradigm of modern thinking, confusing self-care with auto repair, we think of illness as some body part not working properly.
It is doubtful if there will ever be a time when medical centers will cater to sicknesses of an entire, living, feeling, thinking, and relating person.

We all know what it’s like to have a sick soul. We might be stuck in a discouraging job or marriage.
We may be living in a part of the world that feels foreign and suffer from deep homesickness.
Given our spiritual conditioning we may believe that it is virtuous to suffer, and so we seek out experiences that cause you pain.
Some spiritual text may have convinced you that you are worthless, and so you cultivate feelings of guilt and enjoy them as signs of your futile searching

We are sick in the soul when we get swept away by the charisma of a teacher or a teaching and forget to subject them to our intelligence.


We are spiritually ill when you think it’s better to repress your emotions and desires than to enjoy life fully.
You may be harming your overall health when you seek out the pleasures of self-denial rather than the more open joys of allowing yourself some wholesome pleasures.
To understand what Home Sickness of the Soul really means then it will be necessary to explore where this homeland is and how the Soul came to be on this planet in the first place.

Using authentic Gnostic Christian texts of the first few centuries, allied with the insights of the Golden Rosycross, we invite you to explore together this theme.

The Public Talk will be followed by a Contemplative Meeting open to all, at 4:30pm.

The purpose of the Contemplative Meeting is to give seekers the opportunity to experience the atmosphere and the spiritual work of the School. During the contemplative meeting we reflect on a topic relevant to seeking humankind and consider this in the light of the teachings of the spiritual School.
