Light is so fundamental to our lives and life itself that we tend to overlook it. Yet our greatest spiritual figures, our most universally admired artists, philosophers and scientists have sought to penetrate its mysteries for thousands of years. This course will go to the heart of these explorations and ask quite simply: What is light?
In so doing it will not limit itself to a materialistic paradigm but create a bridge between the physical and metaphysical perspective on light. So not only will we explain and discuss the pathways that led to the paradoxes of current theories on light centred on quantum physics but we will look deeply into the insights and intuitions of ages past that have seen light as being fundamental to our own consciousness and human b-e-i-n-g.
In a world where terrorism, inequality, poverty, ecological disaster, war, corruption and mental suffering cast an overarching shadow through our daily intake of news and current affairs, this is the perfect time to 'turn to the light' and understand profoundly what that means.
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness, that most frightens us".
This course will draw inspiration from 'above' and 'below' to penetrate to the core of the mystery of light and its natural expression through beauty, reason and unconditional love.
