The Path of the Eternal Pilgrim
This year's European School invites students to explore the broad perspective
of human evolution and spiritual perfectibility.
Starting from the arcane teaching that man is essentially an immortal monad, an individualized centre of Consciousness, we will consider the fundamental principles and operative laws behind our evolutionary pilgrimage.
Using H.P. Blavatsky's writings we will examine, in 10 lectures and 7 study sessions, how the progress of man describes a path of self-regeneration, a spiral passing from spirit into matter and returning to spirit again with a wholly self-conscious mastery of the process.
Each day the focus will be on one specific topic which allows us to have a lucid and coherent exploration of the whole theme.
Topics include the fundamentals of human evolution; the monad: the unity of every being; cycles of involution and evolution; the emergence of self-consciousness; the hymn of the pearl, a gnostic myth on our pilgrimage; planetary evolution and human solidarity, and practising the path of the bodhisattva.
Speakers and study leaders will include David Roef, Pablo Sender, Raphael Langerhorst, Janet Hoult
