Day 2: Lectures, Meditation and a Video

a. 45 min: LECTURE

“Searching for Harmony”

Richard Sell (New Zealand)

Everything in the world seems to resonate with a natural harmony, we see this in science and music, and this applies in a grand cosmic sense too.  As human beings we struggle to bring harmony to our planet and in our relationships with each other. The barriers to living a harmonious life are explored, looking at karmic aspects and our own behaviours which are driven ultimately from our personal perceptions and the worldview we hold. How do we find true harmony?

b. 20 min: MEDITATION

Meditation “Yoga of Light”

Kristin Lim (Singapore)

Guided meditation where we will bring awareness to the physical body, before raising our consciousness through a Yoga of Light

c. 45 min: LECTURE

“Love And Unity in a time of Individualism?”

Simon O’Rourke (Australia)

HPB taught in the Secret Doctrine that there are three simultaneous developments within the human being, the Spiritual, Mental and Physical, involving the perfection of the seven principles, and that the slowest of all to develop is the mental evolution. She informs us that in order for mind to develop, the spiritual life, which would make mental reasoning unnecessary, was gradually veiled in the slow process of evolution. We are now in an upward arc of the 4th of 7 Rounds covering the life of this planet, in the 5th of 7 sub-cycles, gradually learning about our psychological nature, kama-manas or desire-mind. And in the process we are learning to think individually. But can a mind living in the now maintain both a sense of individuality and a sense of Love, Compassion, kindness and Unity?
