Higher Consciousness - Its Nature and Awakening
Who are we? What is the purpose of life? How do we actualize our potential? These are questions that thoughtful people have asked since time immemorial. This session of the School of the Wisdom will present a comprehensive study of the teachings of H. P. Blavatsky and her Adept teachers on the nature of our spiritual essence, its evolutionary unfoldment, and what we can do in daily life to consciously participate in this cosmic process. The first part of the course will focus on the metaphysics and philosophy of the subject, while the second part will explore the practical application of the teachings, including exercises that lead to self-knowledge through awareness and meditation.
