"The Meditating Brain, a Challenge of the Digital Revolution" is a seminar about our nervous system, how our brain processes information and creates our reality. Using a reductionist approach we will study the neurons; the sense organs; the brain, it's structures and the different areas of the cortex; consciousness and self - awareness; memory; meta cognition; the development of the nervous system of animals and the Homo Sapiens brain. How our brain processes the information in digital and analog modes. We attempt to bridge science and philosophy, and some of the subjects studied by Theosophy in interactive discussions. The creative brain, holistic, artistic, intelligent, is a challenge to the digital revolution. The urgency of creating a radically New Culture for mankind.

Recommended reading: will be given after registration

ABOUT THE SCHOOL OF THE WISDOM

 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The School of the Wisdom aims at bringing each student to survey life ‘from the centre’, which is intuitive awareness. There can be no Wisdom without an ever-increasing sense of Wonder. Essential in the progress towards Wisdom is a growing intimacy with all aspects of Nature.

The SOW was inaugurated in 1949 by C. Jinarajadasa, the fourth International President of the TS, to revive the 1922 Adyar School initiated by Annie Besant. This school was named Brahmavidyā Āśrama, which has almost the same meaning as the School of the Wisdom.

ONLINE classes
Weekly: Monday, Wednesday and Friday

SOBRE LA ESCUELA DE LA SABIDURÍA

 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

La Escuela de la Sabiduría tiene como objetivo llevar a cada estudiante a examinar la vida "desde el centro", que es la conciencia intuitiva.  No puede haber Sabiduría sin un creciente sentido de Maravilla. Esencial en el progreso hacia la Sabiduría, es una creciente intimidad con todos los aspectos de la Naturaleza.

La SOW fue inaugurada en 1949 por C. Jinarajadasa, el cuarto presidente internacional de la ST, para revivir la Escuela Adyar de 1926 iniciada por Annie Besant. Esta escuela se llamó Brahmavidyā Āśrama, que tiene casi el mismo significado que la Escuela de la Sabiduría.
