7pm Explore and Understand our electromagnetic fields and your body -with LayLin
“The self, in a toroidal universe, can be both separate and connected with the rest of the universe.” - Arthur Young.
How much do we understand about electromagnetic fields (EMF) and their impact on our lives? Are all EMFs harmful? Should we be concerned? What do we need to be alert to and aware of, in terms of protecting ourselves from negative effects?
and another thing.... in LayLin's words..
Introducing an emerging understanding about the human energy field (biofield), and how this system relates to new and advanced theories such as Zero-Point Energy. Finally, a scientific approach that points to our cosmic connection to the physical Universe at one end of the spectrum and our divine connection to Higher Consciousness at the other end. This talk may give anyone interested in energy healing/integrative medicine, chakras, meridian system and spiritual consciousness - including healers, therapists, and practitioners of alternative healing modalities - another way to talk about these concepts with others.

When asked how to solve the problems between Great Britain and India, Gandhi said 

“When your country and mine shall get together on the teachings laid down by Christ on his Sermon on the Mount, we shall have solved the problems not only of our countries but those of the whole world”. Russell Sturgess served in various forms of ministry from his late teens until his early 30s.  Inspite of leaving organised religion, Russell actively used the teachings of the Sermon on the Mount as the foundation to his spiritual journey, even to this day.  His life devotion to Service, his work, is based on the Beatitudes from the Sermon.

Tonight’s talk looks at the various paradoxes in the Monolithic ReligionsThe Quran and the Bible both talk about an “eye for an eye” but they qualify this principle by saying it is best to forgive.

February 10th 7pm Sophia Street - Paul Robb

We will be Looking at various aspects of the body of wisdom called '' Theosophia '' that are capable of allowing us to delve deeply within ourselves ." Deep " embraces a sense of relaxed spaciousness which is an aspect that many esoteric traditions view as a foundation force in self discovery.Why is it a foundation force ? Because the Occult Path deals with Archetypal patterns and primal forces. So it is important to be able to chill down when it gets a little hot.

The Dweller on the Threshold and the Angel of Presence are archetypal patterns. They encapsulate both our negative and positive aspirational drives.

The movement from old definitions of self to new ones, leads to conflicts across a spectrum of areas within our psyche.

A Relaxed feeling of Spaciousness is a handy tool that gives a nice sense of equanimity on the journey


February 17th 7pm Adyar Day-the history and the question of relevance of this day 17th Feb to the Theosophical Movement

Looking at the theory of Zen and the practice of Zen, how it is different to ordinary Buddhism and the benefits of Zen.

I will remove the confusion about Zen and remove the confusion about Zen and explain how it fits into the Australian lifestyle

The journey has taken two decades. He travelled across Australia to remote community of Kimberley’s in W.A to live and learn the healing ways from this amazing medicine man and the indigenous ancestors.
