An audience with Sattwa (light) workshop – 15 Oct 2017

This term’s ‘Next Step’ workshop will take place on Sunday 15th October and is entitled…..

An Audience with… Sattwa (light)
workshop / study day

at Newland House, Edgbaston, Birmingham

For students from Part 4 (Presence of Mind) onwards, i.e. currently studying the modules: presence of mind, action, knowledge or are in the intermediate group

On Sunday 15th October 2017, 9 30am to 4 00 pm

Cost £22 including vegetarian buffet lunch and all refreshments

Although all 3 energies (Guna) are always present and available, the current play of creation is largely governed by Rajas (activity) and Tamas (regulation). Whilst we cannot change the dominating guna within the creation, we can observe what is governing ourselves at any one time and if appropriate take steps to lessen the effect of the dominating guna or even change it.

(Note: The English translations used here for Sattwa, Rajas and Tamas are very ‘loose’ and general. As they are qualities of energy their full meaning can only be properly understood in experience)

We shall spend the day discussing, reflecting and observing the play of the Guna within society and ourselves. This will be a very practical down to earth enquiry with a light (sattwic) touch.

The workshop is on Sunday 15th October 2017. The school will be open from 9am for coffee, tea and biscuits with the workshop starting at 9:30am and finishes at approximately 4pm. The tutor for the day will be Stephen Davy.

The cost for the day to include all refreshments including a beautiful vegetarian lunch is £22.

The effect of a day like this is always light, peaceful and uplifting and it is a marvellous opportunity to practice philosophy in the good company of like minded people.

Students are encouraged neither to accept nor reject the ideas put forward, but to test them in practice for themselves, in the light of their own experience.
