Self-knowledge? Unity of Existence? Truth? Love? Beauty?

October 8 – January 28, 2017

What is the single most important point that must be understood by a person who wants to know?

A series of seven themed explorations at the Salisbury Centre, Edinburgh.

Event Description

Each session will incorporate study, meditation and group discussion, allowing
 all the participants to share their experiences and their insights. Although each session is complete in itself, attending more sessions may help to develop a deeper awareness of ‘the single most important point’. Everyone is invited to develop their own understanding of the question posed by the series title, and of the course materials.

Two facilitators will guide and support the course participants in their understanding
 of the content and its relevance to their lives.

The themes of the seven sessions will be:


  • One Existence
  • Union
  • Knowledge
  • Love
  • Service
  • Education
  • Integration
