The Teachings of Ancient Wisdom

The Awakening of Spiritual Consciousness and the Teachings of Ancient Wisdom

In this presentation, Gary Kidgell will outline the philosophical approach expounded by what is known as the ‘wisdom teachings’. He will demonstrate the value of this particular ‘model’ of creation, and of the human psyche, in relation to the process of spiritual transformation.  This assists our understanding of what occurs in our consciousness when we are treading the ‘spiritual path’.

Gary Kidgell has studied various forms of esoteric spirituality for the last thirty-five years.  He is a professional astrologer specialising in esoteric or soul-centred astrology.  Gary has lectured extensively on various esoteric subjects within the UK and Europe.  His acclaimed book, The Inner Journey: Pathways to the Higher Self, has been distributed internationally.  Gary is a member of the Dundee Theosophical Lodge and a former Organising Secretary for the Society in Scotland.

This, the second of three sessions on the theme of ‘Exploring Spirituality’ is intended to be of interest not only to Quakers, but also other spiritual seekers.   All are welcome.  Admission is free, but donations towards the QMH expenses will be gratefully accepted.   Each session will probably comprise a talk, questions and answers, sharing experiences and discussion, and a time of meditation or silent worship.    They will take place monthly on a Saturday afternoon, from 2.30–4.30 pm.   Tea/coffee will be available for a modest charge from 2.00 - 2.30 pm.
