Empowered by the skills and knowledge acquired throughout their learning and combining them to their own personal journey, our trainers weave their own thread into the fabric of Gaia Education’s world work.

Theosophy – Ancient Wisdom Applied to Modern Times

Facilitator: Eduardo Weaver

Theosophy – Ancient Wisdom Applied to Modern Times

22 February 2018

Time: 9am California, 3pm Brazil, 5pm UK, 6pm Spain 

The word Theosophy was used for the first time in ancient Greece. It means Divine Wisdom, a universal wisdom that does not belong to any creed, but is the rootless root of all religious and philosophical traditions. Theosophy can be understood as the wisdom of the heart, a wisdom that can only be grasped through meditation, when the mind is still. The Gaia Education holistic worldview is totally in tune with the Theosophical Teachings that propose the interdependence of all things and the unity of life. The time is right to embrace a new consciousness of peace and cooperation.

In this webinar you can…

  • Learn about Theosophy, the Ancient Wisdom that is the root of all religions;
  • Understand how this unitary view of life has influenced great leaders, philosophers and scientists like Gandhi, Krishnamurti and Einstein;
  • Know how the theosophical way of life is contributing to create a new consciousness of trust, cooperation and peace.

Regenerative Development and Design in Practice

May 2018 – more details to come

Get to know Peter…

Peter’s favourite quote: “If we learn ways to practice love, compassion, joy, and equanimity, we will know how to heal the illnesses of anger, sorrow, insecurity, sadness, hatred, loneliness, and unhealthy attachments…Love, compassion, joy, and equanimity are the very nature of an enlightened person. They are the four aspects of true love within ourselves and within everyone and everything.” Thich Nhat Hahn

Peter is a cultural creative, working as a radical evolutionary activist and change agent through the use of whole systems, transition and regenerative design to provide support through integral and participatory facilitation for individuals, groups, neighbourhoods, communities and organisations, so we can cocreate and codesign a sustainable future of regenerative and thriving cultures, places, environments and local, but globally-networked, livelihoods.

What all our students share, is a hunger to find a place and space to act as agents for positive change.
