About the Seminar

2pm Short Trips to Hell: Understanding Negative Emotions

We all know how unsettling and painful it is to be under the sway of negative emotions. They can destroy relationships and create havoc in society. This presentation will enquire into the very nature of fear, anger, jealousy, suspicion and pride, among other states, and point to the steadiness of mind which negativity of any sort cannot touch.

3pm Afternoon Tea

3.30 The Yoga of Theosophy

Theosophy is a comprehensive Wisdom-Teaching that includes an exploration of the laws and processes taking place in the universe and in us, but it is also a Wisdom that can be approached by individual experience. In the presentation we will consider the three steps in the Yoga of Theosophy: Listening, Reflecting and Meditating. The core principles of Theosophy.

There will be a shared lunch at 1pm for those who would like the opportunity to meet with Pedro in a more relaxed setting. Please bring a plate of vegetarian finger food to share.
