In this Learning Pack, we explore the ways in which we may come to better understand ourselves and others.
We use different lenses to explore who we are, how we are unique, and how we are connected with each other and the world around us.
Here are some of the lenses that we use:
Unity with the world – by knowing ourselves we can know the world – by understanding the world we can come to know ourselves.
2-foldness – various polarities – inner/outer – sympathies/antipathies – thinking/feeling – spirit/matter.
3-foldness – Body, Soul & Spirit – Head, Heart & Hands – Nerve-sense System (NSS), Rhythmical System (RHS) & Metabolic Limb System (MLS).
4-foldness – 4 Bodies (Physical Body, Etheric or Life Body, Astral or Emotional Body, Spiritual Being or ‘I’) – 4 Temperaments (related to 4 elements).
7-foldness – Soul types reflecting ‘Planetary’ qualities – of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter & Saturn.
12-foldness – Zodiac and Constellations of the Outer Cosmos.
Our ‘I’ is of central importance. This Spiritual part of us keeps the forces within us and outside us in dynamic balance.
Work through the Study Guide and Lectures within this Learning Pack, and you will gradually build a picture of the cosmic and earthly realities that impact on our individuality.
The Study Guide will also prepare you for small group sharing, whether that is part of our online sessions, or within a Study group.
