Revelation: Holding the Mind Steady in the Light featuring William Meader - NE Theosophical Federation - CANCELLED

July 3-5, 2020, Friday dinner through Sunday lunch

Revelation: Keeping the Mind Steady in the Light
Due to its tendency to dismiss intuition, the mind has been called the Slayer of the Real. Though this title has much merit, it is, however, only a half-truth, for the mind is also humanity’s greatest gift. When rightly used, human thought has the power to reveal the soul’s wisdom and conveys a deeper meaning to the circumstances of life. As such, it is equally true to say that it is the Revealer of the Real. Indeed, the mind is the agent for the soul’s revelations.

To rightly experience the revelations emitted by the soul, it is important to “hold the mind steady in the light.” In this seminar, the mind’s intimate relationship with the soul will therefore be closely examined. We will consider its role as the receptive instrument for the revelation of light. The Light of Wisdom, the Light of Intuition and the Light of Life itself (to name just a few forms of spiritual radiation) will be closely considered. In addition, the inner bridge that facilitates revelation will be explored. Sometimes called the Antahkarana, this conduit is essential to the mind’s capacity to reveal the soul’s wisdom and guidance.

This seminar includes a wide variety of meaningful subjects, all of which have relevance to the nature and experience of revelation. Below are additional topics that will be presented and discussed. We hope you can join us.

• The revelatory nature of light.
• Intuition and the transformation of the mind
• The creative Art of Thoughtform Building
• Meditation - Holding the Mind Steady in the Light

Program fee: $100 and is a non-refundable deposit, to be paid in full at time of registration.

The Mystic Imagination of St. Francis of Assisi: All Things as Kin and Soul-Guides, featuring Gabriele Uhlein, OSF, PhD, NE Theosophical Federation - CANCELLED

Program Image: 
May 22-24, 2020 Friday dinner through Sunday lunch

** The Mystic Imagination of St. Francis of Assisi: All Things as Kin and Soul-Guides**

Join S. Gabriele for a weekend of delightful mystic exploration in the lineage of St. Francis of Assisi. Using vivid visual imagery, we will consider St. Francis’ Canticle of the Creatures: a beloved teaching that honors our kinship with all beings (no exceptions!) and recognizes the universal call of all things to divinely participate in the web of Sacred Creation. In the Franciscan world even “Sister Death” is honored and welcomed as a holy soul-guide. Saturday evening will include a participative festive ritual to honor all our ancestral kin and collective relationships. Come celebrate the great cosmic family as St Francis would!

Gabriele Uhlein, OSF, PhD is a Wheaton Franciscan sister deeply influenced by Hildegard of Bingen, Francis of Assisi and Teilhard de Chardin. She lives and works at the Christine Center, a natural sanctuary for seekers of all faith traditions that is committed to spiritual deepening for global transformation. (www.christinecenter.org)

As a retreat director and facilitator, S. Gabriele is nationally known for her practical spiritual perspectives, she has written articles for Franciscan journals, and continues to promote the profound connection between creation, contemplation, and compassion in everyday life. As the Franciscan scholar and artist-in-residence at the Christine Center, art and imagery is a large part of her spiritual guidance and spiritual deepening offerings.

Program Fee: $100 and is a non-refundable deposit.

The Northeast Federation (TSA) through the generosity of the Sellon Trust and our members will help with the cost of the room and board. Members of TSA in good standing as of 1/1/18 are eligible for this scholarship.

The scholarship will be $130. $75 will be due for balance of retreat.
