The descent of spirit into matter and its subsequent return to source is described by both classical esoteric teachings and the major religions of our world. The ‘homeward journey’ to the source of one’s being is commonly referred to as the ‘spiritual path’ or ‘path of return.’ It is by treading the spiritual path, whereby one adopts spiritual practices and disciplines as a means of establishing union with the Soul or Higher Self, that one becomes aligned to the rhythms of our universe and capable of expressing its evolutionary intent.|
In this presentation, Gary shall outline the requirements, challenges and the practices related to the treading of the spiritual path in the light of the classical teachings of Ancient Wisdom; the psychological approach of Carl Jung and Roberto Assagioli; the symbolism of myth and eastern religious teachings and practices.
