Synopsis: Participating in the Cycles of the Ages, Today.
It’s fun, instructive, entertaining, and certainly inspiring to learn about the Cycle of the Ages, explore ancient knowledge, and realize that the ancients knew more than we imagined! Yet it’s not all just academic or something that happened to other people in some other time:we ourselves are right now living right within that great cosmic cycle. How, then, can be we be active participants in the unfolding story of our ascending age, attuning ourselves to its upward trends and expanding awareness? How can we also attune ourselves to the perception of the ancients,helping us unlock further insights from ancient and modern sources alike?
With anecdotes and observations from history, current research, and his own wide-ranging experience, Satyaki will explore approaches such as cyclical vs. linear thinking, having faith in the Great Year, remembering where we are in the Great Year, raising energy awareness, seeing unity in diversity, and balancing analytical thinking with calm feeling, perception, and intuition.
