Najaarsdag over het Johannes-evangelie: aanstaande zaterdag 15 oktober

October 12th, 2016

Hiermee willen we leden TVN en belangstellenden herinneren aan de studiedag over het Johannes-evangelie met David Nieuwejaers aanstaande zaterdag 15 oktober, onder de titel Het Levende Woord. Het wordt zonder twijfel een zeer boeiende dag. H.P. Blavatsky omschreef dit evangelie als een bij uitstek esoterische tekst. We worden uitgenodigd tot een symbolische verkenning van dit wonderbaarlijke geschrift.

Ontvangst met koffie is om 9.30 in de Besant Hall, Meentweg 9, 1411 GR Naarden

Day visitors are welcome at the seminar on Self-Transformation

July 14th, 2016

Only a few rooms are still available for the Seminar “Self-Transformation and the Spiritual Life” with Vic Hao Chin. If you still wish to join, please contact seminar administration.

Please note that alternatively, it is possible to attend as a day visitor. Registration in advance is not required. The daily fee will be EUR 20 for TS members and EUR 30 for others, coffee/tea included. You can take your own sandwiches.

On 17 July 20.00 hrs there will be a concert of the Lotichius Trio in Besant Hall, which is also open to those who do not participate in the seminar. Fee will be EUR 12.50. For more information (Dutch) see Concert van het Lotichius Trio in de Besant Hall

Before and after the concert of the Lotichius Trio, there will be a dance performance by Rani Art & Ballet school Marut Jorquera, a dance story: The Onion & The Lotus.

    “This modern jazz dance story explores the development of consciousness, the physical and psychologic mechanism related to the (eternal) soul, (perishable) body, and (curious) mind, their flourishing and decline. This development is experienced on a personal way and told by the choreography and dancers. The aim is to enlarge consciousness, to break through the ‘chatter of the mind’ and create food for thought for both dances and spectators and thus ponder over serious questions, including the essence of life.

    ‘The Onion’ represents the inner confrontation and challenges the human mind. Science, psychology, the human body and modern life are predominant. ‘The Lotus’ represents the flourishing of knowledge, love, beauty, spirituality and prosperity and aims to be practised through an utopic, enlightened and higher consciousness. Thus freedom of communication and dialogue on deeper aspects of life get a better chance to be dealt with and acknowledged.”

Film and Introduction on Albert Schweitzer: during the seminar, on Monday 18 July, there will be a short movie on Albert Schweitzer, entitled My Life is my Argument with an introduction by Isolde Sueltemeyer. Visitors are welcome to join for the evening without costs. The evening program will start at 19.30 in Besant Hall.
