The Dream of the Cosmos: A Quest for the Soul with Anne Baring
Anne will give a talk on her widely acclaimed book: The Dream of the Cosmos: A Quest for the Soul. This is the story of a multi-layered quest to understand the causes of human suffering and to reconnect with a deeper reality than the one we inhabit in this physical dimension of experience. It seeks to answer the questions: “Who are we?” and “Why are we here, on this planet?”
It is offered to those who are looking for something beyond the superficial values of our culture, who may be disillusioned with religious and secular belief systems as currently presented, and who question political values which are deeply mired in the pursuit of power. It is written with two voices: one the voice of a personal quest and the other which explores the historical and psychological causes that have brought into being our present view of reality. Significantly, and in the context of current ecological and social challenges, Anne recognizes the urgent need to heal the split between spirit and matter, and for the return of the feminine. She calls for a radical and urgent transformation in our attitude to, and relationship with, the planet.
