The Anthroposophical Society invites you for a conference with ARTHUR ZAJONC PhD, author of “Meditation as Contemplative Inquiry – When Knowing Becomes Love” , September 11- 13 2009, At the Toronto Waldorf School.
Please see the bottom of this post for registration instructions.

INTRODUCTION TO THE THEME

“…The true goal of contemplative practice, indeed of life, is the joining of insight and compassion, wisdom and love. …Our time is beset by problems: environmental problems, social justice issues, homelessness, health disasters, inequities in education, hunger and poverty. These all require real-world solutions. Yet together with our tireless outer efforts, a comparable effort is needed to change who we are, to become, as Gandhi said, the solutions we envision for the world. We will need to find the means to engage in an inner work commensurate with our outer work.”
– Arthur Zajonc
PROGRAM

Public Lectures:

Friday – Sep. 11, 2009
7:30 PM – Public Lecture – Learning to See

Our conventional way of knowing is too small to allow us to experience and understand the full richness of the universe. What if knowing could be expanded to embrace all dimensions of life? How would this be done?

Saturday – Sep. 12, 2009
7:30 PM – Public Lecture – Learning to Love

We are born to love. Yet at each age of life we must learn to love anew. And at each stage that which we love opens itself to us. Through loving more fully, we know far more deeply.
