THE IMAGINAL COSMOS: Community Arts and Education short course



Community Arts and Education short course

Tutors: Angela Voss and Geoffrey Cornelius

Date: Thursday 2 February

(8 sessions, 10.30am – 1pm)

Nearly everyone has a ‘sixth sense’ that finds meaning in life events apart from rational explanations, and yet this intuitive experience has no place in our institutions of learning or science. This has not always been the case, and in this 10 week course you will investigate the history and practices of this sixth sense.

Our exploration ranges from psychic communication and spiritualism to symbolic interpretation in popular forms of divination such as astrology, I Ching and Tarot. What is the role of imagination, and in what way is this knowledge ‘real’? Does it suggest an intelligent Cosmos?

Starting with the Western tradition coming down to us through Plato, we follow the Renaissance rebirth of ancient wisdom through to contemporary New Age spirituality. Adopting the metaphor of the two brain hemispheres and their different orientations towards reality, we look at the bridge between rational and non-rational knowledge, allowing intuitive and creative insights to inform our experience.

Cost: £85 (excluding lunch)

Venue: Canterbury Christ Church University Campus,

Time: 10:30
