THE IMAGINAL COSMOS: Community Arts and Education short course

 

THE IMAGINAL COSMOS

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)

This event is open to the public.

Venue: Canterbury Christ Church University Campus,

Time: 10:30

Recent Academic Research on Astrology: THE 9TH HOUSE

THE 9TH HOUSE

Recent Academic Research

on Astrology

Recent years have seen a flowering of academic research on astrology, or topics related to astrology, unprecedented in the last three hundred years. This website exists in order to make as much as possible of this work available.

It will be limited to:

Ph.D. or M.Phil. theses from accredited universities.

Selected M.A. dissertations from accredited universities.

Work in English.

Work in either the humanities or social sciences. (Research attempting to locate astrology as effects with causes determinable by the physical sciences is a sufficiently different enterprise to belong somewhere else.)

Short notices about forthcoming books based on, or incorporating, theses or dissertations.

All Ph.D./ M.Phil. theses and short notices that are offered by their authors will be accepted that conform, in the Editor’s opinion, to the above criteria. Regarding M.A. dissertations, the final decision of what to include rests with myself, as the site’s editor.

Notices of Forthcoming Work by

Nicholas Campion

Geoffrey Cornelius

Patrick Curry

Dorian Gieseler Greenbaum

Liz Greene

Angela Voss

Finally, although it has no direct involvement with this website, the Sophia Trust deserves thanks for making much of this research possible through its generous institutional support at various British universities.
