Each week, we investigate a universal aspect of existence where conflict and struggle are likely to arise.
Session One: Not Far from the Tree
In this first session, we examine the enigma of family, and how origins foment conflict in early life.
Session Two: The Riddle of Self
This second session is focused on contradictions of identity, and the fissures that arise in building a personal self.
Session Three: Belonging and Attachment
Next, we examine the nature of relationship and the countercurrents of the heart in love.
Session Four: At Home in the Body
In this lesson, we consider our relationship with the physical body, the ‘animal parts’ of who we are, and how to make peace with our so-called higher and lower nature.
Session Five: Live to Work or Work to Live?
We look at vocation and action in this session and the conflicts inherent to forging one’s destiny in the world.
Session Six: The World is On Fire
In this session, we look at how to relate to external conflicts including global unrest, violence, and the us-versus-them ethos on our divided planet.
Session Seven: On Being Mortal
This penultimate lesson focuses on insecurity, impermanence, and mortality as sources of conflict and unrest.
Session Eight: Wrestling With the Angel
In this final session, we examine our beliefs about spirituality and how they aid or hinder authentic living.
