Ancient and primitive cultures conceived the whole cosmos as alive and sentient. In the West, the mainstream approach of our contemporary culture has shifted from this way of being towards an ever-greater separation of matter and mind. Today’s dominant scientific world-view is based on an essentially materialistic representation of reality. But paradoxically, as we have gone deeper into the exploration, the concept of abstract matter itself has in some sense vanished, leaving us with a universe of possibilities rather than…Find out more »

We will use the Eranos I Ching, an innovative translation by the sinologist Rudolf Ritsema and Shantena Augusto Sabbadini, the fruit of fifty years of…Find out more »
What is time? It is at the same time what is closest to us and the deepest mystery. So close we cannot step outside it and watch it from a distance. And actually, when we attempt to do so, the notion of time itself seems to fade away, to dissolve into timelessness, where past, present and future merge into an eternal instant.

This seminar is an invitation to wonder and be grateful for the adventure of life and for the mystery of which we are part. We and the world are expressions of the same creativity of existence, waves in the ocean of consciousness. Embracing our oceanic nature is the way to find peace on an individual and a collective level.Find out more »
If we have a wider range of ideas, knowledge and expressions to tap into, we would probably be better equipped for developing a way of living that contributes to the wellbeing of everyone in harmony with our Earth. Can we find ways to cooperate with the earth, with wisdom rooted in other worldviews then ours and with ideas born and nurtured in other communities, disciplines, cultures and places?
This year’s Weekend Among Friends is a tribute to the other and elsewhere.
