Delight in an evening with famous mystic and poet Andrew Harvey! The evening lecture will be dedicated to a vision of the sacred marriage drawn from Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, and Sufi sources. The main concentration will be on Jesus’ outstanding vision of radiant embodiment as expressed in certain logions of the Gospel of Thomas. The sacred marriage between transcendence and immanence, light and dark, heart and mind, and body and soul is the key to the divination process. It is also the evolutionary birth that is struggling to take place against great odds in our contemporary dark night of crises. Understanding the Sacred Marriage’s radiant possibilities can give us hope, strength, passion, peace, and profound purpose.
Andrew Harvey will end his presentation with his vision of sacred activism; the most necessary sacred marriage for our time. His vision is that of a marriage of profound spiritual depth and energy with wise focused radical action. It is an action that touches every level–in order to help preserve the world and cooperate with the divine in birthing a new humanity.
