People who have a regular spiritual practice tend to live healthier, longer, more content lives. Science sheds new light on many spiritual practices, including pilgrimages, meditation, chanting, prayer and rites of passage. Explore the interface and overlap of science and spirituality in Hollyhock’s beautiful, natural setting.

In this program we spend part of our time outdoors, in the garden, seashore and forest, learning how to reconnect with the world around us, and integrate understanding with direct intuitive experience. We explore spiritual traditions through our own experiences, and through singing, listening, looking, telling stories, thinking and having fun. We reflect on our connections with our ancestors and with the collective memory on which we all draw.

Rupert will show how morphic resonance enables us to understand rituals and mantras in a new way, and provides a new interpretation of memory and the survival of bodily death. Our minds are much more extensive than our brains, and can stretch out to affect people on the other side of the world, and even reach the stars.
