Esoteric Philosophy Public Talk
22 May 2015

Friday 22 May 8.00pm

Walking the spiritual path requires that we recognize the changing nature of vision in our lives. We are not here referring to the sightedness conveyed by our two eyes, but the vision of the soul as revealed through the third eye. Sometimes called the Eye of Vision, this organ of perception slowly opens over the course of many incarnations. By so doing, it gradually gives us the capacity to sense the deeper truths expressed through our individual lives, as well as outer events. In this talk, William Meader will present a deep understanding of the Eye of Vision and how to recognize its influence within one’s day-to-day perceptions. He will also discuss methods to further facilitate its opening.

£7.00 / £5.00 concessions
