David Lorimer – Towards a Culture of Love and Wisdom

Drawing on the evolution of consciousness, and in particular on the work of the Bulgarian sage Beinsa Douno (Peter Deunov, 1864-1944), this presentation will articulate the need for our culture of cleverness to be balanced by wisdom, the analytical mind by the loving heart. Despite superficial indications to the contrary, the world is on a convergent process bringing humanity together, although with respect for diversity and unique cultures. Globalisation is accompanied by ‘glocalisation’. We underestimate the power of Love as a Force rather than just a feeling and a potential inspiration for a global revolution in consciousness where we become aware of ourselves as an interconnected whole based on a realisation of the fundamental oneness of mind.
