Map of Meaning: How to put Jordan Peterson's teachings into practice
"An empty pageant; a stage play; flocks of sheep, herds of cattle; a tussle of spearmen; a bone flung among a pack of curs; a crumb tossed into a pond of fish; ants, loaded and labouring; mice, scared and scampering; puppets, jerking on their strings - that is life. In the midst of it all you must take your stand, good-temperedly and without disdain, yet always aware that a man's worth is no greater than the worth of his ambitions." Marcus Aurelius Can we transform our inner Muppet, Muggle, Victim and Addict into their opposites? Can we live a virtuous life based on the archetypal qualities of the Warrior Monk and the Philosopher King? Can we break the cycle of our own "default mode network" and escape from the Matrix? Come and take the red pill in good company at The Haelan Centre in Crouch End, every other Monday from 7pm to 9pm. "All the blessings which you pray to obtain hereafter could be yours today, if you did not deny them to yourself. You have only to have done with the past altogether, commit the future to providence, and simply seek to direct the present hour aright into the paths of holiness and justice: holiness, by a loving acceptance of your apportioned lot, since Nature produced it for you and you for it: justice, in your speech by a frank and straightforward truthfulness, and in your acts by a respect for law and for every man's rights. Allow yourself, too, no hindrance from the malice, misconceptions or slanders of others, nor yet from any sensations this fleshly frame may feel; its afflicted part will look to itself. The hour for your departure draws near; if you will but forget all else and pay sole regard to the helmsman of your soul and the divine spark within you - if you will but exchange your fear of having to end your life some day for a fear of failing even to begin it on nature's true principles - you can yet become a man, worthy of the universe that gave you birth, instead of a stranger in your own homeland, bewildered by each day's happenings as though by wonders unlooked for, and ever hanging upon this one or the next." Marcus Aurelius

What we're about

Cosmic Consciousness is a state of profound identity with all existence. It is possible to cultivate this awareness through meditation on the seven levels of the Ray of Creation: Emptiness, Energy, Form, Life, Soul, Planet, Universe. Through the active use of the Imagination and initiation into the mantra, you will learn to connect with yourself more fully at all levels and connect with your innate Cosmic Consciousness.

Earth Medicine is a shamanic approach to the natural environment, using the energy of Nature for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing and wellbeing. It involves focused sensory and somatic experiencing, and expressive shamanic movement, breath and voice techniques.

Cosmic Consciousness classes are held every Wednesday evening from 7-8pm at The Stress Project, 2 Shelburne Rd, London N7 6DL. Earth Medicine classes are held in green spaces in and around London.
