The Academy of European Arts and Culture ~ Rockland, is a dedicated group of seekers who are committed to the process of Awakening the Soul. Based upon the work of philosophers, artists, mystics, theologians and scientists throughout the centuries, each of whom have left a legacy that offers practical tools to live an enriched life.
During our meetings we discuss different topics related to the Awakening process, with a special emphasis on learning how to observe the parts of us that create obstacles to being present. We also study great men and woman throughout history who have awakened and left behind the gems of their process in various forms. Some of these souls include: Walt Whitman, Leonardo Da Vinci, Hildegard Von Bingen, William Shakespeare, George Gurdjieff, P.D. Ouspensky, Buddha, Rumi, Hafiz, St. Teresa de Avila, Rene Maria Rilke and Mervyn Brady to name a few.
The Academy creates an environment of study and verification through experience of awakening the soul and higher consciousness in order to live a life of balance and harmony in body, soul and spirit. The main effort in meetings is to achieve the silence and inner peace that is inherent within the Present moment. All true traditions and paths are connected in this desire and are welcome.
