Led by Dr Oliver Robinson

Light refreshments provided

 

We will explore the notion that science and spirituality represent two overlapping halves of a whole, and can be characterised by seven pairs of complementary opposites (outer/inner, impersonal/personal, thinking/feeling, empirical/transcendental, mechanistic/purposive, verbal/ineffable, explanation/contemplation). As well as being different, science and spirituality have a key common source in the modern ethos of innovation, experience-based knowledge and valuing individual questing/questioning. Oliver suggests that balanced human development can be facilitated by simultaneous personal exploration of both science and spirituality, for each corrects the tendency of the other towards extremes or hubris.

 

Oliver is Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Greenwich, amateur philosopher, and committed spiritual explorer. He is the author of Paths Between Head and Heart: The Seven Harmonies of Science and Spirituality as well as other books and co-editor of A New Renaissance: Transforming Science, Spirit and Society. He complements his intellectual work with spiritual dancing, meditation and cooking - this all helps to keep him sane, at least most of the time.
