Featured Speaker:Joe Vandermeer
Venue:The Blavatsky Lodge

Some Sacred Islamic Architecture – Joe Vandermeer

Presentation

We will examine the function of some architecture as a carrier of what is sacred, and we will look at some of the contributing elements. How does architecture affect us? What can it teach us? As our primary example, we will examine a building erected at the height of esoteric Islamic influence on Indian culture, the Taj Mahal, but will also examine additional structures containing various Sufi teachings. We will also look at some Fourth Way teachings by G I Gurdjieff about sacred architecture. There will be plenty of colourful slides to illustrate the material.

Presenter

Joe Vandermeer has been drawn to methods of inner development, especially those which combine the knowledge of science and philosophy with the wisdom of religions, psychology and mythology. His favourite material is drawn from various streams of esoteric science including the work of his former teacher Dr Philip Groves. Joe is currently the Director of the Swedenborg Centre where he welcomes any visitors who wish to explore and share their personal growth stories, insights and experiences over a cuppa, or online session.

Visitors are very welcome. A small donation is greatly appreciated - includes refreshments after the talk. Our large spiritual library is also open (10 - 5 pm) and you are welcome to browse.
