Eternal Wisdom Weekend Retreat

Friday 2nd September 2016 Thru to Sunday 4th September 2016
Hawkwood College - Painswick Old Road, Stroud, Glos, GL6 7QW

This weekend retreat with RAVI RAVINDRA, is organised by the Wrekin Trust in collaboration with Hawkwood College. Professor Ravi Ravindra, PhD, is a spiritual visionary, scholar and leading international speaker on religion, science and spirituality. Ravi's search has led him to the teachings of Krishnamurti, Gurdjieff and Zen and to a deep immersion in the mystical teachings of Indian and Christian traditions. At the retreat you will explore with Ravi some of the concerns of eternal wisdom, including the nature of Ultimate Reality, the spiritual and material nature of the cosmos and the purpose of human incarnation. In particular there will be a focus on the subtle teachings of the two major streams of spirituality - the Abrahamic and the Indian and the suggestions which they propose for spiritual development. www.hawkwoodcollege.co.uk

The Three Faiths Forum

The Three Faiths Forum has worked to encourage harmony and confront prejudice for the last 14 years. Our objectives are to build lasting relationships between people of different faiths (and those of non-religious beliefs), to achieve a society where religious and cultural differences can co-exist through empathy, respect and engagement; and to encourage friendship, goodwill and understanding, especially between Muslims, Christians and Jews.

We are a non-religious organisation working with government, religious leaders, educators, students and other interfaith groups. The organisation was founded in 1997 by Sir Sigmund Sternberg, the late Shaikh Dr Zaki Badawi and Revd Dr Marcus Braybrooke, and was originally a forum where religious and community leaders could meet. Today we are an agent of change, actively promoting intercultural understanding and cooperation. We work in schools, universities and wider society, giving people the knowledge and skills to challenge stereotypes and misconceptions, communicate effectively and build new relationships with people from all cultural and religious backgrounds.
