Talks And Concerts At The Study Society

Broadening Our Minds

Talks And Concerts

Truth and wisdom

Truth and wisdom can be found in almost any aspect of human endeavour, so at the Study Society we invite occasional presentations from accomplished members and invited guests. These can range from artists and scientists to philosophers and mystics. In the study of non-duality, everything can contribute. Such talks are open to the public as well as members.

There are also occasional concerts, ranging from classical recitals by pianists and string quartets, to jazz, Indian classical and Sufi devotional music. In addition, Colet House often hosts events, many of which are open to the public, from other like-minded organisations.

Past speakers have included: the archaeologist Lord Renfrew, physicists Professor Paul Davies and Sir Brian Pippard, artists Cecil Collins, Dame Ninette de Valois, Paul Robertson and Kaffe Fassett, Fr. Bede Griffiths, Anita Roddick, and many others. Recent speakers include Professor Bernard Carr, Dr Alan Wallace, Dr David Rousseau, Sir Richard Temple, The Reverend Lizzie Hopthrow, Dr Peter Fenwick, Rupert Spira, Marianne Rankin, Alan Forget, Dr Rupert Sheldrake, Dr Ian McGilchrist and Professor Chris Frith.

For forthcoming talks and concerts, see Events. In addition, recordings of many talks can be can be downloaded.

Sir John Tavener writes: “‘Towards Silence’ is a meditation on the four states of Atma for four string quartets and Large Tibetan Bowl.” The Study Society sponsored a private performance at Colet House in July 2009, just before the European Premiere in Winchester Cathedral. The Society also supported a performance as part of ‘Just This Day’ in November 2010. You can buy the CD from Amazon..
