Is there a common core to spiritual experience?
Do these experiences offer proof of the existence of God or the possibility of survival after death?
These questions will be addressed by Marianne Rankin who writes ‘The spiritual consequences or fruits of Religious and Spiritual Experiences (RSEs) are profound. People are frequently transformed, life is never the same again. Although the intensity of the experience fades, the legacy is almost always one of a less materialistic and more spiritual outlook. ‘Marianne will consider the effects of such experiences in the lives of Sir Alister Hardy, (marine biologist, founder Religious and Spiritual Experience Research Centre) Ann Weatherall, (psychologist) Dame Cicely Saunders,(modern hospice movement) Edgar Mitchell (astronaut) and Jane Goodall (primatologist and anthropologist).She’ll also speak about how she came to write her book, An Introduction to Religious and Spiritual Experience which describes her fascinating findings from all over the world from past to present. There’ll be time to share your own experiences, questions and silence. Please bring a packed lunch – refreshments provide throughout the day. Places are limited. £25 – book now to reserve your place. 01227 830070iCal
