The Weighing of the Heart

Nov 19

Martin Leiderman

(On site and Zoom)

Saturday 2 – 4 pm PST

In The Egyptian Book of the Dead, we find the soul pondering upon and contemplating a judgment scene where its heart – repository of all his or her deeds and thoughts done during life – is being weighed or balanced against one feather (the feather being a symbol of Universal Law, Justice, and Dharma or Duty).  In this seminar, illustrated with slides, we will study this mystical moment and its implication for our life.  We will refer to the teachings of Eastern and Western traditions such as Theosophy, Plato, Alchemy, Esoteric Christianity, Tibetan Buddhism and pre-Columbian mythology.

Single session $15 Full day $25 (includes Bianchi program)
