Our sister group, “SEEKERS Anonymous – DC Metro”, will be meeting again on Monday, August 26, for Week 6 of the “Peeling the Cosmic Onion: A Journey of Spiritual Transformation” series! The topic will be “The Mystery of Consciousness”.

Our last meetup sent us on a journey into the cosmos as we discussed three perspectives on the origin of the Universe: the Big Bang Theory, including the background of the theory, its predecessors, and the mysteries that still surround it; the Anthropic Principle, which questions why various factors of our Universe seem so fine-tuned for the emergence of human life; and the die-hard Concordist viewpoint of Dr. Gerald Schroeder, in which he attempts to stretch the literal 6-day creation week suggested by the Jewish Torah into the considerably longer history of the Universe science acknowledges today (but misses the mark by 1.4 billion years).

So now we turn our attention toward the even greater mysteries of Consciousness. A casual observer might suggest that we are reversing course, turning back from our ever-expanding view of ourselves and the Universe, moving from the mind-bendingly large phenomena of galaxies and black holes to a very small & insignificant epiphenomenon arising in human brain matter. But is that really the case? Are we truly inverting our perspective from the Universal to the Individual, from an expansive awareness of the world to a subject confined entirely within a few pounds of tissue in a tiny, bony cage? Or could it be that we are still travelling outward, toward a view of Consciousness that is even more fundamental and more Universal than the visible, material Universe itself?

Please consider joining us at Ridgetop Coffee & Tea in Sterling, starting at 7:00pm on Monday, August 26, as we examine the most basic scientific instrument we possess, the only way in which we can examine anything, and perhaps, the greatest cosmic mystery of all – Consciousness.

Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you on August 26th!
