Welcome to Zoence

Pathways to Wisdom:
Core Truths of the Western Wisdom Traditions

Zoence draws on and synthesises the essence of the ancient Wisdom traditions, and presents the core truths with new discoveries and insights for the world of today and tomorrow.

In particular Zoence seeks to develop a practical understanding of the relationship between the natural, human and spiritual worlds, and the skill of being good 'actors' upon the 'stage' of the world: in other words, how to do the right thing in the right place at the right time and with the right orientation or purpose. (See About Zoence.)

The Academy teaches via talks, seminars and workshops (see Events), plus information sheets (see Info Sheets), books, DVDs, CDs, and study papers (see Publications).

The Mystery School provides practical and mystical experience of all these truths, and more, via the special events and geocosmological pilgrimages (see Events).

Latest News

A programme for most of the main events next year (2015) is now posted online in the Events page, and details about most of them are now available.

Please note especially the Zoence Mystery School Week ('The Gnostic Serpent': 9-16 May 2015) which books up quickly as there are a limited number of places, and the Iona Retreat Week ('The Fire and the Rose': 4-11 Sept 2015) for which there is a reduction if booked before 27 February 2015.

Please also note that there will be no Mystery of Shakespeare event in Italy in 2015, but the hope is that there will be one in spring 2016; and that we have decided not to create a Swan Line Pilgrimage in 2015, but to postpone it to another year

The ‘Gnostic Serpent’ Mystery School Week will take place in Dumfrieshire, Scotland, the throat chakra area of the British Isles major chakra system.This mystery school week will be the fifth in a seven-year series of Zoence Mystery School weeks visiting in turn each of the major chakras, from root to crown, of the British Isles landscape temple.

The 'Fire and the Rose' Iona Retreat Week will explore the theme of the redeeming power of love and its operation in the world in the present time—something that the great inspirer and founder of the New Age movement, Sir George Trevelyan, referred to as “Operation Redemption”. These wisdom retreats have always been very popular and something of an initiatory experience. Iona is the isle of rainbows and angels, where the veil between the natural and spiritual worlds is very thin. It also has a remarkable landscape temple layout that provides a special stage for experiencing and enacting the mysteries. (There is a reduction in cost for those who book before 27 February 2015.)

The FBRT solar festival events (seminars, discussions groups, day events) will take place in St Albans next year, instead of in London as in previous years. St Albans is not only home to St Alban's Cathedral, shrine of Britain's first celebrated Christian martyr, St Alban, and to Gorhambury, once the family residence of Sir Francis Bacon, Viscount St Alban, but also a key place in the history, mythology, religion and esotericism of Britain. Much is planned to be revealed there.
