Byron Sophia
Philosophical Group

Meetings every Thursday
1.30pm - 3.30pm, Marvell Hall

Marvell Street, Byron Bay (past Sports Field)

Byron Sophiā Philosophical Group means likeminded people sharing ideas and aspirations and delving into subjects that concern matters of the heart, soul and innovative thinking. The Greek word Sophia means Wisdom and can be seen as the personification of Nature's Intelligence, revealing our deep inner Knowing and our connection with All Life.

Research all over the world is advancing in the field of the human psyche and consciousness. Self-knowledge opens doors in the search of the common good. Each of us has a wealth of life-experience that can be shared for the benefit of all. This sharing allows us to lose our fears, our suspicions and power games. Realizing that at the root of things we are intimately connected in our humanity, we ask ourselves "how could I contribute to reaching this common good?"

The Byron Sophia is running a series of lectures, presentations and group dialogues on various subjects of spiritual, psychological and philosophical content. These are offered in a spirit of free exchange of thoughts and opinions. Anyone is welcome to give a talk, sharing what they may be passionate about. It is a nonprofit group depending on contributions to cover the cost of rent.

Each talk, including lively discussions, runs approximately for an hour and a half.
All interested in the "whys and wherefore" of life are welcome!
There is no membership fee.
Donation helps towards paying the rent of the venue.

THE KINGDOM TRILOGY. James Cowan, Internationally acclaimed author of over more than 40 books, has written a work which brings to life the intensity of rich inner experiences. He will open for us the second stage of this unfolding 13th Century tale. Although there is a continual stream linking the events in the story, yet each chapter reveals inner truths enriching the listener in unique ways. James invites us to listen to what once was a Troubadour’s presentation, mirroring a time of cultured and religious blossoming. On his return home, each character finds himself alert to new dimensions in the conduct of the spirit.
