Understanding the Initiation of the ‘I’


  • Emerson College, Hartfield Road Forest Row, East Sussex RH185JX United Kingdom (map)

How can I awaken the inner forces to meet what life is asking of me?

How can inner development affect world development?

Many of the challenges we experience as humanity today give rise to reflection about what it means to be truly and fully human. If we engage with this question we very soon realise that to be fully human requires the recognition of the spiritual part of ourselves, our 'I'. During Understanding the Initiation of the 'I' you will learn about how the 'I' begins its initiation through developing the soul's capacities. You will have the chance to deepen your understanding of what takes place on the inner development path and you will learn about how inner development can have a transforming effect on the outer world, in which we all participate.

The course will offer active engagement in meditation exercises as well as inner schooling experiences, both of which lead towards transformation of the soul’s capacities into organs of spiritual perception and a living relationship with the spiritual world. Spiritual science allows us to evaluate our inner development and this is necessary to determine the steps we need to take.

Where am I un-free and where do I need liberation?

What is the next step I am being called to take in my life?

This three-day course, which will mostly be based on active experiencing, is for all those who realise that in order to be able to do what you have to do in the world, you need to inwardly prepare yourself and develop yourself. It can be strengthening to come together with others around our questions and challenges on the inner work path. Through sharing with each other we can find support for our individual journey and work in the world. Various meditations and inner development exercises have a definite purpose to strengthen certain capacities and grow certain faculties. You will learn to understand both where you are on the path of inner development and what the exercises work upon, so that you may be able to choose the meditations you need to take your next step and be your own guide on your journey. Course leaders Lisa Romero and Séamus Maynard are highly experienced in working with diverse groups of people and encourage you to bring your own questions to the course. They will shape the content and exercises around the questions, interests and needs of the participants, thus allowing the course to truly support each individual participant.
