In his meetings, Rupert explores the perennial, non-dual understanding that lies at the heart of all the great religious and spiritual traditions, such as Advaita Vedanta, Kashmir Shivaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Mystical Christianity, Sufism, Zen etc., and which is also the direct, ever-present reality of our own experience. This is a contemporary, experiential approach involving silent meditation, guided meditation and conversation, and requires no affiliation to any particular religious or spiritual tradition. All that is required is an interest in the essential nature of experience, and in the longing for love, peace and happiness around which most of our lives revolve.

Rupert Spira is a spiritual writer and teacher in the branch of Non-Duality (Advaita, in Sanskrit), exploring the nature of experience in his essays and texts. He has published a book (The Transparency of Things, Non Duality Press, 2008). He holds regular meetings and retreats in the UK, Europe and the US. Part of his talk about Non Duality is included in video game The Witness.

What is the Purpose of the Great Pyramid by Robert Bauval
Saturday 11th March, 2 – 4.30 pm

bauval-pyramidHundreds of theories to explain the purpose and function of the Great Pyramid of Giza have been proposed, from the prosaic “tomb theory” to the very controversial “machine theory”, “Atlantis theory” and “aliens theory”. Yet most of these theories generally ignore the intense astronomical and mathematical coding that is incorporated in the design and alignment of this extraordinary monument, as well as the cosmology expounded in the Pyramid Texts. Uncannily, the astronomy provides a specific “address” in our Milky Way Galaxy, and the mathematics provides irrational constants, ratios and prime numbers which, together, strangely resemble the “universal language” of science. Furthermore, the cosmology derived from the Pyramid Texts uncannily resembles modern scientific cosmologies and the latest cutting-edge ideas in quantum physics and neuroscience. In his talk Robert Bauval will explore the possibility of “Intelligent Design” in relation to the Great Pyramid, and will postulate that this monument, as well as the whole Giza ensemble including the Sphinx, may be the quintessential ‘message in a bottle’ across time and space.

Robert Bauval was born in Egypt in 1948. He completed his building engineering studies in England at the University of the Southbank (1969-73). In 1983 Bauval developed the Orion Correlation Theory (OCT) and published his first paper in 1989 in the Oxford Journal Discussions in Egyptology. His first book The Orion Mystery (1994) was a No.1 bestseller and is in more than twenty-five languages. His has since written fifteen other books on related subjects, and is currently working on a book with astrobiologist Dr. Chandra Wickramasinghe. Bauval has appeared on TV channels worldwide.
