About

The theme for our meetings this term is presence of mind. When the mind becomes still and quiet there can sometimes be a connection with the underlying and unchanging existence.

. . . . . . . if we wish to attain what we are seeking . . . . let us not be moved or distracted by many things, but let us remain in unity as much as we are able, since we find eternal unity and the one eternity, not through movement or multiplicity, but through being still and being one. (Ficino Letters IV; 5)
