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.)

Zoence Academy & Mystery School

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

Although the previously advertised FBRT seminars in July and September this year at St Albans had to be cancelled (due to ill-health, hopefully temporary), instead the FBRT will be substituting two Pilgrimage Reunion and Remembrance days on the same dates and same venue (Sunday 21 June 2015 and Sunday 20 September 2015). This is to give the opportunity for those who were pilgrims on any of the main FBRT pilgrimages (1992-2014), and others who might be interested, to come together and remember, share and gain a wider knowledge or overview.

The FBRT Wisdom of Shakespeare Weekend (11-12 July 2015) remains cancelled.

However, the planned 'The Corner Stone of Harmony' Zoence Exterland Zodiac Summer School (4-5 July 2015) in Germany will still take place, but led by Almut Martini, in German and under the title Der Eckstein der Harmonie.

In September there will be the Zoence 'Fire and the Rose' Iona Retreat Week (4-11 Sept 2015). This is fully booked, but often it is worth being placed on the waiting list in case someone who has booked finds that he or she has to 'drop out' due to unexpected circumstances.

The next FBRT Round Table Discussion Group Day at St Albans will take place on 1 Nov 2015, the topic for discussion being 'Bacon's Life in the Light of Truth'. All are welcome.
