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, videos 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).

Besides Sarah and Peter Dawkins, the principals of Zoence, and co-teachers Almut Martini (Germany) and Caroline McCausland (England), our helpful team of teachers now includes Saira Salmon (England) and Oliver and Heidemarie Falldorf (Germany). Others assist from time to time, and many are involved in practicing the fundamental teachings of Zoence, particularly in the celebration of the eight solar festivals of the year, during each of which a Wheel of Life mandala is created, and initiatic geocosmological pilgrimages, in which the importance of place and time is recognised, heaven and earth brought together in consciousness, and the fundamental maxims of an initiate are practiced, namely:-

  • Loving, understanding and serving.

  • Doing the right thing in the right place, at the right time and with the right orientation or purpose.

  • Loving whatever you are doing, whoever you are with, wherever you are, all of the time.
