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.)

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).
