Beyond Illusion: To Know Thyself – Colyn Boyce

Beyond Illusion: To Know Thyself

a zoom talk by Colyn Boyce

Sunday 24th July – 6pm UK Time

Ever since Man crawled out of the primordial slime countless millennia ago, the greatest minds have searched for a definitive explanation of the Nature of Reality. Various schools of thought have proposed that the phenomenal world is ‘maya’ – a magic show, an illusion where things appear to be present but are not what they seem.
The Ancients have told us that the goal of human existence is to ‘know thyself’ -which is to identify with one’s Divine Nature: a ‘place’ that is ever pure, ever perfect, ever unchangeable.
