Description




SACRED SYMBOLS AND SACRED NUMBERS


PRESENTED BY DR IAN ELLIS-JONES


Dr Ian Ellis-Jones is a lawyer, educator and trainer, writer and speaker. A member of the Australian and New Zealand Mental Health Association, he lectured at the NSW Institute of Psychiatry to mental health workers for 14 years and at the University of Technology, Sydney to law students for 16 years. His interests include metaphysics, the psychology of religion, transformative ritual, mythology and addiction recovery

Symbols and Numbers transcend language and comminicate inner meaning. In the Middle Ages, when mystics had to hide much of their teaching from persecution they often used the word 'geometry' for what we now call metaphysics. The presentation will canvass the spiritual and symbolic significance of numbers (eg 1,3,7,12,and 40 not to mention quite a few others as well) as symbols (eg the circle,the triangle, the square,the five-pointed star, the Star of David, the cross, the pentagram, the tree of life, the yin yang symbol, the lotus, the dharma wheel and many others) in sacred and mythological literature.
