There's a new edition of Candela out (September 2020). Follow the links in this column further below.
NEW SWEDENBORG 'ROADMAP' AVAILABLE! - FREE DOWNLOAD
There is a brandnew Swedenborg Roadmap available to read (or download, etc) which has been updated with all sorts of goodies on Swedenborg, including a reader's guide to his books with outline summaries, key Swedenborg concepts, clickable links to key references (you can even click any Table of Contents item to go directly to the relevant page). Which is a great improvement on the old edition. Thanks to many people who have made this useful update possible. Click here to access it ( or follow the menu above to EVENTS, FREE STUFF --> Free Audio... --> Brochures introducing practices... --> Presenting Swedenborg A Roadmap ). Printed copies are $10 plus postage. Enjoy!
COME TO VISIT THE CENTRE OR CONNECT TO EVENTS ONLINE
Most of our online activities have been well attended and therefore will continue, even thought the Swedenborg Centre is open for visitors. For event details, see the column on the left. To connect to online events, please request a Zoom link to be emailed or texted to you for the event you wish to participate in (my email address is shown under each online event). Zoom is an online connection platform that is very easy to use and familiar to most people (let us know if you need help setting up or connecting with Zoom).
CURRENTLY ON DISPLAY (TO INVITE DISCUSSION)
The latest 'installation' at the Centre is receiving a lot of attention. The previous installation of the Tree of World Religions from The 40 Foundation has come off our wall, replaced by the Cognitive Biases Codex, which is an excellent conversation starter. How well do we really know ourselves? Why would we want to examine ourselves, and how? We've gone from a 'tree' display to a 'thinking-feeling' map, which seems apt, since a tree signifies perception (AE828) and our organ of perception is the brain. Click on the images below to see either of these displays close-up:
For an explanation of the biases listed in the codex, see here.
We have just upgraded to NBN. Yay!! It's super fast. Thanks to some fabulous teamwork and service (plus a great package) from Aussie Broadband. If you're thinking of changing providers, let us know if you would like a referral from us. Aussie BB have been good to us.
We are planning to change the website before end of October 2020, so keep your eye out for improvements and changes around then.
