Based on the book Patterns of Creation: Logos and the Tree of Life in the Gospel of John by Stephen Pope
This course illuminates the spiritual teachings in the Greek – Aramaic text of the Gospel of John, so that they become for you the living reality that is beyond their symbols. Over ten weeks Stephen and Megan will help you to experience the spiritual truths contained within the original Greek – Aramaic Gospel for yourself, taking you beyond the everyday, unconscious mind, into your eternal essence.
This formless, eternal essence, which exists within the heart of every human-being, is called Logos in John’s Gospel, and usually translated as Word: Eternal Presence that contains and connects every living thing within the great circle of life.
Each week we will explore Stephen’s fresh translations from the text, and realize the profound spiritual truths that are contained within its rich symbolic language and sacred geometry of the Tree of Life. We look into the roots of these teachings in the Biblical Hebrew texts they originate from. Through meditation and contemplation, we will find deeper understanding of the Christos, and the figure of Joshua/Jesus, John the Baptist and restore Mary Magdalene to her key role within the Gospel teachings. She is the feminine face of the Christ, the central spine within, connecting the Divine and Spirit with the Soul, and Mind-body.
John’s Gospel tells us that spiritual awakening is freedom from fear, and complete release from the needless suffering that we inflict upon ourselves, each other, and the creatures of the natural world. As we awaken, we step out of the unconscious thought streams that dictate so much of our lives, and realize our natural state: knowing that all life is sacred, and we are intimately connected with the whole of life.
