The Secret of Evolution

Public talk, 7.45 - 9.15 pm, 2 December 2019.

Featured Speaker:Pedro Oliveira
Venue:Hobart Branch

evolution from the point of view of consciousness

The word ‘evolution’ means change. Science tells us that life forms evolve by adapting to the surrounding environment. In this view, survival is of paramount importance. A Theosophical view, while not denying science’s assertions, suggests that evolution is a vast process of unfoldment of consciousness. This presentation will explore the purpose and the means of such an unfoldment.
