“Rudiments of the perennial philosophy may be found among the traditional lore of primitive peoples in every region of the world, and in its fully developed forms it has a place in every one of the higher religions.” - Aldous Huxley (The Perennial Philosophy).

Our ongoing Perennial Philosophy series led by Alan Roberts, looks into and beyond the history of the various world ideas that Huxley and other writers identified as ‘universal’, to explore the nature of similar descriptions of this Ultimate Reality, considering and exploring old and new methods being used to achieve its direct experience.

During previous retreats in this series we have looked at Cosmic Consciousness, Mysticism and Meaning, The Field and Remote Viewing. The focus of this weekend will be on practical applications of some of the ideas examined in the series so far. Further details will be added to this listing in due course.


Alan Roberts has been involved with Tan-Garth-Hall since its establishment in the early 1970’s. Originally mentored by Eugene Halliday he practises and teaches a range of subjects including yoga, perennial philosophy, art and Sacred Drama (a means to gaining a new understanding of relationships) across the North West. Along with his wife Vidah, he also hosts a spiritual healing group on the Wirral and is a member of the Eugene Halliday Association Committee.
