Dr Oliver Robinson – An introduction to sacred geometry and mystical mathematics

Geometry is a key foundation of science and technology, while also being an artistic form and contemplative focus within many spiritual traditions. This participative talk will introduce and explore some of the key figures and concepts of sacred geometry, and how they relate to key concepts in Pythagorean and Vedic mathematics, such as the golden ratio, Fibonacci sequence and Vedic Square. Attendees are asked to bring a pen, some paper, and a book or clipboard to lean on, so that they can participate in interactive activities that will bring the ideas within the talk to life.

Olly Robinson is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology, and writer on the interaction between science and spirituality. His book “Paths Between Head and Heart: The Seven Harmonies of Science and Spirituality” will be published in early 2018.

Dr. Oliver Robinson: ‘Both-and’ thinking: On embracing paradox in spirituality, philosophy and science

Dialectical ‘both-and’ thinking is key to resolving paradox and integrating ideas in ways that avoid reduction of one idea to the other. In this talk, the history of such thinking in the West and East will be explored, including the Chinese yin-yang model, Hegel’s dialectical reasoning, Jung’s exploration of opposites within alchemy and the psyche, Erikson’s dialectics of psychological development, dialectical behaviour therapy, and both-and thinking in quantum physics. A dialectical model of the relationship between science and spirituality will be discussed.
