NOA Community Centre (Ferry Centre)
Summertown, Oxford

What sets Christianity apart from most other religions is the mystery of the Incarnation; that Jesus was both Man and God and that His Being, as Corpus Christi, pervades the whole universe. In a wide ranging talk, Roger Woolger will look at the Gnostic, Platonic and esoteric underpinnings of Saint John's teaching that "the Word was made flesh" and he will draw illuminating parallels from Kaballah's Adam Kadmon and the Al'am al Insal or Perfect Man of Sufism. Roger believes that only such a truly holistic vision of the Divine Cosmos can challenge the moribund effects of body-mind dualism, Western alienation from the Mother as materia, and our currently fashionable neurology-based psychologies.

Roger J. Woolger, Ph.D., is a Jungian analyst, regression therapist and professional lecturer with degrees in psychology, religion and philosophy from Oxford and London Universities. He trained at the C.G. Jung Institute, Zurich. Born a British citizen, Roger has lived and taught Jungian and transpersonal psychology and comparative religion in many countries. Currently he commutes between Paris, London, Upstate New York and Brazil.

This talk will be followed by a two day workshop by Roger on "Mystics: What is Mysticism? Who are Mystics?" at The Abbey, Sutton Courtenay, on 17th-18th March (cost: £130 including lunch / teas / coffees). Further details at or contact Jane May on 01865 407996 or email
