ANZURA Conference – Canberra 2019

Theme: Mind Over Matter—Spirit Over Mind

A venue has been secured for the Australia and New Zealand (ANZURA) 2019 conference so mark your calendars for 27—30 September 2019!!

This conference will be hosted by the very capable “Canberra Crew” and our keynote speaker will be astrophysicist and long-time reader, Nigel Nunn.

About the Theme:

In the evolutionary superuniverses energy-matter is dominant except in personality, where spirit through the mediation of mind is struggling for the mastery. The goal of the evolutionary universes is the subjugation of energy-matter by mind, the co-ordination of mind with spirit, and all of this by virtue of the creative and unifying presence of personality. [Paper 116:6.1, page 1275.1]

It is pretty obvious that in the 21st Century there is considerable understanding of the ways in which the human mind has been subjugating matter. The industrial and technological advances of the previous couple of centuries have resulted in modern men becoming virtual worshipers of science, and many suggest that this will lead eventually to mankind’s complete understanding of the material world.

However, we need to remember that the Supreme requires that matter be subjected to spirit, and that mind is only the means to this end. This leaves science with the job only partially done, and unless that mind with which matter has been partially subdued is itself directed by spirit, with the motivation of personality, then nothing like complete understanding is possible.

Our object in this conference is to highlight this distinction.

The conference will be held at the Greenhills Centre in Stromlo, ACT just 20 minutes from Canberra’s central tourist attractions and a short distance from the Cotter Dam recreation reserve and Mt. Stromlo Observatory. Greenhills Centre lies in a picturesque and tranquil bush setting where you can enjoy mountain views and the friendly wildlife. It’s a great base to explore the beautiful Brindabella Ranges and to visit Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and Canberra’s Deep Space Station.
