This course/workshop will explore the deep connections, as well as the boundaries, between the arts, science and the sacred. It will explore the ways in which the artist and the scientist engage the universe and encounter mystery. It will touch on the sense of awe and wonder that many scientists experience about the cosmos. It will look at ways in which the arts have sought to portray, symbolize and point to the sacred. It will enquire into the nature of creativity.
Ideas provides a doorway into the ideas and writings of F. David Peat.
Mind & Culture deals with human consciousness, our world-views and the societies we build. These include Indigenous world views and new forms of non-violent social action.
Science deals with the hard sciences, including Chaos Theory, Quantum Theory, and the methodology and philosophy of science.
Bridges the interconnections between ideas, including reflections on language, art and the connections between mind and matter. Thi section also includes speculations and ideas in the process of development.
Many of these ideas are currently being explored at the Pari Center for New Learning. You can explore some of these ideas with David Peat in person by visiting the Pari Center or taking one of David's courses in Pari, Italy. For further information.
David Peat will be running a course on Synchroncity from 30 June -7 July 2003.

Courses and Workshops
The Center will be offering three courses during 2011. These courses and workshops reflect the Center's vision and philosophy. Courses will run in the morning and late afternoon, leaving time after lunch for a siesta, quiet reflection or a walk in the surrounding countryside. Generally because new ideas can be a little exhausing the Monday morning will aside for sightseeing, such as a visit to Siena.
We are happy to help those who wish to gain continuing education or professional development credits and will contact their organizations if requested.
Accommodation and all meals, traditional Tuscan cooking, are included in the price of the courses. To register for a course, participants must send in a non-refundable deposit.

New Paradigms, New Science and Gentle Action May 19- May 25 2011
This course/ workshop will explore the paradigms and stories that are told by science and ask what impact they are having on our lives, society and values. Are we beginning to see the world in new ways? Is a new form of thinking emerging? How are the visions of the artist and the scientist related? Are we moving towards a new integration of knowledge? How does this change the way we think about ourselves and our society? The course also explores David Peat's ideas on Gentle Action and Creative Suspension.
The scientific ideas involved will be explained and explored in a non-technical way. This course is suitable for anyone interested in the history and evolution of ideas, and in obtaining a deeper understanding of modern science. It has been offered every year since 2001 and has given rise to many stimulating and productive discussions.
Synchronicity: The Bridge between Matter and Mind June 23-30 2011
The course/workshop will explore the nature of synchronicity and the connections between our subjective, internal world and the objective, external. The week will introduce some key ideas from depth psychology. Archetypes as the structuring principles of the psyche are compared to notions of an underlying implicate order to reality as discussed by the physicist David Bohm. The therapeutic encounter will be viewed as an alchemical vessel in which “frozen accidents” to the psyche can be melted and transformed by generating psychic heat. In the field of literature we will meet James Joyce’s notion of an epiphany – that moment when meaning coalesces into the world – and the poet and priest Gerard Manley Hopkins also wrote of inscape, the authentic and individual voice within the natural world that speaks to us directly.
