The British Teilhard Association

The British Teilhard Association promotes the work and vision of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin - a vision of love, of fire, of convergence, of a world in evolution energised by spirit, a vision of dynamism and direction - of a universe in movement towards its ultimate consummation or completion in a 'universal cosmic centre' or 'centre of centres'.

  • Where are we heading?  
  • What is the meaning of life?

Teilhard gives answers to these questions based on deep thought, reflection and mystical insight.

Are you on a quest that makes sense in our world - a world of change, a cosmos in evolution? If you are, this is the site for you.

NEWS - November 2017 - The Vatican's Pontifical Council for Culture has approved the proposal that a petition be sent to Pope Francis requesting him to annul the “Monitum” issued by the Holy Office in 1962, which warned superiors of religious institutes, rectors of seminaries and presidents of universities that they should protect minds, particularly young minds, against the dangers presented by the works of Fr. Teilhard de Chardin and his followers. See the report in the Jesuit review America https://tinyurl.com/ydxqrn3b

NEWS - June 2017 - Sadly it was decided at the Extraordinary General Meeting on 3 June 2017 that the British Teilhard Association should be dissolved by the end of this year, due to lack of membership.

The good news is that the BTA’s existing financial resources will be used, first, to continue funding the BTA website under the name of the British Teilhard Network. Second, to sponsor a conference in 2018 at Edinburgh University’s School of Divinity on the issues involved in reconciling science and religion. Third, to endow an annual Teilhard Seminar at Durham University’s Centre for Catholic Studies.
