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.
