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.

In a personal tribute, Bronwen Astor, who knew Renee-Marie and Kenneth well expresses the sentiments of all Teilhardians when she says, "We all owe a great debt to Renee-Marie. Her tremendous energy and unfailing sense of humour combined with intellectual and personal gifts of memory and rigour attracted many eminent scientists, philosophers and theologians and set the Teilhard Centre on a firm footing in its first twenty years.
