The British Teilhard Association

The British Teilhard Association was founded in 1963 to promote knowledge and understanding of the work of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. It is a non-sectarian educational society which helps people from all walks of life to meet together to study and build on the evolutionary ideas Teilhard developed.

The Association organises conferences, lectures and workshops, and supports attendance of students at these events. It is affiliated to the Fondation Teilhard in Paris and is a founder member of the European Teilhard de Chardin Centre. Membership is open to members from other countries--currently we have members from North America, Australia, India and several other countries.

Membership of the Association is open to all interested in Teilhard de Chardin. Teilhard himself said that he hoped that others would carry on where he left off - and, indeed, much needs to be done to make his vision known to newer generations, and to translate and develop this so as to make it accessible to all people.

Questions facing the Association are: how might Teilhard's vision be conveyed in such a way that, whilst remaining faithful to its Christian roots, it can be recognised and attractive to people of other persuasions, and to those who don't subscribe to any religion? How might the language and idiom of Teilhard's writings be transmitted in language recognisable and acceptable in other cultures? This is a challenge to those who feel the mystical truth in Teilhard's writings.

If you are interested in this, the British Teilhard Association welcomes you - and will appreciate your support.
