The British Teilhard Network

The British Teilhard Network promotes the work and vision of the priest-scientist 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.

THIS MONTH’S SUGGESTED TITLE
Teilhard de Chardin on Love: Evolving Human Relationships
by Lou Savary and Patricia Byrne, Paulist Press 2017. “The authors have provided a valuable contribution in this book by clearly explaining Teilhard’s doctrine of love on every level of life, from God to friendship, marriage, parenting, and human community. Their book is less a scholarly exposition on a Teilhardian doctrine of love than a masterful illumination of love as the core energy of evolving life. Each chapter clearly explains Teilhard’s insights and then provides practical ways of incorporating these ideas into daily life.”

THIS MONTH’S SUGGESTED ARTICLE
Wagner, Einstein and Teilhard
by Dr. Rudy Hwa, Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of Oregon, USA. “As a physicist I know Einstein’s work more than I do about the works of Wagner and Teilhard de Chardin. But my love for music, especially for Wagner’s operas, and my journey in spirituality put me at a place where I can enjoy a panoramic view of all three.”
