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?

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