Cosmogenesis: The Universal Creation Story

A VIA Webinar

What’s all this about Cosmogenesis? Join Veriditas founder Rev. Dr. Lauren Artress in conversation with Brian Thomas Swimme as they discuss the Story of the Universe and how our own life path plays a part in its direction. Inspired by the work of Thomas Berry, Brian contextualizes the 13.7 billion year trajectory of the universe and considers how we can return to a vibrant community that transcends individual, human and geo-political boundaries.

In this one-hour webinar, Lauren and Brian consider how the archetype of the labyrinth can serve as a divine blueprint that can transform human consciousness individually and in community. As Lauren writes in Walking a Sacred Path, “The labyrinth offers a spiritual exercise that becomes the path of life. It allows the wandering soul to find a way to center, to find a way home."
