Diana Durham: Coherent Self

November 14 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Greater coherence follows in every aspect of our lives when we learn to use the magical tool of consciousness. We do this by connecting to our deeper self. Come and explore how myth and ancient sacred texts can guide us on the path to personal coherence.

Looking through the windows of myth and archetype, Tibetan Buddhist thought and David Bohm’s theory of the Implicate Order poet and author Diana Durham shows how our thinking becomes coherent when our ‘personality self’ is in meaningful relationship with a deeper quality of awareness and identity. Diana also explores how the opposite plays out, ie, when we are disconnected from our inner intuitive source, our thinking becomes incoherent leading to problems and incoherent outcomes. This is the condition symbolised in the Grail myth by the figure of the Wounded King who rules over a Wasteland Kingdom, around whose plight the promise and message of the myth revolves.

Diana Durham is the author of the nonfiction books Coherent Self, Coherent World: a new synthesis of Myth, Metaphysics & Bohm’s Implicate Order from ‘O’ Books 2019 and The Return of King Arthur: completing the quest for wholeness from Tarcher/Penguin 2004; as well as three collections of poetry and a novel, The Curve of the Land from Skylight Press 2015. Her dramatic retelling of the grail story, Perceval & the Grail is in CD and downloadable form as an audioplay as well as an animated series on YouTube Perceval & the Grail Part 1 Morgana’s Retelling – YouTube. In the 1980’s Diana was among those who explored dialogue with David Bohm.
