What is Integral Wisdom?

Integral Wisdom is the online learning platform of The Fintry Trust, an educational charity guided by the universal ideals of Truth, Beauty, Goodness and Unity. 

Integral Wisdom may be defined as the ancient and universal wisdom.¬† It is, in so far as it can be described in words, the Divine Wisdom, the literal manifestation of the Logos ‚Äď the Divine Word.¬† It does not belong exclusively to any particular time in history, nor to any particular system of teaching;¬† rather it is the totality of all wisdom of all time which has so far been expressed on the plane of human consciousness.

Integral Wisdom courses draw upon the world’s wisdom traditions, both ancient and modern, enabling you to explore timeless Ideas and Ideals and their relevance in today’s world. 

The structured programmes include talks, guided meditations, self-assessments, a range of engaging guest speakers and certificates. You are invited to learn at your own pace in a supportive environment in order to expand your mind, open your heart, serve the good, live joyfully and reconnect to the divine mystery.

Courses are aimed at seekers from all walks of life who are looking to explore the perennial questions. No previous training or qualifications are required

The One Work. A Journey to the Self

 

This course is by Jungian analyst, historian and author, Anne Baring (née Gage) and draws upon her first book, of the same title, published in 1961 by Vincent Stuart, London, as well as a talk she gave to The Fintry Trust Summer School in 2023.  The course has been produced for Integral Wisdom, the online learning platform by The Fintry Trust.

 

In the course Anne Baring describes her quest to discover the underlying meaning of Hinduism, Buddhism, Daoism and Christianity and how their message is essentially identical: the re-union of the conscious human self with the divine ground of being.

 

Her journeys to India and the Far East in the 1950s brought her into contact with the rich spiritual heritage of the eastern traditions and their embodiment in the magnificent sculptures and paintings that reflect them.  These journeys opened her eyes to the deeper meaning and message of the Christian myth and the essential teaching of the inner mystical path shared by all religions.
