PRACTICAL WISDOM

Welcome to our Site

The Objects of this site are to:

Explore the contribution that the information available in the ‘Ageless Wisdom’ could make to the solution of contemporary practical problems.

Explore the possibilities of setting up a network of individuals and projects interested in this concept,

The Ageless Wisdom, the Perennial Philosophy, Mysticism - whatever name we like to use – has, for centuries, been held to be a valuable source of information, not available directly by conventional intellectual means.

Many hold that this concept is not compatible with modern scientific thinking.  But spontaneous, intuitive inspiration is mentioned by contemporary authors and poets as their ‘muse’, and by composers as their source of inspiration - this is usually seen as a personal, subjective experience and not as a practical, teachable skill. 

In this site we explore the idea that intuitive inspiration is potentially available to all, and could become a teachable skill that could be applied to some of our current, apparently intractable, problems.

We look at the stages in the ‘Process’ of accessing this ‘Wisdom’ in the following pages

  • Home – this page    .
  • Search - Search facility - our email address - Site Map =  a Glossary of spiritual term
  • About - about us and our Name
  • Wisdom – understanding the concept of this Wisdom
  • Inspiration - Methods of accessing this Wisdom and generating ideas
  • Practical - resources needed to help to realise these Ideas
  • Enabling - people and organisation who might help with the process
  • Projects – practical uses of the Wisdomfor individuals, projects and problem solving
  • Glastonbury – some details of this unique town in the UK
  • Information – useful books and web sites

Other than under the above headings, the listing of individual articles is arbitrary - they are there to be read in whatever order suits the reader.

We are looking at an enormous subject.   Our way of tackling this is to outline the concept on the first page of the subject, with a contemporary paper. Then expand the subject with draw-down pages from existing articles and papers.

Most of these pages have been written over the last 10 years or so by Barry Taylor. Where the article is date-sensitive, the date of origin is given - where someone else is the originator, an appropriate note is given. 

Included in this site is a section on Glastonbury.  The experience behind the papers on this site has mainly been gained in this special and unusual town in the West Country of the United Kingdom.  It is an excellent example of what might be called a ‘transformational town’ and is growing and developing towards realising its full potential.

We believe that this site is of potential interest to those seeking to use the Wisdom in their everyday life - and could include:

  • individuals wanting to develop their own higher consciousness
  • Intuitively Inspired people who need practical help in realising their vision.
  • Practical people interested in supporting social projects
  • People interested in being 'Enablers' and helping the process to flow
  • politicians and others with practical problems to be solved
