Ralph Waldo Emerson, Western Idealist

Reawaken your natural intelligence and enthusiasm for life in a group that examines the key essays and speeches of America's preeminent philosopher.  Ralph Waldo Emerson’s themes of unity, goodness, reason, joy and self-reliance mirror those of Advaita and provide inspiration and a practical guide to living spiritually in any age.

Emerson urged his readers to access, to the fullest, our natural inclination toward truthfulness, sharing, service, cooperation and joy. He sought to awaken in us the highest potential that our human consciousness can bring.

Join us to read and discuss Emerson's eloquent words of self-awakening.
