paris 5.Nouvelle-Acropole-Luc-Bige-10-12-2013-300x199-1The symbolism of the human body, something so common to all and so little known! How can something that has been so dissected and analyzed from all angles still hold some hidden meaning?

This was the journey through our body at the hands of Lucas Bige, biochemist, writer and symbolist, who showed us that behind the sound of the names attributed to different parts of the body lies a hidden meaning.
And hence we discovered a ‘beautiful parchment’, a kind of symbolic geography in our own body…

In collaboration with the student cultural center of Belgrade, New Acropolis presented the lecture ‘Overcoming Fears’. Through a philosophical approach, participants identified lack of knowledge and experience as main factors underlying fears. Everything that is unknown elicits feelings of fear which can block us, but which can also encourage us to take action. It is action that allows us to overcome fears, the unknown becomes known and this makes doubt and pain disappear.

New Acropolis Montreal presented a lecture entitled Consciousness and the frontier of the afterlife.
This question has challenged the human consciousness since the dawn of time. Is consciousness outside the brain? What can the people who experienced a near-death experience (NDE) tell us? What about the new scientific discoveries? What is quantum consciousness? The philosopher-speaker introduced the subject with clarity, supported by quotes, examples and meditations. This quest for truth led participants to reflect upon what is the real identity of the human being.
