Science & Esoteric Wisdom


Science & Esoteric Wisdom is a compilation of public lectures in Sydney by Dr Groves between 1994 and 1998.The material is variously a detailed study of a single aspect of the natural world as, for instance, in the chapters on the Lymphatic system, a Psychological View of Anatomy, and Plant and Human Interaction.

It is also a study of the esoteric as it has been presented at different times – in Ancient Egypt, Sufi material and more currently in the Fourth Way. These chapters are all woven together with a common thread – that is the wonder and appreciation of the Divine – the source of all creation.

Beyond the Fourth Way

Beyond the Fourth Way is an exploration of aspects of the Fourth Way, a methodology whereby an ordinary person can be awakened, developed and transformed so that they become a harmonized, conscious being. We explore selected principles and techniques contained in Fourth Way material with a particular view to how valuable their application is for each person in daily life.
This very rich teaching system is then blended with the profound spiritual understanding of the Christian mystic Emanuel Swedenborg, to provide a deeply meaningful and practical approach to inner development and soul growth.

The Quest for Integration (Vol.1)

Quest-for-Integration-Volume11-150x150 (1)The Quest for Integration was the focus of talks given in 1987, and all chapters refer, explain or demonstrate the path of personal transformation. The path leads from a person separated within themselves by diverse weaknesses, aims and abilities to a whole being with all parts harmoniously working together, and united within a pure spiritual framework. The journey outlined in this book is generously supported by a deep understanding of the Christian mystic Emanuel Swedenborg meaningfully blended with the methodology of the Fourth Way and the great Russian teacher George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff.

Spiritual Psychology

spirit_sm-150x150Spiritual Psychology is concerned with the arousal and development of the buried potentials of human life which are unknown to most people and but dimly suspected by a few. It is the application to ourselves of methods and disciplines that serve to establish the conditions in which a completely new kind of life may begin to appear.  We find extensive reference to the methodology of the Fourth Way in the examination of principles that may be followed by those on the path of inner transformation.
