Process and Pilgrimage in Cordoba: June 5th to 8th 2014


Process and Pilgrimage - Walking with science

At the Crossroads of Cordoba

June 5th to 8th 2014

Read in Spanish here         

“For the idols, sacred ground, Ka’ba for the circling pilgrim, the tables of the Torah, the scrolls of the Qur’an, I profess the religion of love; wherever its caravan turns along the way, that is the belief, the faith I keep.” Ibn Arabi, 12th century Sufi mystic, A Garden Among the Flames


Process and Pilgrimage is a journey to the source of western culture. In previous years this journey has progressed from the modern setting of London to the Renaissance cradle of Assisi and Tuscany in Italy. Now the journey arrives in Cordoba, Spain, where an earlier form of the unity of European culture was held in the 12th century, when Jews, Christian and Muslims lived together and worked together weaving theology, science and philosophy in a unified whole.


Join Philip Franses and Shantena Sabbadini at Centro de Psicologia Albayda for an event centered on the unity of knowledge, beyond the fragmented understanding that separates science, art and mysticism



Bustling Roman metropolis, jewel in the crown of Arabic Andalucía and cultural custodian during the dark ages, Córdoba witnessed the dawn of western civilisation. This is a place where I feel as if I could arrive at the huge modern train station and, by journeying into the historic centre, travel backwards through time. Even now, after hundreds of years as a fairly quiet provincial town, it holds the keys to huge tranches of our past, both spiritual and intellectual’ (Van der zee
