Revisit the Garden of Eden and re-read this biblical narrative in a richly symbolic way.


The biblical story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is foundational to Western culture and has widely influenced our psychology and spirituality, whether we realize it or not. In this seminar, we will take on this fascinating story in depth and in discussion, revisiting the Garden of Eden and re-reading its narrative in a richly symbolic way. Naamleela Free Jones will offer a series of esoteric reflections and alternate perspectives from Gnosticism, depth psychology, and Indian yogic philosophy. Together they show how an esoteric perspective on the study of religion can free us to rewrite our own myths and transform our intimate understandings of the very heart of Western culture.

This program is being offered ONLINE only.  Recordings will be distributed to registered participants only, and only upon request, and will not be available for individual purchase.

All times are CT. Please contact with any questions.

Please register early. Programs with four or fewer participants are subject to cancellation, 48 hours prior to their start.

Dr. Naamleela Free Jones holds a PhD in Gnosticism, Esotericism, and Mysticism from Rice University in Houston, Texas, and a B.A. in religion from UC Berkeley, California. The youngest daughter of spiritual philosopher and artist, Adi Da Samraj, Naamleela brings her personal and intellectual background to bear on the study of religion and mythology, East-West spirituality, and contemporary esotericism. She has taught at The Jung Center, University of Houston, Holmes Institute, and Naropa University.
