"Rather than proclaiming allegiance with any tradition, doctrine or set of teachings, TI is therefore more concerned with what is known as the philosophia perennis, or the Perennial Philosophy that became the title of Aldous Huxley’s eponymous book in 1945, the universal wisdom that lies at the root of all religious and mystical traditions.

"In a sense, Tyringham is a response to the notion that we do stand on the cusp of a New Renaissance, another Copernican shift which integrates all levels of the human condition into a new possibility, supported by both direct mystical experience and ‘new paradigm’ science – that consciousness may in fact be primary to matter; that We arise within Consciousness, rather than consciousness being generated by the brain."
