Condor’s Quest: Mysteries of the Andes with Dr. Leonard George

Join us for another season of the Capilano Universe Lecture series!

A condor sees all from above. That aerial view is a sort of wisdom; it puts things in perspective. In the five-thousand-year arc of pre-Hispanic civilization in the Andes, two locations shone as beacons of transformative wisdom – Chavín de Huántar (in what is now Peru) and Tiwanaku (Bolivia). Modern researchers are casting light on the mysteries of these sites, finding that the condor’s wisdom may be vital for the human race to survive.

Leonard George, Ph.D. is a Canadian psychologist, educator, writer and broadcaster. He is the Chair of the School of Social Sciences at Capilano University. Leonard has given lectures and seminars on 5 continents as well as online. Well-travelled in body and in mind, he has celebrated summer solstice with Mongolian shamans and spent the night alone in a haunted French castle, among other adventures. He witnessed a revolution in Greece in 1974, and another in Egypt in 2012. Leonard is drawn to all things vast, intricate or purring.

No registration required, but seating is limited.
