The Qabalistic symbol of the Tree of Life, known as the soul of Judaism, and known amongst intellectuals in medieval and Renaissance times, offers a map of consciousness that connects to insights that have become available through quantum physics.

Even as traditional forms of religion struggle for membership in a science-informed society, the desire for meaning in life remains as part of our humanity. The ancient Qabalistic symbol of the Tree of Life mentioned briefly in Genesis, is said to have been the soul of Judaism. However, while it became known amongst intellectuals in medieval and Renaissance times it is little known today.

Nevertheless, it remains a wonderful mechanism for illuminating the essences and commonalities of such great wisdom traditions as Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity.

It moreover embodies the Big Bang Theory of the beginning of everything and offers a map of consciousness that connects to insights that have become available through quantum physics. Guy was a senior lecturer in music education at the Massey University College of Education until 2004 when he took leave to pursue his passion for performance and music teaching. He is well known in the Manawatu area as a teacher, adjudicator, piano soloist, accompanist, chamber music player, music coach and conductor.

He is the convenor of the Globe Sunday Matinee concert series, formerly the Te Manawa Art Gallery Sunday concert series and has been the musical director of the Renaissance Singers since 1989. Guy’s performing schedule in 2016 has included chamber music performances as part of the Globe series and accompanying the Palmerston North Choral Society in a programme of opera music. He has also given a solo piano recital featuring music by local composers Helen Caskie and Graham Parsons. On June 24 2017 he will conduct the Renaissance Singers in a programme entitled Into the Light.

Although Guy is best known as a musician, he has a passion also for researching big picture issues. He has given a number of talks for the Theosophical Society. In 2015 He gave a talk to U3A on changes and conflicts in music in the twentieth century, and in 2016 he spoke on the impacts of 1990s political decisions on New Zealand life.The Qabalistic symbol of the Tree of Life, known as the soul of Judaism, and known amongst intellectuals in medieval and Renaissance times, offers a map of consciousness that connects to insights that have become available through quantum physics.
