An event every week that begins at 11:15am on Thursday, repeating until December 15, 2017

The Roots of Wisdom: An Exploration into the Foundations of Western Culture,
Philosophy, Myth and Ritual Through Art and Music

What connects the Camino Santiago Compostela with Sir Isaac Newton and Harry Potter? How in the world is Epiphany related to rituals for Dionysus and Erik Satie? What do the ancient pagan sibyls have to do with Michelangelo, St. Augustine, Mozart, Rachmaninoff and Franz Liszt? Why is Pythagoras carved into the doorway of Chartres cathedral in France?  This six week exploration into the art, music, myth, philosophy and ritual that form the hidden foundation of Western Culture will reveal how profoundly connected we are to echoes of the past. It will give you new eyes to see the meaning of the treasures hidden in plain sight in a class that has been called “exhilarating”, “mind-blowing”, and “life-changing”.
