The Heart of the Rose

The Heart of the Rose

The Sacred Mathematics and Liberal Arts Festival

January 19th and 20th 2019

A collaboration between Mathematics & Mythos and
the Scientific and Medical Network


Sacred Mathematics and the Liberal Arts Festival
An inspiring weekend of lectures, workshops and demonstrations on the themes of Number, Geometry, Music, Astronomy, Language and Movement.  All are welcome to come along for one or both days.  This is a wonderful opportunity, not only to learn from experts in their field but also to experience the spiritual impulse of Pythagorean and Platonic teachings that created The Great School of Chartres, which is again vitally relevant today.
You can choose from a rich variety of talks and workshops.  Explore the emblem of the Rose, the Venus pentagram and the octave in sound and colour.  Learn about the common source of Newton’s and Ramanujan’s genius, and the harmony of the heart, mind and will. Participate in practical Paneurythmy, Eurythmy and Cecchetti ballet sessions.  And more!  On Saturday evening, enter the spiritual world of music with Douglas Finch’s virtuoso piano recital, Epiphanies.

A weekend of workshops, talks, music and performance. A collaboration of Mathematics & Mythos with the Scientific and Medical Network.
