The Heart of the Rose

Sacred Mathematics and the Liberal Arts Festival

Saturday 19th January 2019 - Sunday 20th January 2019

9.30am start on both days

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 fields 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.

Presenters include Edi Bilimoria, Gregers Brinch, Julie Cronshaw, Daniel Docherty, Sylvia Francke, Nicola Graves-Gregory, David Lorimer, John Martineau, Alex Murrell, Philip Kilner, Mary-Anne Paterson, Julia Soper, Malin Starrett and others.
