Pythagorean Harmonics: Sacred Number and the Golden Verses

Oct 22
Kirk Gradin

(On Site and Zoom)
Saturday 10 am – noon and 2 – 4 pm PDT

According to HP Blavatsky, the gnosis or system of knowledge, called philosophia,
or the “love of wisdom” by Pythagoras, was brought to the west from Indian
sanctuaries and was none other than that of Theosophia—Divine Wisdom or God-
knowledge, the “truth of nature without the veil of the senses.” From what little is known of his school, it affirmed that the metaphysical mysteries of life could be progressively approached though moral and mental discipline aligned with sacred number and archetypal geometry. This in part helps to explain the profound and continuing impact of Pythagorean ideas upon Western science, philosophy and mysticism, as well the arts. This seminar will explore what is known about his life and teaching, its impact upon the classical and renaissance traditions of art and architecture, and its prophetic message for our time.
