Event description

Description

Sacred mathematics is a path to the Divine. In ancient Greece at the beginnings of mathematics as we know it, this was the heart of the Pythagorean teaching. As society became increasingly industrialised, the technical, quantitative aspects of mathematics were developed and extended whilst the spiritual and qualitative aspects were unfortunately, increasingly ignored.

The liberal arts also have their roots in ancient Greek times. They were formalised in the Roman Empire, as the basis of civilised education. They comprise the trivium, the three verbal arts, logic, grammar and rhetoric; and the quadrivium, the four mathematical arts, arithmetic, geometry, music and astronomy.

This festival is an introduction to these approaches to deepening our reality, vitally needed to help us come through the multiple problems of our modern world.

The Saturday programme consists of talks by eminent experts in their fields to introduce some of the mind-changing ideas inherent in this theme, followed by sacred mathematics in music, a piano recital by the renowned pianist, Douglas Finch, with music by Bach, Chopin and others, including improvisations on themes suggested by the audience.

The Sunday programme gives an opportunity to engage practically with these sacred arts through movement, voice, drawing, needlework and scientific experimentation.

In the plenary sessions we will not only invite questions and comments but also suggestions as to ways of continuing this vital work together.
