Seeking the Song of the Cosmos:
What Pythagoras Can Teach Us About
with Kayleen Asbo, Ph.D.
The Greek sage Pythagoras was not only mathematician, but mystic, musician, healer, cosmologist and charismatic religious leader. He founded an egalitarian spiritual commune whose quest for wisdom and harmony created the hidden foundation of much of Western monasticism, music theory, art and architecture. In this interdisciplinary lecture, we will see in art and music how the father of philosophy discovered a pattern of healing and wholeness that can inspire and illuminate our modern search for balance and connection.
Kayleen Asbo, Ph.D is musician, composer and mythologist whose work on Pythagoras has been presented at Oxford University, Grace Cathedral, Chartres Cathedral, conferences in Italy, England and Wales and whose essay is featured in a forthcoming book sponsored by Prince Charles and the Harmony Project. She is the cultural historian for the Santa Rosa Symphony, a preconcert lecturer for the San Francisco Opera and Mendocino Music Festival, a Mast Teacher for Veriditas Labyrinth Organization and the Artistic Director for the Mythica Foundation for Education, Arts and Contemplation. www.kayleenasbo.com
