Plato’s philosophy has permeated and influenced the Western world for more than two thousand years. It forms the foundation of how we understand the physical and metaphysical universe. In this talk we’ll explore Plato’s world of ideas like the One, the Good, the Beauty, and the Just and study his famous analogies; let’s explore the virtuous life and the education that allows us to attain the vision of the Good and to realize the purpose of the human life as told in his allegory of the cave. Join us on Saturday for an enlightening presentation on PLATO, one of the greatest of Western philosophers.

Sunday October 2, 2016 at 12 p.m.  to 5 p.m.

A FOUR-HOUR WORKSHOP with Martin Leiderman, an international speaker for the Theosophical Society, who is an experienced, insightful and humorous presenter on this topic which he chose because he said “It is a topic dear to my heart…and I want to generate sparks and interest among those who take on Secret Doctrine studies.” The workshop will explore the main esoteric teachings presented in the Secret Doctrine–outlined the cyclic evolution of cosmos and of human beings. It is a mind-boggling image of a universe infused with purpose, harmony, and beauty.

Is there a key to studying the Stanzas in the Secret Doctrine?
This is an opportunity to discover and use it.

The gift offered publically to humanity in 1888 was The Secret Doctrine wherein is found the stanzas of the Book of Dzyan, ancient treatises on the development of Cosmos–Cosmogenesis and of Man–Anthropogenesis. Understanding them is difficult at best but well worth the effort. To aid in our studies, workshop facilitator, Martin Leiderman, a longtime student and teacher of esoteric philosophy along many lines, will provide participants with in-depth study techniques that will help clarify this most important esoteric treatise.
