The short introductory talk will be on the Salon de la Rose Croix and on the relationship between music and spirituality. A musical performance will follow the lecture, with four original compositions by Brother Crisos utilizing, in the music, the Hermetic Laws as they appear in the Kybalion and inspired by the Orphic, Hermetic and Rosicrucian traditions.
