Poetics of Science: Through Itself
June 23 – 25, 2017
The third of three seminar weekends at the Chisholme Institute offering interactive presentations and workshops with speakers from diverse backgrounds, films and music nights.
The compelling idea that inspired The Poetics of Science seminar weekends is inspiration itself. Inspiration is the creative, inexhaustible source through which the human reality can be directly known, be it through the science of the physical universe explored as an object, or through the embodied discovery of the hidden, interior realm of the heart.
