The Poetics of Science: Inspiration

April 21 – 23, 2017

The first of 4 seminar weekends at the Chisholme Institute entitled ‘Inspiration’; offering interactive presentations and workshops with speakers from diverse backgrounds including Buddhism, Literature, Contemplative-Meditation, Psychology, Art, The-Greater-Ecumenism, and Music; films and a music concert by Stems.

Event Description
The compelling idea that inspired The Poetics of Science seminars 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.

*STEMS are a ‘Cinematic’, Post-Rock, Neo-Classical band, currently performing with four musicians: 2 violins, a cello and a guitar. The band was formed in 2011 with the idea of seeking a new relationship between experimental guitar and classical instruments, to create music with the energy of avant-garde rock music but with elongated and intense structures of Western and Indian classical music.
