Honoring the Founding of the Chartres School

Early in the second millennium, the Chartres school was a center for healing, arts, the honoring of the earth and the Divine Feminine Principle, as well as for the use of alchemy as a tool for personal transformation, and for the revolutionary perspectives of world citizenship and interconnectedness. As author Jim Garrison writes, our work in the present age is “to reclaim our wholeness and to reconnect with those great educators of the past who understood that art is as important as logic, that personal transformation is as important as belief, and that feeling one with the cosmos is as important as having dominion over nature.” The school at Chartres thus is both a precursor and an inspiration for Seven Pillars House of Wisdom.
