“Philosophy is indeed the science of living perfectly, and is above all things, to speak briefly, the cause to Souls of a perfect life. “ 

Iamblichus,  quoted from The Shrine of Wisdom

Practicing the Presence of Gods:

A beginner's mind conversation with Anthony's astrology --

We'll explore ways of entering into Anthony's astrology as a mandala that intimates where and how to look for one's soul.

Starting out Monday, January 12, 7:30 pm at Wisdom's Goldenrod library. We are planning to meet weekly.

Please join us if you're interested in exploring this topic.

The Astrological Mandala

This article "The Astrological Mandala" is part II of a series exploring the philosophic vision of Anthony Damiani (please see, Part I "Total Affirmation") written by Carol DeAntoni.

Diagrams by Anthony Damiani:

2015 will be an important year in the archiving of Anthony Damiani’s materials.  He left us a treasure trove of gifts and we wish to share with you a sampling of those gifts, in some way, the crown jewels, his hand drawn diagrams, presented here on our website for the first time.

Paul Brunton's Notebooks, online:

Here you will find a free and searchable database of Paul Brunton's Notebooks.

Invocatory Prelude:

The following is a portion of the "Invocatory Prelude" of Astronoesis by Anthony Damiani. We feel that all of Anthony's wisdom and understanding can be found in the Invocation, albiet in a very condensed form.  Please note that if you would like to hear Anthony speak this invocation, you can find a recording of it on our file download section in our "Members only" section of the website.

The Geometric meaning of the Zodiac:

We are please to be able to present videos of Lenny Silver's talks: on "The Geometric meaning of the Zodiac",  part one, and part two. Lenny has also made available a document called "Stars" -- a Coda to his talks.


An introduction to the Lunar Nodes, by Anthony Damiani:

That the universe has a structure, a flowing one, is a modern scientific `fact'. And that there is `something' that flows may be included in that notion. Consequently the reality that we live in, and that we are — thinking, feeling, willing — and all that perception reveals, is also part of that whole. We are of that very substance which includes all possible arrangements of itself — even denial. This cosmic order is equivalent to what the ancients called Intellect; and further, we as its offspring, are directly related to it, as the warp and woof of our very being . . . physical, emotional, mental .. .

What is Philosophy?

"What is Philosophy?" is a topic discussed in great detail at "The Center". Here you will find various articles/ideas on what this idea means to Anthony, PB, Plotinus and a number of Students from Wisdom's Goldenrod.
