A musical performance will follow the lecture with four original compositions utilizing, in the music, the Hermetic Laws as they appear in the Kybalion and inspired by the Orphic, Hermetic and Rosicrucian traditions. The evening is fashioned aesthetically after the famous Salon de la Rose+Croix movement which took place in Paris, France, between 1892 and 1897.
