“Piercing Truths: Pythagoras, Western Civilization, and Hope”–Steven Armstrong, FRC, from the “Mystical Italy” issue of the Rosicrucian Digest.

Civilizations do not just happen; they are created by those whose place it is to grow them, and when a civilization comes to an impasse, to pierce through to a new path.

In this podcast, RCUI Instructor Steven Armstrong discusses the work of lifelong mystic and author Peter Kingsley, as it relates to Pythagoras, the origins of Western Civilization, and the impasse of our times.
