We are a not for profit association, named Hermes Trismegistus School of Self Knowledge, or Hermes School of Self Knowledge, for short.
Why Hermes Trismegistus?
Hermes Trismegistus is a towering figure from ancient Greece and ancient Egypt who is associated with excellence in communication, wisdom and science. Our classes take their inspiration from the knowledge and texts of these ancient eras, presented in a modern way, and refer to the innate nature of Man. The ancient Greek temple in Delphi states: Nosce Te Ipsum, translated as “Man, Know Yourself and you will know the universe and its gods!” This signifies, in modern terms, that the degree to which a person knows themselves permits them to know the world around them.
More recently, but in keeping with our theme, Galileo Galilei, the Italian sage of the fifteenth century, said: “You cannot teach a man anything, you can only help him find it within himself.”
The didactic of self-knowledge is composed of a set of practical and theoretical information that aims to lead the interested person by his own observations so that he knows his own qualities and potentials and the form in which, through self-learning, he can reach self-improvement. The accompanying practices of relaxation, concentration and meditation complement the talks and are conducive to self-discovery.
