Why the Golden Verses

Pythagoras’ Golden Verses are characterized as “Golden” because they reveal to us how to transform the “heavy”, dark and unrefined parts of our Self, the lead of our soul, into gold, i.e. into refined and noble qualities – the “Divine Virtues”.

Why refer to Ancient Greece

Why refer to Ancient Greece ?

“Our culture has the tendency to look to Greece, when it refers to the glory of the past, perfection, grace and spiritual clarity, … since Greece is the cradle of our civilization.


Our goal is to turn to Greece, looking for psychological insight. To understand what this “Greece” has to offer that is so attracted to the soul and what it is exactly that the soul finds in Greece.


(James Hillman, Initiator of Archetypal Psychology)
