Through participating in this chain of gold, we ourselves become golden. The golden chain is an ancient symbol of the power that holds the universe together and connects this world of time to the world of eternity. But it also symbolizes the mysterious lineage which stretches from the founders of Western civilization, through Hermetic and then Sufi tradition, into the present time. In this extraordinary talk Peter Kingsley unravels the many implications of this imagery, showing what is needed if we are to bring the essential but long-forgotten wisdom of our past into the present for the sake of the future.
