(20201028) Virtual Order Of Sapere Aude: Sources and philosophy of Egyptian Freemasonry by Bro. Jean-Louis de Biasi
In continuation of the series of public lectures, we have the honor to host Bro. Jean-Louis de Biasi, born in the south west of France, to a French mother and an Italian father. He, passionate for ancient Mediterranean traditions, has studied and practiced Eastern techniques and learned the philosophies of Buddhism and Hinduism. He thinks that this very rich knowledge has been misunderstood and neglected for centuries. Even today the practical applications of Western traditions in our daily lives often appear to be forgotten. This is much different in the Eastern Traditions. The training in philosophy and science of religions helped him to reconcile the requirements of critical reason with the Humanistic and spiritual understanding of the world.
He has got Master’s degree in philosophy and taught that subject in France for more than 15 years. The thesis was titled “Morals and Religion in the Work of Nietsche.” He also obtained a degree of Hebrew language. While teaching philosophy he was trained in Gestalt-therapy and obtained a certification delivered by the “Institut Français de Gestalt-Therapie” (French Institute of Gestalt-therapy). For several years, he has also practiced oneirology, and hypnotherapy.
He is the author of more than ten books in French mostly published by Grancher Publications (Paris, France). Now his English works are published by Llewellyn Publications, the world’s largest publisher of books aiming to expand human potential, spiritual consciousness, and planetary awareness. Several of his books are available in Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, French, and Greek. His books can be found here: https://www.debiasi.org/books
Jean-Louis’s expertise extends to Tantra Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Meditation, and creative visualization having resumed a more intensive and inclusive practice manifested in the practice of the facets of the esoteric and traditional Tantra Yoga including Yoga Nidra that combines his long practical expertise with my spiritual, religious and philosophical knowledge. With his wife Patricia he develops the practical applications of yoga techniques of this specific tradition of tantra yoga.
Besides, this historic and analytic research, he is the current head of two of the initiatory schools: The Aurum Solis and the Kabbalistic Order of the Rose-Cross.
