 Wisdom's Goldenrod Center for Philosophic Studies is a non-profit organization that provides an environment for individual and group study and meditation. Studies at the Center do not follow any single tradition but instead explore a wide range of topics in Eastern and Western thought, from ancient to contemporary.


The Center was founded in 1972 by Anthony Damiani, a longtime student of Paul Brunton. Studies have continued uninterrupted since Anthony's death in 1984 and are led by members, who also share responsibility for maintenance of the facilities.

ONE AND INFINITY: approaching The Enneads of Plotinus. PDF Print E-mail

 [Enneads references are to the Mckenna translation, Larson Publications, 1995.]  

Open to almost any tractate in The Enneads of Plotinus and read a self-contained, beautiful and inspired poetic discourse.  Or delve deeper, and find landmark non-denominational mystical philosophical treatises, worthy of prolonged analysis.  Even today, with a great wealth of modern nondual teachings and ancient wisdom, the Enneads provide daring insights into the vastness of Reality hardly touched anywhere else.
