“Echoing Word… from the infinite to the world, from the world to the human, from the human to the self.” The journey is fulfilled.
Omilos Eksipiretiton (The Servers’ Society) is presenting the third part of a poetic trilogy that narrates the three stations of the humans’ journey towards the revealing of the greatness within and around them. First stop is the narration of the Creation’s miracle; the second one is the point where the entire physical world is elevated to its true, spiritual nature. The third stop is the poetic work “Logos the Third”, to which this presentation is dedicated; when the human being passes into another state, deep, internal, unwavering; when it sees that it is One with Nature, with the Creation, with the other Humans, with Life.
The presentation will be held in Greek and English, at the Hellenic Centre, 16-18 Paddington Street Marylebone W1U 5AS.
Entry is free. Bookings at 07960797435 or at email@example.com

“Byzantine Music: An Ode to God and its Path through Time”
Byzantine music is a unique kind of music with distinctive features. It has its roots in the early Byzantine era but it also incorporates elements that stem from Ancient Greece. It forms its own complete notation system in the 10th century A.C., different than the known notes of the classical pentagram, and it is still evolving until today. It is liturgical-religious music, while its main feature is that it is monophonic and uses only the human voice, as the most perfect musical instrument.
This presentation will be held by Omilos Eksipiretiton (The Servers’ Society), a School of Thought and Action founded in 1980 in Athens, Greece; its aim is the development of the spirit and the promotion of Greek civilization.
The first part of the presentation will be an introduction to the basic characteristics of Byzantine music and the second part will be an interactive experience using the notation system as a guide and the human voice as a means of expression.
The presentation will be held at Holst Room, Morley College London, 61 Westminster Bridge Rd, SE1 7HT.
The London Mithraeum is a Roman ruin which was discovered by chance in Walbrook, in the City of London, during building construction in 1954. The Mithraeum is believed to have been built in the 3rd century AD and dedicated to Mithras, later rededicated to Bacchus. It was moved temporarily to a new site but the finished work drew a lot of criticism.
Zoom forward to 2010 when Bloomberg decided to build their new European HQ in Walbrook Square. They decided to relocate the Mithraeum (using the original stones and bricks) and site it under their new building, making it available to the public.
Our visit on October 26 will start at 11.00 and last approximately 45 minutes. Admission is free – but we have just 15 tickets available so to book please contact Rosemary Forgan by email email@example.com or phone 020 7916 9353
