The Embassy of the Free Mind is a place where you can find wisdom from all over the world, where images and texts will tell you centuries-old stories created by free thinkers.
It is a platform where you can discuss life questions with other people, irrespective of religion, culture or age.
It is a place where you can encounter history, science, art and spirituality all connected.
We offer you a journey through 2,000 years of wisdom, inspired by the collection of the Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.
