The Mystery and Power of Chartres
When the Celts migrated from Central Europe into France 3500 years ago, they found in Chartres what they considered to be the most powerful energetic quality in all of Europe — a telluric energy associated with the feminine. They called Chartres their Vatican, meaning seat, and each year, led by their Druid elders, they would congregate in Chartres to honour the Black Madonna they fashioned to honour the deep spirit of the feminine. 1500 years later came the Christians who also honoured the extraordinary feminine quality of the place. In 1006, an Italian bishop Fulbert was appointed who established the Chartres Academy, based on the Academy of Plato. The Chartrian Masters built the cathedral that stands to the present day, called by the mythologist Joseph Campbell the “womb of the earth” and by many historians of art the “queen of the cathedrals.”
The Revolution in Learning

At the forefront of the coming revolution in learning is Ubiquity University, the first global integral learning system. With Ken Wilber as Chancellor and the Integral Transpersonal Institute of Milan as a partner, Ubiquity is bringing into the global education market a new form of learning that is competency based, holistic, dedicated to social activism and designed to bring students together to solve global challenges. Come and consider how to join the revolution.
