“The Evolution of the New Era rests on the cornerstone of Knowledge and Beauty.”
Nicholas Roerich, Heart of Asia
The trees are a stately presence at the manor house. They stretch tall and poised with a sense of purpose and belonging. Some were planted over two hundred years ago. These are particularly inspiring. The expanse of history rooted in this parkland supports the property like a timeless story. A royal story. The plot twists and turns have provided generations of players with their own contribution to the greater narrative, which rests at the front door like a host who awaits his guests.
We have not forgotten what the previous residents held in high regard; poetry, music, painting, education — the aesthetics of the 18th Century manor houses in Poland are still tangible. Stepping back in time through portrait paintings, photographs capturing the days before the War, the part of the Palace still in ruin, the diminutive chapel that sits outside like a gargoyle to predators who might seek to disrupt the peaceful atmosphere; these are the features that act as container to what is remembered and what maintains its integrity.
Sichow is the perfect setting for those who wish to gather and gather we must to talk philosophy, politics, religion, science, medicine, poetry, art, especially of a pioneering nature. This is the new resistance. The partnership between the best of tradition and what is currently evolving thrives in this environment. Tradition preserves while the future presents. A new consciousness is asking to be born. Salons emerge during times of great political unrest or during times of cultural renaissance. We are living in such times.
