about

gr. γνωθι σεαυτόν

lat. nosce te ipsum / temet nosce

One of the Delphic maxims and was inscribed in the pronaos of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi according to the Greek writer Pausanias (10.24.1).
Delphi, seen as the axis mundi of the ancient Greek world, meant that it served as the connection between Heaven and Earth, being the place around which all else turned. The maxim γνωθι σεαυτόν is a reminder that this connection to Heaven may also be found in ourselves.

Seen through the lens of the ancient Greeks, self-knowledge is one’s ability to claim the power of Apollo (enlightenment and truth) to take responsibility for our actions and how we live life. Through self-knowledge we may develop own philosophy. It is a process concerned with self-awareness, choice, meeting with the Divine, and resonance.
