These lectures concentrate on the wisdom behind the greatness of Ben Franklin. This is a video course with valuable supplemental materials about Franklin's life and work. We detail f Franklin's relationship to Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism, facts which are left out of conventional history and biographies of his life. We also discuss Franklin's attitude about Reincarnation and Christianity and why he was not a Deist. Without this "secret" information it is hard to see how our country can continue to prosper. The course should take about a week to complete. Anyone with a curious and open mind will gain a great deal of personal wisdom as to what is possible in life to know and achieve.

Classic Insights Institute is a program patterned after the Princeton LIberal Arts experience but made very inspirational, not just intellectual. Flaxman's life has been completely devoted to bringing a much deeper understaning of love into every aspect of education.
