"Symposium" comes from the Greek word symposion, which comes from sympinein which means "to drink together." In
ancient Greece the word conveyed the idea of a convivial party (as after a banquet) with music and conversation...the
conversation being the focal point with a free interchange of ideas. The famous Greek Plato wrote a book called the
Symposium which records several banquet eulogies and presents the conversations that the phenomenological world can
be viewed, as objects of mystical contemplation and as stimuli of mystical emotion.
Such discourses and commentaries have led to the modern usage of the term Symposium to be a formal gathering of
experts that elucidate on various specialized topics. Once again Elysium Gates in this area is blending the old with the new,
by gathering member sites that reflect spiritual, metaphysical and religious beliefs and contemplations. Also here you will
find sites that reflect philosophy, psychology and the mystical side of all cultures and activities.
