Listen Up!

As a school of syncretic wisdom, Ambiarchy Academy draws from many diverse and even opposing sources, which are not always easily reconciled.
These listed resources are external interests to Ambiarchy Academy. While they do represent matters worthy of consideration, Ambiarchy Academy in no way fully endorses any of these resources in their entirety. These are not official documents, nor do they represent any dogma, for Ambiarchy Academy. None the less, these documents should provide a good deal of enlightenment for their readership. This database is currently being built.
