Winter / Spring Events

January - April 2017

SPIRIT IN ACTION

This is a course of eight evenings aimed at people in their 20s and 30s with an interest in spirituality. Each evening will be a blend of teaching and activities based in Anthroposophy, a contemporary, non-monastic spiritual path created by Rudolf Steiner for people who want both to develop themselves spiritually, and to help the world.

You are welcome to attend all the evenings or your own selection.

A new series of evenings giving a grounding in the main areas of anthroposophical knowledge and practice will run on Thursday evenings, 7.30pm to 9pm, from 4th May to 22nd June. Details to follow.

Sacred Geometry

The Power of 21st Century Storytelling
With Roi Gal-Or

9th February 2017
7.30pm - 9pm
£7 (£5 concessions)

The Power of 21st Century Storytelling

An interactive evening in which Roi will share some of his experiences of how storytelling can help the birthing of the new paradigm so much needed in our times.

Long before television was ever imagined storytellers and bards, prophets and poets were called upon to tell their visions and, through a live encounter, provide images that could direct, entertain, provoke, heal and reconcile the communities in which they lived and worked. Even in this day and age, we are, in fact, made of stories, some of which serve our individual and collective endeavours, others binding us to outmoded images. Imagination, therefore, is our key to the invisible realm from which all stories and everything new and possible can be born. Coupled with clear intention this essential human faculty can help us connect with creative forces which are ever available to us. The future is shaped, for good or ill, by the stories we believe and follow.

Child Development
A Spiritual Perspective

With Alexander Gifford

The developmental journey from baby to adulthood has many external signs, but what spiritually is behind these? In this talk and workshop we will look at the bigger picture of the first 18 years of life, and how a system of education which has an understanding of the child's developing consciousness can work in tandem with that process to create emotionally grounded, creative and capable young people.

Biodynamic Agriculture

Biodynamic Agriculture
Not just muck and magic!

The Synergy of Art and Science

The Synergy of Art and Science
With Philip Kilner

9th March 2017
7.30pm - 9pm
£7 (£5 concessions)

Philip is both a medical doctor who specialised in the fluid dynamics and movements of the heart, and a sculptor. His blend of scientific rigour and artistic appreciation has given him an awareness of both the strengths and the limitations of the conventional scientific approach. Goethe, the 18th century German writer, cultivated his own inquisitive perceptive openness to the changing phenomena of nature, accepting these as his teacher, rather than the scientific dogmas of his day. For him and potentially for any of us, ways into nature’s beauties and mysteries lie open and accessible.

Karma

Karma
The Science of Consequences

With Alexander Wright

23rd March 2017
7.30pm - 9pm
£7 (£5 concessions)

Today the ancient Sanskrit word “Karma” has entered common usage, with a sense that it refers to good and bad consequences of past actions. This is true, but a deeper look at the law of karma throws light on the individual purpose of our current life in a developmental journey that lasts lifetimes. In this talk we will look at the purpose of this spiritual law, how it works with Reincarnation, karmic relationships, group karma, the role of Angels in managing karma, and how to deal with your own karma.
