Impulses for the future of the Michael Community in the Abyss of our Civilisation
With Dr Peter Selg, Eric Klein and Michael Jones
Saturday 8th September 2018
2.30pm - 6pm
An afternoon of lectures and music at Rudolf Steiner House.
Dr Peter Selg will give lectures celebrating the lives of two people who worked closely with Rudolf Steiner and outline the relevance of their work for humanity today. Dr Elisabeth Vreede (1879-1943) was a mathematician and astronomer who investigated the spiritual background to astronomical phenomena such as the precession of the equinoxes, comets and eclipses. Dr Ita Wegman (1876-1943) was a medical doctor who founded an art of medicine arising out of the spiritual insights of Rudolf Steiner, outlined in their book Extending Practical Medicine.
Eric Klein (violin) and Michael Jones (piano) will offer a concert programme which enables us to deepen our understanding and experience of music. This will include sonatas for violin and piano by Grieg and Debussy.
2.30 Lecture on the life of Dr. Elisabeth Vreede
3.45 Lecture on the life of Dr. Ita Wegman
Peter Selg was born in 1963 in Stuttgart and studied medicine in Witten-Herdecke, Zurich, and Berlin. He worked as the head physician of the juvenile psychiatry department of Herdecke hospital in Germany and is now director of the Ita Wegman Institute and professor of medicine at the Alanus University. Eric Klein holds degrees in music from the Manhattan School of Music in New York City and was a member of the first violin section of the Kansas City Philharmonic Orchestra. He moved to England in 2000. Michael Jones studied at what is now the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire graduating with prizes for piano. He has performed works by over 450 composers.
