All Events


  • Saturday 25th January - Sunday 26th January
    9am - 5.30pm
    With Rupert Spira
    The Essence of Non-Duality
    This is a contemporary, experiential approach involving silent meditation, guided meditation and conversation, and requires no affiliation to any particular religious or spiritual tradition. All that is needed is an interest in the essential nature of experience, and in the longing for love, peace and happiness around which most of our lives revolve.
    In his meetings, Rupert explores the perenial, non-dual understanding that lies at the heart of all the great religious and spiritual traditions, such as Adavaita Vedanta, Kashmir Shaivism, Hinduism, Buddhism, mystical Christianity, Sufism and Zen, and which is also the direct, ever-present reality of our own experience.
    Tickets cost £160 and can be purchased online via: https://non-duality.rupertspira.com/meet/#united_kingdom

    The Guardian of the Threshold
    with Trevor Dance
    This play is the third in the series of four mystery dramas written by Rudolf Steiner. It penetrates deeply the personal relationships between the characters from a spiritual perspective. The interplay of Lucifer and Ahriman and their respective roles in human evolution are starkly depicted. The twelve different viewpoints and the complexities of bringing previously secret wisdom into the open are also examined. The play is extremely rich in content.
    All welcome, no need to book. Tickets £5/£3 Concessions
  • Monday 27th January
    7pm - 8.30pm
    With Trevor Dance
    Our reading groups provide the opportunity in a very informal setting to explore Rudolf Steiner’s work with others. There is no need for any prior participation or knowledge, and everyone, young and old, is very welcome to join us at any time, just once or as often as it suits. We aim to create a friendly, inviting atmosphere, as good humoured as it is serious. Working together, we share our reflections on the immediate theme and try to pay as much attention to listening as to speaking. We find that studying together provides a wonderful opportunity for the whole group to advance in knowledge and understanding. Members and friends are warmly invited to groups at any time even for one-off visits. Previous participation is not necessary and there is no need to book.
    These profoundly esoteric lectures examine the laws inherent in reincarnation and karma and explore in detail the incarnations of specific historical figures. The opportunity to study this lecture series in a group affords us a chance to really get to grips with these fundamental issues, which demonstrate the realities of the workings of karma in human life. This first volume is an essential basis for such a study.
    All welcome, no need to book. Suggested donation £3/£2

    We are studying the final chapters of this seminal work - the chapters in which Steiner explores the ideas of thinkers of his own time and the essential question of how spiritual ideas can prosper in a materialistic society whose thinking excludes the existence of the spiritual world. These discussions are more pertinent than ever in a world where humanity seems so much in conflict with the natural world, which will not be ‘conquered’ by science.

    For most of the term we will continue our search to understand some things about the activity of Michael, the ruling spirit of our time. In particular, we will focus on a lecture where Dr Steiner talks about the new yoga for our time, what it is, how we can practise it and why we need it.

  • Friday 31st January
    7pm - 8.30pm
    With Philip Martyn
    Each day offers new opportunities for spiritual development. We may attribute this to karma or perhaps not notice it. Rudolf Steiner outlined numerous spiritual exercises that help us reflect on our experiences and enrich our lives. These range from immersing ourselves in nature to working with specific meditative verses. During this interactive workshop Philip will explore some meditations and spiritual exercises that are suitable for those on a modern path of spiritual development.
    Philip Martyn is a retired lawyer who has served on the council of the Anthroposophical Society and as Co General Secretary.

    We will be completing our reading of these lectures, given to members of Rudolf Steiner’s first Esoteric School between 1904 and 1906. They throw light on the content of the picture-language of myths, sagas and legends. Steiner explains that pictures are the real origin of all things – the primeval spiritual causes. To work with pictures or symbols today we first need to become acquainted with their esoteric content.

  • Thursday 6th February
    7.30pm - 9pm
    with Inessa Burdich
    In these days of materialism and intellect our feelings can become sidelined, yet it is increasingly recognised that they play a significant role in our wellbeing and affect our physical health. Our emotional body (astral body) is visible to clairvoyant research to determine how it changes with age, illness and profession, also how it is affected by life crises, our daily habits and negative spiritual influences. We will also look at practical steps to control our feelings and maintain equanimity.
    Inessa graduated as a physicist, then spent 20 years in business. She has been an active meditator for over 30 years and is a professional supersensible researcher specialising in diagnosing the spiritual components of cancer, psychosomatic illnesses, vaccination, addiction and autistic spectrum disorder.

    with David Lowe
    Regarded as one of the masterpieces of the Northern Renaissance, the Isenheim Altarpiece is little known compared to The Last Supper. The individual paintings which fold in on one another are increasingly more astonishing. The array of elemental and higher beings on display present many puzzles for the viewer whether looking at the actual painting in Colmar or looking at the paintings and their details on slides. Those who are able to look at the spiritual aspects of the paintings as well as what is artistically there can see that there are many deep truths contained within its colours and forms.

    We all have a physical body, visible through our physical eyes, but we also have several progressively subtle energy bodies which are often sensed but rarely understood. Rudolf Steiner gave much detail on our bodies of soul & spirit which together with the physical make up the complete human being.

    with Angus Jenkinson
    The mysteries were the ancient path to knowing the self, world, and cosmos. They revealed eternal truths and explained riddles of nature, soul, and spirit. Steiner’s dramatic renewal of the mysteries a century ago creatively transformed this possibility for modern humans and in doing so opened the wonder of the self to soulfulness and science. This matters individually but also for our Earth’s collective future as our unity with all beings comes clear.
    Angus Jenkinson has a deep familiarity with these themes and a life bridging many professional boundaries. He is an author of three books, including ‘From Stress to Serenity’ (Sophia Books).

    This course of six lectures was given in Leipzig in late 1913 and early 1914. They examine from the earliest times the historical pattern of man’s thoughts and spiritual development in searching for an understanding of the meaning of existence, and offer an illuminating insight into the European development of the soul life through succeeding ages. They contain themes which are only touched upon in these lectures and which Steiner never returned to after the outbreak of the First World War.

    With Richard Heys
    Working with the warmth of pastels on a coloured background we will layer and build a sense of place through veils of colour. By slowly developing these colour fields an in-scape or inner landscape arises. We will work to nurture this unique sense of place, bringing it to greater clarity by enriching the colour and developing a contrasting strength of tone. This is a practical workshop. Limited numbers so please book online or by calling RSH office.
    Richard is a practising artist exhibiting regularly in the South East and London. He works to bring presence into painting, a soul-space or countenance, which may live on in the mind of the viewer. He tutors from his studio at Emerson College.

    The renewal of the human spirit is a daily challenge for every human being. Whether or not we are conscious of this struggle, or even of this essential need of our eternal being, our development and future evolution requires the freedom of a musical journey; music which is the binding force of the universe. Experiencing Melody and Harmony can unite us with each other and with the spiritual beings who have created us and stand fully behind our development.

These discussions are more pertinent than ever in a world where humanity seems so much in conflict with the natural world, which will not be ‘conquered’ by science.

    With Jonathan Code
    Does alchemy have a contemporary relevance? It is increasingly clear the solutions to the challenges we face today are not going to be solved if we limit ourselves to the kinds of thinking which brought them about in the first place. What can alchemical principles contribute to the ‘wicked problems’ of today? We will see what can be distilled from the symbolic imagery of medieval alchemical emblems to rectify and transform our understanding, and maybe even ourselves.
    Jonathan is Director of Crossfields Learning, a department of Crossfields Europa. He has a deep interest in consciousness studies, the western esoteric tradition, holistic and natural sciences, gardening and education. His book Muck and Mind; Encountering Biodynamic Agriculture is distributed by Lindisfarne / Floris books.

    with Andrew Welburn
    Getting back to fundamentals seems to be a law of life. When we get out of touch with life’s rhythms, we can feel empty and lost, as do so many people today. But if we could see everywhere the Eternal Return - would it be a dream fulfilment, or a nightmare from which we want to escape? Spiritual teachings have grappled with such problems, and Rudolf Steiner’s vision is essentially about renewing the past in a creative way, in the details of daily life and in big ideas of evolution and reincarnation.
    Andrew Welburn has been an academic in the fields of English Literature and biblical interpretation and history. A lifelong anthroposophist, Andrew Welburn has written several books on Steiner’s philosophy, esotericism and Christianity, and on the prophet Zarathustra.

  • Friday 28th February - Sunday 1st March
    7.30pm - 1pm
    With lectures by Martina Maria Sam
    A study weekend for Members of the Anthroposophical Society
    Rudolf Steiner confided in his closest companions, Marie Steiner and Ita Wegman, his fear that one day his name could be separated from his work.  One aspect of this concern is that in the biography of a modern initiate, the life and work are one.  The life of Rudolf Steiner is an archetypal example of this interdependence.  What he wrote and spoke about came from his own experience, and the unfolding of anthroposophy is an expression of his own life.  The five lectures this weekend are an attempt to illustrate this on the basis of the notes he made about his occult schooling in conjunction with what we know from documentary and oral testimonies.  There is a significant turning point in this process before and after his initiation.  As far as 1903 we can follow his inner path with our own inner sensitivity, after that his work allows us but a peripheral view of the higher stages of his development. The mutually illuminating aspects of his life and work give us new insights into the course of his life and also a wider horizon onto anthroposophy.
    The weekend (from Friday 7.30pm till 1pm on Sunday) will include five lectures on the following themes with time for questions and discussion
    1. 1861 - 1880 Childhood and Youth: Discovering the Higher I
    2. 1880 - 1889 Student days in Vienna:  Beginnings of the inner path
    3. 1889 - 1898 From Vienna via Weimar to Berlin: Changes and Crises
    4. 1898 - 1903 Trials of the soul, Crossing the abyss, initiation
    5. 1903 - 1924 The sacrifice fulfilled: the higher stages of the inner path
    Dr Sam, an authority on Goethe’s Faust and on Rudolf Steiner’s insights into language and speech, has been engaged in the research of this theme for a number of years.  From 1997 to 2012 she led the Humanities Section of the School of Spiritual Science at the Goetheanum, and is also a eurythmist and author. She is currently working with Stefan Hasler on a new edition of Rudolf Steiner's Eurythmy Courses, is involved as editor in the six-volume edition of all of Rudolf Steiner's letters and, after last year's publication of her book "Rudolf Steiner. Childhood and Youth 1861-1884”, is now writing the second volume of his biography.
    To cover the expenses of this event we ask for a contribution of between £50 and £75.

    This course of six lectures was given in Leipzig in late 1913 and early 1914. They examine from the earliest times the historical pattern of man’s thoughts and spiritual development in searching for an understanding of the meaning of existence, and offer an illuminating insight into the European development of the soul life through succeeding ages. They contain themes which are only touched upon in these lectures and which Steiner never returned to after the outbreak of the First World War.

    There can be no other artist that Rudolf Steiner has referred to so much in his lectures. The same can be said for other anthroposophical writers who often find Steiner’s remarks too challenging. Steiner presents a very different view of Raphael than that of most art historians, especially when it comes to two of his major works the Disputa and the socalled ‘School of Athens’. Following his indications, we will survey Raphael’s life and work up to the great alteration in his life when he was in his late twenties. We will look too at the healing quality of Raphael’s work, based upon his understanding of the etheric forces working in the human being and also in the world.

There is no need for any prior participation or knowledge, and everyone, young and old, is very welcome to join us at any time, just once or as often as it suits. We aim to create a friendly, inviting atmosphere, as good humoured as it is serious. Working together, we share our reflections on the immediate theme and try to pay as much attention to listening as to speaking. We find that studying together provides a wonderful opportunity for the whole group to advance in knowledge and understanding. Members and friends are warmly invited to groups at any time even for one-off visits. Previous participation is not necessary and there is no need to book.
    We are studying the final chapters of this seminal work - the chapters in which Steiner explores the ideas of thinkers of his own time and the essential question of how spiritual ideas can prosper in a materialistic society whose thinking excludes the existence of the spiritual world. These discussions are more pertinent than ever in a world where humanity seems so much in conflict with the natural world, which will not be ‘conquered’ by science.
    All welcome, no need to book. Suggested donation £3/£2

    with Dr Peter Gruenewald
    Do you wake feeling refreshed and ready for a new day - or exhausted after a long night tossing and turning? Do you wake with answers to problems that you have ‘slept on’ or in the midst of a nightmare? Have you ever wondered what sleep actually is and why we need it? We can see sleep as crossing a threshold into the spiritual world, from which we return with the possibility of a dim echo of where we have been. Based on the insights of Rudolf Steiner and scientific research into the physiology and psychology of sleep, Peter will explore how we can improve our quality of sleep to enhance our waking lives.
    Dr Peter Gruenewald is an Anthroposophical Doctor working both in the NHS and privately as a specialist and GP. He has extensive experience of sleep disorders and how these are being researched and managed.

  • Sunday 15th March
    2pm - 5pm
    With Dr. Sue Peat and Philip Martyn
    Biodynamics is an organic method of cultivation, arising out of Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual research. It works with the rhythms of the movements of the sun, moon, planets and stars which plants respond to. The workshop will cover the background to the biodynamic planting calendar, composting and the biodynamic preparations. Participants will be invited to exchange seasonal gardening tips, ideas and experiences. For the last hour we will stir the horn manure preparation (known as 500), so bring an empty screw top bottle if you want to take some home. A 500ml bottle is enough for an average garden. The workshop is suitable for those new to biodynamics and for anyone who would like to give their garden, window boxes or house plants a spring treat!
    Philip Martyn and Dr Sue Peat are long term students of Rudolf Steiner. Philip is a retired lawyer and has previously served as CoGeneral Secretary of the Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain. Sue is a medical consultant at Kings College Hospital, with a specialist interest in pain relief and medical education.

    This course of six lectures was given in Leipzig in late 1913 and early 1914. They examine from the earliest times the historical pattern of man’s thoughts and spiritual development in searching for an understanding of the meaning of existence, and offer an illuminating insight into the European development of the soul life through succeeding ages. They contain themes which are only touched upon in these lectures and which Steiner never returned to after the outbreak of the First World War.

    7.30pm - 9pm
    With Anne de Wild
    A biography is the life of a human being from birth to death. When we think of an animal we can’t speak of a biography because the freedom humans have in acting and thinking has no parallel in animals. A person’s biography is not simply the sequence of days and years filled with incidents or occurrences that comprise their lifespan. Rather it’s a vessel that holds within itself secrets that reveal themselves when working and connecting with one’s own biography. Everything in life can be decisive and yet, when it happens, you often don’t know the full extent of its meaning.
    Anne is a naturopath and biography worker in Basel, Switzerland. She devotes the majority of her working life to biography and social art to show her clients and participants in her lectures that their lives are full of wonder and that they can draw courage from this for the challenges of everyday life. Artful listening and humour are the main ingredients she works with.

    with Denise Gell
    Rudolf Steiner inaugurated Eurythmy as a new dance form. It brings in a spiritual dimension, with gestures made mainly through expressive arm movements that bring to visibility corresponding speech or musical tones. Eurythmy has developed as both a beautiful art form and a movement therapy that has been found helpful for a wide range of conditions. In this interactive seminar Denise will be demonstrating Eurythmy movements and inviting those who would like to join in to experience its renewing and enlivening effects. All are welcome to watch or join in.
    Denise Gell is a eurythmy therapist who has taught and performed eurythmy in a variety of settings for over 20 years. She offers eurythmy therapy for groups and individuals.

    The Saturday is a workshop on Goethean Psychology, an anthroposophicallybased approach to psychology which supports self-care, well-being and personal development, as well as having therapeutic applications.It is effective for the self-care of therapists themselves, as well as a therapy for the whole range of psychotherapeutic and counselling issues - all of which are based on an anthroposophical understanding of the human being.
    Graham Kennish will introduce Rudolf Steiner’s seminal lectures, which led to a Psychology of Freedom, paralleling his Philosophy of Freedom.

    From the beginning of April, bearing in mind the 500th anniversary of the death of the artist Raphael, we will look at various texts where Rudolf Steiner and other writers have spoken about his karmic connections. We will also look at Rudolf Steiner’s last lecture where he came up with a surprising, previously unspoken connection.
    All welcome, no need to book. Suggested donation £3/£2

  • Friday 3rd April
    7.30pm - 8.45pm
    Rudolf Steiner’s scientific, spiritual research into the life of Raphael extended beyond his incarnation as a significant artist in the period known as the High Renaissance (1500 A.D.) into the previous incarnations of the individual who incarnated as Raphael and also to one subsequent incarnation. The results of his research present us with a set of deep mysteries. Looking at the paintings and the other activities in which he was engaged in the last 8 years of his life is a path into understanding some of these mysteries. To this later period belong two of the greatest works of European Art, the Sistine Madonna and Raphael’s painting of the Transfiguration.

Each workshop will explore a different aspect: the psycho-physical principle, the imagination, etc. All nine offer an overview of Chekhov’s technique.
    Sarah Kane studied Chekhov’s approach to acting with many of his students in the 1980s. She now integrates this approach into her teaching, directing and performing. www.performingartsintl.org

    Our reading groups provide the opportunity in a very informal setting to explore Rudolf Steiner’s work with others. There is no need for any prior participation or knowledge, and everyone, young and old, is very welcome to join us at any time, just once or as often as it suits. We aim to create a friendly, inviting atmosphere, as good humoured as it is serious. Working together, we share our reflections on the immediate theme and try to pay as much attention to listening as to speaking. We find that studying together provides a wonderful opportunity for the whole group to advance in knowledge and understanding. Members and friends are warmly invited to groups at any time even for one-off visits. Previous participation is not necessary and there is no need to book.

  • Thursday 4th June
    7.30pm - 9pm
    With Karsten Massei
    Nature spirits, also known as elementals, are everywhere, they are very aware of humanity and want humanity to become aware of them so that we can live and work together harmoniously. It's up to humanity to make the effort to understand the lives of our hidden neighbours, their wishes and concerns, so that we can become more directly aware of them and start to work together with the beings behind nature for our mutual benefit. This talk will be followed by a practical workshop on 6th & 7th June in Sussex, call 01342 827 967 for details.
    Karsten is a curative educator based in Zurich, he also gives courses and seminars on the practice of supersensible perception of the beings behind nature. He was a keynote speaker at the Nature Spirits and Humans 2019 conference in Nottingham and has written five books about nature spirits.
  • Friday 12th June
    7pm - 9pm
    With Rupert Spira
    This is a contemporary, experential approach involving silent meditation, guided meditation and conversation, and requires no affiliation to any particular religious or spiritual tradition. All that is needed is an interest in the essential nature of experience, and in the longing for love, peace and happiness around which most of our lives revolve.
    In his meetings, Rupert explores the perenial, non-dual understanding that lies at the heart of all the great religious and spiritual traditions, such as Adavaita Vedanta, Kashmir Shaivism, Hinduism, Buddhism, mystical Christianity, Sufism and Zen, and which is also the direct, ever-present reality of our own experience.
    Tickets cost £10 and can be purchased online via: https://non-duality.rupertspira.com/meet/#united_kingdom
