    When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. Lao Tzu
    Through conscious work with our biography, the seemingly random happenings of our lives begin to reveal a path of transformation leading towards the reality of who we are. Each person we meet along the way becomes a messenger. Every phase poses essential questions and challenges. Each turn of the road gives a glimpse of our true story. Who is writing this story? Biography work opens a way to get in touch with the author of this strange tale in which we find ourselves. Learning to read the language of the events and meetings that come to us, we can transform them into new faculties and values and find confidence and creativity for the future. In this seminar we will build an imagination of the aims and nature of biography work and, calling on our own experiences, explore the forces of transformation at work in the different phases of our lives.

    - 5pm
    With Dr. Sue Peat and Philip Martyn
    Biodynamics goes ‘beyond organic’. It arose out of Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual research and works with the rhythms of the movements of the sun, moon, planets and stars which the plants respond to. We 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 a bottle if you want to take some home. The workshop is suitable for those new to biodynamics and for anyone who would like to give their garden, window boxes or house plants an autumn treat!
    Philip Martyn and Dr Sue Peat are long term students of Rudolf Steiner. Philip is a retired lawyer and has previously served as co-General Secretary of the Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain.

  • Friday 29th November 7pm
    - 8.30pm
    We have all experienced some form of trauma in our lives and how we respond to both the events and the memory of them is critical in helping form our approach to the future. We may feel ourselves to be passive recipients of life events that have left us with severe psychological scars that seem impossible to heal or transform – maybe even causing well recognised psychological disabilities such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, phobias or extreme depression. Using the insights Rudolf Steiner has offered into the spiritual make up and karma of the human being Pablo will explore how our response and approach to these events can be worked with and transformed into something useful and helpful – both for ourselves and for others.
    Dr Pablo Jeczmien is a consultant psychiatrist and anthroposophical psychotherapist working within the NHS and privately. He has a comprehensive knowledge of Anthroposophic medicine.

    - 8.45pm
    Brueghel, the much-loved Flemish painter of the Seasons and Festivals, also expresses the runic quality of northern European art in his paintings. We do have many of his works in the UK so this is a good chance to see the range of his work, some of which are as fantastical as those of Bosch.

  • Friday 13th December 8am
    - 5pm
    Rudolf Steiner described how for ages of time humanity felt itself to be a feminine community. Gradually, as independent thinking and logical reasoning developed, humanity became more and more reliant on sensory observation, systems and laws – and inherent human wisdom was no longer trusted. How did the Christ Being address this during his life on earth and, in particular, in his meetings with women? How did he transform the ‘feminine’ stream for the future of humanity and where do we see this working today?

  • Saturday 21st December 2pm
    - 6pm
    An experiential workshop and performance of the Paradise Play tith Geoffrey and Maria Norris
    The Christmas plays from Oberufer represent a continuation of the medieval mystery drama tradition and offer deep insights into spiritual truths. The Paradise Play portrays creation and ‘the fall’ together with the spiritual forces that lie behind the events we see acted out on the stage. The workshop will offer the opportunity to experience the play in song, speech and eurythmy and to explore how these art forms carry its message. The afternoon will conclude with a performance of the play directed by Geoffrey Norris.

  • Friday 3rd January 7pm
    - 9pm
    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 £10 and can be purchased online via: https://non-duality.rupertspira.com/meet/#united_kingdom

    - Sunday 1st March 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 1861 - 1880 Childhood and Youth: Discovering the Higher I 1880 - 1889 Student days in Vienna:  Beginnings of the inner path 1889 - 1898 From Vienna via Weimar to Berlin: Changes and Crises 1898 - 1903 Trials of the soul, Crossing the abyss, initiation 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. For more information and concessions, please contact

    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!
