  • Tuesday 23 January 9am - Saturday 1 June 7pm

    Bringing together the worlds of painting and poetry, image and text, this stunning exhibition is a harvest of the collaborations between Sir Ben Okri and Rosemary Clunie. Preoccupied by the shadows and beauty of the world, the climate change crisis, social injustices, creativity and playfulness, the marvel that is colour, the enigma that is form -these painting come from two artists steeped in the spiritual and artistic traditions.

  • Monday 26 February
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Dr Sue Peat and Adrian Hotten

    Rudolf Steiner’s collection of fifty-two meditative verses were first published in German in 1912. These verses, representing the fifty-two weeks of the year, begin with Easter week and offer thoughts that help us find a deeper relationship with the spiritual forces at work throughout the year.

    ‘You should take these meditations quite particularly into your hearts, for they contain what can make the soul alive and what really corresponds to a living relationship of the soul forces to the forces of the macrocosm.’ - Rudolf Steiner, CW 40, 1912

    Each verse appears alongside the corresponding opposite verse for the week, that represents a kind of mirror, or compensating force during the year. In listening to the changing language of the year we can rediscover our individual nature. These verses help to awaken a feeling of unity with nature while simultaneously stimulating a discovery of the self. We will mainly be using the Ruth & Hans Pusch translation of the verses and The Year Participated, an interpretation and translation by Owen Barfield. Both are readily available to purchase or can be found on the internet. Members of the Meetup group already receive the verses week by week by email. Come and join us as we continue to work our way through the changing nature of the year.

  • Tuesday 27 February
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Brendan McQuillan

    In lecture 2 of ‘Lucifer and Ahriman’ (GA 101) Rudolf Steiner likens their influence upon us to two scales of a balance whose beam we need to hold in equilibrium. One way for us to achieve this that Steiner speaks of is to permeate with a strongly Luciferic element what has an Ahrimanic form within us. Rather puzzlingly he adds that since nothing is more Ahrimanic than the delusion of material knowledge, then if we can be filled with fiery enthusiasm and interest by the deceptions that arise out of chemistry, physics, astronomy and the like, then through this Luciferic interest we can wrest from Ahriman what is his own. All welcome.

  • Wednesday 28 February
    2pm - 4pm

    with William Bishop

    In these four lectures it is proposed that there are twelve main hilosophical viewpoints. Understanding them can enable us to see the orld from the point of view of another person, which is essential today. This study can also encourage reflection on Rudolf Steiner’s insight that the human being can be seen as a thought which is thought by the hierarchies of the cosmos. Participants will be encouraged to make ndividual presentations to deepen mutual understanding.

Steiner reflects in them on the two stage evolutionary process involved in the foming of the human spinal column and brain, contrasts conscious and unconscious processes in the various human organs, considers the archetypes of the nervous system and blood in the astral body and the ‘I’ (ego), and looks at the organic processes that accompany some spiritual exercises in order to explain their effect.

  • Friday 1 March
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Francis Beadle

    Sometimes simply playing with the sound of a word reveals its essence. Karma, ‘Car’ ‘Ma’, is how we travel in our journey through Mother Nature. Cause and effect. Too often we are lost in it. Not understanding how we ended up where we don’t want to be. So how do we gain at least some control of the wheel? Through Dharma. ‘Da’ ‘Ma.’ The union of Heaven (the Father principle) with Mother Earth. Living a spiritual life. But on a day-to-day level, what does this mean? In this informal workshop, Francis will be offering insights from different esoteric schools on the practical challenge that karma presents us with, whilst also inviting other people to share their stories.

    Francis Beadle is a student of Anthroposophy and a member of the School of Spiritual Science; a disciple of the Linji Chan (Zen) and Hanmi (Tantric Buddhist) lineage holder Dechan Jeuren; and a former Kundalini Yoga teacher and Deeksha giver. He is also a retired Psychodynamic Counsellor.

    All welcome, no need to book, no charge. Voluntary donations towards costs are gratefully received and can be made by transfer to a Nationwide account held for this purpose.

    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.

    ANNA DOROTHEA MUTTERER - biography:

    Anna Dorothea Mutterer has won numerous competitions at national and international level, including the International Mozart Competition in Berlin, the Concours International de Violon in Cambrai (France), the Malta International Music Competition, the Melbourne International Violin Competition in Australia, and the IBLA Grand Prize in Sicily.

    Her 1st Prize at the New York CAI Competition was awarded with a recital in Carnegie Hall in March 2019, for which she was then given the Outstanding Live Performance Award.

    Anna Dorothea's concert activities have taken her throughout Germany and Europe to Mexico, the USA, Australia and New Zealand. Praised for her sonorous sound and her individual, heartfelt musicality, she regularly performs as a soloist with orchestra, in solo recitals and in various chamber music settings. Numerous engagements as a concertmaster complete the violinist's activities.

    She has worked with conductors such as Lior Shambadal, Alois Springer, Vitali Alekseenok, Marc Montusi, Jorge Vasquez, Markus Hubert, Anatoli Schura and Osvaldo Ferreira. Her chamber music partners include Philippe Graffin, Alexandra Troussova, Benedikt Kloeckner, Gwylim Janssens, Louis Demetrius Alvanis, Philippe Tondre and Gary Levinson.

    She has performed as soloist and concertmaster with the German Chamber Orchestra, the PrimArte Orchestra Frankfurt, the Santec Music Orchestra, the Thuringia Philharmony, l'Orchestre Philharmonique des Hauts de France, the Wellington Orchestra, the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestra Filharmonia di Xalapa and the Narva Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2023, she has also been appointed as concertmaster of the European Sounds of Change Orchestra.

    In 2020, Anna Dorothea Mutterer created Duo Befluegelt (Inspired) with pianist Timo Boecking - a crossover project that connects music from all centuries and styles, and combines it with text and poetry.

    During Covid-19, Anna Dorothea discovered fitness and martial arts training for herself. Fascinated by the harmony of these movements and in particular by the extremely positive effect they have on one's own physique and psyche, she started an education as a martial arts and fitness coach, visited numerous courses and was also trained as a BodyArt instructor.

    In the following years, she developed a concept that focuses on the physical and mental health of musicians and approaches the stresses and strains of professional musicians. To this day, more and more musicians are being convinced by the holistic nature of this concept and integrate "Fit Frequency" into their daily lives.

    Besides music, Anna Dorothea's passions are animals, nature, photography, books and sports. She is actively involved in animal and environmental protection and sponsors a child in Cambodia.

    LOUIS DEMETRIUS ALVANIS - biography:

    Since his highly acclaimed Royal Festival Hall concerto debut before a capacity audience, London-born pianist Louis Demetrius Alvanis has established an international career and a reputation as a musician of outstanding brilliance and sensitivity, performing in Europe, the USA, the Far East and throughout the UK; in London he has played solo recitals in the major concert halls such as the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Fairfield Halls, St John’s Smith Square, Wigmore Hall and Barbican Hall. His performances have been broadcast widely, on BBC Radio, Classic FM, NTV Japan, Polish Television and Radio, ITV, Swiss Television, French Radio, Netherlands Radio, ERT, CBC (Greece and Cyprus), Radio New Zealand amongst others, in addition to North America’s classical music radio network.

    The Daily Telegraph critic described his playing as "a truly astonishing fire and force" whilst the Evening Standard reviewer wrote "Amid shimmering right hand chords, Alvanis picked out essential melodic lines and daubed them onto the evening, like a graffiti artist out on a spraying spree. His touch was magical. The music swelled powerfully and the piano roared... the sound is with me still”.

    Parallel to his career as a solo artist, Alvanis is active as a chamber musician and has performed with many international ensembles and soloists including violinists Ayako Yoshida, Kyung Wha Chung, and more recently Anna Dorothea Mutterer.

    His CDs appear on the Meridian and Brilliant Classics labels, both featuring Alvanis’ bestseller album of the complete Hungarian Dances by Brahms. Following the release of his CD of Chopin's Three Piano Sonatas, Fanfare Magazine, USA commented “This is playing of a gifted and greatly cultivated Chopin pianist. Alvanis is an artist who makes most other pianists sound a wee bit routine” with the publication rating his interpretation of Chopin’s Piano Sonata No.1 as the best available recorded version of the work.

    Louis Demetrius Alvanis is a Steinway Artist.

    A dancer and a poet respond to the ecological catastrophe, facing humanity. Charlotte Jarvis, choreographer and dance artist, presents this dance-drama with poet and novelist Sir Ben Okri, about life as a constant improvisation. They interweave to create something new and intimate, political and meditative. Poetry responds to movement and movement to poetry. Along the way they brush against history, the secret lives of women, the passions of motherhood, and the toughness of hope. Each day brings new challenges, but dance and poetry respond with ritual and improvisation to the heart of the mystery of life.

    10am - 5pm

    A sequence of one-day workshops running from September 2023 – July 2024

    with Sarah Kane

    The one-day workshops planned for weekends at Rudolf Steiner House in 2023 and 2024 aim to provide an overview over the core elements of Michael Chekhov’s acting technique that he continued to develop throughout his life.  They range from the very beginnings of any serious artistic research and exploration to the finer points of developing a stage life and creating character, including the character’s psychological gesture.

    Each workshop will be an entirety in itself and can be taken individually; priority will be given to those wishing to enrol in the three groups of workshops ( September – December, January – March, April – July) and in the entire series. 

    Please bring clothes and shoes suitable for movement as a well as a piece of text such as a monologue or poem known by heart, so that it can be used in the exploration of any aspect of the technique in practice.

    Part 1: THE IMAGINATION
    September - December 2023

    In the first four sessions, we explored ways we can engage with our imagination as an essential pillar in Michael Chekhov’s approach to the actor’s creative process.

    Part 2: FROM MOVEMENT TO GESTURE
    January - April

    These three sessions explore the other ‘pillar’ of Michael Chekhov’s technique, the intimate and immediate link between movement and an actor’s psychology, to help with the process of transforming into character:

    The Psychophysical Basics II
    Saturday 9 March 10am - 5pm
    (previously 28 January)
    This second workshop on the psychophysical will investigate how the archetypal gestures can be further individualised in preparation for creating a psychological gesture to express the embodied essence of the character.

    TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE or in person at the Bookshop (on the day)

    Part 3: CREATING CHARACTER
    May - June (Dates to be confirmed)

    Three sessions:
    The Imaginary Body

    with Dr Sue Peat and Adrian Hotten

    Rudolf Steiner’s collection of fifty-two meditative verses were first published in German in 1912. These verses, representing the fifty-two weeks of the year, begin with Easter week and offer thoughts that help us find a deeper relationship with the spiritual forces at work throughout the year.
    ‘You should take these meditations quite particularly into your hearts, for they contain what can make the soul alive and what really corresponds to a living relationship of the soul forces to the forces of the macrocosm.’ - Rudolf Steiner, CW 40, 1912

    Each verse appears alongside the corresponding opposite verse for the week, that represents a kind of mirror, or compensating force during the year. In listening to the changing language of the
    year we can rediscover our individual nature. These verses help to awaken a feeling of unity with nature while simultaneously stimulating a discovery of the self. We will mainly be using the Ruth & Hans Pusch translation of the verses and The Year Participated, an interpretation and translation by Owen Barfield. Both are readily available to purchase or can be found on the internet. Members of the Meetup group already receive the verses week by week by email. Come and join us as we continue to work our way through the changing nature of the year.

    with Brendan McQuillan

    In lecture 2 of ‘Lucifer and Ahriman’ (GA 101) Rudolf Steiner likens their influence upon us to two scales of a balance whose beam we need to hold in equilibrium. One way for us to achieve this that Steiner speaks of is to permeate with a strongly Luciferic element what has an Ahrimanic form within us. Rather puzzlingly he adds that since nothing is more Ahrimanic than the delusion of material knowledge, then if we can be filled with fiery enthusiasm and interest by the deceptions that arise out of chemistry, physics, astronomy and the like, then through this Luciferic interest we can wrest from Ahriman what is his own. All welcome.

    In these four lectures it is proposed that there are twelve main hilosophical viewpoints. Understanding them can enable us to see the orld from the point of view of another person, which is essential today. This study can also encourage reflection on Rudolf Steiner’s insight that the human being can be seen as a thought which is thought by the hierarchies of the cosmos. Participants will be encouraged to make ndividual presentations to deepen mutual understanding.

    with Marjatta van Boeschoten

    Developing inner resources for living a more conscious and creative life

    Each of us has the capacity to reach a calm inner space, from where we can draw on our deepest resources to build strong foundations for life. Meditation helps us strengthen the quality of our attention, be more awake and present in the moment and open to fresh possibilities and horizons for the future. From this vantage point we can take up the multiple challenges of life with greater equanimity, resilience, insight and enthusiasm.

    In these three workshops, Marjatta van Boeschoten will draw on indications and exercises given by Rudolf Steiner for developing a western, contemporary meditative practice. Each session will contain content, exercises and conversation and is suitable for both newcomers and those already experienced in meditative practice.

    Marjatta practised as a lawyer, then founded a management consultancy specialising in human development at work. She is the General Secretary of the Anthroposophical Society.

    £10 (£8 conc.) per session
    £25 (£ 20 conc.) for all 3 sessions

    Saturday, 10am-1pm & 2.30-5.30pm workshops, 7pm evening lectures + Q&A
    Sunday, 10am - 3.45pm workshop

    Throughout Rudolf Steiner’s years of lecturing, he warned about the dangers as well as the necessary role of technology in our evolution. In his last Letters to Members, he explained how evolution has brought us to a mastery of the physical, of Nature, but also of how technology will pull us down into a new realm, the realm of sub-nature. This is unavoidable and throughout his lectures where he discusses the dangers of technology, Steiner also offered us counterbalances. To balance our exposure to sub-nature, we must learn to consciously enter the realms of super-nature (the etheric and astral realms). Eurythmy, a movement artform first developed by Rudolf Steiner, will be shown to be an important counterbalancing activity, among others.
    This conference is created by MysTech, a non-profit organization based in Seattle, USA. MysTech seeks to advance humanity’s moral cultivation of technology through Spiritual Science. It is devoted to cultivating a relationship between humanity and machine that will be healthy and helpful for future evolution.

Steiner reflects in them on the two stage evolutionary process involved in the foming of the human spinal column and brain, contrasts conscious and unconscious processes in the various human organs, considers the archetypes of the nervous system and blood in the astral body and the ‘I’ (ego), and looks at the organic processes that accompany some spiritual exercises in order to explain their effect.

    A man about to kill himself falls asleep and dreams of a beautiful, future earth, where people live in harmony with each other and nature. When he wakes, he has only one purpose: to persuade the world that what he has seen is possible. Will people listen? Will humanity wake up to his vision of a peaceful planet, where men and women love each other and live cooperatively with nature and the animals. Or are we doomed to repeat the old, terrible cycles of war and destruction? Based on a short story by the great nineteenth-century author Dostoyevsky, The Dream of a Ridiculous Man is a Russian Christmas Carol, relocated to modern London. Poignant but funny, a tale of wonder, full of warning, this exquisite one-person piece will leave you uplifted and full of hope for a better world.

    with Eric Klein

    In his lectures on Karma Rudolf Steiner offers us some fascinating insights into how the working of karma is not just
    limited to what we experience together whilst in physical incarnation. In his consideration of the school of Chartres, Steiner offers the following thoughts ‘a kind of supersensible exchange of ideas took place between the Platonic souls from the School of Chartres who were now coming up into the spiritual world through the gate of death and the Aristotelian souls who had remained above.’ Eric will share his experience of recently visiting Chartres and his thoughts on how we can experience the legacy of this working together.

    Eric Klein was born and raised in ann Anthroposophic home in New York, educated at the Rudolf Steiner School in New York City, before training as a concert musician at the Manhattan School of Music. His life’s journey has gone through Harvard Business School, the Christian Community Seminary in Stuttgart, Germany before settling in England in 2002. He has worked as a performing musician, composer, conductor, teacher and lecturer.

    10am - 5pm

    A sequence of one-day workshops running from September 2023 – July 2024

    with Sarah Kane

    The one-day workshops planned for weekends at Rudolf Steiner House in 2023 and 2024 aim to provide an overview over the core elements of Michael Chekhov’s acting technique that he continued to develop throughout his life.  They range from the very beginnings of any serious artistic research and exploration to the finer points of developing a stage life and creating character, including the character’s psychological gesture.

    Each workshop will be an entirety in itself and can be taken individually; priority will be given to those wishing to enrol in the three groups of workshops ( September – December, January – March, April – July) and in the entire series. 

    Please bring clothes and shoes suitable for movement as a well as a piece of text such as a monologue or poem known by heart, so that it can be used in the exploration of any aspect of the technique in practice.

    Part 1: THE IMAGINATION
    September - December 2023

    In the first four sessions, we explored ways we can engage with our imagination as an essential pillar in Michael Chekhov’s approach to the actor’s creative process.

    Part 2: FROM MOVEMENT TO GESTURE
    January - April

    These three sessions explore the other ‘pillar’ of Michael Chekhov’s technique, the intimate and immediate link between movement and an actor’s psychology, to help with the process of transforming into character:

    Words and Text as Movement and Gesture
    Saturday 30 March* 10am - 5pm

    Inspired by Rudolf Steiner’s development of the art of eurythmy and then his lectures on speech for the stage in 1923, Chekhov’s approach also includes exploration of text first as movement, then as gesture.

    *Previously 20th April

    TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE or in person at the Bookshop (on the day)

    Part 3: CREATING CHARACTER
    May - June (Dates to be confirmed)

    Lecture by Frank Burdich

    Reading about elemental beings or nature spirits can leave an abstract impression of something not quite real. Frank has been actively collaborating with the elemental world for more than ten years and so can speak from a wealth of experience about their nature, purpose, and structure, as well as their desire to work with humans. He will also present different methods for perceiving them.

    Frank Burdich was for 14 years an Upper School science teacher at a Waldorf School in Germany during which time he pursued an Anthroposophical spiritual path and became clairvoyant. He has been lecturing on supersensible perception since 2007, and in 2012 founded his own supersensible research company Gesellschaft für angewandte Geistesforschung mbH which provides supersensible research services in a range of contexts such as medicine preparation, mistletoe based remedies, oncology, special needs conditions and the spiritual audit of buildings, as well as lecturing and giving workshops on a variety of spiritual topics.

    £10 cash on the door.

    Frank will be giving two further lectures as well as a 1.5 day workshop at Emerson College in the days following this lecture. See www.emerson.org.uk for full details

    Lecture by Thomas Mayer­

    We all live together with the deceased. The souls who are in spiritual regions support us from within with strength, love, trust and inspiration. The more we open ourselves to them and reciprocate their friendship, the better they can do this. Thomas Mayer has been in conscious contact with many deceased people for over 20 years and will talk about this in his lecture.

    He will also describe how the normal after-death path leads to the next incarnation. Nowadays however, many souls can no longer find their way into the light, spiritual world, and end up in dead ends, in entangled unhealthy states. In their distress, they then occupy other people, siphon off energy, and cause spiritual, mental and physical difficulties and social strife. Thomas Mayer has been helping such deceased people to overcome their obstacles for many years and has observed that energy blockages in places and houses, or depression, panic, fears or deep grief in a possessed person, have been released as a result. Such connections have so far been underestimated in the public consciousness. Conversely, the incidence of mental illness is increasing rapidly. The good news is that we are not at the mercy of this. It is possible to help affected people and the deceased.

    Thomas Mayer is a Meditation teacher, civil rights activist, and author of ‘Answering the Call of the Elementals’ published by Findhorn Press, ‘Overcoming Fear - Exercises for Spiritual Self-Defense’ and ‘Covid Vaccines from a Spiritual Perspective’.

    Thomas will be leading a workshop on Anthroposophical Meditation, as well as outdoor exercises to contact elementals and exercises to connect to the deceased, at Emerson College from 7pm Friday 20th September to 12.30pm Sunday 22nd September.

  • Friday 11 October 5pm - Sunday 13 October 1pm

    How can we work creatively in our increasingly dehumanising culture?  The  growing prevalence of AI and Transhumanism is socially corrosive.  Can we hone the necessary discernment to engage healthily with the possibilities of our modern technology without becoming enthralled by its debilitating effects?  This weekend seminar will identify the threats to our still unfinished human evolution, and also explore the inner practicesthrough which we can develop spiritual resilience, and cultivate our true human potential.    

    Our speakers will include Jeremy Naydler and Edwin Hübner.   

    Programme and seminar fee to be announced.
