  • Friday 20 May
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Sebastian Parsons

    The Foundation Stone Meditation was given by Rudolf Steiner to support the members in the re-founding of the Anthroposophical Society. The Society is an organisation – a shared endeavour – and the meditation draws together the fundamental teaching of Anthroposophy to support the members in their striving. It can also support us in our daily lives at work and at home, wherever we are in a collaborative environment striving for the good.

    Sebastian Parsons has been a businessman and a student of spiritual science for over 30 years. He built the Dr. Hauschka skincare brand in the UK, founded the Stockwood Community Benefit Society, has chaired a number of charities including the Biodynamic Agricultural Association and West Midlands Eurythmy Association, and now works in finance in Stourbridge.

    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 to which the plants respond. 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 winter treat!

    Dr. Sue Peat is an enthusiastic biodynamic gardener and long term student of Rudolf Steiner’s work. She is a medical consultant at a London Teaching Hospital, with a specialist interest in pain relief.

    All welcome, no need to book. £10 / £5 concessions

  • Monday 23 May
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Trevor Dance

    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.

  • Tuesday 24 May
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Brendan McQuillan

    These nine lectures published in English as The East in the Light of the West were given in Munich in 1909 and are subtitled The Children of Lucifer and the Brothers of Christ. The English title could also have been The South in the Light of the North since the lectures contrast the two streams of spiritual culture and initiation that emerged from Atlantis: a Northern stream to the macrocosmic ‘upper’ gods through the outer gate of the physical senses, and a Southern stream to the microcosmic ‘lower’ gods through the inner gate of the soul life. Steiner points out that both paths lead to the same spiritual goal and are mediated and drawn together by the Impulse of Christ.

  • Wednesday 25 May
    2am - 5pm

    with Trevor Dance

    Rudolf Steiner regarded this book as the underpinning of every aspect of anthroposophy. It is a practical guide - if we want to become free we have to strive through our inner activity, our unconscious urges and habits of thought. Freedom is not lack of restraint, but the attainment of a world view that sees through all illusions, recognizes no limits to knowledge and opens the portal of the reality of the spiritual world.

    All welcome - no prior knowledge assumed.

  • Wednesday 25 May
    4.15pm - 5.45pm

    with Dagmar Steffelbauer

    It was formerly published as Man as Symphony of the Creative Word. Rudolf Steiner begins by speaking about our inner relationship to three ancient and sacred representatives of the animal kingdom - eagle, lion, bull- and to the forces of the cosmos that form them. He goes on to deepen these themes by approaching the plant and animal worlds in the context of planetary and cosmic evolution. Then he introduces the elemental nature spirits who work with plants and animals. He also is describing the cooperation they offer to humankind.

    Finally, the human being – the ‘harmony of the Creative Word’ - is placed at the heart of this spiritual celebration of life. You are warmly invited to join the study group.

  • Friday 27 May
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Adrian Locher*

    We can work with speech to address our souls and tell ourselves of the wonders of our own being. We can tell ourselves how the soul lives in the body and in what we do, feel and think. The aim is summed up in the aspiration expressed in the final lines ‘That good may become…..’ of the actions that we found in the realm of the heart, and direct with clear thinking. Come and join in – whether you’ve worked with the foundation stone for years or are totally new to it.

    Voluntary donations towards costs and overheads are gratefully received and can be made by transfer to a Nationwide account held for this purpose.

    The session will take the form of a talk and some reading from the four Mystery Dramas,
    exploring Steiner’s methods and development as a dramatist. I will be using the Hans
    Pusch translation, but do not worry if you have another version or no book at all, as the
    readings will be brief.

  • Monday 30 May
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Dr. Sue Peat

    This book outlines a sure path from the everyday world of physical existence into a living, personal experience of the spiritual world. We will be carefully following the text together, discussing how we may best apply the spiritual exercises Rudolf Steiner outlines in it to our own lives and experiencing how working with these exercises can be a transformative experience.

    All are very welcome, whether you are new to the work of Steiner, or have worked with these exercises before.

  • Wednesday 1 June
    2pm - 4pm

    with William Bishop

    At the end of 1917, after four years of war in Europe, Rudolf Steiner spoke out in these 14 lectures on the spiritual impulses behind the Great War, behind humanity’s attempts to build theoretically perfect social orders, and behind many divisions and disruptions that would continue to occur on the earth. So reads the blurb on this book of lectures that we will read and discuss together.

  • Thursday 2 June
    7.30pm - 9pm

    with Karsten Massei

    Nature spirits, also known as elementals, pervade the whole of nature, both creating and maintaining it. They are very aware of humanity and a potential future where we work together, however humanity is largely unaware of them and often unconsciously mistreats them. Karsten will show how we can start to enter into a conscious and beneficial alliance with the beings of Nature for our mutual development and a healthy future for our planet. Karsten will be speaking again on the same topic at Emerson College on Friday 3rd June followed by a weekend workshop, please see www.emerson.org.uk/events for full details.

    He was born in Berlin in 1963 and has worked as a curative educator in Switzerland for the last 30 years. Karsten developed his clairvoyance through spending time with medicinal herbs in their natural environment, and has written six books on Nature Spirits, including The School of the Elemental Beings which has been translated into English. He was a keynote speaker at the Nature Spirits and Humans conference in 2019 and gave a workshop in the Weleda herbal medicine garden.

    £10 (£7 students with ID) pay on the door, no cards.

  • Friday 3 June
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Dr. Douglas Miller

    On a stormy night in late September 1913 in Dornach Switzerland Rudolf Steiner laid the dodecahedral copper Foundation Stone for a building that was to serve as the centre for the work of the Anthroposophical Society. Nearly a decade later that building, constructed by an international group of artisans as a world war raged, was lost to an arsonist’s fire on New Year’s Eve Vowing to continue, Rudolf Steiner set about rebuilding, and he laid a newFoundation Stone during the refounding of the Anthroposophical Society at Christmas 1923—this time in the form of a meditation for Society members. Dr. Miller’s presentation will offer an opportunity to explore the importance of these two foundation stones—their relationship and meaning for anthroposophy, for the work of Rudolf Steiner, and for the world.

    Dr. Douglas Miller is a retired professor of German at the University of Michigan–Flint in the United States; his research, publication, and lecturing has focused on Goethe’s accomplishments as a scientist and writer, as well as on the history and meaning of Rudolf Steiner and anthroposophy.

    These nine lectures published in English as The East in the Light of the West were given in Munich in 1909 and are subtitled The Children of Lucifer and the Brothers of Christ. The English title could also have been The South in the Light of the North since the lectures contrast the two streams of spiritual culture and initiation that emerged from Atlantis: a Northern stream to the macrocosmic ‘upper’ gods through the outer gate of the physical senses, and a Southern stream to the microcosmic ‘lower’ gods through the inner gate of the soul life. Steiner points out that both paths lead to the same spiritual goal and are mediated and drawn together by the Impulse of Christ.

    At the end of 1917, after four years of war in Europe, Rudolf Steiner spoke out in these 14 lectures on the spiritual impulses behind the Great War, behind humanity’s attempts to build theoretically perfect social orders, and behind many divisions and disruptions that would continue to occur on the earth. So reads the blurb on this book of lectures that we will read and discuss together.

    Rudolf Steiner regarded this book as the underpinning of every aspect of anthroposophy. It is a practical guide - if we want to become free we have to strive through our inner activity, our unconscious urges and habits of thought. Freedom is not lack of restraint, but the attainment of a world view that sees through all illusions, recognizes no limits to knowledge and opens the portal of the reality of the spiritual world.

    All welcome - no prior knowledge assumed.

    with Dagmar Steffelbauer

    It was formerly published as Man as Symphony of the Creative Word. Rudolf Steiner begins by speaking about our inner relationship to three ancient and sacred representatives of the animal kingdom - eagle, lion, bull- and to the forces of the cosmos that form them. He goes on to deepen these themes by approaching the plant and animal worlds in the context of planetary and cosmic evolution. Then he introduces the elemental nature spirits who work with plants and animals. He also is describing the cooperation they offer to humankind.

    Finally, the human being – the ‘harmony of the Creative Word’ - is placed at the heart of this spiritual celebration of life. You are warmly invited to join the study group.

    with Dr. Peter Gruenewald

    As we work with the Foundation Stone we can experience our soul living in our body in all three ‘systems’ – the ‘metabolic limb’ system – generating energy and enabling us to move, the ‘rhythmic’ system – made up of the heart and lungs and the 'sense nervous’ system – centred in the head. Peter will outline how a healthy working together of the soul within these three systems brings us to a deeper understanding of ourselves as both physical and spiritual beings.

    Peter Gruenewald is an Anthroposophical Doctor working both in the NHS and privately as a specialist and GP. He has a specialist interest in cardiovascular physiology and in how new insights into heart function are leading to a deeper understanding of its central place in our physiology.

    The Heart forces are central to the Foundation Stone Meditation, and as we work with it, we realise that the ongoing development of the forces of love, the Christ forces, are central to both our development as human beings, and to the development of humanity as a whole. New impulses are founded within our hearts and consciously focussed with ever renewing, living thinking.

    Eric Klein was born and raised in an 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.

    Rudolf Steiner’s almost overwhelming challenge to us in the great Foundation meditation can leave us feeling inadequate even to start. But in reality, it has many surprisingly friendly features and there are manifold ways we can grapple with it. It also can help us feel that we are not alone as we face the future but have around us a world of spiritual beings and resources. So let’s try!

    Dr. Andrew Welburn has been an academic in the fields of English Literature and biblical interpretation and history. A life-long anthroposophist, he has written several books on Steiner’s philosophy, esotericism and Christianity, and on the prophet Zarathustra.

    with Dr. Sue Peat

    This book outlines a sure path from the everyday world of physical existence into a living, personal experience of the spiritual world. We will be carefully following the text together, discussing how we may best apply the spiritual exercises Rudolf Steiner outlines in it to our own lives and experiencing how working with these exercises can be a transformative experience.

    All are very welcome, whether you are new to the work of Steiner, or have worked with these exercises before.

    These nine lectures published in English as The East in the Light of the West were given in Munich in 1909 and are subtitled The Children of Lucifer and the Brothers of Christ. The English title could also have been The South in the Light of the North since the lectures contrast the two streams of spiritual culture and initiation that emerged from Atlantis: a Northern stream to the macrocosmic ‘upper’ gods through the outer gate of the physical senses, and a Southern stream to the microcosmic ‘lower’ gods through the inner gate of the soul life. Steiner points out that both paths lead to the same spiritual goal and are mediated and drawn together by the Impulse of Christ.

    At the end of 1917, after four years of war in Europe, Rudolf Steiner spoke out in these 14 lectures on the spiritual impulses behind the Great War, behind humanity’s attempts to build theoretically perfect social orders, and behind many divisions and disruptions that would continue to occur on the earth. So reads the blurb on this book of lectures that we will read and discuss together.

    Is hope just a wild fantasy that in reality can never be fulfilled? Should we take care with what we hope for, or perhaps never allow ourselves to hope for anything? The Foundation Stone invites us to open ourselves to a deep power of hope that is relevant and present and can be consciously cultivated in our spiritual lives.

    Peter Van Breda lives in London and is a priest of The Christian Community, a movement for religious renewal.

    with Trevor Dance

    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.

    4.15pm - 5.45pm

    with Margitta Ogundare and Dagmar Steffelbauer

    It was formerly published as Man as Symphony of the Creative Word. Rudolf Steiner begins by speaking about our inner relationship to three ancient and sacred representatives of the animal kingdom - eagle, lion, bull- and to the forces of the cosmos that form them. He goes on to deepen these themes by approaching the plant and animal worlds in the context of planetary and cosmic evolution. Then he introduces the elemental nature spirits who work with plants and animals. He also is describing the cooperation they offer to humankind.

    Finally, the human being – the ‘harmony of the Creative Word’ - is placed at the heart of this spiritual celebration of life. You are warmly invited to join the study group.

    Awakening Our Connection across the Threshold

    At Emerson College, Forest Row, East Sussex

    Many of us have experienced loss and bereavement of loved ones at first hand. We may also fondly remember individuals who were active in our anthroposophical circles and have crossed the Threshold. Where are they now? How can we reach them? How can we support them and, no less importantly, how can we enable them to support us in these challenging times, when so many of our anthroposophical institutions have closed down or are facing huge challenges?
    What part do the spiritual Hierarchies play in this? How can we learn to recognise them in our meditative life? How can we learn to work with them in ways that are truly fruitful not just for ourselves but for humanity as a whole? In fact, how do we know what is truthful and what is perhaps delusional? In addition, how can we connect with the elemental beings around us and work with them consciously? These are questions we may carry, but often they remain personal and private.

    Nevertheless, working with and caring for beings on the other side of the threshold is as important for our world as the practical love and support we offer to our fellow human beings around us. During this year’s conference for members and friends of the AS in GB, we want to explore these themes in an atmosphere of warmth and trusting care for one another and the beings that surround us in the spiritual worlds.

    We shall have three key speakers to guide us through these themes - Bodo Von Plato from Germany, Interfaith minister Annie Blampied-Radojcin and Tom Ravetz, Lenker of The Christian Community in Great Britain. They will offer their insights and facilitate ways for us to ponder and share in smaller groups. There will be creative and artistic workshops to choose from, which will seek to bring aspects of the spiritual world to us from their different approaches - through Eurythmy with Diana Fischer, the Spoken Word with Adrian Locher, Painting with Mary Anne Paterson, Creative Writing with Paul Matthews, Connecting with the world of Elemental Beings with Michael Fuller and Biographical review and storytelling with Annette Gordon.

    Later in the afternoons there will be Panel Talks, where a number of people will share their research and experiences on topics such as Reading to the Dead, Near Death Experiences and Life before Birth, which will then be followed by contributions from the floor.

    Regarding the evening events, Bodo Von Plato will speak on the opening evening.

    On Thursday August 4th, at 7.30pm there will be a Eurythmy performance, followed by eurythmy, speech and collaborative audience involvement. There will be a Celebration of the Dead on Friday evening, with music and contributions from conference participants. On the last evening we hope to have a Ceilidh. Although the conference is open to full time participants only, local members and friends are very welcome to attend the evening Eurythmy event on Thursday, August 4th, and join the Ceilidh on Saturday August 6th.

    To register, please book online at: https://emerson.org.uk/event/anthroposophical-summer-school-awakening-our-connection-across-the-threshold/

    In these annual summer conferences we address relevant themes in the light of Rudolf Steiner’s anthroposophy and seek to deepen our understanding and practice of the path of inner development. After a a two-year gap, when we were unable to meet, we have chosen a theme we feel addresses a real need of this present time.

  • Thursday 4 August
    6.45pm - 8.15pm

    with Iaia Chiesa

    As one of the recognised tasks of Anthroposophy, we will be reading to the so-called dead, to establish and/or reestablish a connection with the dear ones who have crossed the threshold.

    Please contact Iaia Chiesa via email to join the group: iaiac53@yahoo.com
