  • Friday 24th January
    7pm - 8.30pm

    With Geoffrey Norris

    This interactive seminar will offer participants the opportunity to hear words spoken, and experience speaking, in a completely new way. Carefully led by Geoff we will explore for ourselves how vowels are formed - resounding within and through us – and how we can relate to them as hidden spiritual forces that work within our words and language. No experience of acting or speaking is expected or required.

    Geoffrey Norris is a speech artist, actor and director with a profound understanding of sound, word and language arising out of having worked with the insights of Rudolf Steiner for many years.

  • 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.

  • Friday 14th February
    7pm - 8.30pm
    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).

  • Friday 21st February
    7pm - 8.30pm
    with Eric Klein
    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.
    Eric Klein was born in the USA and studied music. He is a violinist and teacher with a particular interest in the development of human thought.

  • Friday 28th February
    7pm - 8.30pm
    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 13th March
    7pm - 8.30pm
    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.

  • Friday 20th March
    7pm - 8.30pm
    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.
