    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

  • 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.
