Verse for America

May our feeling penetrate

into the center of our heart,

and seek, in love, to unite itself

with the human beings seeking the same goal,

with the spirit beings who — bearing grace,

strengthening us from realms of light

and illuminating our love —

are gazing down upon

our earnest, heartfelt striving.

~ Rudolf Steiner, 1923

“We must eradicate from the soul all fear and terror of what comes towards us out of the future. We must acquire serenity in all feelings and sensibilities concerning the future. We must look forward with absolute equanimity to all that may come, and we must think only that whatever comes is given to us by a world direction full of wisdom.

It is part of what we must learn in this age, namely, to live out of pure trust, without any security in existence; trust in the ever-present help of the spiritual world. Truly nothing else will do if our courage is not to fail us. Let us discipline our will, and let us seek the awakening from within ourselves. .”

~ Rudolf Steiner

Webinar: “Phases Of Life: The Human Being Between Earth and Cosmos”

The Anthroposophical Society in America is offering another of their wonderful webinar series. It begins next Wednesday, May 1. We thought you would like to know more about it.

“Phases Of Life: The Human Being Between Earth and Cosmos”

A biography and social art webinar with Patti Smith and Chris Burke.  

“The human life unfolds gradually over time, moving through a series of phases. While all of us carry these archetypes within us, we each experience and express them in unique ways. Learning to let your life speak through the phases is an intimate, revealing, and expansive experience, and it can awaken newfound interest in the stories of others. This webinar series will provide an overview of these phases, sometimes known as seven-year cycles. Chris and Patti will share practices to research your life story and offer time for questions.”  

When: Wednesdays, May 1, 15, 29 from 7:30-8:30 pm Eastern. Can’t attend live? All registered participants will receive an emailed recording of each webinar within 24 hours of the live session.

Where: Online with Zoom Webinars! Click here to register!

Cost: $40 Suggested Contribution

On May 1 we will focus on the years of childhood from birth to 21. We will describe the attributes of these phases, including their relationships to nature and the planets, and offer some exercises to deepen your capacity to hear your life speak to you through them.

On May 15 will focus on the early to middle adulthood years from 21-42. We will describe the qualities of this period, explore how it is related to the development that occurs in the first 21 years, and introduce exercises for working with this time in your biography.

On May 29 we will look at the adult and elder years from 42 onward. We will introduce the idea of mirroring and discuss how echoes of earlier phases can appear later in life. Once again, we will share exercises for working with these phases.

Looking forward to seeing you online!
