EXPERIENCE AND EXPLORE EURYTHMY with ANDREW N. DZEDULIONIS
September 25, October 16 & 23, and December 4
2:30 - 4:30 PM
Suggested contribution: $10 - $25
Eurythmy is a new artistic form of movement brought into the world by Rudolf Steiner. Through the movements we come to understand balance and nourishment in the body, soul and spirit. As an art leading into the future, eurythmy brings inner balance and harmony, while making visible both music and the spoken word. The theme for eurythmic exploration in the coming sessions will be the inspiring mantric verses by Rudolf Steiner from his Calendar of the Soul. Live music will complement the mood of the verses and help us feel how the rhythms resonate in us.
Please wear comfortable clothing. If you have soft ballet type shoes, please bring them. All are welcome!

LIFE AFTER DEATH. LIFE BEFORE BIRTH
with PHILIP MEES
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 20, 7:00 - 10:00 PM
Rudolf Steiner made many references to life after death and before birth in his lectures. He often described just one aspect from a particular angle. It is therefore difficult to form an overall picture of the whole. In his books, What Happens After We Die? and What Happens Before We are Born? , Dutch Christian Community priest Arie Boogert endeavored to do just that. He collected Steiner's references and put them together into a thorough, coordinated description of this all-important journey we all make. PHILIP MEES translated these books into English which led him to his own study of many of Steiner's descriptions.
