Introducing Anthroposophy

 

 

What is the Human Being?  Who are we?

 

Rudolf Steiner’s insights create a multi-layered picture that open our minds and hearts to a richer understanding of these questions.

 

A two-fold approach explores the physical and the spiritual natures of the human being, sleeping and waking, breathing in and breathing out, sympathy and antipathy.

Expanding into a three-fold approach we explore the middle way between polarities: body, soul and spirit; thinking, feeling and willing; head, heart and hands.

In the four-fold human being we come to the physical, etheric, astral and ego bodies and see how these are expressed in the mineral, plant, animal and human kingdoms, the four elements and the four temperaments.

 

This is a wonderful opportunity to experience an artistic introduction to Anthroposophy including painting, sculpture, music and eurythmy. 

 

Tutors: Paul Lawrence, Nicole Lawrence and Kristina Hamilton

            A Journey of Becoming

 

Understanding human physiology as an inner pathway to Waldorf Pedagogy

                  

 

Module One

 

This week aims for each individual to find her/his own relationship to Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual science in relation to understanding human physiology as an inner pathway to Waldorf Pedagogy and to foster and awaken ongoing personal and professional development and growth.

 

The course is for current and new teachers wishing to deepen their pedagogic approach.

 

It offers lectures, explorations through study, conversations, and practical and artistic activities working on reflective practice as a basis for our own research. 

 

‘Spiritual Science shows us that the Human Self is far wider than what is enclosed in the personality. Indeed the entire Spiritual Scientific mode of observation is based on the fact that the human being can reach beyond the self, beyond what is enclosed within the boundaries of the personality, without ever losing himself.’ RS 14/03/1912

Module Two

Our ongoing journey is an exploration of the true nature of the human being.
How do I understand the children in front of me
How do I learn to 'see' them and understand their journey and needs.
How can I be constant in my striving, and keep asking questions.

In this Module we will again turn to Nature study, Eurythmy and a lecture text study of 'the study of Man'. In the afternoons we have space for presentations of home/group study of lecture 2, of our journey so far and anything else we together decide.

In the lectures will address human physiology, child development of first Seven years, how the human organs become our teachers in understanding our emotional, social, spiritual journey...young and old.

Our inner development continues to be a red thread through all as a basis for building community between teachers, parents and schools learning to work together.

 

Module Two is open to all those who have attended Module One.

Module 3

Details will be available soon.
