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
