Anthroposophical Society in America

The United States of America received a great gift from Rudolf Steiner in 1923: the “America Verse”, to be used as both a meditation and prayer. Please use this verse today to bring strength as we move through the threshold of this momentous election. To learn more about this verse, click the link below to read a letter from Virginia Sease, addressed to the Anthroposophical Society in America this past February.

ST. JOHN’S TIDE - LIGHTING VERSE

We here encircle these trees of Christ’s birth
upon which these candles once stood
illuminating the dark and cold of winter’s deepest night.
Now, at St. John’s Tide,
the Sun’s warming of the earth has reached its zenith
and we again light these selfless trees
in fulfillment of their fiery destiny.
The light of these torches,
like the warmth within our souls unites together,
enkindling the indwelling spirit flames
within the hearts of humanity
and creates a flaming spire of love
returning gloriously into the infinite heavens above.
John Silverio

Still time to join us this afternoon!

March 3 - Anthroposophic Medicine - Dan Einstein, MD

The Fifth in the Series of Living in Harmony with the Life Forces of Earth
– an exploration of some of the works arising from the insights of Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual science

2:30 - 4:30 pm at Ashwood Waldorf School, Lower Grade School Building
Dr. Einstein is an integrative family medicine doctor practicing in Freeport and Rockport, Maine. Dr. Einstein began his journey in medicine in 2000 by volunteering at free clinics in the San Francisco area. Finding that he loved both conventional and holistic medicine, he trained as an herbalist at the Blue Otter School and then went on to medical school at Case Western in Cleveland, Ohio. He met his wife there, and both of them came back to New England for residency training at Maine-Dartmouth in Augusta. He is now board certified in Family Medicine, Integrative Medicine, and Anthroposophic medicine. He lives with his wife, daughter and several animals in Freeport.
Website: holistic-einstein.com

In the modern world we are bombarded with advice on lifestyle changes that can improve our health. Much of this advice conflicts with the increasing demands of work and constant connectivity. In an effort to resolve this tension, Dr Einstein will review the fourfold human (physical, etheric, astral and I) and lead a discussion of health-giving practices to support each one. Many of these practices will be familiar to participants but understanding their interaction with the fourfold can deepen their significance. Additionally, this understanding allows the practices to be modified to suit the realities of each person’s life. After the large group discussion, we will break into small groups to discuss how our own health practices might improve from this knowledge. In preparation for this class, please feel free to write down your own health practices and what they mean to you.

Artistic Exercises as part of the class
Sarah Williams Smith will lead us in the Moral Color Exercises, a series of six paintings based on a 1915 lecture by Rudolf Steiner. These color exercises work as a cleansing, reorientation of the soul, helping us reharmonize ourselves when faced with the modern forces of materialism, overscheduling and disconnection from the spiritual world.

A Foundation Course for all Waldorf educators, and a foundation for life!

Offered by Studies in Anthroposophy, http://anthroposophystudies.tumblr.com/

Dates: Six Thursdays, September 27 - November 1
Time: 6:30-8:30 PM
Location: Ashwood Waldorf School, Michaelmas Library
180 Park Street, Rockport, Maine 04856
Tuition - $120

Now Enrolling!
A Course in Theosophy led by Bill Laurita

How do we learn to focus on what is lasting and not get lost in the transitory?

What is the difference between soul and spirit?

How can Theosophy help us better understand current affairs?

How can I apply this book to my life?

Tuition - $120

The whole world is in this book. In Theosophy, Rudolf Steiner lays out how our inner world and the outer world are constituted. We will start by reading the first half of the last chapter. Here Steiner lays out an approach to how to come into a relationship with Anthroposophy: “…not to believe or disbelieve….but only to be unbiased and receptive…”.

The class will be about reading Steiner’s words, with
presentations toward explication of the text and discussion. The goal is to explore, clarify and to relate the content of Theosophy to life’s journey.

Students should be prepared to read assignments and come with observations, questions and a willingness to engage in class discussions. Together we will create a supportive classroom environment where all will be encouraged to express themselves. We will read the translation by Catherine Creeger.

Bill Laurita has been a student of Anthoposophy for the past 30 years. He has engaged in workshops and study groups throughout that time and has taught for the Center for Anthroposophy. Bill was a Waldorf teacher and administrator prior to his current position as president of the Swans Island Company. He holds a BA from UVM and a Masters from UNH.
