Theme of the Year
“The I knows itself in the Light of Michaelic World Affirmation and World Connection”
The new international theme for the year is available online with multiple articles by the Goetheanum Leadership and others.
“The arc from Society to individual was continued in [this past year's] theme... In addition to 'world-affirmation' we would like to add 'world-connection.' By expanding the theme, the fundamental anthroposophical self-knowledge and self-development evolve to an active engagement in the world.”Continue reading...

DOUG SAFRANEK & LYNN LOFLIN
Doug Safranek received an MFA from the University of Wisconsin where he studied with Robert Grilley, magic realist John Wilde, and art historian James Watrous who introduced him to egg tempera painting. Safranek currently teaches egg tempera technique at the Art Students League in New York.
His work is included in a number of public and private collections, including The Norton Museum of Art, The New York Historical Society, The Museum of the City of New York, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Awards include an Elizabeth Greenshields Grant and a Gold Medal from the Allied Artists of America. He is represented by the ACA Galleries in Chelsea.
Lynn Loflin is the Executive Chef of Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, overseeing meals to two NYC senior
Centers, a Head Start Program, and Women’s Shelter at the Park Avenue Armory. She currently owns and operates Newton Farm in the Catskills, which provides organic produce to New York restaurants and has a small Community Supported Agriculture program. Lynn also teaches culinary arts at Columbia Institute for Human Nutrition in the Medical Nutrition Graduate Program for health care professionals. Lynn spends most of her free time sewing and farming. She writes, “I have always been a seamstress and maker of things. Color, language, and the idea of collective memory have been a lifelong obsession. The soothing, meditative repetition of needle and thread handwork and the moment to moment bringing forth of line, color, and text are for me the perfect act of creation.”
