From the Great Lakes
Eugene continues his look at anthroposophy and Mormonism. We will trace the circumstances that led Joseph Smith and his followers to migrate from New York to the Great Lakes area and Brigham Young to move further west still to Utah. We will explore the “spiritual geography” of North America portrayed by Steiner and the biblical-era Israelite migrations described by Joseph Smith. And we will ask why the LDS Church has grown to be the largest and most influential religion originating on American soil, while anthroposophy has made few inroads into American culture.
Eugene Schwartz: taught for many years at Green Meadow Waldorf School and directed the Teacher Training Program at Sunbridge Institute. He lectures internationally on anthroposophy and Waldorf education and has pioneered online presentations including the Online Conferences for Waldorf teachers.

Be Free & Shine
Enjoy the brightness of high spring with the breathing variations of the consonant H, as it sounds in “happy” and in “human”, the gift from the constellation of yellow Twins. Now is the time to let go, be free, and shine. We’ll practice gentle exercises to enlivening piano music and beautiful poetry, learn to move the eurythmy gestures for the sounds H (“happy”, “human”) and I (“ee”), and the music interval of the 7th, and connect with each other and find inner peace with eurythmy exercises given by Rudolf Steiner. Invite a friend or a family member to come with you. We’ll practice gentle harmonious movement exercises to live piano music and beautiful poetry. Share your vibrant light in a circle of like-minded souls. Open to all who can walk. No prior movement experience is needed. Future dates: June 25, July 23, August 20.

Heartfelt Thinking, part 2
We think with our heads, we feel with our hearts, and we act with our bodies. What do we know about human heart? According to many esoteric teachings, the human heart is the organ of subtle perception. Is it possible to think with the heart? No. But it is possible to fructify and enliven our thoughts with the warmth of the heart. Thoughts infused with life become living thoughts. Mechanical thinking is a self-destructive force. Living thinking is a creative and sustaining force. What do we choose?

The 33-Year Rhythm & the Stars in Biography
All things in historic evolution arise transfigured after thirty-three years, as from a grave, by virtue of a power connected with the holiest of all redemptions: the Mystery of Golgotha. —Rudolf Steiner
An expression of this manifestation of the Christ-Impulse can be found as a new rhythm of time in human history and biography. This is the 33-years’ rhythm. —Willi Sucher
The transition to a new star wisdom, or astrosophy, demands that we begin to move from a space bound thinking into a living experience of time. This begins with understanding cycles and rhythms in relation to the stars. On this 33rd anniversary of the death of Willi Sucher (pictured right) on May 21st, we will explore through presentation and conversation, some of the star rhythms in human biography with a special focus on the 33-year rhythm as a new rhythm in humanity.
Jonathan Hilton: had ongoing study with Willi Sucher from 1977 until his death in 1985. Jonathan has taught courses, lectured, and written on astrosophy widely. He is a trustee of the Astrosophy Research Center.
