Evening talk

Energy Healing in the light of Anthroposophy

Anton Baraschi

Energetic healing methods have proliferated; over 350 methods are listed online and in insurance listings. Chinese Qigong, Reiki, Joh Rei, Charismatic churchesí Laying of the Hands, Nurses Therapeutic touch, plus methods such as Brennan, Pearl or Bruyere, are being taught. Do they work? How? For what? How is an anthroposophist supposed to think about them? How did Rudolf Steiner address this subject? Anton will explore the field of drugless interventions and explore the way Rudolf Steiner approached this subject in his lectures. Time permitting there will be a demonstration of pain reduction via medical qigong using volunteers from the audience and questions and answers.

Anton Baraschi: Bioenergy Healing practitioner, part of the integrative office of Dr Nidia Carrero in the flatiron district in Manhattan. An anthroposophist since 1972, he attends regularly Dr. Gerald Karnowís Anthroposophical Medicine study group in Chestnut Ridge.

IN RIVERSIDE PARK (see below)

St. Johnís Festival

Festival Committee

The Festival Group welcomes all to gather to create the mood of St. Johnís Day together. Before our St. John's Gathering, we invite all to join the Christian Community at 309 W. 74th St. for a 12pm lunch (donations welcome) and St. John's talk by Gisela Wielke from 12:45-2pm.

Then, we invite all to the ASNYC St. John's Day outdoor gathering, from 2:30-4pm, in the park just down the street from the Christian Community: Riverside Park just west of the Christian Community on 74th, right near the Eleanor Roosevelt Memorial. (Half a block west from C.C. and across the street.)

Our festival offering will include singing together a St. John's song, moving eurythmy to a selection from a Midsummer Night's Dream and the Calendar of the Soul, and a conversation on the St. John's mood and the festival year. We will also reflect over the whole first year of the new ASNYC Festival Group.

Feel free to bring picnic snacks and/or a blanket to share in social time in the park. (Some chairs will be available.) Our shared festival experiences are a gift we offer to all the beings of the cosmos!

Evening gathering, second in a series

Conversations on Race, Ethnicity, and Culture in Anthroposophy

Are we able to have a fruitful conversation around race, ethnicity, and culture? How might we create a space for us to come together to listen and speak about our own identities and lived experiences? How was race and culture expressed by Steiner and what insights as well as questions come with these anthroposophical ideas? This has been one of the most challenging and serious conversations in anthroposophy and a frequent place of criticism.

In exploring these topics together in an intimate environment, we hope to understand, engage, and wrestle with the complex questions around race and racism in anthroposophy. This is a three part series that will run June, July, and August. In the first meeting we shared the experiences we live with today concerning these questions and together will study a few samples of Steinerís work on race and culture. For the June meeting we read Mission of the Folk Souls, Lecture 4, and The Universal Human, Lecture 1, as preparation.
