The World Inside the World

Elizabeth Bram

“There is a world inside the world. It is possible to reverse the entire relationship between inner and outer to make the inner world come first—and then tend the inner garden for its own sake.”

Elizabeth Bram has painted all her life in her own unique, colorful stream-of-consciousness way. She toured her paintings in Europe, Canada and the US, translated all the titles into French for a show in Quebec, and had a solo museum exhibit in Arizona. Author of nine children’s books with a Master’s in Creative Arts Therapies, she enjoys teaching people how to talk to their artwork. Image: BIRTH, 2017.

Mormonism & Anthroposophy

Eugene Schwartz

For over two decades Eugene Schwartz has argued that Anthroposophy will not find its way in America until it has forged a relationship to Mormon beliefs and culture. The recent publication of Rudolf Steiner’s writings under a Mormon editor from Brigham Young University and the founding of the largest American public Waldorf school in Salt Lake City, Utah, indicate that the time has come for a meaningful encounter between Latter Day Saints and anthroposophists. In this lecture we will look at the “Golden Tablets” and the mythos and history underlying the Book of Mormon. We will explore Rudolf Steiner’s indications concerning the mission of North America and its Mystery Centers, and we will try to understand the polarity and interplay of genealogy and individuality in regard to the working of Gabriel and Michael. We hope that this lecture can bring some light to bear on the challenges faced by the American Spirit.

Eugene Schwartz: taught for many years at Green Meadow Waldorf School and directed the Teacher Training Program at the Sunbridge Institute. He lectures internationally on Anthroposophy and Waldorf education and has pioneered numerous online presentations, among them the Online Conferences for Waldorf teachers and the Online Rudolf Steiner Course. His hundreds of lectures and articles may be found at .

The Art & Practice of Sacred Conversation

Lynn Jericho

There is nothing like the spiritual dynamic that shows up in the presence of living questions, vulnerability, transparency, surprise and love. These can be the conversations I have with my grandchildren, my close friends, my amazing clients and students, even strangers. For 40 years, I’ve been studying the art and practice of Sacred Conversation. In this lecture and workshop, I share what I have learned. It will be a conversation about conversation and what makes a conversation sacred. — Friday Evening: What is a Sacred Conversation? Understanding the Basics. Two Preparations for the Conversation, The Gestures of Seeking and Holding, Creation of the Mood of the Moment and The Five Challenges and Comforts of Spiritual Intimacy. — Saturday Workshop: This will be a day of practicing sacred conversations and reflecting on... Awareness of the Presence and Engagement of Spiritual Beings... The Counter Forces: Recognizing & Vanquishing Disgust, Egotism, & Evil In Context and Content... A Closing Conversation. We will close with a conversation on the role sacred conversations in a world full of fear, anger, hatred and alternative facts.

Lynn Jericho: met Anthroposophy as a founding parent of the Waldorf School of Princeton. Anthroposophy became the ground of her being and inspiration for her work. Her yearly Inner Christmas messages are read by thousands around the world, and she has designed over 20 online courses on the many aspects of being human and becoming I. Learn more at .
