The Rosicrucian Path of Transformation
Friday 4 October 7pm - 8.30pm
The Rosicrucian path is one of inner transformation of the soul, outlined in the allegorical story told in one of the most important writings of esoteric Christianity: The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz. This work, first published anonymously in German in 1616, draws on concepts from Christianity and alchemy. By following the path of one who follows a call, meets many challenges and finally arrives at the Wedding, we are offered the opportunity of undergoing personal transformation by meditating on the significance of the events that are portrayed. Bastiaan Baan’s interpretation of this work combined with the insights Rudolf Steiner brings makes it very accessible and relevant to our lives today. Bastiaan Baan worked as a teacher in the Netherlands before being ordained in 1981. He was a Christian Community priest in the Netherlands and director of the priests’ seminary in Spring Valley, NY. He lectures widely and is an accomplished author and published a commentary on the Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz in 2016.
