How the Ass became Golden – Mysteries Ancient and Modern

Friday 25 October 7pm - 8.30pm
With Andrew Welburn

Transformation is unsettling, not always dignified, means taking risks and sometimes backfires. But without it we are going nowhere, and the Mysteries are always a journey. An ancient initiate called his parable of life The Golden Ass, with the message that just when things seem at their worst the answer can first clearly be seen. Our own time is darker than most, but for us too the gold may be there waiting to be found. Andrew Welburn has been an academic in the fields of English Literature and biblical interpretation and history. A lifelong anthroposophist, he has written several books on Steiner’s philosophy, esotericism and Christianity, and on the prophet Zarathustra.
