  • Tuesday 23 January 9am - Saturday 1 June 7pm

    Bringing together the worlds of painting and poetry, image and text, this stunning exhibition is a harvest of the collaborations between Sir Ben Okri and Rosemary Clunie. Preoccupied by the shadows and beauty of the world, the climate change crisis, social injustices, creativity and playfulness, the marvel that is colour, the enigma that is form -these painting come from two artists steeped in the spiritual and artistic traditions.

    Free to visit

  • Friday 3 May 7.30pm - Saturday 15 June 7.30pm

    Alexander ‘Sandy’ Marshall, Bird & Carrot, David Luff and Wild Yak present ‘There’s no money in honesty!’

    A comedy about hypocrites, hysterics and hustlers.

    An over-privileged, vainglorious liar is mistaken for a high-ranking government inspector by the corrupt local officials of a parochial town. Desperate to cover up their crimes and escape censure, the town’s Governor and his cronies pull out all the stops to try and bribe this dishonest buffoon with money, wine and women.

    The Government Inspector is Nikolai Gogol’s masterful comedy about how corrupt power destroys itself, exposing the tragi-comic consequences of collective delusion and the swindlers who would exploit it.

    Evening performances at 7.30pm Monday to Saturdays

    with Helen Kinsey

    What’s it like to have Autism? How can we best relate to those living with this challenge? Autism spectrum disorder ranges from a very severe disability, clearly present in early childhood, to mild difficulty with social interactions that can often go unnoticed until adult hood. Helen will share her experience of working with children who have Autism and offer us some recent research into its possible causes and how it can best be approached.    

    Helen is an anthroposophist. She was a Waldorf class teacher for a number of years. She is currently teaching in mainstream and has spent some time in a specialist autistic setting.

  • Saturday 25 May
    7pm - 9pm

    The year we are living in now marks the 100th anniversary of an astonishingly productive and fruitful year in the life of Rudolf Steiner. It began with the Christmas Conference, during which the Anthroposophical Society was reborn and the Foundation Stone Meditation given. There followed a whole array of new initiatives, including the beginning of the School for Spiritual Science and initiatives in the realm of the arts, medicine and agriculture. That year witnessed Rudolf Steiner’s vital contribution to the bringing of a new understanding of karma to humanity with his Karmic Relationships lectures, as well as the serialised Leading Thoughts, which summarise Anthroposophy in a series of aphoristic guidelines for meditation, supplemented by essays on the Michaelic nature of Anthroposophy.

    Peter Selg was born in Stuttgart and studied medicine in Witten-Herdecke, Zurich, and Berlin. Until 2000, he worked as the head physician of the juvenile psychiatry department of Herdecke hospital in Germany. He is currently part of the leadership group at the world headquarters of the Anthroposophical Society at the Geotheanum in Switzerland, co-leader of the General Anthroposophical Section and director of the Ita Wegman Institute. He lectures extensively and is the author of numerous books. His comprehensive biography of Rudolf Steiner is published in 7 volumes. Volume 7 covers 1924 – 1925 and includes a lecture by Rudolf Steiner on June 4, 1924, ‘The Festival of Pentecost’.

    All welcome, no booking required, donation towards expenses at the door gratefully received.

  • Monday 27 May
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Dr Sue Peat and Adrian Hotten

    Rudolf Steiner’s collection of fifty-two meditative verses were first published in German in 1912. These verses, representing the fifty-two weeks of the year, begin with Easter week and offer thoughts that help us find a deeper relationship with the spiritual forces at work throughout the year.

    ‘You should take these meditations quite particularly into your hearts, for they contain what can make the soul alive and what really corresponds to a living relationship of the soul forces to the forces of the macrocosm.’ - Rudolf Steiner, CW 40, 1912

    Each verse appears alongside the corresponding opposite verse for the week, that represents a kind of mirror, or compensating force during the year. In listening to the changing language of the year we can rediscover our individual nature. These verses help to awaken a feeling of unity with nature while simultaneously stimulating a discovery of the self. We will mainly be using the Ruth & Hans Pusch translation of the verses and The Year Participated, an interpretation and translation by Owen Barfield. Both are readily available to purchase or can be found on the internet. Members of the Meetup group already receive the verses week by week by email. Come and join us as we continue to work our way through the changing nature of the year.

  • Friday 31 May
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Dr. Peter Gruenewald

    Suffering from a chronic physical or mental illness can be an existential challenge that may seemingly limit our self-expression and even social reach. It can be caused by experiences and deeds in previous lives but may also be a preparation to acquire new life skills for a future lifetime. In fact, organs that are weak in one incarnation, may become organs of strength in a next life. All illness, even physical illnesses have to be understood from their spiritual, soul, vital and physical and social aspect. Once we understand these dimensions of illness and its individual purpose, we can start to work on improving the conditions by means that strengthen our physical, vital, emotional and spiritual constitution. 

    We will in this context look at two statements: ‘All illnesses are musical problems.’ (Novalis) and Paracelsus: ‘The foundation of all medicine is love.’ We will explore the question: How can we use spiritual development and initiation to work towards a true and sustainable state of health, physically, vitally, emotionally and spiritually?

     Dr Peter Gruenewald is an anthroposophical doctor, general practitioner, specialist doctor in sleep medicine and a trainer in Adaptive Resilience and stress management. He is the author of the books: Rosicrucian Alchemy. A Spiritual Christian Path (2024). Mastering Life. Rosicrucian and Magical Techniques for achieving your Life’s Goals (2022). Manifesting your Best Future Self: Building Adaptive Resilience (2020). The Quiet Heart. Putting Stress in its Place (2007).

    These profoundly esoteric lectures examine the laws inherent in reincarnation and karma and explore in detail the incarnations of specific historical figures. The opportunity to study this lecture series in a group affords us a chance to really get to grips with these fundamental issues, which demonstrate the realities of the workings of karma in human life.

  • Thursday 6 June
    6.30pm - 8pm

    with Marjatta van Boeschoten

    Developing inner resources for living a more conscious and creative life

    Each of us has the capacity to reach a calm inner space, from where we can draw on our deepest resources to build strong foundations for life. Meditation helps us strengthen the quality of our attention, be more awake and present in the moment and open to fresh possibilities and horizons for the future. From this vantage point we can take up the multiple challenges of life with greater equanimity, resilience, insight and enthusiasm.

    In these three workshops, Marjatta van Boeschoten will draw on indications and exercises given by Rudolf Steiner for developing a western, contemporary meditative practice. Each session will contain content, exercises and conversation and is suitable for both newcomers and those already experienced in meditative practice.

    Marjatta practised as a lawyer, then founded a management consultancy specialising in human development at work. She is the General Secretary of the Anthroposophical Society.

    £10 (£8 conc.) per session
    £25 (£ 20 conc.) for all 3 sessions

  • Friday 7 June
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Dr Andrew Welburn

    Reincarnation points to all the things we have been and still may be.  It is often contrasted with Christianity's focus on one's present self and hope for salvation.  But reincarnation is not just an oriental idea. In fact, it has formed part of Jewish as well as several major Christian perspectives. Rudolf Steiner is neither just East or West but shows how we can find a universal understanding of karma, transforming how we think of our lives and our responsibility for the world.

    Andrew has been an academic in the fields of English Literature and biblical interpretation and history. A life-long Anthroposophist, he has written several books on Rudolf Steiner’s philosophy, esotericism, and Christianity, and on the prophet Zarathustra.

    With Marjatta van Boeschoten, General Secretary and Coralee Frederickson (eurythmist)

    The ‘Rhythms’ of the Foundation Stone Mediation, given over seven days during the Christmas Conference, consist of seven short and concise meditations which encompass the quintessence of the esoteric impulse of the Christmas Conference. Each rhythm expresses an aspect of the meditation in precise constellations, supported by the corresponding mood of the day of the week to which they relate. The Rhythms will be presented in the context of the overall proceedings at the Christmas Conference, and each of the seven Rhythms will be described. There will be guided eurythmy exercises that enhance the inner experience of the rhythms. We will also address how to work with the challenges of meditation.

    The cost of the day is £15.

    A sequence of one-day workshops running from September 2023 – June 2024

    with Sarah Kane

    The one-day workshops planned for weekends at Rudolf Steiner House in 2023 and 2024 aim to provide an overview over the core elements of Michael Chekhov’s acting technique that he continued to develop throughout his life.  They range from the very beginnings of any serious artistic research and exploration to the finer points of developing a stage life and creating character, including the character’s psychological gesture.

    The workshops aim to introduce participants to or deepen their understanding of the strongly creative and highly artistic techniques developed by the Russian actor in the middle of the twentieth century. They also aim to inspire and empower actors for their future work.

    The Imaginary Centre
    Saturday 22 June, 10am - 5pm

    As a further tool in Chekhov’s approach to developing character, and a follow-on from the Ideal Centre, discovering the Imaginary Centre with the help again of the actor’s imagination, can be enormously enriching and transformative. It will involve exploring colour, forms and textures, its home in the body, as well as real and imaginary objects, all inspired by the character and inviting the actor to transform everything relating to his or her outer appearance.

    As usual, please bring clothing and footwear suitable for movement, as well as a short text that a character might speak. it will be helpful to know this text by heart.

    A new sequence of Chekhov workshops will be starting in the autumn of 2024.

    Workshop Fee: £55 per individual day; £150.00 for three workshops.

    Please book in advance: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/rudolf-steiner-house/e-plaorq or in person on the day in the Bookshop.

    Biodynamics is an organic method of cultivation arising out of Rudolf Steiner’s Spiritual research. It works with the rhythms of the movements of the Sun, Moon, planets and stars, to which the plants respond. The workshop will cover the background to the biodynamic planting calendar and using the biodynamic preparations. It’s summer and so we will focus on sharing tips for caring for flowers and food plants – from flowers and windowsill herbs to fruit trees. For the last hour, we’ll stir the horn manure preparation (known as 500), so bring an empty screw top bottle if you would like to take some home. A 500ml bottle is enough for an average garden. The workshop is suitable for those new to biodynamics and for anyone who would like to give their garden, window boxes or house plants a summer treat!

    Sue and Douglas are enthusiastic gardeners with lots of practical experience of biodynamic gardening.

    All welcome, no need to book.

    with Dr. Sue Peat and Adrian Hotten

    Rudolf Steiner’s collection of fifty-two meditative verses were first published in German in 1912. These verses, representing the fifty-two weeks of the year, begin with Easter week and offer thoughts that help us find a deeper relationship with the spiritual forces at work throughout the year.

    'You should take these meditations quite especially into your hearts, for they contain what can enliven the soul and really represents a living relationship of soul forces with forces of the macrocosm.’--
    Rudolf Steiner, CW 40, 1912

    Each verse appears alongside the corresponding opposite verse for the week, that represents a kind of mirror, or compensating force during the year. In listening to the changing language of the year we can rediscover our individual nature. These verses help to awaken a feeling of unity with nature while simultaneously stimulating a discovery of the self. We will mainly be using the Ruth & Hans Pusch translation of the verses and The Year Participated, an interpretation and translation by Owen Barfield. Both are readily available to purchase or can be found on the internet. Members of the Meetup group already receive the verses week by week by email.

    Come and join us as we work our way through the changing nature of the year.

    Lecture by Frank Burdich

    Reading about elemental beings or nature spirits can leave an abstract impression of something not quite real. Frank has been actively collaborating with the elemental world for more than ten years and so can speak from a wealth of experience about their nature, purpose, and structure, as well as their desire to work with humans. He will also present different methods for perceiving them.

    Frank Burdich was for 14 years an Upper School science teacher at a Waldorf School in Germany during which time he pursued an Anthroposophical spiritual path and became clairvoyant. He has been lecturing on supersensible perception since 2007, and in 2012 founded his own supersensible research company Gesellschaft für angewandte Geistesforschung mbH which provides supersensible research services in a range of contexts such as medicine preparation, mistletoe based remedies, oncology, special needs conditions and the spiritual audit of buildings, as well as lecturing and giving workshops on a variety of spiritual topics.

    http://www.spiritual-research.eu/en/

    £10 cash on the door.

    For further information please contact Alex Wright on 01342 827967

    Frank will be giving two further lectures as well as a 1½ day workshop at Emerson College in the days following this lecture. Please see https://calendar.emerson.org.uk/events/frank-burdich-workshop/ for full details.

    Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (born 29th September 1571; died July 1610 aged 38 years)

    with Peter Van Breda

    The talk will be focused on an individuality who clearly ushers in a new form of art consciousness, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. His colourful but also controversial life unfolded at the end of the 16th and the beginning of the 17th centuries. He was plagued by extreme behavioural episodes, his daily life was often so overshadowed by dark deeds that he found himself a fugitive on the run for most of his life. He carried though within himself the remarkable ability to paint living scenarios, mostly biblical themes, in an outstanding manner, both beautiful but often shocking. The events he paints arise out of wells of darkness but are then highlighted by shafts of light; they take place in front of you as if happening on the sidewalks of our everyday life.

    In 1969 Peter had the blessing of being introduced to an anthroposophist who became a lifelong friend, Dr Jan C Louw. One afternoonarly in their friendship he enquired whether Peter had ever heard of Rudolf Steiner. After an hourlong conversation, Peter knew for certain that Rudolf Steiner and the unfolding gift of Anthroposophy would become the forefront impulse of his life. Soon he was on his way to Emerson College where he felt how a transformative seed of becoming had entered into his destiny. One gift was the two-week-long initial course given by William Mann, a devoted art historian. As the course unfolded Peter began to recognise that art through the ages was, amongst many other things, a direct indication of the phases of consciousness through which we have evolved. History of Art has remained an nnovative companion for him for over 50 years.

    The Character’s Psychological Gesture
    Saturday 29 June, 10am - 5pm

    What is often considered to be the crown of Chekhov’s approach to acting, the psychological gesture is a further development of what he calls the archetypal gestures: whatever gesture expresses the character’s overall intention becomes entirely individual to the character being performed when complemented by specific qualities. The workshop will explore qualities as well as search for the gesture that expresses the character’s intention in the text.

    As usual, please bring clothing and footwear suitable for movement, as well as a short text that a character might speak. it will be helpful to know this text by heart in order to find the character’s psychological gesture.

    A new sequence of Chekhov workshops will be starting in the autumn of 2024.

  • Wednesday 3 July
    4.15pm - 5.45pm

    with Dagmar Steffelbauer

    Occult Science was first written by Steiner in 1909 and after that, three revised editions (1913, 1920 & 1925) followed. Studying the book, a first glance into supersensible worlds is given. ‘One of the fairest fruits of the pursuit of Spiritual Science is that it lends strength and firmness to life. Inexhaustible is the fountainhead from which it draws, giving human being strength for work and confidence in life’ - Rudolf Steiner.

    All are welcome!

  • Monday 8 July
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Dr Sue Peat and Adrian Hotten

    Rudolf Steiner’s collection of fifty-two meditative verses were first published in German in 1912. These verses, representing the fifty-two weeks of the year, begin with Easter week and offer thoughts that help us find a deeper relationship with the spiritual forces at work throughout the year.

    ‘You should take these meditations quite particularly into your hearts, for they contain what can make the soul alive and what really corresponds to a living relationship of the soul forces to the forces of the macrocosm.’ - Rudolf Steiner, CW 40, 1912

    Each verse appears alongside the corresponding opposite verse for the week, that represents a kind of mirror, or compensating force during the year. In listening to the changing language of the year we can rediscover our individual nature. These verses help to awaken a feeling of unity with nature while simultaneously stimulating a discovery of the self. We will mainly be using the Ruth & Hans Pusch translation of the verses and The Year Participated, an interpretation and translation by Owen Barfield. Both are readily available to purchase or can be found on the internet. Members of the Meetup group already receive the verses week by week by email. Come and join us as we continue to work our way through the changing nature of the year.

    Our reading groups provide the opportunity in a very informal setting to explore Rudolf Steiner’s work with others. There is no need for any prior participation or knowledge, and everyone, young and old, is very welcome to join us at any time, just once or as often as it suits. We aim to create a friendly, inviting atmosphere, as good humoured as it is serious. Working together, we share our reflections on the immediate theme and try to pay as much attention to listening as to speaking. We find that studying together provides a wonderful opportunity for the whole group to advance in knowledge and understanding. Members and friends are warmly invited to groups at any time even for one-off visits. Previous participation is not necessary and there is no need to book.

    with Lee Scopes

    In these 11 Lectures (GA197) Rudolf Steiner unfolds the spiritual background to many social questions around the theme of the polarities of West and East, Materialism and Mysticism, Knowledge and Belief. He makes visible the forces of decline active in modern civilisation, and how these forces are trying to wrest human destiny from the active participation of human beings. He presents with profound poignancy how the Christ is pouring a new spirit into human evolution.

    All are welcome!

    7pm - 8.30pm

    with Geoff Norris

    In the autumn of 1924 Rudolf Steiner gave a course on Speech and Drama that was intended for professional actors. Rudolf Steiner places an important statement in the introduction to this course ‘What is important above all else is a thorough knowledge of the organism of speech, of the living structure of speech as such. This organism of speech has been produced, has come forth, out of man himself in the course of his evolution.’ Geoff will offer us an overview of the course and insights into how we can all put these into practice when we speak and listen – particularly when participating in the high social art of human conversation.

    Geoff is a master teacher of Steiner Creative Speech with over 45 years of experience in the field. He is an experienced storyteller, actor and director and has performed and given workshops world-wide. He is currently training students to achieve a Goetheanum recognized siploma in Steiner Speech and has been speaking and codirecting for Eurythmy West Midlands young stage group.

    with Alan Stott

    In Anthroposophy we have a path of knowledge, which can guide the spiritual in the human being to the spiritual in the universe. Musicians are inclined to take this, the first of a series of ‘Leading Thoughts’ offered by Rudolf Steiner, quite literally. He suggested that spiritual science has to be read ‘as a pianist reads a musical score’. At the piano, Alan will gently lead us through an exploration of a short and simple piece
    by Bach and a short piece that Chopin was inspired to write. Likewise, we shall look at a passage or two of Steiner’s prose. He’ll introduce us to six clues to help us discover an untold secret, hidden within his written prose style. We may expect simple yet astonishing discoveries!

    No specialist knowledge is required or expected and handouts to take home will be provided.

    Alan is a musician, translator, author, and original researcher who’s worked for nearly 50 years with eurythmy, playing for hundreds of children and adults. He has published extensively on music, theology and astrology, and collaborated with colleagues to produce the ‘Collected works of Reverend Professor Hermann Beckh’, a universal scholar and perhaps Rudolf Steiner’s most brilliant pupil (please see Temple Lodge Publishing).

  • Thursday 25 July 9.30am - Saturday 27 July 6pm
    Summer School at Rudolf Steiner House London

    Facilitated by Michael U. Baumgartner

    To understand the necessities for peace, we have to re-think how we live together, relate to each other and the space we live in.

    In this Summer School we will explore three impulses towards peace over three days. Each day will be self-standing and can be attended individually.  However, the three days are also conceived as a journey for those who are able to make it.  

    Day 1, Thursday 25 July: Re-Thinking The Nation State

    Nation states are neither natural nor have they been the only way we have been living together. As a matter of fact, they are too costly, exclusionary and a main force for war. Nation states express government imposed from above. We re-think communal living as governance bottom-up, by using the concept of global modules (neighbourhoods, boroughs, towns, large cities / regions and territories) to understand how community is organised at different levels and sizes. We create a picture of an earth without nations states.

    Day 2, Friday 26 July: Re-Thinking Social Structure

    How should social space be structured to lay grounds to foster human development and more peace in the world? We re-think the purpose of community. To do so, we can look at what ideals best express individual human development and living together. Interdependent subsystems define social space just as suborganisations co-sustain human organism.

    Day 3, Saturday 27 July: Re-Thinking Governance

    Understanding democracy and expanding our concept of ‘rights only’ to embrace the notion of responsibilities - both as human beings and as members of any community (as still done in indigenous communities and the ‘global south’) and moving from the concept of law to that of agreement, helps re-size governance.

    Download the full programme here

    The Method:

    We will use non-formal educational methods, which are experiential and participatory, involving an exploration of our themes through presentations, group exercises and conversation. 

    All are welcome to become development practitioners, hands-on architects of the future.

    Fee: Daily rate: £50.  All three days: £120

    Lecture by Thomas Mayer­

    We all live together with the deceased. The souls who are in spiritual regions support us from within with strength, love, trust and inspiration. The more we open ourselves to them and reciprocate their friendship, the better they can do this. Thomas Mayer has been in conscious contact with many deceased people for over 20 years and will talk about this in his lecture.

    He will also describe how the normal after-death path leads to the next incarnation. Nowadays however, many souls can no longer find their way into the light, spiritual world, and end up in dead ends, in entangled unhealthy states. In their distress, they then occupy other people, siphon off energy, and cause spiritual, mental and physical difficulties and social strife. Thomas Mayer has been helping such deceased people to overcome their obstacles for many years and has observed that energy blockages in places and houses, or depression, panic, fears or deep grief in a possessed person, have been released as a result. Such connections have so far been underestimated in the public consciousness. Conversely, the incidence of mental illness is increasing rapidly. The good news is that we are not at the mercy of this. It is possible to help affected people and the deceased.

    Thomas Mayer is a Meditation teacher, civil rights activist, and author of ‘Answering the Call of the Elementals’ published by Findhorn Press, ‘Overcoming Fear - Exercises for Spiritual Self-Defense’ and ‘Covid Vaccines from a Spiritual Perspective’.

    £15 cash on the door.

    For further information please call Alex Wright on 01342 827967

    Thomas will be leading a workshop on Anthroposophical Meditation, as well as outdoor exercises to contact elementals and exercises to connect to the deceased, at Emerson College from 7pm Friday 20th September to 12.30pm Sunday 22nd September.

  • Friday 11 October 5pm - Sunday 13 October 1pm

    How can we work creatively in our increasingly dehumanising culture?  The  growing prevalence of AI and Transhumanism is socially corrosive.  Can we hone the necessary discernment to engage healthily with the possibilities of our modern technology without becoming enthralled by its debilitating effects?  This weekend seminar will identify the threats to our still unfinished human evolution, and also explore the inner practicesthrough which we can develop spiritual resilience, and cultivate our true human potential.    

    Our speakers will include Jeremy Naydler and Edwin Hübner.   

    Programme and seminar fee to be announced.

    To register your interest in participating please contact Andrew Wolpert   andrewjwolpert@gmail.com
