All Study and Conversation Groups Events

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.

All welcome, no need to book. Suggested donation at the door £3/£2. Online events are currently free.

    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 29 April
    7pm - 8.30pm

    with 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.

  • Tuesday 30 April
    7pm - 8.30pm

    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!
