The Seed:
Chaos, Cosmos, and Soil

Pfeiffer Center Midwinter Agriculture Intensive
Friday, January 18-Monday, January 21

Using Rudolf Steiner’s agriculture course as a foundation, we will explore “the seed” in its dynamic and complex relationship to the depths of the Earth, the expanses of the cosmos, and the agricultural individuality. Working in large and small groups, through art, movement, plant observation, and hands-on seed work (threshing and winnowing), we will delve into the mysteries of the seed-forming process.

This long weekend is truly a unique educational and social opportunity to broaden and deepen your understanding of the role of biodynamics in the development of humanity and agriculture. Make plans to join us!

Sheep to Shawl:
Exploring Fiber Transformation—
Deepening Our Experience of Color
Led by Chris Marlow​

10 Saturdays, January-December 2019
Starts Saturday, January 19

This course offers an opportunity to create a special garment by transforming wool fibers into a knitted shawl. Each participant will create a beautiful and functional piece that is imbued with healing forces and uniquely suited to his or her individuality.

The traditional hands-on activities of washing and carding wool, spinning with the spindle and the wheel, dyeing fibers with plant-colors and knitting will be approached with a spirit of research and renewal. Background reading, presentations and conversations will complement the hands-on activities. Regular practice and study — in addition to the work in class — is recommended and will amplify the experience of this year-long journey.

Each Saturday, art and/or movement classes will be offered to accompany the handwork sessions and bring enlivening impulses to each individual as well as the group.

This course is open to beginners and experienced fiber artisans.

Schedule: The course meets on ten Saturdays from 9:00am-5:00pm: January 19, February 23, March 23, April 27, May 25, June 8, September 14, October 5, November 9, and December 7.

Eurythmy Spring Valley
Agricultural Conference Performance

Saturday, January 19, 8:00pm

Once again as the outer world is quietly blanketed with snow, the annual biodynamic conference is held in Spring Valley, and the Eurythmy Ensemble will be bringing their emerging program to this evening's performance. In this new work, we follow a path of initiation that winds its way through many landscapes and atmospheres in search of the well-springs of life. In Mary Oliver’s poem “West Wind,” we hear the call to embrace life with all its dangers and pitfalls, to row the boat with all our strength toward the thundering sound of life’s mighty waterfall—for it is only through the torrent of experience that we can discover our higher calling. This journey leads us through barren regions of arid desert, where in an excerpt from T. S. Eliot’s twentieth-century masterpiece, “The Waste Land,” we are told: “Here is no water but only rock.” We seek to find our way through this desolate world until we can hear a “spring, a pool among the rock . . . / Where the hermit thrush sings in the pine trees.” This journey through the wasteland is echoed and enhanced through an interweaving of music from composers such as Zoltán Kodály and Peter Sculthorpe. We then begin to find a way forward on our spiritual quest in “Song of a Man Who Has Come Through” by D. H. Lawrence. The poet writes, “Not I, not I, but the wind that blows through me!” If we wish to redeem the wasteland, we must learn to become vessels, instruments of a higher world. Through our work with those higher powers can we can realize our humanity’s full potential. As we hear in the final lines of the poem, “What is the knocking at the door in the night? . . . it is the three strange angels. Admit them, admit them!” The program will also include a second part with various pieces of a lighter, humorous nature, as well as a grand composition for piano.

Location: Threefold Auditorium, 260 Hungry Hollow Rd., Chestnut Ridge, NY.

Admission: $15 / $9 students and seniors.
