Exploring the Roots of
English Literature: Old English Poetry
With Coralee Frederickson

Wednesday, October 5, 9:35am–2:55pm
Thursday, October 6, 9:35am–12:25pm

The roots of English literature are deep in the alliterative tradition of Anglo-Saxon or Old English poetry of which Beowulf is the outstanding example. J. R. R. Tolkien, the author of The Lord of the Rings, was also an Anglo-Saxon scholar, and he asserted that our language and poetry were at their most vital in Old English. In this course, we will look at runes, Norse myth, and passages of Old English poetry and try to enliven our experience of the willful and imaginative poetic tradition that provoked such ardent feelings in Mr. Tolkien. Join us for this rich immersion into the beginnings of the English language and poetry, a course within the Poetics studies at ESV. All are welcome!

Coralee Frederickson, PhD, a graduate of ESV, has been the School Leader at Den norske Eurytmihøyskole, in Oslo, Norway, as well as the Program Director of their B.A. Completion Program, which was hosted over two cycles at ESV. Coralee is now the Co-Director of the Alanus University M.A. Program in Eurythmy, which is based in Alfter, Germany, and is also bringing a cycle of their program to our campus. All are welcome!

Location: All talks will be held at the School of Eurythmy, Hungry Hollow Rd., Chestnut Ridge, NY.

Fee: $75 for the course (five lectures).

Representing Anthroposophy:
Fall Conference and
Annual General Meeting

Thursday, October 6-Sunday, October 9

The 2016 Fall Conference and Annual General Meeting of the Anthroposophical Society in America will be held at Threefold Educational Center.

The planning group began meeting in December to talk about themes and intentions for this year’s conference. Several threads are being carried as the program comes into expression:

The evolution of consciousness as expressed in drama. Under the direction of Barbara Renold, speech artists and eurythmists are rehearsing scenes from Oedipus Rex, a Shakespeare Medley, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and The Trial of the Soul to be performed throughout the conference. Thank you to Creative Speech North America for a grant to help fund this work!

Working with the Theme of the Year, self-knowledge and the experience of evil today, as we strive to birth the consciousness soul individually and within our communities.

Integrating the members’ meeting throughout the weekend to inform and allow dialogue to flow.

How can these threads support our conversations on the life and cultivation of anthroposophy within the Anthroposophical Society in America?

Please save the dates and watch for further program information and early registration.

With Jennifer Brooks Quinn

Four Saturday Workshops starting October 8 — note new dates

The world stands more than ever in need of insights and actions that are born of the spirit, but what is our connection to the spiritual world? How can we find knowledge and insight to help us connect to ourselves, to others and to the spiritual world in a responsible way?

This is a course dedicated to the exploration of the faculties and conditions that join us to the spiritual world. We will study the chapter “Conditions for Esoteric Training” in Rudolf Steiner’s book, Knowledge of the Higher Worlds and Its Attainment. We will engage in artistic exercises, biography work and conversation to explore this territory, bringing together our questions, experiences and practices.

Open to all, including those new to anthroposophy. This is a core course that can support any program of foundation studies in anthroposophy program.

Jennifer Brooks Quinn is a Waldorf teacher, an adult educator and a biographical counselor with a practice in Spring Valley and New York City. She has been a director and co-director of Foundation Studies in Anthroposophy at Sunbridge College and The Brooklyn Waldorf School.

Tone Eurythmy Elements Based on Major and Minor and the Eurythmy Figures
With Ingrid Everwijn

Monday-Thursday, October 10-13, 9:00am-12:30pm

The two Tone-Eurythmy-Figures given by Rudolf Steiner in summer 1924 contain in their shapes and colors a variety of aspects and can be explored as a key to all musical elements. Ingrid Everwijn will explore in a four-morning workshop what practically can be developed by these key-figures.

Ingrid Everwijn studied eurythmy with Lea van der Pals and Christof Graf in Dornach, therapeutic eurythmy in England, and earned a Master of Arts at the University of Plymouth, UK. Since 1995 she has been a teacher and member of the directing colleagues at the Akademie für Eurythmische Kunst Baselland which transformed to Eurythmeum CH in 2011.

The Battle for Human Being and the
Need for Moral Imagination –
In light of the theme of the year
With Christine Gruwez

Friday, October 14–Sunday, October 16

More and more, we are confronted with meaningless violence, with terrorism, war, conflicts, resulting in an increasing feeling of insecurity and raising hate and fear. What has come under attack is nothing less than the humanity of human being. Facing this challenge, there is an urgent appeal to make a step towards moral imagination, as Rudolf Steiner developed in his Philosophy of Freedom. There is an urgent need not to think new ideas but to think in a new way, to think new in order to find Michaelic answers to what is aked from each of us.

The darkening that seems to have come over the world and humanity is not to be answered by light, but is to be transfigured by light shining through the darkness. In this way a new substance is developing in our midst: the substance of light having gone through the darkness: “transparency.” Transparency as a way to transform the darkness from within allows us to open an inner space where the need of our time can express itself and where moral imagination starts. This is the meaning of transforming the world and ourselves. The future Manichaean impulse, this radical project of redeeming the forces of evil, as understood by Rudolf Steiner, is in this way a continuing of the mystery of Golgotha towards the final transfiguration of earth and mankind.

Christine Gruwez studied philosophy and linguistics at the University of Louvain, Belgium. Since 1997, she has researched and written on Manichaeism and its relationship to anthroposophy. She has led many seminars and traveled extensively in the Near and Middle East, visiting places along the Silk Road where there are still traces of Manichaean communities. Her book, Walking with Your Time: A Manichaean Journey, addresses the question of good and evil in our time. Since 2012, Christine has been a member of the Vorstand of the Anthroposophical Society in Belgium.

Schedule: This workshop will begin with an evening lecture at 7:30pm on Friday, October 14; continue through a full day on Saturday, October 15; and conclude at lunchtime on Sunday, October 16. For those who cannot attend the full workshop, the Friday evening lecture is open to the public; click here for details.

One-Year Part-Time
Practical Training in Biodynamics

Registration Extended to Second Class Meeting
Saturday, October 15

In thirteen full-day workshops from September to June, the Pfeiffer Center’s One-Year Part-Time Practical Training in Biodynamics covers all the timely activities of biodynamics and gardening through the seasons. In the classroom, Mac Mead and expert guest faculty introduce and explain Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual science, the foundation of biodynamics. In the field, we learn and do good gardening practices — tilling and shaping beds, building compost piles, pruning, and much more. At the same time, the principles introduced in the classroom come to life in the field as we learn — by doing — how each of the biodynamic preparations is made and used through the cycle of the year.

Creating a Biography of Health:
Integrative/Anthroposophic Medicine With Dr. Steven Johnson

In this presentation, Dr. Steven Johnson will survey different ideas about early childhood, nutrition, mindfulness, practice and the process of aging in light of the work of Rudolf Steiner and emerging health paradigms.

Once Upon a Time . . .
Speaking Epic Poetry
With Barbara Renold

Saturday & Sunday, October 22-23

Two foundational streams of poetic expression meet in our English language and poetry. From the ancient Greeks we are gifted rhythm in poetry, epitomized in the hexameter, the meter that reflects the rhythm of the human being and the cosmos. This rhythm expands us to the distant horizons of the world. The World speaks from the widths of space. From the ancient Nordic peoples, alliteration, the repetition of a beginning sound, lays the basis for accenting in our language. The Universe speaks to us as lightning bolts or claps of thunder from above. These types of literature are the basis of the Waldorf Language Arts curriculum of the 5th and 4th grades.

This is the first of a series of four weekend workshops, each focusing on a different genre of poetry (epic, lyric, and dramatic), with the last session being an intensification of all three: Epic Speech: hexameter and alliteration (October 22-23); Lyric speech: classical and modern poetry (November 12-13); Dramatic speech: Shakespeare and a ballad (February 4-5); and Review/Intensification (March 11-12). The workshops can be taken as a series or individually. All levels of experience are welcome!

Barbara Renold is the director of the Threefold Mystery Drama Group. She was on the faculty of Sunbridge College from 1983 until 2007.

Schedule: Saturday: 1:30–3:00, Speech; 3:30–4:30, Eurythmy; 4:45–6:15: Speech. Sunday: 9:30–12:30, Speech. Private speech lessons are available Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon.

Location: The workshops will be held at Threefold Educational Center in Chestnut Ridge, NY.

Fee: $125 for one weekend workshop, or $400 for all four. Financial assistance is available upon request.

Frontier Eurythmy
Independent Training Course

Starts January

Consider a life in eurythmy!

This winter, we are are beginning a new class in our Frontier Part-Time Training, which has been a doorway for many devoted eurythmy friends to start their professional training in eurythmy. The Frontier program is ideal for those who want to begin their studies in professional eurythmy while honoring other existing commitments. The format also works well for those who live at a distance, as they attend the School of Eurythmy for study blocks during the year. Between blocks, students work on their own at home, with a local eurythmist as their mentor. The Frontier Part-Time Training focuses on the first year of the full-time training, learned over a two-year period of time.

Unlike the full-time training, we don't offer a new Frontier class every year, so if you've been thinking about beginning the eurythmy training, this is your best opportunity to enroll in our new part-time training program.

Information: Call 845-352-5020 x13 or email info@eurythmy.org.
