In this issue:

  • Festivals and the Mysteries: The Adonis Mystery – the Easter Thought, Rudolf Steiner April 19, 1924
    We may be surprised to learn that Easter was originally observed in the Autumn, and to discover what it was that changed in humanity that necessitated it becoming  Springtime experience.  We will explore together at our Easter observance.
  • Calendar of the Soul:  A transposition by Stefan Schwabe, recast in cadence and tenor into our current English, to bring to our appreciation their strength and spirituality in terms of today’s thinking, feeling and willing

  • Eclipse Housing Urgently needed:  
    As hotels are already booked by people coming from all over the world, we are hoping that community members will open their houses at a reasonable rate to out of towners attending the August 19-21 workshop and make a little extra money in the process.  Contact Christine Badura, [email protected]
  • Housing Needed for Summer Eurythmy Conference:  Portland Eurythmy is putting out a call for free or nearly free housing and/or transportation for participants in the course August 4-13.  Contact Meta Bruner, 503-200-0888 or [email protected]
