Chicago Event – Whitsun Sunday – Watercolor Painting at the World Festival of Knowledge

 

Dear friends –

Come join us this Sunday. Together we will create an Ecclesia, a vessel, a chalice

for the Spirit, by rising in our thinking, feeling & willing.

Then the spirit flame can spread out to become what Steiner called a “World Whitsun”,

which began in earnest at the Christmas conference, where the inverted Whitsun was born.

Our work is to take our individual Inner Whitsun & expand it,

into what Steiner calls the “World Festival of Knowledge”

a path leading from ‘Sprit Recollection’, to ‘Sprit Sensing’, to ‘Sprit Beholding.’

 

Whitsun Sunday 2pm – 4pm May 24th  2015

A Festival of United Soul-Endeavor

 

Warmth calls the light

The spirit to ignite

Gifts I will give

Together we will live

One for all & all for one

One for all & all for one

 

The ‘We in Me’: a Watercolor Exploration of ‘The Other’ with Nancy Melvin. We will work with the “Painting out of the Color” technique taught by Ted Mahle, from Rudolf Steiner College, one of Nancy’s teachers.

Group Eurythmy with Alison Biagi

Also the Friday Eurythmy class will present a short work in progress

With Christa Macbeth speaking the Spring Poem:

 

In May I go a-walking

To hear the robins sing.

The blackbirds and the thrushes

A-praising God the king.

 

It cheers the heart to hear them,

To see the leaves unfold.

The meadow covered over

With buttercups of gold.

Human hearts, once warmed, can rise up to meet the source of wisdom, like flowers turning toward the sun.
