Festival – Whitsun

Many are called, few are chosen…

Dear Sisters & Brothers –

As seekers on the path, have you ever felt utterly alone, overwhelmed, or even a bit lost?

Perhaps when you 1st began to know anthroposophy?

Steiner speaks of this in ‘How to Know Higher Worlds’ & in the 5th Gospel.

We have an opportunity on Whitsun to recognize & acknowledge the isolation that can come from our striving, a mirroring of the experience of the apostles those 10 days between Ascension & Whitsun.

That uncomfortable feeling when waiting feels like wrestling.

During our time together, we will work with the Whitsun imagination to creatively explore how we may engage in the lifting out of the ‘Me’ into the ‘We’, out of opinion into wisdom; warming the I, to open the heart, in support of healthy community.

We will endeavor to strengthen our individual soul forces to collectively open the portal into the Spirit worlds.

 

As Steiner’s Whitsun verse states:

“This portal’s key the Soul may fashion

If she herself grow strong within the strife”

“May our feeling penetrate

To the center of our hearts –

And seek, in love, to unite with those who share our goals

And with the spirits who look down benevolently

on our hearts earnest strivings

Sending us strength from realms of light

to illuminate our love.”

 ~Steiner’s Verse for America
