Anthroposophy opens its wellsprings, so that the human will, carried by love, may draw from her waters. It brings to life love for humankind and thereby works creatively in impulses for moral action and true social interaction.” — Rudolf Steiner

“In the new mysteries the whole earth becomes an altar…Our friends & colleagues become for us, the terrible & wonderful actors in the ceremony of our initiation.”  ~Adam Bittleson

My mission dear friends, is to share spiritual scientific research, and to co-create a conscious community. Let this be a clarion call to all who seek to know the being of Anthropo-Sophia.  Let us join together in service –

“…That good may become
What from our hearts
We are founding,
What from our heads
We direct,
With single purpose…”
~The Foundation Stone Meditation by Rudolf Steiner

Dear friends – Not being able to travel to present my Spiritual Research, I made a little page to share some recorded offerings. Please tune in & freely pass them on…Thanks…xox

As of September 2020 I am ready to bring my Festivals, Lectures & Programs to your community once again! 

HERE IS THE RECORDING of Vitae Sophia~ A Whitsun Festival of United Soul Endeavor with Hazel Archer-Ginsberg, with Guest Speakers Lisa Dalton & Geoff Norris

 Online Whitsunday, 31 May 2020 from 10 am–11:15 am EDT Zoom Call* Sponsored by the Anthroposophical Society in New Hampshire

Through leading thoughts and conversation we are called to redeem the ether spheres to create an Ecclesia, a chalice for The Sophia. Then the spirit flame can spread out to become what Steiner called a “World Whitsun”, which began in earnest at the Christmas Conference. The Whitsun Festival highlights one of the greatest challenges of being human: placing our individual gifts, in right relationship within the social realm. This challenge is especially strong now during this ‘pandemic’. Our groups striving to know Spiritual Science must work together as a community, to have the possibility to create a new culture where a sacrament is possible in every encounter. Our individual strength is enhanced by weaving our gifts together, kindling our social world in conscious community.

Here is the recording of “Crowning” with Hazel Archer Ginsberg, and Eurythmist Raven Garland 

Anthroposophy Atlanta Lunch & Learn Hosted by Angela Foster & Jordan Walker of Wisdom Working – 

Is this ‘global pandemic’ entreating us to awaken to the etheric realm that we share in common with the earth? Perhaps the coronavirus is an admonition for us to reconnect to the sun-forces now imbued with the Etheric Christ, waiting to be recognized and employed in these current evolving conditions – an invitation for all of humanity to rise to a higher stage of initiation – a Crowning re-birth.

How do we look at the karmic connections that shape current events? Our work with those on the “Other-side of the Threshold” can give us clues about the causes and purpose of epidemics and the ways of healing ourselves, our beloved dead and the Earth.

Explore the many cultural expressions that work with and celebrate our beloved dead. Prepare the way for the Unborn and for the future of humanity. Become inspired to renew or create your own tradition. Learn to find your destiny and meet your karma. Prepare for your own conscious crossing into the journey between death and rebirth by asking question like: Where did I come from? What did I come into this life to do? Who is with me on this journey?

This site mentioned in the December 2016 issue of 

“Hazel Archer Ginsberg has an astonishing blog which is doing quite abundantly the work suggested by Rudolf Steiner’s original Calendar of the Soul. That first edition explored the history of each day and the aspects of the starry world. The Calendar of the Soul most of us know today is a potent extract, the key verses about the human soul’s development with the seasons, but Hazel’s blog which you can receive as daily updates is a great initiative of history, biography, star wisdom, art, festival insights, essays, and poetry, plus events at the Chicago Rudolf Steiner Branch”. ~John Beck, editor Being Human
