Dear friends, here is the short version, I will do the full write up tomorrow
These 2 gate keepers of our universe, carry the divine plan of The Trinity & the Sophia, the architects of human evolution. Their conjunction can be seen as a kind of ‘cosmic conference’. And we, the whole of humanity, are being called to attend this confab.
THE CALENDAR OF THE SOUL by Rudolf Steiner (Roy Sadler’s translation with added verse titles)
The quartet of the Christmas verse, its complement in Epiphany’s 2nd week,
its opposite in the southern hemisphere now (the Saint John’s verse),
and its mirror in the last week of Saint Johnstide.
THE SPIRIT CHILD
I feel the spirit child set free
from spell in womb of soul;
in heart’s bright radiance
from seed of holy Cosmic Word
the heaven’s fruit of hope
is growing into farthest worlds
rejoicing from my being’s ground of God
AT THE ALTAR OF THE HEART
The soul’s creative power
from depths of heart aspires
to fire the forces of the gods
to right activity in human life
and form itself in human love
and human deeds.
AT THE ALTAR OF THE SENSES
The world’s light-glancing beauty
from depths of soul compels me
to free in cosmic flight
my own life’s god-enwoven forces,
and trusting seek the self I am
in world-wide warmth and light.
THE SPIRIT’S GIFT
Enchanted in the glory of the world
I feel the weaving of the spirit;
it’s veiled my own being
in drowsiness of sense
to give to me the strength
that in my narrow bounds
I’m powerless to give myself.

Unwrapping our Cosmic Gift: Thoughts on the Christmas Conference 1923
with the Central Regional Council. Themes inspired by Prokofieff’s book: May Human Beings Hear it! include: Turning Points of Time; Christ, Sophia and Michael; Foundation Stone Meditation.Two Turning Points in Time – The Mystery of Wisdom, and The Mystery of Will
In 1923/24, during the Christmas Conference, Rudolf Steiner presented humanity with the Foundation Stone Meditation: an amazingly rich imagination, planted in our hearts and shining brightly like a guiding star. Steiner also gave us many other gifts during that time which we will ponder in our hearts.
Leading thoughts, verses, songs and imaginations will be woven together in this artistic offering before the Holy Nights.
Special guestLucien Dante Lazar will provide a sprinkle of musical interludes throughout our event.
We will be joined by our old friend Dennis Dietzel in this performance.
We will go into small breakout groups to explore the theme: “How does the Foundation Stone Meditation speak to you?”
