UPCOMING EVENTS

Please Join Us for a Group Reading of the Drama
“This War Is Not Inevitable”
7:00 Saturday Evening, October 27th
at the
Waldorf School of San Diego
3547 Altadena Avenue
San Diego, CA 92105
               This drama, written by Michael Hedley Burton, was performed in early September at the Fallbrook Library. We would like for those who were unable to travel up there to have the opportunity of exploring the script and learning about Rudolf Steiner’s efforts to bring a Threefolding Order of society into the chaotic situation of Europe after WWI. The final part of the play shows how in April 1919 Emil Molt asks Steiner to assist him in opening a school for the children of the employees of his Stuttgart Waldorf Astoria Cigarette Factory. Steiner was overjoyed at this request, and thus came about the birth of the Waldorf Schools.
               If anyone would like a copy of the script in book form ($15)
Contact Elizabeth Olley by October 22nd at:

THE EVOLUTION OF HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS AND DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY

A Talk Presented by RICH GRAMS

Friday, September 28th at 7:30
Waldorf School of San Diego 3547 Altadena Avenue San Diego, CA 92105

              There is a deep and remarkable relationship between humans and the machines that we use to supplement our lives. The conversation about the future of machines and human consciousness not only fascinates but falls far short of the perspective which Anthroposophical Spiritual Science is capable of bringing to the discussion. In an evening with ideas derived from Rudolf Steiner, Sergei Prokofieff, Valentin Tomberg and a multitude of other sources including original spiritual research, I will attempt to deepen that conversation with a set of ideas that I have not heard discussed in any other venue. I will deliver a perspective on sources, developmental trajectories, research principles and practices intended to create a platform of understanding which individuals can use in reconciling their need to use technology in our daily lives with the haunting suspicion that it harbors an evil which might engulf our culture and inner lives.

              Rich Grams is a life-long student of philosophy and explorer of several esoteric traditions. For the past 25 years he has immersed himself in self-study and meditation on the work of Rudolf Steiner. Rich is a member of the Viroqua Anthroposophical Group and lives in La Crosse, Wisconsin

Anthroposophical Society in America, San Miguel San Diego Branch Invites you to

Written by Michael Hedley Burton
Performed by Michael Burton and Christian Peterson
Concerning the birth of the idea of the Threefold Social Organism in 1917-1919

Tuesday, September 4th at 7:00 PM
At the Fallbrook Library
124 South Mission Road, Fallbrook 92028

Rudolf Steiner launched the idea of the Threefold Social Organism (Threefold Social Order) in 1917 in the hope that this would help shorten the war and prevent another great conflagration from breaking out at a later date. The times were against him then and he was unsuccessful, but the question of the hour is: "Did what Steiner attempt in those years plant a seed that has waited a hundred years to mature in our own age?"
