Celebration for the Dead

Please join us on November 20th for our annual celebration for the dead. We will gather in the candlelight to honor our friends and loved ones with readings, poetry, eurythmy and music.

I have made ready a room
Here in my heart
With walls of warmth
And windows of color
Towards every side of the cosmos

Oceans, mountains and clouds
Are without,
Within – loving and light;
And here I invite you to come
Dear being I love.

Lead me in what you have learned
Now you have left your earthly
Body with so long suffering
And become a heavenly star
The uprising in dying.

Albert Steffen
from The Uprising in Dying,
Christy Barnes, editor

Celebration for the Dead

Sunday, November 28 at 11:00 AM

233 Autumn Rose Lane
Fallbrook, CA 92028

In the gathering darkness before the light of Advent, we take thought for those who have crossed the threshold. With readings and poetry, eurythmy and music we will enrich our sensing of our unseen companions. You may bring a list of those you wish to remember and read them aloud.

“In fact, everything that takes place in human beings through the outer world can be perceived by the spirit, including human souls who have passed through the gate of death….The dead can experience with us what we experience in the physical world. This is because these experiences belong not only to our world but also to theirs. Our experiences belong to their world when we thoroughly spiritualize what we experience in the outer world with spiritual ideas. Otherwise, what we experience as the effects of matter remains dark and incomprehensible to the dead. To the dead, a soul devoid of spirit is a dark soul. This is why the dead have become estranged from earthly life. We must overcome this estrangement. The so-called dead and the so-called living must learn again to live together inwardly…..” Rudolf Steiner, Cosmic and Human Metamorphoses.
