Event description


"There is not one truth, but a coincidence of all truths." - Rudolf Steiner

You've probably heard Rudolf Steiner's name, or about his efforts - including Waldorf schools, biodynamic agriculture, Weleda, Camp Hill communities, and more.

Maybe you know him as a Da Vinci-esque polymath who contributed to philosophy, mathematics, biology, architecture, and more. Or you've heard that he's the inspiration for Marvel comics' Dr. Strange; Rachel Carson's Silent Spring; Saul Bellow's fiction; or the work of the literary group the Inklings, which includes J.R.R. Tolkein and C.S. Lewis.

But getting into Steiner and his work (called anthroposophy) can be daunting, to say the least. With thousands of lectures and dozens of books filled with esoteric terms and philosophical gestures that would make a postmodernist blush, it's difficult to find a way into his vast body of work.

This one-session live seminar and Q&A will give you multiple doorways into Steiner's work, as well as a glimpse of the Western occult tradition, through one of its most developed branches.

Together, we'll go through some key aspects of Steiner's work, engage in some anthroposophical exercises, and create a pathway for you to go further in your study. It'll be fun, deep, complex, weird, respectful, and irreverant all at once. This session will go for two hours, with a short break in the middle, and time for Q&A at the end.


There are three kinds of registration.

INDIVIDUAL registration includes individual access to the course and the Q&A, as well as a link to a recording of the course for 60 days if you can't attend. $15.00

GROUP registration is for access to the course, Q&A, and recording as above, but it's for you if you intend to watch with more than one other person. This is an honor system thing, so please do sign up for GROUP if there are more than two people in the room. $40.00

PLUS registration includes a 20 minute, one-on-one follow-up meeting with me to talk more about the course. This is limited to 25 participants. When you sign up, you get the regular registration, but I'll also give you options to meet with me on Skype for a follow-up to the course where we can review, discuss, and meet one another. $75.00

Note: I take seriously the idea that esoteric knowledge doesn't belong to anyone, and that it isn't something to buy or sell. If you have circumstances that make payment at the basic level impossible, please let me know. That said, I'm only charging for my time preparing the course and any follow-up conversations, so please take that into account, too!
