“The great festivals stand as symbols leading us to use our feeling and thinking in order to bring about an experience of the union with the universe, not in an indefinite way but in a most decided fashion. If this is felt again, the festivals become something different from what they are today. They will become implanted in soul and heart in a living way, and they will become what they are intended to be for us, that is, focal points in the year that join us to the spirit of the universe.”
– Rudolf Steiner (GA 54)

St. John’s Festival: Cosmic Rapture Grounded in Jubilant Hearts July 3rd

uriel-RS-2Presented by Hazel Archer-Ginsberg*
Come join our Initiatory Workshop/Ritual, to discover the New Mysteries of St. Johns-Tide.-To pass the test of Summer we will explore many questions:
 How do we stand wakefully within the sublime mysteries of the Summer-Tide,
to consciously embody ‘the spiritual wisdom of the gods’?
 Who is the mysterious Archangel of Summer?
 Who is John the Baptist? What do his sayings “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”
And “He must increase, but I must decrease.” really mean?
 What is the secret to healing the ‘soul-fever’ so prevalent in society today?
 What is the mystery of the Bee & Stag? The Dragon-fly, & other elemental beings?
 How can we understand the ‘Cycle of the Year as Breathing Process of the Earth’?
Together we will work to strengthen our true “I”, enlivening our will forces with various social-artistic exercises

Pot Luck Dinner 6:00
