On Saturday, October 21, Fergus Anderson of the Crossfield’s Institute will be leading an experiential workshop, “Steiner’s Philosophy of Freedom from the Inside Out,” for anyone interested in consciousness studies from an anthroposophical perspective. It will focus on the nature of the experience of thinking, and how this lays the foundation for Steiner’s understanding of the human being. The workshop will also consider the role of meditation, both as a research method and as a means of bringing about personal change. The workshop is appropriate for teachers, healthcare practitioners, artists, scientists, philosophers or anyone else interested in the human being. No previously knowledge of Steiner’s work is necessary. Admission will be by free will donation.
Fergus will also be giving a shorter public talk on Friday, October 20, at 7:30 p.m. on the same topic. It will also be held in the School Hall.
