MOVING WORDS, A pre-performance talk by Daniel Polikoff
In times of fire, flood, and social upheaval, poetry and fairy tale may seem inconsequential, yet such forms of imaginative expression console, inspire and educate the soul. After touching upon some of the cultural background relevant to Rudolf Steiner’s own sense of the vital role of art in life, the talk will offer perspectives on the special—and closely interrelated—characters of poetic language, fairy tale, and eurythmic movement. The talk is intended to prepare and enhance the experience of the performance for adults.

Neighborhood parking is limited. MUNI lines 1, 3 and 24.

The Greater Bay Area Community Gatherings

A Note on The Greater Bay Area Community Gatherings

We are looking forward to the Biodynamics and Health event of the Greater Bay Area Community Gatherings scheduled for November 18.  (See just below this note for the posting)

This event is the fourth such gathering.  They have been received with great enthusiasm.  It is hoped that you will continue to attend and support this initiative to enliven the Anthroposophic Movement in the Bay Area, and to use it as a forum for conversation and deepening.

We must begin to look at committee-formation because reliance on these events will not be enough to create and maintain institutions that we value, like lectures and talks, care circles, buildings, community involvement, movement of biodynamic food to the east and west bay…., health and medicine events, festivals.  We need your interests and expertise.
