May 3-5, 2024

Fair Oaks CA

Your chance to experience Karl Konig’s 52 Drawings for each Calendar of the Soul Verse and also hear Richard Steel’s insights from his 50 plus years of working with these verses.

“The course of the year has its own life. With this life the human soul can unfold a feeling-unison. If the soul opens to the influences that speak so variously to it week by week, it will be led to a right feeling of itself’ Rudolf Steiner, preface to the second edition of the Calendar of the Soul in 1918.

Singers Wanted

Singers Wanted!

There will be an Easter Festival Event organized by the Christian Community on Saturday April 13 at Paloma Hall.  (More information to come!)

A small group of singers will be singing a beautiful Easter hymn in the morning during The Consecration of the Human Being service on the 13th of April, and also helping the community to sing the same song in the afternoon program.  

Singers are needed to prepare the song!  

Esther Centers will be leading our practices on Sunday March 17 and Sunday April 7, at 10:30, at Susan Cook’s home on the westside.  Please consider joining us!  The song is S-A-T-B.  A youtube recording of the hymn is attached.  Esther can provide you with a recording of the part you would like to sing in advance, if you would like.  Contact here if you want to join us!

Easter Sunrise Singing

Easter Sunrise Singing!

You are warmly invited to join in Easter Sunrise singingEaster Sunday, March 31st
Meet in Capitola* at 6:30 AM; sun rises at 6:54 AM.
Armand Ruby will provide music for all and lead the singing. 
*Same location as in recent years, on the Capitola/Jewel Box bluff. That spot has a nice southeasterly view, so weather permitting we will be able to see the sunrise, and there is plenty of free parking.

Location: aim your GPS for 1375 Prospect Ave., Capitola, CA 95010
As with every site, although unlikely, there is always the possibility that we will encounter another group of Easter celebrants, so if that happens we will adjust accordingly.
Parking: there should be plenty of free, open parking on Prospect Ave. and adjoining streets; you will see signs prohibiting non-permit parking, but that only applies during May-September. There is also paid (metered) parking down below on Cliff Drive, but we shouldn’t need to use that.
Please join us in singing-in the Easter sunrise!
There will also be an Easter Festival Event organized by the Christian Community in connection with the Branch on 
Saturday April 13 at Paloma Hall.  More information to come!
