‘Anthroposophy: In the Midst of Life’

A new lecture series keeping current the teachings of Rudolf Steiner will begin in just over a week at the Anthroposophical Society of New York City.

From the publicity:

Eugene Schwartz
Rudolf Steiner spoke frequently about the importance of understanding the role of death and the dead, but the subject remains unpopular among American anthroposophists. Eugene Schwartz explores Steiner’s often surprising and sometimes counter-intuitive indications about the nature of life after death, and suggests how much help they may provide as we face the challenges of modern life.

In the Midst of Life:
Understanding Death in Our Time
A lecture by Eugene Schwartz
Saturday, December 7 at 7 p.m.

Anthroposophical Society of New York City
138 West 15th Street

Lecture 1: Man Becomes Cosmos

We begin with an overview of times and places when Rudolf Steiner spoke about death and its aftermath. We then explore the “first half” of our experience of life after death, in which the human microcosm expands into the heavenly macrocosm and reckons with the karmic consequences of the life just lived. Eugene will draw on hundreds of Rudolf Steiner’s lectures to present a comprehensive panorama of this transformative stage of existence.

Eugene Schwartz has been a Waldorf school teacher, an educator of teachers, and an educational consultant for 33 years. He has given nearly 2000 lectures on Waldorf education and anthroposophy. His articles, podcasts, and videos are here.

Future dates: January 11, April 5, and May 17, 2014. Admission: $20 for the public, and $15 for Society members.
