The Karma of the Anthroposophical Society and its Repercussions into the Present
by Luigi Morelli on Wednesday, February 17th at 7:00 P.M. at The Brookline Public Library, Hunneman Hall, 361 Washington St. Brookline, MA 02445. This event is sponsored by The Anthroposophical Society of Greater Boston. For more information, please call Kenneth Ingham at 617-969-0388. Free, Open to the Public
The Anthroposophical Society is the place in which different esoteric streams find their
integration, the place in which all true Michaelites have a home. What is the reality at this
point in time? This lecture will consider the polarities at play in many areas including:
• in the life of Rudolf Steiner, his activities and teachings
• in the contrast between Steiner’s two closest collaborators: Marie Steiner and Ita Wegman
• in the contrast between the first and third panels of the Foundation Stone Meditation
• between Aristotelianism and Platonism, Magi and Shepherds, Saturn and Moon paths.
• in modern tendencies of North American social reality
Finally, we will consider what are the repercussions in the present. What can be done?
Luigi Morelli has studied anthroposophy for 28 years and extensively researched American history in parallel with legend and myth, publishing the results in the last seven years. He has worked and lived with developmentally disabled adults in spiritually-oriented communities (Camphill and L’Arche), and offers trainings in Nonviolent Communication.
