ONLINE SESSIONS, HOSTED BY SECTION FOR AGRICULTURE AT THE GOETHEANUM

With biodynamic perspectives through the year: which natural rhythms influence agricultural life and how rituals help us to get in touch with nature. Join these monthly online offers!
Offered by the international Section for Agriculture at the Goetheanum. Times are Central European Time.

What changes, what atmosphere, what particularities characterize each time of the year? How does the plant world develop, in which elements do we find the rhythm and how can we as humans be involved? On the one hand, we will delve into a specific topic, shed light on biodynamic specifics, and also leave time for exchange.

The main language of the online sessions will be English.

Participation Fee
These monthly sessions are available free of charge. However, those who would like to support the work of the section are cordially invited to contribute by clicking here.

Registration is possible until 2 hours before the session. Thank you for your understanding.

Conscious Co-creation and Resilience with Jean-Michel Florin and Eduardo Rincon
This session looks at the different qualities of the yearly cycles, which are specifically perceptible in agriculture. Fitting to these cycles, the session looks at the significance of the summer solstice in different regions and at the co-creating opportunities that farmers have, for example, to influence their farms through the use of the biodynamic preparations.

Discovering the Soul of the Earth with Jean-Michel Florin and Eduardo Rincon
The vitality of the earth is essentially revealed through vegetation, i.e. the growth, reproduction, and decay of plants. It shows its soul in the blossoming of plants, their colorfulness, and above all through the enormous diversity of the animal world. Rudolf Steiner draws our attention to the fact that the “astrality” of animals is an essential supplement for a healthy agricultural organism. This course will explore the specificity of the earthly summer state and the astral atmosphere of the earth, as well as looking at animals as key elements for the resilience of agricultural goods and large landscapes.
