Practicing the Art of Conversation with Heightened Awareness Finding “The Big Picture” for the Future!

Each year, on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, the Mid-Atlantic Area of the Anthroposophical Society hosts a gathering of as many individual members and branches of the ASA as can travel to the location chosen for this event. This year, the Berkshire-Taconic Branch of the ASA is the proud host of the 2023 gathering for a second time. Now, imagine how close it is to you and come join us!

The lovely surroundings of Mettabee Farm’s Barn is again where it will be held. Participate toward building the BIG PICTURE for the future through conversation, aligning ourselves together, and supported with the imagination of the three Rosicrucian elements — Ex Deo Nascimur, In Christo Morimur, Per Spiritum Sanctum Reviviscimus.


Participate in building the BIG PICTURE for the future through conversation, aligning ourselves together, supported by the three Rosicrucian elements:

Out of Godhead we are born.
In Christ death becomes life.
In the Spirit’s cosmic thoughts the soul awakens.

Suggested reading: “Michaelmas and the Soul Forces of Human Beings”, Rudolf Steiner, Dornach, GA/CW 223, 9/27- 10/1/1923
