Synopsis of the play: Spiritual teacher and clairvoyant Rudolf Steiner works to awaken people to the spirit. His enemies oppose him and his pupils don’t understand their task. But ancient memories and faithful friendships persist.Glen will describe how he researched and developed the play from historical records of events and conversations which followed the burning of the first Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland on New Year’s eve, 1922. He will share some of the important themes, sources and the esoteric and social significance.
Tuesday, November 15, 7 pm
Future Dawning, Branch Library
An exploration of Glen’s mystery play, which places the individuals from Rudolf Steiner’s mystery plays into a subsequent incarnation in the 21st century.
“The overarching context of Glen’s challenging drama addresses questions such as the pending incarnation of Ahriman, the dynamics of the renewal of the Mysteries in our time, the relationship between spiritual science and a hypothetical modern Christian church, and possible dangers inherent in new etheric (or sub-etheric?) modalities of healing. The drama also highlights many highly contemporary themes, addressing them from a spiritual aspect, such as the connection between spirituality and sexuality and the dilemmas many of us find ourselves facing when confronting issues relating to socio-political administration in an increasingly technocratic world.” ~ Dr. James Dyson
Wednesday, November 16, 7 pm, Bothmer Hall
