In a continent that was isolated from the historical Mystery of Golgotha until the time of the colonies, or a little earlier, the question can naturally arise, how did the Christ impulse take root in this land?

This three-part series – June 14, June 28, July 12 – will offer vignettes about how the Christ impulse lived at the time of Golgotha, at the beginning of the fifth post-Atlantean epoch, and in modern time. We will ask ourselves the question: what has been/is the particular “tone” or “coloring” of the Christ impulse in North America. The 3 sessions will cover:

  • Izapa, Mexico: the initiate Vitzliputzli and an initiation center at the time of Christ; Christmas and Easter events in Mesoamerica
  • Deganawidah, the Peacemaker, a North American initiate of the fifth post-Atlantean epoch
  • The revolution of Twelve Step: countering the demons of addictions, offering hope

In the first of the three sessions, we will consider:

  • Izapa, an Initiation Center at the Time of Christ: Christmas and Easter Events in Mesoamerica
  • The Popol Vuh, sacred book of the Maya, offers us an understanding of the momentous events that transformed American history at the time of Golgotha in accord with what we know from Rudolf Steiner’s revelations. The historical record offers confirmation that this change took place in the transition from Olmec to Maya culture.

Having worked with spiritual science over the last forty years, Luigi Morelli approaches American culture and history by weaving it with its myths, legends, and stories in a scientific and imaginative manner; all of this, he relates to the present forms of “American practical spirituality.”

Social change from a cultural perspective has been a closely related interest to the above. It has come in vocational/life experience through working with people with special needs in intentional communities of Camphill and L’Arche International and living in cohousing over the last eight years. Communal living, with its blessings and challenges, has been a constant source of inspiration for implementing social processes and bringing to life new social forms. Learn more via:
