The Holy Grail Study Group with the Central Regional Council ASA
“The pupils of the Grail were told of a state which humans would attain in future. Possessed of clear, alert consciousness, their being would be purified, the substance of the human body would become as pure and chaste as that of the plant, and their organs of reproduction transformed.” ~ Rudolf Steiner, The Mysteries of the Holy Grail, Chapter 12 “The Higher Calyx”
The Central Regional Council of the Anthroposophical Society in America invites you to join the ongoing study conversation. The study has been divided among two volunteers who will summarize their section to rebuild it as a foundation for our conversation. Please familiarize yourself with the lecture if possible so you will feel comfortable sharing your reflections and thoughts with the group.
Rudolf Steiner, The Mysteries of the Holy Grail, Chapter 12 “The Higher Calyx” and Chapter 13 “The Resonant Chalice,” excerpts from Steiner’s lectures given at Nuremberg on 2 December 1907 (GA 92) and Stuttgart 16 September 1907 (GA 101), will be the focus of the April 6 meeting.
Chapters 12 and 13 in the book can be found online at the CRC’s website by clicking this link.

This collection of lectures has been republished by Rudolf Steiner Press under the title The Mysteries of the Holy Grail: From Arthur and Parzival to Modern Initiation. The book was compiled and edited by Matthew Barton, published by Rudolf Steiner Press in 2010.

“There is a knighthood of the 21st century
whose riders do not ride through the darkness
of physical forests as of old,
but through the forest of darkened minds.
They are armed with a spiritual armor
and an inner sun makes them radiant.
Out of them shines healing,
healing that flows from the knowledge
of the human being as a spiritual being.
They must create inner order, inner justice,
peace and conviction in the darkness
of our time.”
~ Karl Konig
