CONFERENCE SERIES: PART 2, WHAT HAS COME ABOUT
Dear Members of the Anthroposophical Society
To incarnate, the spiritual requires a form. The form must fit the purpose if life is to flourish within it.
So that a meaningful development of Anthroposophy on earth among human beings might take place, Rudolf Steiner re-founded the Anthroposophical Society at the Christmas Conference of 1923/24. Every step, every aspect, every word of this statute had been thoroughly considered and intensively deliberated. It was not intended as a conventional statute but as a description of the present life in the Anthroposophical Society.
After one year this statute was replaced, and the body of the Society, created with the greatest awareness at Christmas 1923/24, was exchanged for another – without being generally realized and understood.
Thus, even today, the Anthroposophical Society no longer lives in the form appropriate and intended for it.
How could this happen? What were the reasons? What were the consequences of this happening in the various phases of the Society’s development? And what is its significance for us?
After we focused on the intention of the Christmas Conference and the social sculpture of its statutes during the first conference from June 16-18, we want to work with the above questions and – where possible – answer them during our second conference from November 24-26.
We cordially invite all interested members worldwide to attend. The conference will also be streamed live in German and English. We kindly ask you to register for the in-person conference as soon as possible. The schedule of the streaming can be found here (PDF in English is at the bottom of that page).
