Zoom presentation by 
Johannes Kühl,
Switzerland, Dornach, Goetheanum, Natural Science Section of the Free School of Spiritual Science.Since Aristotle humanity lives and thinks with the concepts of the four elements and the ether. With the beginning of the scientific age these concepts seem to become obsolete but they come up again and again and Rudolf Steiner used them in Anthroposophy and it seems to approach them has a lot to do with our relation to nature and the earth in general. So it seems relevant today to deepen their understanding and experience. That I would like to try in this presentation.
The event is organized by the program committee of the Chicago Rudolf Steiner Branch. For more information, please, contact Andrei Onegin at aonegin@rschicago.org

The Climate Needs Our Change

Autumn meeting of the Natural Science Section

The CLIMATE needs our CHANGE

Research Institute at the Goetheanum
1. – 4. October 2020

Technically, almost anything is possible. The spring of 2020 has shown what is also politically and economically possible, if a common insight unites people. Within a few weeks you saw massive restrictions of individual well-being zones the governments worldwide had to impose in order to slow the global spread of a Virus—even the far-reaching adjustment of air traffic.  

For half a century we have known what the salutary effect of such air travel measures would be for climate and the atmosphere. Nevertheless, shortly before the Corona crisis, business associations – politically successful – had warned against “premature action” in regard to merely increasing the price of aviation fuel. Why can we not, without a virus, implement what we already correctly recognized long ago? How must we ourselves change, so that knowledge and feasibility come together?  


In this conference we invite you to consider the long, shared history of climate and earth and their organismic character.
How did the current situation come about, what is the “factual material,” and how can people implement their knowledge of a healing action in the individual fields of life? Presentations from experts will introduce topics for discussion in small groups or in plenum. On the third day we will be concerned with the vision of the Fridays For Future youth, which calls for sustainable use of the environment. What reasons are there on a mental and social level that this “dream”, shared by many, cannot lead to action? What does a change in consciousness look like, how does a cultural revolution, which gives humanity coherence and power, shape its future and that of its environment from the feeling of belonging together? The conference closes with an outlook on lived spiritual insight, which can arise from self-knowledge and self-training.

The conference will be conducted in German.

We look forward to your participation! Matthias Rang and Johannes Wirz with the Section team in Dornach



Is there a place for “Spirit” in Science and Medicine?

An Open Seminar on The Natural-Scientific Foundations for Understanding Humans as Autonomous Spiritual Beings

When: 8 June, 2018 – 9 June, 2018

Where: University of Westminster, London

At a time when reductionist and mechanical views of the Human Being dominate our Society and Medicine and more holistic approaches are being attacked in the name of Science, this seminar gives the opportunity to hear the scientific and epistemological foundations of another paradigm.

Prof. Peter Heusser will give a series of contributions based on his book Science and AnthroposophyProf. David Martin will give an overview of the research activity related to Anthroposophic Medicine on the Continent and Prof. Gene Feder and Dr.David McGavin will describe two UK research projects. A plenum will be chaired by Prof. David Peters.

The cost of the seminar is £120. For more information and booking visit https://elysiahealth.org/event/seminar-humans-as-autonomous-spiritual-beings.
