All of the biodynamic preparations can be strengthened and fortified by understanding the esoteric wisdom that lives behind how they are made and why they are used. With winter fast approaching, we will seek to understand the healing offering of the biodynamic three kings prep and how we can support its work through both inner and outer preparation. We will explore living consciously with the spiritual year towards deeper care and understanding of the natural world.
While we celebrate the cycle of the year collectively, these celebrations also represent and relate to the individual's path of development. The mystery schools of the past brought outer festivals to present the community with the esoteric wisdom clothed in outer forms. Today this wisdom is not engaged with consciously by the chosen few but is now for the many. Deepening our understanding and ability to participate in the spiritual year supports us on the path of inner development and in relationship to the spiritual world and to our farms, gardens, and communities.
In this webinar, we will examine how developing inner capacities allows us to more clearly perceive and bring healing activities to the land and to our communities. From this viewpoint, we will explore foundational pictures out of anthroposophy relevant to biodynamics and the renewal of agriculture.
This webinar will be part presentation, and part experiential exercises, drawing from the EduCareDo foundation year course, a self-directed, distance-learning course based on the principal ideas of Rudolf Steiner. Together we will orient towards the inner work and development of faculties of perception to support our relationship to our farms and our communities.
The EduCareDo foundation year course is part of the curriculum for the Biodynamic Farmer Foundation Year.

Anthony Mecca Is Farmer Training Coordinator for the Biodynamic Association. Anthony began farming 15 years ago, in search of a place to wonder, explore, and serve. In farming, he found hot sun, hard physical work, and community to be potent medicine. After five years learning from a diversity of farms, Anthony was called to the Hudson Valley of New York to begin Great Song Farm, a diversified vegetable CSA farm, in 2010. Here he found his kin and began deepening his work with biodynamic farming, anthroposophy, inner work, and community life. In 2018, Anthony passed Great Song onto other farmers to focus on Farmer Training while milking at Churchtown Dairy, near Hudson, NY. Fostering direct and meaningful relationships between nature, agriculture, and community is central to his work. Anthony brings experiences as a student, WWOOFer, apprentice, farm-worker, farmer, and mentor to his work coordinating Farmer Training at the BDA.
