This course will investigate the principles and practices of The Sacred Feminine, and its relationship with agriculture and food systems. The ethical costs and injustices of industrialized agriculture are intolerable, and we are called to make sacred again our concepts of nature and our connection to Earth. We will review the practices and beliefs that have brought communities, individuals, and the environment to the brink of catastrophic change. We will discuss how biodynamic agriculture and other sacred paradigms can help us move away from the edge of these disasters, exploring healthier and more just ways that we can treat land, water, soil, plants, animals, and each other. Through reading and discussing selected writings and lectures of Rudolf Steiner and others, we will deliberate the role of the human on Earth and the development of human consciousness. The course will emphasize the importance and significance of the humanities - stories, the analysis and exchange of ideas, and the creative expression of the arts - for the integration of ecological and social justice with reverence for the Earth.
Note: the course will begin in December and run through January 2020 with a mid-winter break. Exact dates to be announced.
