The attendees of Rudolf Steiner's Agriculture Lectures in 1924 were students of anthroposophy. They had studied Steiner's basic books, including Theosophy and Occult Science, and so Steiner spoke to this audience without having to go back to the basic spiritual-scientific conceptions of the human being and Earth evolution. Almost 100 years have passed since these lectures were given, and now biodynamics has grown tremendously and is practiced all around the world. Many people meet biodynamics for the first time on the farm or at the market and come to wonder: What is so different or special about biodynamics? What is the basis for these practices? Why is it so difficult to understand the Agriculture Course? Together with Sherry Wildfeuer, John-Scott Legg, and Alex Tuchman, we will explore the spiritual foundations of anthroposophy that tie directly into the Agriculture Course and help to make biodynamics more understandable and ever-more inspiring. This three-day track will offer the opportunity for participants to deepen their relationship to biodynamics through presentations, inner exercises, artistic work, and group discussion.
