Come join in our overnight winter study

For our winter study meeting this year we would like to go deeper into and further our understanding of BD Prep 501, the horn silica preparation. The 501 preparation is one that requires greater exploration as well as possibly more widespread use in our own Pacific NW Region - Let's help facilitate this work! Steiner's Agricultural Course Lectures 1 through 5 will be discussed and it will be useful for us all to read and work with these chapters prior to the meeting. We can go through the lectures collecting information that relates to 501, or quartz , or the light and warmth properties....Reading Lecture 7 in Man as Symphony of the Creative Word can also be helpful.

Discussion on where the Oregon BD Group is headed in this new year as well as over the next years to come and how our mentoring and training is going will also be addressed.

All are welcomed to attend and are greatly appreciated for their presence. So please join us, new and current members alike! Please bring:
• Brown bag lunch for Saturday
• Potluck items for Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast and lunch
• Your own dish, glass, utensils, napkin
• Whatever you sleep in, under and on
• Musical instruments
• Seeds for seed exchange

If planning to spend the night and have related questions please call Carol Cox at 503-623-6043. There is also a Best Western Hotel nearby 503-623-6300.
