Please come join us for a warm and welcoming weekend as we strive to deepen our study, work and discuss Biodynamics. For our winter study this year, we plan to review The Agriculture Course Lectures 3 and 5*. We will focus on the preparation materials and their nature. Plan on reading these lectures prior to the meeting and try to get a sense for each substance and the way Steiner characterizes each prep by use of these substances. Each one being hugely spiritual. This is where we find impacts on taste, nutritional content, etc. In Lecture 5 Steiner gives much reference to the yarrow preparation. As the Oregon BD Group will be hosting this year's Fellowship of the Prep Maker's Conference, focusing on the Yarrow and Valerian Preps, we would like to spend a good deal of time strengthening our understanding as well as preparing for the event and enlisting help. All are welcomed to attend and are greatly appreciated for their presence. So please join us new and current members alike! Please bring a brown bag lunch for Saturday and potluck items for Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast and lunch. If planning to spend the night, please RSVP to Carol Cox at 503-623-6043.
