Inner Work Meets Outer Work: Self Development Course for Farmers and Gardeners
Explore how the activity of agriculture can inform your own personal growth
NEW DATES: January 8 - March 11, 2020, Wednesdays from 2-3:30pm EST/11am-12:30pm PST
Biodynamic agriculture was born out of the spiritual science of Rudolf Steiner. Steiner’s work could be seen as having three fundamental branches:
- spiritual scientific research;
- the practical/vocational applications of this research;
- his emphasis on helping others with self-development, encouraging a conscious engagement with the soul and spirit worlds.
These three branches interweave, each informing the others.
Inner Work Meets Outer Work: a Self Development Course for Farmers and Gardeners is unique in exploring how the activity of agriculture can inform our personal growth. Steiner recognized that the path of development is different for each person, so he presented many different avenues that could lead to personal growth. In this course, we will delve into the principles of Steiner’s suggested meditative practices, as well as his research into the nature of the human being’s capacity for development. Working with nature and seasonal rhythms provide opportunities for meditative practice, and our work as farmers and gardeners also has social, economic, and vocational aspects that create scenes of potential development.
