A two-day workshop with Philip Beaven during the Holy Nights.
On new year’s eve 1922 the first Goetheanum, painstakingly built by of volunteers over 9 years, was burnt down. This unique ‘house of the spirit’ with it’s original twin cupola architecture, was completely destroyed. One year later, at Christmas 1923, Rudolf Steiner gave to humanity the Foundation Stone Meditation, as a living spiritual re-formation of this great temple and as a Foundation Stone for the Anthroposophical Society. It contains the whole of the wisdom of the science of the spirit, as Rudolf Steiner presented it, in seed like form.
This course can serve as an introduction to the meditation for those unfamiliar with it, or as a deepening for those who wish to take it further. It will also be a help for those looking for ways to work with the mantrams of the School for Spiritual Science.
Philip Beaven is the Class Teacher at Island Waldorf School.
Philip completed a 4-year Eurythmy Diploma in London in 1979. After a short spell teaching children, his interests in the performing arts took over. For 26 years he worked at various times as eurythmist, actor, storyteller, dancer, puppeteer and director touring all over Europe and the US. After co-founding and teaching at the Academy of Living Movement in Vienna in 2003, he rediscovered his love of teaching children and took a class of children from grade 1 through 8 at the oldest Steiner school in the UK. He moved to Hong Kong and joined our school in September 2017.
