The Topic: The Foundation Stone Meditation
This weekend is dedicated to making The Foundation Stone more "accessible." Everything you study in the future will be enriched by taking up this great meditation, which Rudolf Steiner called "the Dodecahedral Stone of Love." With the stong support of eurythmy, we will learn some of its "secrets" and ways to work with smaller portinons which have special connections-- the "rhythms" which were given by Dr. Steiner. The Foundation Stone Meditation contains all anthroposophical content in the fewest words possible. No wonder it feels daunting! May it become our constant companion after this weekend.
Margaret Shipman has been a member of the Anthroposophical Society for over 20 years and considers the work of Rudolf Steiner to be the core of her life. In 2002 she started a national study group for anthroposophy- "Geographically Engaged Members Studygroup", or G.E.M.S. She is also a cellist and pianist and spent 26 years repairing and making instruments of the violin family. She co-authored the book titled "Violin Restoration" with her mentor, Hans Weisshaar, who was in the second-ever Waldorf class and knew Rudolf Steiner as a child.
