Most esoteric traditions teach that a human being is composed of a physical body that is animated by a soul and a spirit. The soul and the spirit are known traditionally as subtle bodies. Misalignments between the subtle bodies require a person to initiate a dialogue process of inner transformation called initiation.
This newly revised program is designed to explore the fundamentals of this process through a combination of lecture, artistic work, and seminar conversations. The first three-week intensive covers basic principles, and the second three-week intensive moves the basics into deeper themes. The intensives may be taken separately or consecutively.
The daily flow of the course begins with lectures on the challenges and potentials of initiating changes in the subtle bodies, as seen through the lens of Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual science. The second period engages the artistic faculties through guided collage exercises that allow for precise journaling of feelings arising from the design process. The third period is devoted to seminar conversations on texts that describe the dialogue process found in initiation science. Afternoons are devoted to working with these themes through painting.
