In 1913 Rudolf Steiner laid the foundation stone for a new kind of building in Dornach, Switzerland. A modern mystery center was to be built, hewn by hand out of sculptured wood, formed concrete, and colored glass that would be an artistic rendering of humanity’s spiritual becoming and future path. Designed as a theater for the performance of Steiner’s Mystery Dramas, the Goetheanum was constructed by hundreds of workmen and volunteers over a ten-year period. People from all over the world formed the team of artisans who created a space so special that entering it was akin to stepping into the world of spirit. It truly grew to become a modern Mystery Center, one that was created to help modern human beings transform their perceptions, thoughts and feelings and thereby overcome the philosophical materialism that was already wreaking havoc on the world a century ago.
On New Year’s Eve of 1922, during that year’s Christmas Conference of the Anthroposophical Society, the building caught fire as the result of arson. Over the night the conference attendees and local firemen fought to save the Goetheanum, but it was burnt to the ground. This Christmas marks the 100th anniversary of the fire, which was both a great tragedy and a wonderful gift. That the burning was a tragedy is self-evident, but why was it a gift?
The Goetheanum was created out of spiritual insight and human artistry. It was created as a living building, one that not only had a physical existence but that also was an instrument to reveal the etheric world, the world of life. The fire burnt away its physical form, but it lifted the living substance of the building into the etheric world where it has become available for all those who seek it and want to work to reveal its world healing power. It is now possible to enter the building through artistic exercises, study and conversation, and to create spiritual community within its physically invisible walls.
Since the 1960s the inner Camphill community has worked, along with many others, to understand the etheric Goetheanum and has regularly inhabited it as a space in which to conduct spiritual work and spiritual research. Our wish is to join with others who are seeking access to this profoundly sacred space to continue the task Rudolf Steiner began a century ago. We hope to journey together in North America over the next decade, allowing the power of the Goetheanum to radiate into our troubled world.
The Camphill Community of North America is therefore hosting a gathering in the Holy Nights for those wishing to work for the future together through Anthroposophy, and to establish a safe home for this work in the living Goetheanum.
A full program is being developed which will include artistic performances, artistic experiences, lectures, conversation and social encounter. Some accommodation will be available at Beaver Run. There will be a conference fee to cover expenses but we will work to keep this to a minimum and will make the gathering accessible to those who cannot afford to pay.

Beginner's Level: SEGAN, THE SENSORY MOSAIC OF HEALING: A Portal into Transformation offered by AAP Graduate Ana do Valle
November 13 through 17, 2022
11:00 am to 2:00 pm Mountain Time
COST $500 USD (Credits For SE students are offered)
This Online Webinar will be recorded for those who cannot attend live via Zoom.
This workshop is designed to educate practitioners working in the trauma spectrum on integrating the SEGAN Model to support the organization of the Self. We will combine the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) created by Dr. Stephen Porges within the SEGAN. We will address complex trauma, attachment wounds, addictions, and other emotional and physical conditions related to Autonomic Dysregulation.
We will be discussing applications of the SSP for pediatrics, couples, individuals, and family systems. The SSP prepares the nervous system to respond to the ‘Essence of Safety’ (Neuroception). The SSP utilizes algorithms that progressively kindles the natural biological rhythms of homeostasis in the Nervous System.
The SEGAN MODEL further allows the client and therapist to develop a narrative that supports the essence of a felt sense-based intention that integrates the implicit memory, thereby guiding each individual in the co-creation of their own Mosaic of Healing.
When adopting the SEGAN MODEL (Sensation, Emotion, Gesture in colors, Action, and Narrative), the listening sessions are supported by artistic, creative activities and gestures that encourage expression, embodiment, coherence, and empowerment.
This model enlivens our awareness and understanding of life patterns. It correlates each hour of the SSP to a deeper relationship and organization of our conscious mind, or “I.” It supports the somatic “bottom-up” approach of creating the opportunity for subtle shifts in arousal, inviting imagination, inspiration and intuition, to strengthen our capacity to become present with ourselves and each other.
This process is a Healing Algorithm that accesses your creativity. By embodying the “Twelve Human Senses,” you will mobilize your personal and collective healing elements.
The SEGAN applies the principles of “Salutogenesis” by fostering coherence and promoting orientation towards empowerment and the awakening of one’s “Healing Pathway.”
We will be exploring the somatic, emotional, and creative elements of a journey that encompasses a trajectory that is similar to the crossing of a portal, the “Eye of the Needle.” By establishing an intention and allowing its natural unfolding (effortless), the client begins shifting.
Thus, the listening days are portrayed as an intentional and “Sacred Journey.”
You may implement this potent model in various settings, including therapy offices, schools, hospitals, residential facilities, outdoors, home, trauma centers, and community centers.
As a participant in this webinar, you will be able to create your own “Sensory Mosaic of Healing” and experience your life narrative in a new inspirational and transformational way. You will have the opportunity to compose your personal journey in a “fabric of poetry and art.” No previous experience with expressive arts is required in order for you to attend this webinar.

There are many courses available on High Sensitivity that will help you to: master your everyday life, get to know yourself better and take your needs seriously.
The special feature of our course is its systematic structure according to topics, which are adapted to the different layers of our personality.
The basis for this is on the one hand the Eightfold Path of the Buddha, as taught 3000 years ago, and on the other hand the beatitudes of the Sermon on the Mount. Both of them take up the complex structure of mind and body in a similar way, and subdivide it into eight or nine basic principles. Rudolf Steiner worked out the similarities between these two ways in the 20th century.
These sources and their system form the basis for this course.
Give the course a try. If you don't like it, you have 14 days unrestricted right of return.
The course was already something very special last time, but this time we are going one step further. Take a look at the preview of the course. You can find a lot that wasn't there last year. And we have developed a procedure that guarantees that you will not be overwhelmed and always know exactly what to practice and what to leave out. You'll be surprised how relaxing it can be.
