Dialogue with the Living Earth: Workshops with Karsten Massei

Friday evening, 7 pm- The Essence of the Elemental World

Saturday morning, 9.30 am- Dialogue with the Elementals 1

 1 pm Lunch break

 Saturday afternoon, 2 pm 1- Dialogue with the Elementals 2

As human beings alive on the earth, we inhabit our surroundings together with spiritual beings that are sometimes called elementary beings or elementals. Working to actually know these beings is an enriching and healing activity both for ourselves and for the living earth. By attentively meeting the elemental world, we have direct contact with the spiritual reality of life. The elemental beings have gifts and messages for us. Karsten Massei will guide us through perceptual exercises to sharpen our inner sense of the spiritual processes around us and to engage with the beings of the elemental world. Where and how do elemental beings live? What are their tasks? How can we learn to perceive elemental beings? What wishes do the elementals have for humanity? How can they support our life impulses? How do we work with the beings of the elemental world? How can we help heal the elemental beings?

 Karsten Massei is a curative educator and therapist in Basel, Switzerland.

"My practice of suprasensible perception is focused on the beings of the elemental world, who are deeply connected with the life-structure of the earth. They indicate the burdens that the earth suffers, and they carry the forces for its healing. Through my research and work, I want to help promote understanding of the beings of the elemental world and convey what will help the elementals to do their great and comprehensive work.

Kittel & Co. Workshop
Jul

6:00 PM18:00

Kittel & Co. Workshop

Register HERE

Previously of the Grammy-winning Turtle Island Quartet, Jeremy Kittel has been a composer-arranger-collaborator for such diverse artists as My Morning Jacket, Yo-Yo Ma & the Silk Road Ensemble, and Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn. He blazes through a Bach violin partita as easily as a Scottish reel, bringing the same intense focus and precision to both. For the last few years the Michigan native, now based in Brooklyn, has been diligently building his own repertoire of music for a wholly original new group.

This Kittel and Co. show features mandolin phenom Josh Pinkham (named “the future of the mandolin” by Mandolin Magazine) and guitarist Quinn Bachand (who's toured with fiddling icons Ashley MacIsaac and Natalie MacMaster).

Kittel & Co.’s highly anticipated new album is set to release June 29 on Compass Records.

“Kittel’s group, with the mandolinist Joshua Pinkham and guitarist Quinn Bachand, takes the string band tradition to marvellously rarefied levels of collective virtuosity. Playing a repertoire from bluegrass to Bach to a strathspey and reel set… [they] sounded thrillingly spontaneous. ...Taking traditional music forward.” -Times UK

“Jeremy Kittel's beautiful sound is perfectly supported by his tight and powerful band of cutting edge string players. It's a rare group that can go from zero to sixty in a split second while also weaving such subtle textures into his compositions. They draw you in and then blow you away.” - Tim O’Brien

"A conspicuously original blend of genres… As fleet fingers fly, aromas of far-flung musical traditions appear and vanish like musical will-o’-the-wisps…  virtuosic improvisation at its very highest level…” -Berkshire Edge

“The music Kittel is making now has all the precision and virtuosity of the best classical players, but the wonderfully devilish, explosive drive of the best string bands."  - Devon Leger, HearthMusic

“Eurythmy Arise!” A Family  Exploration Camp
Jul
29
to Aug 4

“Eurythmy Arise!” A Family  Exploration Camp

A Family  Exploration

Come join us as we seek to discover what can arise and live in us through eurythmy  in a new setting: SUMMER CAMP!

For a few days, we will form community together in service of learning eurythmy, the wondrous movement that is born out of the essence of the Creative Word. Our goal will be to find this movement in a way such that it could arise spontaneously in our everyday life, such as a chance for parents to open the day or close the day, transition into a new activity, to bring stillness and focus, a chance to engage their limbs in the spiritual forces of the heavens and of the earth.

The children will have organized movement in the morning and in the afternoon time for farm work, recreation, learning to care for the sheep. So will the helping parents, though meal preparation will probably replace working in the garden. We’ll look to provide adult movement and conversation where we can find ourselves more strongly within balance and freedom to meet the creative forces of each new day and of our lives in general. 

We need courageous families who can bring a helping spirit and a wish to engage in eurythmy for themselves and their children.

We will be making most of our own meals, camp fires; interspersed activity between movement, talking, working, laughing, learning, swimming, relaxing in the awe of nature. Musical instruments are welcome.

Leading the camp:

 Toril  Alex , pedagogic eurythmist from Sweden, where she is currently involved in classroom teaching and the creation of artistic productions.  As a mother of five, she was previously involved in creating a homeschooling movement in Scandinavia, later providing humanitarian aid in eastern Europe and Russia, living and traveling extensively there with her family for 4-5 years.  She has her B.A. in eurthmy and has studied pedagogy, Russian, literature and musical science.

 

Cathy Sims-O’Neil, D.O.: anthroposophic physician, grandmother of two homeschooled children, and ever looking for ways to bring eurythmy out into the world.  “I’ve done eurythmy in the bathrooms of every hospital where I have ever worked.” She currently works as a neurologist in anthroposophic settings including Camphill, Waldorf  schools, and private practice.

Details:

Designed for children 1st grade through 8th grade

Limit will be 12 children

No previous experience with Eurythmy is necessary

Children and parents will be participating in eurythmy

Children must come with a parent

Plan on bringing your own tent

More information to be available when we have our group of participants

Arrival time: 4 pm Sunday, July 29th, 2018

Camp ends after clean up and ending circle on Saturday morning, August 4

Cost: $400 per family for those camping on land

Enter the Feminine Well - An Afternoon Workshop

Revering the winter, the dark time, and the mystery of the feminine void within each woman.

Incubate. Gestate. Renew from the inside.

Winter is a much underrated, even feared time within our larger culture so dominated by patriarchy.  Most traditional and indigenous cultures revered the dark, the mystery of earth in canyons and ponds, as well as birth and gestation and the dark cunt/yoni and womb from which human beings and all of creation is born. This workshop explores this void space with in us through guided ritual and journal practice.  Together we reclaim the sacredness and power of the dark places within us, the space of unknowing and of undoing, that sometimes terrifying but oh-so fecund place within.

The Oshima Brothers magnetic sibling sound and contagious joy derives from a lifetime of making music together. Raised in a musical family in rural Maine, these extraordinary young musicians have honed a harmony-drenched blend of contemporary folk, acoustic pop, and Americana. On stage they deliver songs rich with dynamic vocals, dreamy electric and acoustic guitars, octave bass, loop pedal and percussion to create a full musical experience evoking the intimacy of a coffeehouse with the exuberance of the big stage. Their debut album, The Oshima Brothers, released in autumn 2016, is a collection of 11 original songs that are soulful yet upbeat, touching on themes of love, loss, and the romance of travel. Sean and Jamie wander the country dancing, making videos, playing music and causing a ruckus.

Caring for the Senses from Birth to 7

In this hands-on workshop we will explore each of the twelve senses and their development and care for children from birth to 7 years old. By working with the insights of anthroposophy alongside our individual inquiry we can come to perceive how to nourish and support the senses and with them children’s healthy development. How do we restore balance and maintain a state of well-being in those we care for? What truly nourishes children given the times we live in?

Sliding Scale: $35 - $65
