Anthroposophic Meditation Workshop

Meditation Weekend with Agnes Hardorp and Thomas Mayer

Friday 7 p.m. - 10 p.m., Saturday 9:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m., Sunday 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

How do I come into a meditative deepening that connects me to my own spiritual source?

In this course we will become familiar with Rudolf Steiner`s approach to meditation which meets the western mind quite differenty from many forms of meditation originating in the east. The work always involves a heightening of consciousness, becoming more awake through the focus on an object, an inner picture, or a text before releasing this and seeing what "wants to happen". This has a very rejuvenating and empowering effect. The aim of this introductory course is connecting to your higher self. For this we will do many different exercises, always followed by a sharing of our experiences. On Saturday afternoon we will go out into nature and practice perceiving the elemental beings at work there.

Many people would like to make meditation a solid part of their daily life. Meditation is a fundamental souce of nourishment for body, soul and spirit. But this is not easy if you are on your own with it. Agnes Hardorp and Thomas Mayer have been offering courses in meditation for over 14 years in order to help people overcome their obstacles.

In the course we aim to find the „eye of the hurricane“. In meditation you find a place of inner quiet. You become centered and enlivened. Meditating regularly helps you with the challenges of everyday life. The constant inner dialogue and the worries that circle around in your head stop. Essential things come into focus. In meditating you arrive deeply in the home of your own soul and wake up to subtle, supersensible spheres. In the course we explore many facets of meditation and do many types of exercises so that each person can find their point of access.
