International Latin Languages Conference
(English, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, French, Romanian)
7.-11. July 2018
It is with great joy that we invite you to the first Latin Countries conference at the Goetheanum.
The central theme will be the human soul, the place where the world is reflected inwardly in the human being and where it finds a core for new life. How does the human soul live and transform in different Latin-speaking cultures and countries? What does each culture contribute towards peace? How can the differences be acknowledged in a way that concurrence becomes increasingly possible, as well as a space for what is essentially human, which unites, respects and reconciles the differences? How is Anthroposophy present in the different cultural spaces, making free acts possible for the realization of peace? All activities, talks and working groups will be offered in Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese and Romanian with the option of English translation. There will be artistic representations from different countries. Working groups will be offered to deepen understanding of the conference’s theme and the work with the Anthroposophical Society’s Foundation Stone in the mornings, and for the exploration of artistic and social themes in the afternoons. Members of the School of Spiritual Science may participate in Class Lessons delivered each time in one of the conference’s languages. Meanwhile, introductory conversations about the School for Spiritual Science will be available for those people interested in finding out more. For people coming from far away countries with limited resources, there are possibilities to receive financial support to cover travel expenses or participation fee. To ask for support, please contact Ioana Viscrianu (firstname.lastname@example.org). We are delighted to welcome you at the Goetheanum!
