Rudolf Steiner's Course on Education for Special Needs: The 5th Lecture

5 – 6 October 2017

Invitation

This year, we will again continue our work with Rudolf Steiner’s Curative Education Course. Lecture 5 is closely connected with the preceding two lectures. In it, Rudolf Steiner completes the development of the foundations of his curative educational understanding of the human constitution and organization. Now, the dynamics of remembering and forgetting are placed at the center. Through their study, the interrelationship between bodily constitution and consciousness becomes tangible. Our lectures and working groups will approach this topic from various angles. How can these processes be observed phenomenologically and understood through the polar picture of the human organization? Which social-artistic, pedagogical and therapeutic approaches arise from this deepened insight?

We invite you warmly to this conference. It will be translated in German and English. Whisper-translations in other languages may be organized by participants. Please use the form enclosed to register.
