Letter to Branch Members

Dear Members

We are asking that all of you who receive this email,  the members, join us on January 27, 2015 at 7.00 pm in the Santa Cruz Waldorf School Eurythmy Room. We shall start with an Eurythmy exercise led by Szilvia Budai and then I would like to take the opportunity to introduce to you the new members of the Core Group – Szilvia Budai and John Baring – and to thank the departing members – Carin Fortin, Delmar McComb, Carrie Gibbons and Armand Ruby. I would also provide a review of the activities of the Branch over the last year and start a conversation on what the membership might wish for the future. We have had some wonderful programs this year culminating in the Holy Nights study program organized by Wanda Taylor,  so I hope you can join us as we talk about the future. This is an important meeting of our branch so I hope you can attend.

A New Sacred Geometry: The Art and Science of Frank Chester // Book on Frank Chester’s work Published

The first book on the work of San Francisco artist, sculptor, geometrician, and teacher Frank Chester, written by Seth Miller, is now available.
“When we study the biography of great individuals who have contributed something rare and unique to human culture, we might ask ourselves: Would I have recognized or supported such a person before the rest of the world did, had I been given the opportunity?
Mr. Chester is such a pioneer. His dedication to principles of higher mathematics and geometry through the insights of spiritual science is outstanding. In a model society, someone of the caliber of Mr. Chester would be supported by a major university or similar social structure. At this time, however, only those of us who have some knowledge of spiritual science and its potential to transform pedagogical, medical, mathematical and technological fields can assume the responsibility to insure that the research of Mr. Chester continues.
We have followed and supported Mr. Chester’s work for over a decade. Mr. Chester is a remarkably talented person, integrating spiritual insights with highly skilled workmanship.”

The Challenge of Rudolf Steiner – A Film by Jonathan Stedall

A film about the unique insights and research of Rudolf Steiner
Filmed during 2011 – the 150th anniversary year of Rudolf Steiner’s birth – this two-part documentary by veteran filmmaker Jonathan Stedall tells the story of Steiner’s remarkable life (1861-1925), and explores the influence of his ideas and insights on a wide range of contemporary activities – education, agriculture, medicine, social and financial issues, and the arts. Just within the Santa Cruz area, the Waldorf School, Camphill Community, therapists, biodynamic farmers, and other initiatives all find their inspiration in Steiner’s ideas and philosophy.
