A Whitsun Festival

05/29/2023 12:30 PM - 05/30/2023 01:45 PM ET


Bridging the Temple Between

The human being is a bridge between the past and the future.
The present is a moment-moment as bridge.
Spirit grown to soul in matter’s husk
comes from the past:
soul growing to spirit as seed encased
journeys toward the future.
Grasp future things through past ones:
hope for evolving things through what has evolved.
So grasp existence in evolving growth:
so grasp what will be in what exists.

~Rudolf Steiner

This Whitsun, let us bridge the temple between and celebrate our shared strivings towards the Spirit, in partnership with international anthroposophical communities around the world. The Anthroposophical Society in America (ASA) and the World Social Initiative Forum (WSIF) warmly invite you to a Zoom festival in which we will hear from five different anthroposophical organizations working internationally.

Rudolf Steiner spoke and wrote much about the Whitsun (from "White Sunday," also known as Pentacost).  Occuring on the 7th Sunday following Easter, Whitsun commemorates the moment when the Holy Spirit was received by the disciples of Christ in the New Testament.  Suddenly crowned with tongues of flame, the disciples are able to listen and speak in the language of the Spirit and bridge the cultural gaps that separate them from their brothers and sisters of the world.  Whitsun is a mystical fact of global awakening that we may reenact within our own lives. Inspired by this, we will gather and bear witness to our international community.

The Kevin Rohan Memorial Eco Foundation 
The principles at the heart of KRMEF are centered around their vision for Kevin to become a holistic, biodynamic, and socially responsible individual. The projects at KRMEF are meant to provide others the opportunities that Kevin was never able to have, and has inspired us to launch the foundation as a center for teaching others. Though our various work in biodynamic agricultural methods, early childhood education, medical services and community development, we aim to be of service to Nepal’s neediest communities. By cooperating with villagers and sharing our support, we can bring about the positive and sustainable changes so needed in Nepal. Villagers can learn to develop their own eco-friendly practices that benefit themselves and their family so they may be the change in their own communities as well.Click here to learn more
