Holding the theme of agriculture’s mission as co-creator of health in the time of globalisation and climate change, the 4 weeks Biodynamic Agriculture and Anthroposophy course invited participants to take a deeper look into individual being-ness of man and nature, dive into the depths of living essence and sensing our inter-be relationship as a bigger whole. With small group discussion and lively colloquium, we developed our individual connection to the theme through questions and exchange. The process invited us to act not to a moral code but into the situation of who I am in face of the challenges in our time, taking us in growing a solution from within.
The course contents are artfully flow in a 3 days and 7-day rhythm, lectures are woven with hand drawn infographic and art paintings. Weekly nature observation exercises take us to experience nature organism inwardly where meaning and sensorial perception unfold as one. Such artistic pedagogy and experiences opens up imaginative consciousness which unveil the way our world that we are engaged in could become than what it already is.
How beautiful our world would be if we carry such warm consciousness to not just understand but experience anew the inner nature of individual beings, and bring all beings the possible freedom to act and grow in our co-created ecological, social and spiritual climate.
