The Inner Life Course


Rudolf Steiner College, 9200 Fair Oaks Blvd, Fair Oaks, CA 95628

From an esoteric point of view the purpose of human life on earth is to learn how to transform fixed beliefs into flexibility of soul. This transformation takes place when individuals consciously engage their inner life by establishing an inner work practice. The inner life course will focus on the methods for establishing such an inner work practice. Working imaginatively with alchemical symbols and motifs from the natural world will be the daily activity each day. Lectures on the physiological basis for cognition and the feeling life will be followed by practical exercises in imagination as a tool for spiritual research. Afternoons will be devoted to engaging the principles of personal ritual as a means for strengthening the soul forces so necessary for deepening spiritual insight.

Topics will include:

  • alchemy of dreams
  • challenges of the threshold
  • principles of personal ritual
  • creating sacred space
  • and navigating inner planes.
