This course was given at Rudolf Steiner College for teachers who work with special needs populations. The general theme addresses the learning issues that arise from compromised sense perception. The role of imagination in promoting what is known as theory of mind is traced from the neurological roots of perception to the development of an inner work practice based on conscious formation of an inner organ of spiritual perception. The sequence, observe, depict, describe, represent and silence is explained as a methodology for developing such an organ of spiritual perception. This is then placed in the context of the phases of age appropriate education and the use of symbols as a healing force in an educational setting.

The human phantom is a concept given by Rudolf Steiner to describe the body of life forces that was the original plan for the sense activities of the human being before the fall created the complications of illness and death. Esoteric students in the Rosicrucian tradition strive to recreate the phantom again in their soul life by working with exercises to transform the daily life in the sense world. The practice of transformation can be called sacred sleeping. This workshop addresses the issue of the fall of humanity from paradise, its implications for human life and the techniques of sacred sleep.
