Adventures on the Symbolic Plane of Consciousness
Fair Oaks, 2010
As had been employed by mystery pupils of the past, modern explorers of the wisdom of self-transformation use symbolic imagery for enhancing their meditative practice. A specific practice which Rudolf Steiner called entering the astral body. Starting with the mandala as an archetype of consciousness, each session will use the methodology of breathing an image to enter into its symbolic content. Small workgroups will address the inner responses to these symbols using suggested protocols.
Symbols will include: the Mithras Bull, the healing Kore from Greece, the Ouroboros, the alchemical egg, the goddess Hygeia, Michael and the Dragon and the Fool in the Abyss.
