The Christ-Voice of Conscience

January 20, 2020 at 9:00 am - January 24, 2020 at 5:00 pm

With Rev. Bastiaan Baan

 

Christ – Odilon Redon

 

Conscience is a silent voice, that accompanies us during our whole life. We can try to shout down or drown out this voice, but sooner or later it will speak again.  How can we develop a deepened sensitivity for this faculty, through which – as Rudolf Steiner pointed out – Christ Himself speaks?
In this Open Course we will trace the development of conscience in the history of humanity and in our own biographies. Beyond the past and the present, we will try to imagine how the faculty of conscience can become a guiding principle for our future.

Open Course Suggested Contribution: $350.00  Canadian ($300 US) per person

If $350.00 Canadian ($300.00 US) per person contribution would prevent your participation you may consider contributing a lesser amount of $250.00. US or $200.00. US
