Workshops and Courses

Over the years I have given a large number of workshops at conferences, training centres and on individual invitation. No workshop is ever the same as the one before, as they are all interactive and depend on the questions and needs of the respective group. Here is a list of the subjects and scope:


Globalisation, Identity and Social Initiative

The final ten years of the last century brought into international political reality what had long been prepared as the Neo-Liberal economic plan. The WTO, TTIP, the World Bank and other international institutions have created a world dominated by the principle of private property ownership and free trade. Never in the course of history have the inequalities between people been so great, with over a billion people having nothing at all, and 1% of the world’s population owning the bulk of its assets. Added to this is the ruthless exploitation of our natural environment leading to desertification, climate change, enormous water shortages, the dying away of species and other issues that threaten to bring humanity itself to extinction.

The workshop is directed mainly at young people who feel the need to become active, to do something positive in regard to these problems. Interactive, based on the actual questions and prior information the participants bring with them, it should give some idea of how the system works and what initiative is possible.

Rudolf Steiner’s understanding of the human soul in its development and nature differ in many ways from those of his contemporaries and from those in our time. The workshop explores the fundamental differences of his views.

All the workshops are phenomenological and experiential, relying on the interaction of the participants through personal reflection and contemplation, small group discussions, visual aids and short presentations. The terminology is contemporary and every effort is made to maintain a common understanding of the words and concepts used.
