Join Mary-Anne Paterson for a weekend using the Healing Plant Colours to deepen our understanding of Rudolf Steiner's 'Druid Stone' painting.

Dr Rudolf Steiner created this ‘Druid Stone Sketch' very soon after returning to Dornach in late summer 1923, following his encounters with some megalithic pre-history Druid sanctuaries at Penmaenmawr Ilkley and Anglesey, and a series of unique British lectures that he gave during that time (now published and available).

In the late summer of that year, 1923, this significant sketch was then gifted to his colleague Dr Ita Wegman and an intensive period of ground breaking medical research ensued developing his new ‘Medicine for our Time’.

Shortly before he died in 1925, some of this remarkable collaborative medical work with Dr Wegman ‘The ‘Fundamentals of Therapy’ was published. It was his express wish that his Druid Stone pastoral sketch should be painted as a mural and placed in a medical setting. It is to be assumed this would have been painted in Healing Plant Colours which he had already developed and used for the vast ceiling paintings of his first Goetheanum.

'In our first introductory Art workshop we will research and paint with plant pigment in Emerson Carson Building surrounded by the healing biodynamic apothecary gardens and work towards an understanding of his intentions.'

Places are limited to 9 participants.

Future research workshops will follow in 2022.
