Eugene Schwartz will be reflecting on Rudolf Steiner and ‘the intervowen destiny of nicotine, alcohol, and anthroposophy’.
Since the time of the ancient mysteries, toxic substances have played a role in the dimming of ordinary consciousness and the awakening of spiritual faculties. In his lectures on esoteric Christianity and other subjects, Rudolf Steiner indicated that in the modern age substances such as alcohol and nicotine no longer served a spiritual purpose. In tonight’s lecture, Eugene Schwartz examines the interesting ways in which cigarettes and wine have been woven into the anthroposophical movement in the twentieth century, and discusses what we may expect in the twenty-first.
At the Anthroposophical Society in New York this upcoming Saturday.
