Notes From the Foundation Stone of Love
By Karen Rivers, Ph.D

Karen began by giving us the history of he Foundation Stone Meditation. It was given by Rudolf Steiner in 1924, to be a guiding light for the future of Humanity. Within the four verses lies a path for our evolution, and the evolution of the Earth.

She spoke about the Foundation Stone and it’s relationship to Nature, reminding us that within every human being lives all of Nature. When we have dominion over our Astral, Etheric, and Physical body, we will be a healing force for Nature. Our Future is to transform our consciousness and to become “pure Love”, so that we can work to build the foundation of Love on the earth.

The endeavor of human beings to bring this meditation to realization within themselves constitutes a step toward building a foundation of love within oneself and the relationships in which one engages, by awakening spiritual memory, spiritual awareness, and spiritual vision.

Alongside her sparkling lectures, she led us in movements that helped us to embody the four verses of the Foundation Stone of Love. These were then put to music by Cesar Franck, played poetically by Marcia Burchard.

We hope you can join us next year near Rudolf Steiner’s Birthday! February 27,28, March 1, 2015
