Building A Future Worthy of the Human Being

. May 18, 2012.

The Crazy Wisdom Bookstore & Tea Room continues it’s outstanding salon series this October with four nights of talks and conversations exploring the breadth and influence of anthroposophy and the work of Rudolf Steiner. This special series is titled Building A Future Worthy of the Human Being and each night will focus on a specific application of Steiner's ideas. On October 11 the discussion will be Biodynamics: Nutrition for the Soul, Healing for the Earth and will feature Paul Bantle and Annie Elder from The Community Farm of Ann Arbor. Steiner developed biodynamic agriculture in the 1920’s which set the foundation for the modern organic farming movement. As part of his exploration of anthroposophy and solidifying holistic ideals in an emerging global civilization, Steiner used biodynamic agriculture as a way to interconnect the soil, plants and animals with the humans that consume them. 7pm.
