Calendar of the Soul

Week 27

When to my being's depths I penetrate,
There stirs expectant longing
That self-observing, I may find myself
As gift of summer sun, a seed
That warming lives in autumn mood
As germinating force of soul.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 1

When out of world-wide spaces
The sun speaks to the human mind,
And gladness from the depths of soul
Becomes, in seeing, one with light,
Then rising from the sheath of self,
Thoughts soar to distances of space
And dimly bind
The human being to the spirit's life.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

As well as the main Course, lectures were given, in Torquay and in London, to Members of the Anthroposophical Society. These lectures have been published with the title: Cosmic Christianity and the Impulse of Michael. Karma in the life of Individuals and in the Evolution of the World.

Dr. Steiner also gave a course of lectures to teachers who were shortly afterwards to found the first school in England (now Michael Hall, Forest Row, Sussex) based upon the principles of education of which he was the inaugurator. These lectures have been published in a volume entitled, The Kingdom of Childhood.

Performances of Eurythmy by artists from the Goetheanum were given both in Torquay and in London and before Dr. Steiner left this country he delivered two lectures to doctors and medical students in London, also an Address and Public Lecture on Spiritual Values in Education.
