Pentecost

Pentecost

In this issue:

  • Whitsun, May 15:  What possibility might we focus on at Whitsun?  With the tongues of fire that descended on each one, the apostles experienced themselves as individuals, no longer connected to others through folk, race and family.  Dr. Steiner posits that through spiritual-scientific knowledge mankind is now in the position to discover what will unite mankind again.This can be an important act on our part in this time of strong antipathies and divisiveness.
  • How Can the Whitsun Impulse be Applied to Our Lives Today?  Sandra Burch offers some thoughts from Adam Bittleston.  A taste: “There are indeed tests we can apply in order to recognize the working of the Holy Spirit: the healing of divisions, and the protection of freedom. …where the Holy Spirit burns, differences of nation, class and age become less important, and the possibility of mutual understanding great.”
  • Pohala Place of Healing Welcomes Two New Colleagues –  Doctor Lisa Del Alba, ND and Benjamin Bell, LMT.   Dr. Del Alba approaches her practice from an Anthroposophical point of view.
  • “Preparing the Soil” for the Portland Area Camphill-Inspired Initiative The group plans to begin to offer therapeutic services for children and youth in the fall.
