The pandemic presently gripping the world shows signs of continuing to harass humanity for some time. A study of pandemics through history reveals interesting patterns that we will share. Spiritual science helps us to find causes and responses, assisted by an understanding of events in the life of Christ. Seen historically or mytho-poetically, exploring these patterns and responses can strengthen us to deal with our challenging times.
Part One: Patterns in Pandemics—seen through the lens of star wisdom. We will examine the present pandemic and others through history to show
patterns in celestial events in relation to these phenomena.
Part Two: Background to Pandemics—as seen through Spiritual Science. The spiritual research of Rudolf Steiner points to unexpected and surprising
causes and effects of pandemics, with which each of us must grapple.
Part Three: Assistance from Christology—whether you appreciate Christ events as history or as mytho-poetic artistic activity, understanding the
Christ Impulse can help us find our place and roles in the present drama.
This course goes beyond personal biography to world events, yet comes back to how an individual can respond in one’s life.
