About the Foundation Stone Meditation Series at Anthroposophy NYC
Upon a suggestion of a long-standing member of the New York City Branch of the Anthroposophical Society in America, the new Program Leadership Group at Anthroposophy NYC reached out to the Eurythmy Spring Valley Ensemble to bring the Foundation Stone Meditation to Manhattan.
The members of the ESV Ensemble will lead public eurythmy workshops on the Foundation Stone Meditation for two Saturday afternoons in the spring (April 6 and May 11), culminating in an evening performance and presentation of all four panels of the Foundation Stone Meditation on June 8, the eve of Whitsun. The forms, costumes, and indications were given by Rudolf Steiner.
