Dear <<First Name>>

I thought you might be interested in our alumni gathering next August. I am hoping that many of our volunteers can come as well as students. It will be such fun to meet up again!

I hope that you are well and am always really, really happy to hear what you are doing.

With warm wishes,

Yvette Dellsperger

"Listening to our Time,

Speaking to the Stars"

'Looking Back & Forward'

carved glass triptych by Jonathan Soper.

The stars once spoke to us.
It is world destiny
That they are silent now.
To be aware of the silence
Can be pain for our earthly being.
But in the mute silence there grows
What we speak to the stars.
To be aware of that speaking
Can be strength for Spirit-Man. 

Rudolf Steiner: new translation by Paul Matthews

Alumni Gathering, 7-11 August 2019

If you have ever studied or worked at Emerson College, you are warmly invited to four days of sharing, celebration, artistic work and collaborative enquiry into the questions:

  • These present times challenge our image of what it means to be human. What are they asking of us and of the worldwide community connected with Emerson College?
  • How can we deepen our insights into the forces of destiny that brought us to Emerson, which have led and will lead us forward?
  • How can we develop ways of living, learning and working together that enable us to meet the future with hope and trust?

The programme will include:

  • Times for meditative alignment 
  • Space for participants to share their Emerson-inspired initiatives 
  • Sessions of artistic work in a wide range of disciplines
  • Inspiring presentations on the theme
  • Dialogue groups practicing observation and awakening to destiny
  • Nature walks (guided or not!) and practical work on the estate
  • Open spaces for social (re-)connecting
  • Performances of many kinds
  • Opportunity to hear about and contribute to the future picture of the College

There will be some suggested pre-reading material to deepen our approach to the enquiry.  The detailed programme will be collaboratively developed to include a wide range of contributions by participants – leading artistic sessions, sharing their initiatives, offering mini-performances, sensing and thinking together.  We are sure that the many gifts which alumni bring will ensure a rich, warm and inspiring experience.

This approach will allow us to keep the costs modest: we propose a contribution of £170 per person (plus board and lodging): if some participants are able to pay more, we can offer reductions to others who are less able to pay.
