Time to Rise: A Heartbeet Youth Conference on Social Threefolding September 21 – 23, 2017
Since the Industrial Revolution, western civilization has been driven by economic forces to the detriment of freedom in cultural life, justice and equality for all in political life, and even economic prosperity, due to the concentration of wealth. Well-meaning social movements have sought to address this issue by transferring economic power to the government through communal ownership (communism/socialism), only to find that once again corruption and inequality prevail.
One hundred years ago Rudolf Steiner shared the radical insight that the high ideals of the French Revolution — Liberty, Equality and Fraternity — actually hold the key to social health, but only if they are applied to the appropriate aspects of life: freedom in cultural life, including religion and education; equal rights for all in the political arena; and in place of self-interest, fruitful associative collaboration amongst consumers and producers in the economic sphere to serve the needs of all.
You are invited to participate in a conference at Heartbeet Lifesharing Community in Hardwick, VT to explore these social ideals and engage with others in living into their relevance and creative possibilities in our real current situations: in schools, on farms, intentional communities and other social and economic organizations.
Please visit our conference website at www.threefoldingconference.com for the full schedule and further information. The program will be finalized by end of May. Registration opens May 1. Apply early because space will be limited.
