My present tasks: Global School and College

The objective need of the time spirit led me in the last few years to develop two interrelated venues. The first aims to answer the perennial problem of how to work with Spiritual Science so that it can become a source of individualized creative work. For this purpose I am building a Global School that develops new ways of working with the most basic and challenging creative problems of spiritual science. (Transformation of thinking and meeting the other as event.) The second problem is how to implement Spiritual Science in the external world in updated form taking fully into account the real ongoing developments of contemporary consciousness. My new book “The Event in Science, History, Philosophy & Art” was written with this problem in mind. Based on this research, I am creating the Global Event College, incarnating not in a fixed physical center, but working through different centers, countries, times and places. The college’s faculty includes culturally and socially active people from the US, Europe, Israel and Scandinavia, all students of the Spiritual Event past, present and future. The College’s task is to learn how to individualize consciously the Event’s creative forces and then to express them through updated creative contemporary language in external cultural and social life.
