A reader writes us and we respond inside with an audio: “Can you share with me any insights you may have as to how the new paradigm of pedagogy that used to be called Waldorf might meet this Covid19 crisis and maintain the healing impulse that used to be the heart of the new pedagogy. What are the truly Rosicrucian and Christic mean of meeting the coming school year?

Some of us in Oregon are seeking to form a collaboration, even a College of educators, where a healing, Christic pedagogy can still be practiced. It is new territory”

Modern initiation is open and no longer simply a personal matter, it now includes family, community, and the world at large. The modern initiate comes to master the “Art of Life”, and then proceeds to share it with an ever greater community of friends. Vows of secrecy bound the initiate of the past, but the modern initiate is asked to share the wisdom, hope, and love that arises from the three stages of 21st century initiation. These three stages have been the foundation of many mystery centers in the past, but now the personal development of ancient initiation must become the social development of humanity as a whole – we must become selfless representatives of the spirit.
