Life is a process of development and each of us is continually becoming.  The transformations that happen in early life are a gift of the gods and occur as a matter of course.  The potential for growth and change continues in potential throughout the human life as it comes ever more into the realm of our own freedom and responsibility.  This picture of unfolding can help us find what is essential to each stage of life so that we can live and work more consciously with ourselves and with others.

We will share life experiences and also the imaginations of transformation that we live with 

and that inform our strivings as we explore the meaning of aging.

The Alchemical Magic of
Wonder, Compassion, and Conscience

Sunday, April 30, 2017
10:00 am- 12 noon
(Followed by potluck luncheon)
With Jane Hipolito


“Wonder and Amazement, Compassion or Fellow-feeling, and Conscience – 

these are the three powers through which human beings, even while in the physical body, transcend their own limitations; through these powers, influences that cannot find entrance into the human
soul through the intellect and the senses ray into human life.”*


What do these three mighty forces involve? How can we integrate wonder, compassion, and conscience into our daily life? What difference does it make, for ourselves and also for the world, when we do so? With the aid of selected modern and contemporary artworks, we will take up these questions.

* Steiner, Rudolf, Love and Its Meaning in the World, lecture of May 14, 1912, “Love: The Mission of the Earth – III”, SteinerBooks, Anthroposophic Press, 1998.

Jane Hipolito is professor emerita of English, Comparative Literature and Linguistics at California State University, Fullerton. She was introduced to anthroposophy by Owen Barfield, whose writings she first encountered while she was in graduate school. Jane is an active member of the Los Angeles Branch, The Christian Community, and the Literary Arts and Humanities Section of the School for Spiritual Science.
