Branch and study groups and the First Class meet at the Rudolf Steiner Centre
3743 Delbrook Plaza
Monday Night Members Group; Monique Walsh; 604-721-6445;
This group meets on the first and third Mondays of each month. For many years we have taken as the context of our work the theme of the year as given from the Goetheanum. Each member of the group does his or her individual work on the theme out of the suggested readings and other sources in preparation for the meeting.
We begin the meeting with the verse “Stars spoke once to man”. Out of the silence following the verse, a member initiates the conversation for that evening. The intention of the work is both to develop the theme from meeting to meeting, and to develop capacities for listening to one another and for discerning where the conversation can go out of what we hear from one another. Each meeting lasts for an hour and a quarter to an hour and a half. We close with “Stars spoke once to man”.
The group is open to anyone who is a member in good standing of the General Anthroposophical Society. There are currently up to nine members who participate on a regular basis.

This group, active since 1954, is Vancouver’s oldest study group. We delve into specific themes with depth. Our group is open to friends and members of the Anthroposophical Society in Canada. We begin each evening with Steiner’s verse “From the Luminous Heights”. We meet weekly from September to June; each meeting lasts about an hour. Twelve people take part on a regular basis.
