Warm greetings and Happy New Year!
2016 promises to be a big year for the Anthroposophical Society in Canada. The website for the Society will be launched shortly.
We have the North American conference Encountering Our Humanity in Ottawa in August, with its wealth of speakers, artistic workshops and presenters (read interview with Arie van Ameringen in Winter Glimpses/enews). You can now see all the information on the website, and register there. You won’t want to miss this event! Many thanks to Gary Burak for such a beautiful design for this website, and to Jean Balekian for the design of the conference logo.
There will be a brochure about the Conference mailed out to all ASC members at the beginning of February, which includes details for registration by mail.
As we begin this year, the library collection of the Society has moved from the basement of Hesperus to a smaller room on the second floor. This is a lovely space, with lots of light. There will be an opening to celebrate this new location, on February 5th, 7 to 8 pm. Please join us at Hesperus for a viewing, conversation, and refreshments.
As a result of the move, we have a selection of duplicate Rudolf Steiner books and lectures that we are offering to Groups and Branches who may wish to add to, or start their own libraries.
I would like to add that it is our intention to support the work in the Groups and Branches in any way we can. We would be interested to hear from you, the members, if you have suggestions about how we can be working together.
Dorothy LeBaron, on behalf of the Council
