Preview of The Africa Seminary Module 3: 1st May – 3rd May 2020 by Michaël Merle Unlocking the Open Secret… through reading in the book of the plant world about life, growth and metamorphosis
It is to Goethe’s credit that he developed a scientific method of observation which develops an ability to observe the formative forces underlying the world of plants and which bind all plants into a meaningful totality. Goethe’s research showed him that “every process in nature rightly observed, wakens in us a new organ of cognition.” In the different botanical studies we will be undertaking during this module we will endeavor to stimulate a perceptual and conceptual comprehension of life in nature. We will discover the eightfold signature of life in the form-world of plants as a dynamic element and following Rudolf Steiner’s indications acquire a comprehensive overview of the twelve plant groups at hand of the cosmic influences of the Zodiac. The Divine expression in creation will thus be explored and considered.
