EVENT! OCCULT PHILOSOPHIES: An immersive workshop on Rudolf Steiner & the Western esoteric tradition. Live in Dublin or streaming/recorded! JANUARY 28!

12 Jan


I’ll be giving a lecture and workshop (complete with spiritual exercises) on Rudolf Steiner and the Western esoteric tradition here in Dublin on Saturday January 28, at the amazing spiritual spot – The Space Between!

It’s a 3 hour long workshop with some snacks and coffee in the break, along with lots of Q&A and community discussion.

The event is moderated by AEWCH guest and frequent collaborator Una Mullally.

Description of the event below.

Unfortunately because this is a collaboration with The Space Between, I can’t offer patreon patrons discounts, but your presence will of course be acknowledged and appreciated. And I’ll try to think of SOMETHING special to pass along to you, so if you DO sign up, let me know.

You can attend in person, by watching the event streaming, or by watching a recording afterwards! 

Below is the description. 


“Love is the only passion which must not be discarded in the pursuit of truth.”   Rudolf Steiner (1861 – 1925)

If you haven’t heard Rudolf Steiner’s name you might know about his many efforts – including Steiner schools (AKA Waldorf schools), biodynamic agriculture, Weleda, Camp Hill communities, Community Shared Agriculture (CSAs) – and more.

Or maybe you’ve heard that his occult explorations were the inspiration for Marvel comics’ Dr. Strange; that he influenced Rachel Carson’s writing of Silent Spring; that he inspired artists as diverse as Cy Twombly, Wssily Kandinsky, Saul Bellow, Andrei Tarkovsky, and the literary group the Inklings, which includes J.R.R. Tolkein and C.S. Lewis.

But getting into Steiner and his esoteric work – called anthroposophy – can be daunting, to say the least. With thousands of lectures and dozens of books filled with esoteric terms and gestures that would make a philosopher blush, it’s difficult to find a way into his vast body of work.

Join author and podcaster Conner Habib in this plain-language daytime workshop on Rudolf Steiner and the Western esoteric tradition. Together we’ll enter multiple doorways into Steiner’s work, engage in anthroposophical thought exercises, and create pathways for further exploration.  It’ll be fun and deep, complex and weird, respectful and irreverent all at once.

Conner Habib is the author of the international hit novel Hawk Mountain, and the host of the podcast Against Everyone with Conner Habib, a podcast which covers topics as diverse as occultism, punk rock, and radical politics.

Una Mullally is an Irish Times journalist, author, and activist.

This workshop goes from 11am to 2.30pm with a tea, coffee and snack break in the middle.

Hosted by The Space Between, whose mission is to lean into the edge of the emergent, and navigate the unknown with a lightness and depth.
