“To truly know the world, look deeply within your own being; to truly know yourself, take real interest in the world.” ~ Rudolf Steiner

I just spent three fascinating hours over lunch today here in Zurich with Thomas Meyer, publisher of Perseus Publishing in Basel Switzerland.

Perseus has an extensive list of books on Rudolf Steiner and Anthroposophy.  Here is a link to their collection available in English.  Perseus also publishes a monthly magazine, The Present Age, dedicated to the advancement of Spiritual Science.

I was first inspired to read Rudolf Steiner’s works by my good friends Christopher and Martina Mann, who founded the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute  in East Troy Wisconsin. The Institute has helped to spread biodynamic farming in the United States. The challenge was that Steiner’s complete works are extensive –  where to find the time to read so much?

That problem was solved by Ann Watson of Salt Spring Island in British Columbia, who loves to read Steiner and offered to read to me as I drove across America. I have sped across thousands of miles of American interstates in the moonlight accompanied by Ann and her dramatic readings of Steiner’s lectures.

Ann is a great admirer of Thomas Meyer and has insisted for years that we should meet. As I am back in Switzerland, meet we did. What a memorable occasion! Thomas is a remarkable human – teacher, intellect, student and lover of life. It was like having lunch with a living library. I am glad I did not have an appointment following because we talked half the afternoon away.

I am hoping to have Thomas on the Solari Report this fall to help our subscribers learn more about Steiner and how Steiner’s teachings can help us successfully navigate the world today. So stay tuned!

And  compliments to the marvelous staff at the Quaglinos Cafe at Hotel Europe. Nothing supports superb conversation like a beautiful cafe with fine cuisine!

“Don’t worry if there is a conspiracy. If you are not in a conspiracy, then you need to start one.” ~ Solari Report motto

The GlobalBEM team came. These are the guys who create those life changing events, including SSP 2014 and 2015.

Robert Dupper came from Friesland.  Jeroen Van Straten came from Haarlem.  And one charming genius entrepreneur from the UK who shall go unnamed.

We conspired over lunch in the outdoor cafe. The sun was so strong, I bought black bowlers in the Museum store. We looked quite charming!

Then we went indoors and conspired for a few hours more until I had to return to the airport to fly back to Zurich.

The discussions were serious, inspiring, heated, interspersed with negotiations for what’s next. They shall remain confidential. The proof, however, is in the pudding. So let’s see what juicy events unfold as a result…

A tip of the hat to the great city of Amsterdam!

A US-developed weapon system that strikes the atmosphere with a focussed electromagnetic beam may cause global warming, the government today said and acknowledged that climate change is likely to reduce the yield of major crops like wheat and maize in India.

“The US has developed a type of weapon called High Frequency Active Auroral Research Programme. HAARP strikes the upper atmosphere with a focussed and steerable electromagnetic beam,” Environment Minister Anil Madhav Dave told the Rajya Sabha in a written reply.

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” ~ Plato

Bregenz is on the Western side of Austria, on Lake Constance, a lake on the Rhine which is the third largest fresh water lake in Central Europe. Austria, Germany and Switzerland meet here at the foot of the Alps.

The Bregenz Festival was founded in 1946. It is a performing arts festival held every July and August. The Festival is famous for its Seebühne (or floating stage), with a 7,000 seat open-air amphitheatre which is the location for large-scale opera or musical performances on a stage over water on the shores of Lake Constance.

During April and May 2008, scenes for the James Bond film Quantum of Solace were filmed on the Seebühne during a performance of Tosca.

On the invitation of Ulrike Granögger of the Academy of Future Science who teaches, among other things, the Pistis Sophia, I came to Lake Constance to attend Puccini’s magnificent opera Turnadot at this years festival.

The production on Friday evening played to a packed house. We sat down at sunset.
