“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility—these three forces are the very nerve of education.” ~Rudolf Steiner

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Earlier this month, T.H.Meyer, founder of Perseus Publishing, joined me in Zurich to record a conversation about Rudolf Steiner.  We will publish this introduction to Steiner and his work this coming week on the Solari Report.

Rudolf Steiner was an Austrian philosopher who founded the spiritual movement anthroposophy as well as establishing Waldorf education, biodynamic agriculture, and anthroposophical medicine.

T.H. Meyer is the author of Rudolf Steiner’s Core Mission: The Birth and Development of Spiritual-Scientific Karma Research and Milestones: In the life of Rudolf Steiner and the Development of Anthroposophy, among many other booksMeyer also publishes the monthly magazine The Present Age for the advancement of Spiritual Science.  His rich understanding of Steiner and his work and how they relate to building a human society and culture reflects Meyer’s lifetime of study and experience.

Meyer was introduced to me by Ann Watson, who for many years has read Steiner lectures to me while I traveled the North American interstates. You would be amazed if you knew how many thousands of miles I have traveled back and forth across the Northern Great Plains or Southwestern deserts, listening to and digesting Steiner’s philosophy. Thanks to Ann’s love for Steiner, I have been able to work my way through a significant amount of Steiner’s prodigious output.

Ann has recorded Steiner’s great classic The Agriculture Course for the Solari Report, which we will also publish this coming week.  The Agriculture Course was the series of lectures and discussions with which Steiner launched biodynamic farming in 1924.

In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest in financial and geopolitical news.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Australian filmmaker Jennifer Peedom’s 2015 documentary Sherpa. This film tells the story of the Sherpa people of the Himalayas in eastern Nepal and their spiritual and economic relationship with Mount Everest.  The film was made in 2014 when an ice avalanche killed 16 Sherpas who were supporting Mount Everest expeditions. It tells the story of the risks taken by the Sherpas over many decades, of the avalanche and the subsequent events that lead to the cancellation of the 2014 and 2015 climbing seasons.

Talk to you Thursday!

“When you become interested in biodynamic agriculture, you do not get very far into it before you are confronted with Rudolf Steiner. The sheer productivity of Steiner’s life is somewhat daunting: over 6,000 lectures, dozens of books, and innovative approaches to education, the arts, medicine, working with people with special needs. An extensive secondary literature exists, and important work has been done, in each of these fields. And if this were not enough, Steiner provided a methodology for spiritual development.” ~Hilmar Moore

By Catherine Austin Fitts

The Agriculture Course by Rudolf Steiner (Text Here) was a series of eight lectures given by Steiner in 1924 in response to a request by a group of farmers concerned about the future of agriculture. These lectures became the foundation for biodynamic farming.

Ann Watson has generously donated her readings of The Agriculture Course for Solari Report readers.

From the transcript:

After many years of inquiries, I have committed to create an investment screen based on the Solari Model. I have worked on it intermittently during 2016, with plans to offer it in 2017.

The creation of a Solari screen responds to subscriber, client, and colleague requests. Too often, an investor opens a statement, finds a stock he cannot live with, and calls to ask that it be sold. Or the investor worries that he or she owns stock in companies that will not successfully navigate the current environment. Hopefully, these risks can be reduced or avoided if investment advisors choose from a list of pre-screened companies.
