“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!
