Manifestations of Karma Study Group
January 13, 2021 - 7:15 pm Central (8:15 pm Eastern)

"... So when that which otherwise would be produced by the regular forces of the Earth is destroyed, a correction is brought about which on the whole works beneficially - even though man cannot see it at first - because there is a higher reason at work than can be perceived by man.  When the hail drives down into the fields, we can say that on the old Moon these forces which work in the hail were the regular ones, just as those are that work beneficially today in rain and sunshine; but no they rush in order to correct that which otherwise would be produced by the luciferic influence.  And when the regular course is re-established, they rush in again to effect further correction.  Everything that leads to further progressive evolution belongs to the forces of the Earth itself."

~Rudolf Steiner, Manifestations of KarmaChapter 7"Karma in Relation to the Forces of Nature, Volcanic Eruptions, Earthquakes and Epidemics", Hamburg, 22 May, 1910 ... focus of the January 13 meeting.

The lecture can be found online at the RS Archive (eLib) by clicking this link:

The Central Regional Council of the Anthroposophical Society in America invites you to join our ongoing  study conversation.  The study has been divided among four volunteers who will summarize their section to rebuild it as a foundation for our conversation. Please familiarize yourself with the lecture if possible so you will feel comfortable sharing your reflections and thoughts with the group.

This collection of lectures has been republished by Rudolf Steiner Press under the title: “Manifestations of Karma.”  This book is a translation from German of Die Offenbarung des Karma (Ga 120), published in English by Rudolf Steiner Press in 1996.

This will be a “Zoom” conference call allowing us an opportunity to see one another while conversing (or audio only if you prefer).  To connect to the audio/video-conference:

On January 9, over 150 colleagues, family members and friends, came together with one days notice for two wonderful hours of a gentle open space for sharing stories, verses, poems, and songs. Many the next day shared astonishingly similar experiences of Gene, showing that indeed he is fully awake and ready to work once more as always: He seems to find his rest in the creating, in the weaving.

A deep research question taken up by Gene was a lecture by Rudolf Steiner entitled ‘The Etherization of the Blood’, GA 130, October 1, 1911
