It`s advised to take part in the Travel Week (13th to 20th) in order to take the most out of this retreat.
Retreat limited to 10 participants.

Themes are: megalthic culture and their social impulse (back then and for today); the Druidic culture and their mission; Celtic Christianity (the iro-scotisch monastic impulse, Columban and others); the roots of the „renewing of the Mysteries“ by Rudolf Steiner as an impulse of reintegrating the Western Mystery stream into the Anthroposophical movement; The meanig of the meeting of D.N. Dunlop and R. Steiner; Ita Wegmans impact in 1923 (Penmenmawr) for the Christmas Conference 1923/24 in Dornach (founding of the anthroposopical society); Dunlops „Summer School“ impulse as a „new inauguration of a new stream withing the anthroposophical one“ that Steiner celebrated as something important for the future; King Arthurs round table (pre and post christian) as a historic model of social life and Steiners „reverse cult“ and „Saturn path“.
