Dr. Bruce Meyer

A Retrospective Reading of His Works

For further information please call 1-705-728-7752
or e-mail info@novalisproject.com

Dear Friends,You are invited to join us at 87 Toronto Street on Sunday, March 1 at 3pm when Dr. Bruce Meyer will present a retrospective reading from his works.

As many of you know, Bruce Meyer has proven himself a star turn at our Camphill Community Action Award dinners. We like to give him the last word on such occasions to ensure the night's proceedings conclude on the uplifting, inspiring and joyful note his presence guarantees.

Our March 1 reading will allow Bruce's many fans a more in depth encounter with the insightful and enthusiastic reach of his poetic gift. Meyer's poetry is born out of a reverence for life, a heightened sense of language, a love of the ordinary, a sense of the universal in the particular and a willingness to delve into the heart of things.

Meyer has won accolades from fellow Canadian writers, too numerous to mention. Noting the expansive compass of his themes, poet/novelist/playwright, Marilyn Bowering wrote.... the reward is poetry of real sweetness and depth. The mind and skill at work here are a pleasure to find. Novelist, Ray Robertson has said that Meyer's poems possess a technical mastery that never belies their sure, searching nature.

Bruce's most recent book, Why Hockey is Our Game, is both a hymn to Canada's national pastime and a must-read book for those who love the game. His broadcasts on the Great Books for CBC Radio One remain the network's bestselling word CD series, and his volume, The Golden Thread was a national bestseller. In short, there is something for everyone in one or other of Bruce's forty-five books.

Bruce was a student at the University of Toronto when my late husband taught there some thirty years ago. I marvelled at his early output, which has steadily grown with the years to be nothing short of prodigious. He seems to be working on at least five books at a time, ideas buzzing around him like bees. Sit down and write me, they seem to clamour and we are here to wonder at the results!

Few cities have been as fortunate in their Poet Laureate as Barrie has been so let us gather at 87 Toronto Street in a spirit of celebration for the magic of words and the meanings they convey to which only a poet, such as Bruce Meyer is, can do full justice. This will be a FREE CULTURAL EVENT so please spread the word but not before you have reserved your own place (before February 21)!

Looking forward to your participation on March 1st,

Treasa

**NOVALIS SPECIAL EVENT**

Begin! Begin again...
a workshop with Michael Lipson, Ph.D.

Just as winter awakens into Spring, a natural process of dying and becoming can be reflected in the changing conditions of our lives. The ability to begin anew is the innate human capacity we can consciously exercise in any given situation. We are empowered to embrace each turning point in life as an opportunity to begin anew. And every moment can be a turning point.

In this weekend's workshop Michael Lipson will lead us in an exploration of the ever-new quality of beginning, a group process that includes practical exercises and meditations. We will see how an orientation toward endless beginning is the cure for "burnout" of all kinds and for the inertia that permeates our emotional and practical problems.  Beginnings are only starting points so we must accustom ourselves to the practice of beginning not once, but over and over again. If you are in transition, or should be in transition, then this workshop is for you!

INTRODUCTORY TALK by Dr. Lipson
Location: Hesperus Village, New Dining Room.

Cost: $20

WORKSHOP:
Saturday, Feb. 25, 9.30am-5.30pm/Sunday, Feb. 26, 9.30-3pm:
Location: Camphill Sophia Creek, 87 Toronto Street, Barrie Workshop admission: $150 (includes introductory talk, 2 lunches and snacks)

Michael Lipson, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist practicing in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. His work combines the insights of Rudolf Steiner with those of Zen Buddhism. He teaches meditation widely and writes on issues of consciousness, human development and meditative practice.

Fire and Rose,
a mystery of Love, in poetry and song

“Her presentation is pure ritual. Treasa O’Driscoll takes the audience on a journey into another world where people undergo a transformation.”
- Robert Sardello, author, Freeing the Soul from Fear

The rose is an eternal image of beauty and love, representative of an open heart. Fire is associated with inspiration, revelation and the descent of the Holy Spirit. T.S. Eliot predicted that all would be well when the fire and the rose are one. Drawing on her memorized repertoire of poems and songs, Treasa leads the audience in a meditative reflection on the theme. (Bring pen and paper)

Treasa O’Driscoll lives in Barrie and coordinates the Novalis Project. She is the author of, Celtic Woman, a memoir of life’s poetic journey (www.bluebutterflybooks.ca)

Celtic Woman is a magnificent chronicle of an individual's journey toward the process not only of self-healing, but of understanding and growing with the world around her…. There is a spirit of inquiry in this book that moves throughout these pages, animating every word and infusing the text with an energy that guides the will to love above the trials and tribulations of the world, and there it illumines as a beacon...
- Bruce Meyer, author, The Golden Thread.

Celtic Woman, is a rich feast of a book, part travelogue, part romance, part meditation -- and all of it poetry!  Like the best of memoir, it manages to touch on the most personal, intimate themes of a human life and at the same time to render them universal.  Readers will want to shout both Bravo! and Encore!
- Michael Lipson, author, Stairway of Surprise.

The Isenheim Altar
**HOLY WEEK SEMINAR**
An artistic approach to the mystery of Easter

The journey through the images of this work of art is in itself
a deeply meditative path with which to accompany the mood of this week as an inner preparation for Easter.

The Course
The painter Matthias Grünewald was a contemporary of Albrecht Dürer but not nearly so well known. The historical aspect of his life is steeped in mystery with few documented facts. It reveals however a genius on the level of Leonardo da Vinci. His artistic output was modest and yet the works he produced were of great significance. His most outstanding achievement is the Isenheim Altar which is situated today in a museum in Colmar in France. The luminosity of colour in this piece is unsurpassed and shows a mastery of technique and craftsmanship in preparing pigments, which even today cannot be entirely explained.

The Isenheim Altar was painted for the specific purpose of healing. It was commissioned by a physician, the abbot Guido Guersi, in order to assist him in the work of his hospice which specialised in the treatment of skin diseases such as syphilis, leprosy and especially St. Anthony’s fire, an affliction caused by ergot poisoning. Patients suffering these diseases were social outcasts because of the fear of contagion. The images form part of a large winged altar which describes the journey of healing more powerfully than any words can convey and it carries a deeply Christian message. It remains hugely relevant for our time too, as we grapple with such new illnesses as cancer, HIV and AIDS.

During this seminar we will walk this healing journey together, decode the messages of the paintings and experience their depth through our own artistic renderings and exercises in observation. The art sessions with Karin will help participants form their own personal relationship with this very powerful work of art and make it accessible to their own experience.

The Tutors

karin jarmanKarin Jarman is an art therapist at St. Luke's Medical Centre in Stroud, England.

“I have lived and worked with the Isenheim Altar since I first encountered the original in Colmar, France, over 30 years ago. It has accompanied me from the start of my journey as an art therapist and has continued to be a source of tremendous inspiration and guidance for healing work. I would not have wanted to have been without it. Although it was painted more
than 500 years ago, its relevance today is as strong as ever. I feel very privileged to work on this course in partnership with Michael whose depth of insight surpasses anything I had studied previously.”

karin jarmanMichael Schubert is an author and a teacher of children and adults.

“I was born in 1940 in Berlin. I studied Sports, Art, Craft, History, Geography and German. I have been a teacher, starting out as a class teacher in Germany and then spending five years at a German School in
Johannesburg (South Africa). In 1972 I began teaching at Waldorf Schools. I was one of the founders of the ‘Michael Gemeinschaft, Schweigmatt’, and the ‘Kaspar-Hauser School’ - a boarding school in the Black Forest and the ‘Freie Waldorfschule Schopfheim’. I lectured at various teacher training seminars in Germany and Russia. Since 1975, I have been doing research on Mathias Grünewald and the Isenheim altar piece. I have published several dramas, a book about Queen Ishtar and recently ‘Der Isenheimer
Altar: Geschichte-Deutung-Hintergründe’ (Publ. Urachhous, Stuttgart).”

The Details
The course begins on Palm Sunday, April 17th
at 7.30pm, with an introductory talk. It runs
9.30am to 5.00pm, Monday to Thursday, and
9.30am to 3.00pm on Good Friday, April 22nd.

Rites of Summer
A Celebration in Music & Dance

with pianist Rena Amiralieva
and movement artist, Dianne Chapitis

Rena Amiralieva was born into an acclaimed musical family in Baku, Azerbajan and was a seasoned performer by age 10. Subsequently garnering academic accolades and winning prestigious prizes in Russia and Europe, she emigrated to Canada twenty years ago. She has delighted audiences at summer festivals in Ontario with her “polished and brilliant playing” and her recent recitals at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Arts and Glen Gould Studio have established her as a concert pianist of rare accomplishment and repertoire. Rena has a keen sense of the elemental forces of fire, air, earth and water that attend all summer growth, forces that inform the music she chooses for this special programme that includes Liszt piano solos and choreographed interpretations by her fellow artist, Dianne, of the natural patterns and rhythms inherent in the music of Debussy that Rena plays.

Dianne Chapitis is a performance artist, choreographer and practitioner of the Mitzvah technique-an art of body alignment that informs her approach to dance and deepens her sensitivity to the movement and rhythm inherent in music. Her dancing incorporates patterns and activity seen in nature, a practice grounded in an honours degree in Kinesiology (University of Waterloo) ballet, modern dance, mitzvah technique, music and physics. She has performed in the Guelph Jazz Festival, the Distillery Jazz Festival in Toronto, a celebration of John Coltrane music in Syracuse NY, with classical musician Guy Few in Waterloo and Stratford musician, Loreena McKennett. In 2009 she created a dance solo for the University of Guelph choral concert, “Force of Nature”. She is also a member of this choir. Currently teaching in the opera department at the University of Toronto, Dianne maintains a private coaching practice and travels regularly to teach at the Juilliard School in New York.

Private Mitzvah Technique sessions with Dianne are available by appointment on Monday and Tuesday, June, 27/28.

Abeona Family Network presents:
The Three R's of Home life -
Rhythm, Routine, and Relationships 

a lively evening workshop for parents of young children

When adults and children fail to live their daily lives at a pace that can be 'digested and savoured', effects of stress, over-exertion and ill-health will often start to surface. Good rhythm and routine, on the other hand, lay the ground for habits that serve the best interests of all concerned, resulting in healthy relationships between family members that are based in heart centred and enduring bonds of love. 

Gene Campbell, has taught at the elementary level in public and Waldorf schools for 30 years. She is the founder of Chiron, a movement rooted in principles of Waldorf education and catering to the needs of the home-schooling community. Based in Ontario, Gene leads Chiron inspired conferences, summer intensives and workshops throughout North America. She is widely sought after as counsellor and mentor by numerous young parents who delight in her originality, wit and eloquence. A gifted teacher and wise elder, her insightful and practical advice arises out of a profound understanding and respect for the natural developmental patterns of childhood.

The Music of Bach
a performance/workshop 

featuring
Eurythmist, Dorothea Mier, and Violinist, Emmanuel Vukovich

Eurythmy was developed by Rudolf Steiner in the early part of the twentieth century. He believed that all art is the revelation of concealed laws of nature and gave the world this art of movement as a means of bringing expressive elements in music and poetry into visible form through the finely tuned instrument of the human body. This collaboration between Dorothea Mier and Emmanuel Vukovich is a wonder in itself arising as it does out of their individual dedication to the music of Bach. They will share the process of their working together in the course of this performance. Come prepared to be touched in a part of the soul where you have never been touched before!

Dorothea Mier attended Waldorf Schools in England in her formative years. Having graduated from Michael Hall School, she studied piano at the Birmingham School of Music. Residing in Dornach, Switzerland, from 1955-1980, she worked as a member of the Goetheanum Stage Group and was renowned as a teacher of eurythmy. She became the director of the Spring Valley Eurythmy School in New York State in 1980, a position she held for over twenty years. Now retired, she is free to conduct workshops worldwide.

Of Croatian and German descent and a native of Calgary, Emmanuel Vukovitch graduated from McGill University in 2007 in music and environmental studies. He was leader of the Lloyd Carr-Harris String Quartet which won several national and international awards. Awarded the Canada Council for the Arts Orford String Quartet Scholarship in 2005, he became the first recipient of McGill University's Schulich School of Music Golden Violin Award in 2006. Emmanuel co-founded Music for Farms in 2008, a movement he promotes in his concerts for Community Supported Agriculture farms in Quebec, Ontario and in New York State and in his daily working life as a biodynamic farmer in Quebec.

The performance will be followed by a light lunch.

Cost:

Performance and Light Lunch:
$15 single admission
$30 families

Performance only:
$10 single, $20 families

Agri-Cultural Rite of Spring 
A concert featuring virtuoso violinist, Emmanuel Vukovich, pianist/composer, John McDowell and celebrated cellist, Julia MacLaine

Emmanuel and John, who practice music and farming side by side, have formed an international initiative, Music for Farms, which works to revive and sustain local organic agriculture and farming communities through the arts. Julia MacLaine joins them for this special concert at Novalis Hall. The programme includes the music of Bach and several original works in contemporary and classical idioms, such as their own acclaimed composition based on the Parcival legend. African drum rhythms are also employed to great effect by this exciting Trio whose creative arrangements reflect a weaving of eastern and western traditions.

Juilliard and McGill trained Emmanuel Vukovich is the recipient of Canada's first Golden Violin Award, as well as the Canada Council for the Arts Orford String Quartet scholarship. His twin passions of farming and music are brought to expression in this artistic Rite of Spring. John McDowell is best known as composer of the score to Oscar winning Born into Brothels. He has toured with platinum selling rock/world music band Rusted Root and his internationally acclaimed band Mamma Tongue. Julia MacLaine has been consistently singled out by critics for her rich tone, sweet throbbing vibrato and superb musicianship. Her performances at Carnegie Hall, in Europe, North and South America and Iceland have established her as one of today's prominent cellists.

Towards a Culture of Peace: 
with Michael Lipson, PhD

Our world is governed by inner and outer hostilities.  Today, the world's precious resources of water, oil, air and arable land are only growing scarcer -- giving more cause for conflict.
Unless…Unless we develop a consciousness of peace and mutual gift-giving. Peace, however, depends not only on concord between humans, or between humans and the kingdoms of nature.  It requires concord between human beings and the heavens.  

Let us spend a weekend discovering the deep well-spring of generosity we can access within. Let us go beyond resources-to the very Source itself. The way is through group discussion and group meditation.  Using words, we can access the place before words, where we are truly at one.

Saturday, March 27 from 9:3am - 5:30 pm
Sunday, March 28 from 9:30am - 3:00pm

Michael Lipson, PhD, is the author of The Stairway of Surprise, and the translator of many works by Rudolf Steiner and Georg Kuehlewind. A Clinical Psychologist in independent practice in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, he teaches meditation internationally.

Cost: Complete Event $150
(includes Saturday and Sunday lunches and snacks)

The Novalis Project presents a workshop with Michael Lipson, Ph.D

Sat.-Sun., March 1st-2nd

Location: at Novalis Hall, 7841 4th Line, Angus, Ont.
Sat. March 1st: 2.30 pm-8.30 pm,
Sun. March 2nd: 9.30am-3.00pm
COST: $150 (including 1 dinner, 1 lunch and snacks)


Within You
And Among You

Inner work and the elements of human encounter

When spiritual work becomes sufficiently intense, inner life is communal life. This sense is captured in Luke 17:21, which is ambiguous in the original Greek:

Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within/among you.

The path of meditation is above all a path of interpersonal encounter, for it involves meeting the chosen theme and, ultimately, the Will from which the theme arose. Meditation worthy of the name does not take us away from each other, but leads us into play and collaboration that derives from a common creative source. Our themes for this weekend will be taken from the Gospel of John. John asks us to dissolve the husk of habit that separates us from one another and from the spirit. We will consider whether we live in a world of things or of beings, what it means to speak of the Light of the world, and whether we truly want to be whole.

This weekend workshop will invite participants to become increasingly present both to meditative themes and to each other. It will include exercises in which we encounter 'the other' as a source of meaning and love and that help us to see how we hide ourselves from divinity in all its aspects.

Michael Lipson, PhD, is the author of The Stairway of Surprise, a re-working of Rudolf Steiner's Six "Supplementary" Exercises, as well as the translator of many works by R. Steiner and by Georg Kuehlewind. A Clinical Psychologist in independent practice in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, he teaches meditation internationally.

A Watercolour Painting Course with Donald Hall,
art professor and water colour artist from Bolzano, Italy

The Mystic Mastery of Raphael

Saturday-Sunday, March 24-25, 2007

Raphael exalted the art of painting to an expression of the divine and revealed the spiritual dimensions of colour and form. We can discover the true purpose of art in the study of his work, which has endured the test of time as a source of beauty and transformation in human hearts. Drawing on Goethe’s classic theory, participants will create colour combinations that give entry to the secret world of Raphael’s creations. The hidden power of the good, the beautiful and the true to which the work of this painter attests will reveal themselves in these exercises. The course will also include short talks on the history of art as it relates to Raphael. As a painter working in Italy, Donald presents an informed perspective on the classical tradition and its relevance to modern art.

Mornings: 9.30-12.00am:
Learn to see colour and find the right technique. Explore a living process to raise consciousness and feeling with the guidance of a superb teacher.

Afternoons: 2.00-4.30pm:
Make colour sketches and light/dark charcoal drawings to express the formal nature of objects and their relationship to one another.
Please bring dry watercolours or a set of Pelikan watercolour cakes and brushes-suggested sizes small, three quarters and one inch. An easel can be provided if you do not have your own. Course suited to beginners and practiced painters alike.

Course fee including paper, lunches and snacks: $225
(a non refundable deposit of $35 is due before March 10)

Location: Novalis Hall, 7841 4th line, Angus.

“A mood of contentment prevailed during Donald Hall's opening talk and seemed to increase as participants applied themselves to his clearly articulated exercises and discourses on the history, meaning and purpose of art, delivered between painting sessions when we clustered in rapt attention around him.”

Right Speech: the art of shared humanity,
with Dr. Michael Lipson, clinical psychologist.

Location: Cornerstone, 78 Toronto St., Barrie

Evening Lecture: Sat, May 6, 7:30-9:00pm
In this evening's lecture, we will consider the practice of Right Speech. This is our most fundamental practice as humans in community and central to the eightfold path of the Buddha. The lecture stands by itself, but serves also as the introduction to Saturday's workshop. It is appropriate for teachers, counselors, and in fact everyone who speaks!

Workshop: Sunday, May 7, 9:30-4:30pm
This workshop will actively involve participants in exercises of Right Speech as discussed in Friday's lecture. The emphasis is on the power of meaning that precedes speech, or what Steiner called "the undifferentiated word-power". We will practice, in pairs and as a group, finding the kairos or right time to speak, and so bring focus and intuition to our interactions. Participants are asked to ponder, in advance, the first 14 verses of the Gospel of John.

Cost: Complete Event $100 (including snacks only)
Lecture only: $20
