The Easter Mystery:
Resurrecting the Salt of Thinking Workshop
The Easter Mystery is a profound celebration of the eventual transformation of
what an alchemist would call the corpse into a new spiritual existence. For Rosicrucian
alchemy, the corpse of the human was intimately linked to the patterns of
sensation and thinking that created the fall of man. The deed of Christ at Easter
teaches us how in future times, humans will extract from the corpse of their
sense bound thinking the salt of eternal understanding. When that happens human
beings will become what the Rosicrucian adepts called the Fourth Hierarchy.
In this workshop, Dennis Klocek will present a series of exercises designed to
illustrate the corpse-like nature of fallen sensation and contrast that to a Rosicrucian
approach to the redemption of the senses. This eventual redemption
is a recapitulation of what Rudolf Steiner calls the transformation of the human
phantom which was the central motif of the sacrifice of the Christ on
Golgotha. We will work with several different approaches to the task of loosening
and fixing the astral body. These approaches will involve working to move imaginative
pictures through the neurological pathways by following an image process inwardly
from the retina though the crossing points in the optic nerve eventually approaching
the kidney. We will then work to find the image of the kidney in the orbit of Venus.
This approach can be referenced in Rudolf Steiner's book: Anthroposophy, a Fragment.
