Historic Ohrid, Macedonia

The Christ Impulse in the Balkans:
Past, Present and Future
|Christ, Gallery of Icons, Prilep Macedonia|
With Stephanie Georgieff
Author of The Black Madonna, Mysterious Soul Companion
Friday Evening August 24th through Sunday afternoon, August 26th, 2018
Located near the shores of one of the largest fresh water lakes in the region, Ohrid is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Ohrid is famed for having one of the oldest human settlements in Europe, and is also home to the earliest Christian Community in the Balkans. Ohrid is a natural setting to hear the latest research from Anthroposophical author Stephanie Georgieff on the ancient origins of the Christ Impulse reflected in art and religious culture. In our transitional and uncertain times, getting in touch with our collective past can give deep and profound perspectives on the current struggles we are enduring. The Balkans have always been a land of transitions, of flowing from the East to the West. The history of how the the early church formed in this lush and beautiful landscape is often ignored in the West. Georgieff will be presenting thoughtful overviews of the important roots of our shared evolution can give glimpses of what will be meeting us in the future.
